Devotionals from the Mimosa Lake neighbors especially 


 The recession has left River Ivery and her Mimosa Lake neighbors feeling isolated and hopeless.  River knows something must change.  But how?  God's answer is the Winter Visitor.  With loving presence, the Visitor offers renewal to the neighbors.  But will they take it?  Only the coming of spring will tell.  
Thanks to the eagles that wintered at Mimosa Lake, the neighbors are looking forward to spring.  But are they just standing on Leda Clay?  Join River and all her Mimosa Lake neighbors as they rely on their faith to give them sure footing through an ever-changing landscape.  With God’s help, they just might learn that falling down a slippery slope can land you into unexpected blessings.

The neighbors have come to expect the unexpected at Mimosa Lake - and to rely on the eagles to fly in with the promise of better days on their wingtips.  Yes, the eagles are nesting on Scout Point Island, but where are those better days?   
  River Ivery can hardly function: January brought her unimaginable fears to fruition.  How can Thadius Sandberg show River his real feelings, especially now?   Herbert Potts is in deep: how can that happen to such a righteous man?   Join River Ivery, Dock Crayton, GeorgiaLemonn, Missy Wright, Herbert and Selma Potts, and all the Mimosa Lake neighbors as they are tested in a firestorm of fear, grief, heat, lust and loss.  Will hope, kindness, understanding - and love - help them keep their faith and rise from the ashes? 
With God’s help, and under the eagles' watchful eyes, the neighbors may discover that the strongest spring sprouts grow from fall's ashes. Welcome back - to Mimosa Lake!

Mimosa Lake

December 2011 finds Mimosa Lake cluttered with unfulfilled wishes, empty houses, strange people and tempers flaring.  The eagles are roosting on Scout Point Island, but like many graces, the neighbors are almost taking their presence for granted.  What a Christmas Season!  River, Dock, Georgia, Alvin, Tim and all the neighbors are searching for a little joy and a place to rest.  It isn't easy to find room at the Inn - especially when it's burned down.  Sometimes, peace only comes when we stand in the cold at the edge of the manger.  Walk with the neighbors as they seek shelter - and find their joy - in The Nativity.


At first glance, everything seems quiet at the Old Oak Tree, but take a closer look.  Peek into the secret lives of some of creatures who come to: , work, hide, jump, run, rest or just be near – the star of the forest – the place where it’s all happening . . .  the Old Oak Tree.
What’s the world look like from a bug’s eye view?  The bugs watch everything around them - especially the birds.  Butterfly, Moth, Ladybug, Spider, the Honeybees and so many other bugs are just waiting to tell you secrets about their feathered friends.
