Oh Be Careful Little Tongue What You Say

A few years ago, I read a book by Brother Andrew entitled "Light Force: The Only Hope For The Middle East". I have to say that this book, along with another book by the same author, entitled "Secret Believers", gave me much to...
Are You Willing?

Thou Art With Me

A couple of years ago, while my husband and I were in Missouri visiting our friends, Kirk and Beth, they took us to see Meramec Caverns. I have to say that while I do not generally like small narrow places, I do like caves and I have been to a few in...
The Challenges That We Face

Step Into The Water

The time had come to step into the land that God had promised them and take possession of it. Between them and the land however, there was a barrier, the Jordan River. Now while crossing the river in itself might be a challenge, the Bible tells us...
The Whisper Of Love

More than 45 years have passed and yet the memory of what happened that day is firmly etched in my mind. I could not tell you the date but I can take you to the place and point to the spot where I heard the whisper of love. I had heard about it...
The Long Detour

I blinked when my husband told me what he believed that God wanted him to start graduate school in September 2013 so that he could get his Master of Divinity and serve as a hospital chaplain. The chaplain part did not surprise me. When my husband and...

Living On The Claim

Why Not Me?

"Why me?" It is a question all victims of cancer eventually find themselves asking. They ask themselves why some of their own cells suddenly are not behaving like, well, all the other trillions of cells in their bodies. They ask themselves...
And Then Came The Morning!

It was the darkest of all moments. All hopes and dreams had been dashed to pieces. The love story had been turned into an unimaginable horror story and as far as those who had witnessed it were concerned it was all over. It was done. We can only...
The Gift That Doesn't Stop Giving

Currently, in the United States we are permitted to deduct charitable contributions to non-profit organizations which in addition to secular organizations can also include churches and various other ministries provided they are tax-exempt. The purpose...
The Song That Never Ends

For nearly seven months, things have been rather difficult for me emotionally. I won't go into detail but it was like there was one upheaval after another and truthfully it was during that time that I experienced emotional pain like I had never...
It Looks Good, Sounds Good, And Feels Right But Is It?
Published
This morning I read an excellent blog by @watchmanjohn entitled The True Light of the World Illuminated. I think his blog is a very important one for us to read. We must take great care when we hear, study or teach the Word of God to guard against...
But I Can't See It!

But Why Not Me?

There is an idiom in English that says, "When it rains, it pours." It simply means that sometimes when one bad thing happens to us, other bad things seem to follow in rapid succession. Welcome to life as we know it on the Planet Earth....
