My Beloved

“Whither is thy beloved gone?” Song of Solomon 6:1 There is occasion in every marriage for dullness to set in and a lack of appreciation to waft through the hearts of husbands and wives. Managing the responsibilities of married life becomes a business. Juggling jobs, kids, bills, and discipline leaves no room for intimate feelings…

The Greatest of These…To the Least of These

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. I Corinthians 13:1 I’m a kindergarten teacher, so I speak a lot of words every day. And in my years in the classroom, I have discovered it is entirely possible…

Beware of Idols

Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you….

Don’t Waste the Journey

My husband serves God and country as a chaplain in the United States Army. He’s been in this ministry for almost five years – eighteen months in the reserves and about three years on active duty – and unless God shows us otherwise, we believe this will be His ministry for us in the foreseeable…

Terms and Philosophies

Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry.

Discerning Light

These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. Therefore many of…

What Can You Handle?

Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews: And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures, Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the…

Update During Quarantine

Good grief! All this coronavirus stuff makes me crazy! The laundry has doubled, the cooking has doubled, the cleaning has doubled. I had beautiful aspirations of finally becoming the organized woman I have always wanted to be during this thing. It has not happened. God truly has a sense of humor: I am not a…

“Lord, Help My Unbelief”

And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed. And the keeper of the prison awaking out of…

What is in Your Hands

 “Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall…
