Immerse: Messiah - Week 14, Day 66
on November 24th, 2020
Do I write about Thanksgiving or Christmas? This time of year is great because topic choices are so easy! But this week’s blog is on the gospel of John – which doesn’t have a) a lot of thankfulness or b) a Christmas story! So… no easy topics here. In fact, the gospel of John presents a very difficult-to-grasp kind of Gospel. Don’t get me wrong – it’s the same gospel message as the rest, but rather...  Read More
Immerse: Messiah - Week 13, Day 64

I told myself I wasn’t going to write about Hebrews 11. Everyone always writes about Hebrews 11. I think I’ve written about Hebrews 11 already this year. Do any other chapters in Hebrews exist?! It’s hard to say because we hear about Hebrews 11 all the time.I was set to write about James. I love the book of James. I literally had the entire book of James memorized a few years ago. In fact, here’s ...  Read More

Immerse: Messiah - Week 12, Day 56
on November 10th, 2020
“His intentions were pure.”“His heart was in the right place.”“He meant well.”These are some of the phrases I have heard many times throughout my life, and I’m sure many of you reading this have heard these phrases or have even spoken them about someone at one time or another. We usually say them to our kids, or someone else’s kids because they were trying to help, but really were making things si...  Read More
Immerse: Messiah - Week 11, Day 51
on November 3rd, 2020
My name is Peter. Actually, my full name is Peter Stephen Ramsey. I was named after my grandfather. His name was Simon Peter Heilig.  I don’t know much about him except that he liked the Dolphins and loved my grandmother.  That’s where the “Peter” part of my name comes from.  My middle name even has a story.  When I was born, my dad was overseas serving in the army and the original plan was to spe...  Read More
Immerse: Messiah - Week 10, Day 48
on October 27th, 2020
Being the mom of three very independently minded children, I have become very adept at translating “bicker-ese” (and yes, I did just make up that word). I can usually tell when an argument has gotten past the point of no return. If you’re a sibling yourself, you’re probably just as good at recognizing this same limit. One minute they’re merely airing their grievances, and the next it’s an all-out ...  Read More
Immerse: Messiah - Week 9, Day 42
on October 20th, 2020
When I first saw The Greatest Showman in theaters, I ended up missing a critical portion of the movie because I had to go to the bathroom. Being so focused on the excitement of seeing a movie I really wanted to see for such a long time, I forgot to go before the movie started. Because I was so ignorant of what I needed in that moment, I missed the most pivotal part of the movie!Jesus’ disciples we...  Read More
Immerse: Messiah - Week 8, Day 37
on October 13th, 2020
A few weeks ago, I was wrestling in prayer about something, and I continued to feel anxious about it even after praying. It was kind of annoying. I was even losing sleep, and that was just unacceptable because this girl needs her sleep.One morning as I was praying, I had the thought, “Not worrying starts with joy.” I always couple not worrying or being anxious with prayer and specifically with tha...  Read More
Immerse: Messiah - Week 7, Day 34

My father-in-law, Joe Mize, worked for Sysco Foods for more years than I can remember.  If I recall correctly, he started out as a route driver on a sales truck delivering food and supplies to restaurants and different customers.  Over the years, based on his performance and work ethic, he moved up the leadership ladder until eventually becoming one of the vice presidents at the Jacksonville hub o...  Read More
Immerse: Messiah - Week 6, Day 28
on September 29th, 2020
Galatians 6:9“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone – especially to those in the family of faith.”A few weeks ago was the anniversary of the death of one of my favorite musicians. September 19 marked the 23rd anniversary of his quick a...  Read More
Immerse: Messiah, Week 5, Day 22
on September 22nd, 2020
Some very powerful words struck me as I was going through the reading for this week’s Immerse: Messiah blog.  It talks about our foundation, and not just the materials we use, but the importance of how we choose to build. We are given this warning on page 130 as we read through 1 Corinthians, “But on the judgement day, fire will reveal what kind of work each builder has done.” It reminded me of th...  Read More

Home. Made. Fudge.No statement may make your mouth water like your grandmother’s closely-guarded fudge recipe (one which – even when you make it exactly to measurements still doesn’t taste quite right).Whetstone Chocolates, based in St. Augustine, began their business by making one recipe – homemade fudge. Their focus since 1967 has been to make the best chocolate around, and it all started with f...  Read More
