The Beyond Single Manifesto

A National Day of Prayer Post & Poster

Thank You for your interest in The Beyond Single Manifesto. I wrote this manifesto two years ago between Easter and Pentecost. One of my favorite Biblical characters is Peter. I just love the tension in the relationship between Jesus and Peter. I think this relationship is one of the most realistic relationships in the Bible. […]

A gift of complete surrender

I took this photo in the spring of 2009 , right when I first started blogging. These trees lived between my home and my studio. I cried for days when the flood over watered the roots of the Wisteria Vine and it’s trellis lowered itself to the ground in a gift of complete surrender. Humility is […]

We are thankfully counting the days until High School Graduation!

The planes are flying low. The dogs are barking. The birds are chirping. Squires are climbing. Trees are bending. Water is standing. It’s Spring time in Tennessee. I walk up the stairs, open a door, look out a window to find my only son has created a beach of his own making. There is a […]

The porch of prayer and plenty

My Grand Daddy was a sharecropper in the south. He worked on Old Man Man’s farm in Franklin Tennessee. He had many secrets, which he taught the whole lot of us. As children we would joy to cop a squat with him on the front porch, while Grand Ma Lillian snapped green beans on the […]

Pick A Cup And Pray 2.0

The picking of cups for praying

Creating a life of prayer

But he knoweth the way that I take:

But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold. Job 23:10 (KJV) Write the prayer below in your own words. Dear Lord, I desire today that you will use my life as a channel of your love. Only the love of Jesus Christ trumps hate.
