HOW COULD HE DO THAT?

Posted by Faron Franklin on Friday, February 20, 2009, In : Faron's Footnote 

 

There are moments in your life that become life defining moments.    Slices of life that try your character and offer God an opportunity to see what you are made of on the inside.   These moments also allow the tested to look at their reflection in the mirror.   Life defining moments are powerful and have the possibility to change your life.  

 

It does not happen everyday, but when it does---you know it---and you never forget it.  That is why it is called a life defining moment.  You mig...

HE IS PREPARING ME. . . EVERYDAY!

     When I walk through the halls of a hospital, I am reminded of our life’s purpose—- preparation for eternity.  We were not made to last forever, and God uses NOW to get us ready for Heaven.

     As I sat in the ER at the bedside of my seven-year-old son this past week I thought about the frustration of all of life’s problems.  I questioned my Heavenly Father, “God, why does this sweet little one have to go though this?  Has not our family gone thoug...

Dealing with Death - My Personal Experience
     Today, it has been 12 years plus 45 days since I sat at the bedside of my Mom.  As I held her hand I observed her weakened condition.  Her breathing—-shallow, her heartbeat—-irregular; her body—-tired.  The nurse administered more medication and whispered in my sister’s ear, “Dear, it won’t be long.” Only an hour later I watched her lungs take in air one last time.  Now for the first time in many day...

THE HORRIBLE MISTAKE

Posted by Faron Franklin on Monday, February 16, 2009, In : Faron's Footnote 

First appeared May 30, 2008

Recently I was out of town with two of my boys; Garrett is six and Isaiah is four.  Like many people, my full schedule had put me in a hurry but I had to make that important stop at Wal-Mart before going home.  Like most errands that one tries to complete quickly with small children, you hope to be in and out without any interruptions.  Deep down inside though you know it is not going to happen.

We retrieved the object of our affection and as we were making our ...
