Can We Obtain True Joy And Peace Without Sorrow And Suffering?
Published
Sorrow and Suffering. This is a topic people in general like to steer away from. It is not something we like to think about. We love to read scriptures which make us feel cozy and sing joyous songs. Joy! What a beautiful word! I love talking about the...
The Transcending Love Of God
Published
It was a night of horror. What had begun as an evening celebrating a successful maiden voyage of the Titanic (it was scheduled to arrive in New York harbor two days later) had turned into an unthinkable nightmare. The vessel of whom men had boasted...
The Best Of Good Intentions
Published
Good intentions, we all have them. We think about something and we even say we're going to do but somewhere along the way, we change our mind or we even get distracted. That is what happened to me last night. I'd mentioned in a comment to...
Keep The Porch Light Burning!
Published
Back in July 2007, my son abruptly told me he thought I should blog. I laughed at the very idea of that but it kept going around in my head. I didn't want to just go anywhere though. Any old place did not appeal to me and I didn't want to end...

On September 16, 1620 a ship called the Mayflower set sail from the Port of Plymouth in England and headed toward Virginia in what was then referred to as "The New World". It carried 102 passengers. Although the 180-ton ship had been...
Let His Little Child Come In

Jesus loves me! He who died heaven's gate to open wide; He will wash away my sin, let His little child come in. --Anna B. Warner How vividly I remember that Sunday morning when I knelt down and simply told Jesus I was sorry and asked Him to...
No, We Are Never Alone

Earlier this morning, I was reading a blog called Christianblog Announces A New Polling Feature posted by Christianblog. When I got to the last paragraph I read the following words which jumped out at me: If you are alone today - you are not alone -...
Count Your Many Blessings and See What God Has Done

Sitting here in the semi-darkness, I can almost hear the voice of my grandmother singing: When upon life's billows you are tempest tossed; When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost, Count your many blessings, name them one by one, And it will...
Keep Your Eyes On The Conductor!

Every Tuesday afternoon from 2:45-3:30, my students meet with a music therapist for a class which uses music to teach social skills to children. The curriculum is still being developed by one of our second grade teachers and another music therapist....
A Simple Gift of Love
Published
On Monday morning, when I opened my email, I received two beautiful surprises. To anyone else they would have meant very little but to me, they were far more precious than the richest jewels or the purest gold. You see, they were gifts from the heart...
The Power Of Our Prayers
Published
I sat on the hard church pew swinging my legs back and forth to keep them from falling asleep. My eyes never left the screen however, as I watched the filmstrip which accompanied the audio recording of Ethel Barrett telling a "missionary...
There's Nothing More Precious Than A Gift Of Love
Published
A number of years ago, one of my students shyly slipped a little card into my hand right before Christmas. I opened it up and learned that her parents had purchased a "gift of a llama" through Heifer International in honor of 6 people. I was...
A Few Thoughts About Church
Published
I have always been associated with a body of believers. I have never been an unchurched Christian. Even when my husband and I felt it was time to change churches a few years back, we prayed and God led us to a new church immediately. There was no...
A Little Direction Here Please
Published
I left school on Tuesday morning due to illness. Being like most elementary teachers I balked at the idea of leaving the sub with no plan. In primary education there is much more involved in simply picking up a textbook and teaching a lesson. Plus if...
This Is Why We Never Give Up
Published
Many years ago, as a young wife and mother, God used a passage of scripture to help me focus on Him rather than my circumstances. Ironically, nearly twenty years later, I would type out this passage of scripture, print it out on cardstock (dark pink...
What Will Your Action Be?
Published
Over the past few years I have been shocked and stunned to discover that many Christians seem to believe any suggestion of action on our part means you are placing confidence in yourself rather than in God. I have to tell you, this belief frightens me...
Jesus Christ Is The Source Of Our Joy
Published
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth...

The Correction of the Holy Spirit
Published
This morning, I was thinking about how the Holy Spirit corrects us in contrast to how we often try to correct one another. Actually in light of some things I've been reading here recently, I've been thinking about it a lot lately. It is hard...
Remembering My Dad On Veteran's Day
Published
I am the daughter of a disabled veteran. The near-fatal injuries he received during the Korean War did not occur in combat or even overseas. They happened here in the U.S. as the fire engine he was on was rushing to the site of a plane crash. Over...
When I Heard My Son's Cry
Published
My "child" is a 24 year old, bearded, strapping young man who towers over me. As any parent whose children have reached adulthood will attest, they are always your child. This does not mean you should treat them as children by any means,...
And I Lifted Up My Voice in Prayer

My son went to the doctor today in regards to a cough he has had trouble shaking. After determining there was no fever and his lungs seemed clear, my son was sent home with some meds to help knock out the problem with the cough. A few hours later, my...
Nothing Has The Power To Save But Your Name

When Will I Ever Learn?

Those of you hear who know me will not be the least bit surprised by the following statement. I have a tendency to be impulsive. I am afraid this tendency to NOT look before I leap has brought both myself and others grief on numerous occasions. I like...
