Denise’s writing blessed us each week earlier in the life of this blog.
She graciously agreed to return to share the writing space with me. You will be the winner.
I first met Denise—a missionary kid—in Brazil when I move to Sao Paulo to work with a team of missionaries. I was a 22-year old kid—and she was eight. Today, that seems like remembering another world.
The little girl grew up and followed the steps of her mom and dad. Godliness and brilliance did not fall far from the tree. Denise developed into a wise reflective woman who loves God above all else. Denise lives the traits of her parents. They are traits of Jesus.
As a child, I heard stories of her great uncle Otto Huff who ministered to my own grandparents and their seven children in the House, New Mexico area.
Many members of the Huff family crossed my path and became friends. Through the years, I’ve met at least 20 members of the Huff clan. Denise’s cousins Allen, Bruce, Cecil, Charles, Dale, and Norman, along with their spouses set examples of Jesus for countless others.
Her late cousins Norman and Lurline, were dear friends of my own family during our Abilene, Texas years. They reflected the Lord’s image more than most people who pass through this life. I remember sitting by Norman one Sunday morning as he told me the story of my own granddad loaning him the money to return to his final semester at Abilene Christian College.
You get the idea–this is a wonderful Christian family.
Denise is a freelance writer and blogger. She authors her own blog at CoffeeAtMyTable.blogspot.com. She praises her husband John as her greatest encourager.
Denise writes to cheer on other Christians in their walk with God. Her heart is especially tender for those who’ve not found God.
She loves to draw attention to God’s wonderful gifts in this world by using her gifts and resources to magnify God.
Whether or not you follow Jesus you will profit as she joins me once again on the pages of GodReflection.
She often closes her posts with the comment, “just wondering.” That characteristic makes her writing go deep. She is always wondering about our grand God.
I hope you will join with her on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays as she once again reflects on GodReflection.
