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...
Is It A Disability Or A Challenge?
Published
A few years ago I read a book called Living, Laughing and Loving Life by Dan Miller Dan was struck by polio at the age of 18, right before the vaccine reached the area of Washington where he lived. One of the comments he made in the book about one of...
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
Published
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
Published
This morning, I found myself singing Your Name by Phillips, Craig and Dean. As morning comes and evening fades You inspire songs of praise That rise from earth to touch your heart And glorify your name Chorus Your name is a strong and mighty tower...
When Will I Ever Learn?
Published
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...
Remembering Who I Am In Christ
Published
One of the reasons we often find ourselves struggling along the way is because we forget or do not believe who we are in Christ. So, exactly who are we in Christ? Jesus came to redeem us so that we might receive full rights as God's children....
He Gives Me Joy That's Unspeakable!
Published
Earlier today a friend reminded me that God is never racing about trying to provide our needs. He does not have to wonder if He is able to cover us. We don't catch God by surprise... ever. As I contemplated that, my heart was filled with that...
Reflecting His Light In The Darkness
Published
Sunset comes early this time of year. On our way back from our day of searching for bald eagles, we turned west and were greeted by a beautiful sunset as well as an amazing sight. As I looked at the darkening clouds, I let out a cry of surprise....
The Father Who Cares For Us
Published
This weekend, my husband and I went to the National Eagle Center to see if we could spot some of the bald eagles which are currently migrating to the area. Last year there were 100 nesting pairs counted. A number of years ago there was only one pair...
The Battle of the Mind
Published
The serpent was clever, more clever than any wild animal God had made. He spoke to the Woman: "Do I understand that God told you not to eat from any tree in the garden?" The Woman said to the serpent, "Not at all. We can eat from the...
The God Who Walks With Us Through The Fire
Published
Last evening my husband and I were chatting with a couple we have known for over twenty years. The wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2008, just as I was finishing up my treatment. I remember we sat in their living room about a year ago,...
Carrying On The Unfinished Work
Published
My second grade class eyed the wall over the drinking fountain somewhat dubiously as they gazed at the tiles which were being attached above it. They were going to do what? They shook their heads in disbelief as I led them back to the classroom. They...
Our Lives Are In His Hands
Published
In 1954 at the age of 19, my father was pronounced dead while lying on the tarmac at naval base in North Carolina. While racing to a fire, a driver error on the back of the fire engine sent three men flying off the truck. Two men hit the pavement and...
But She's Not Coming Back...
Published
The news caught all of us by surprise yesterday morning. Our regularly scheduled staff meeting had an unexpected visitor from the district offices. Our principal, who was on a medical leave and scheduled to return in two weeks was not coming back. We...
Don't Forget To Have Regular Examinations
Published
This is the time of year during which I get pretty reflective. You see, in October of 2007, I started to have these strange spells of feeling faint and dizzy. They would come upon me for a few moments and then be gone. I went to see a doctor and was...
God Wants To Be With...Us
Published
Last night I called a friend. A friend who is very dear to me. I hadn't heard from her lately nor seen her around. I missed her, so I called her. I just wanted to hear her voice. I dialed her number and found myself holding my breath as the phone...
Standing Before God With Open Hands
Published
Once there was a rich man with a fine farm. One year, the harvest was so great that he didn't have enough room in his barn for all of his crops. Hm... he contemplated what he should do. Ah ha! He had a brilliant idea! He would tear down his old...
