Come, Let Us Pray

I am not much of a gardener. I do best with hardy plants that can pretty much be ignored for long periods of time when I lose interest in them. My friend Kbird has a gift for gardening. When she moved to her new house in northern New Zealand a few...

How We Should Live

Give Us This Day

Sometimes You Just Need A Hug
Published
One of the things we are wired to do is "fix" things. When we know that someone is in trouble, we want to fix it. When we know that someone is experiencing a tragedy or loss, we search for words to say in order to make it better. The problem...
He Cares For Me

For some of us, this is often easier said than done. Some of you are like me. You race over to the Shepherd with your problem. You frantically bleat out what the trouble is. He assures that He will take care of you and that you are safe (even if you...

A Closed Fist Or An Open Hand?
Published

And If That Doesn't Work, Use A Hammer
Published
Most of us have been guilty of it at one time or another. I daresay that some of us have perfected it to an art form and if we do not carefully guard our tongues, we will take a verbal hammer to someone faster than you can say... well you know what I...
But Will You Receive?

A blog by B2Y entitled God Is Not A Riddle Nor Is He An Enigma took me back to the days when I was an elementary school teacher. Compared to my young students, my knowledge and wisdom was vast. I was their teacher and they were my students. It was my...
