Being thankful
Tuesday, October 20, 2009      2 comments

So many times, though we are thankful, we hesitate to say it. I don't know why. We are reminded of being thankful every year about this time, but why do we not make it a way of life? There is much to be thankful for. So often we look at what... Read more
Choose it today

So much of what we have in this life is because of what we choose. The Bible tells us that we can choose life or death, blessing or cursing. Some people think this is a bad thing too, which I have a really hard time understanding. Maybe it's ... Read more
I have a plan

A plan for success is vital to achieving victory. They used to tell us when I sold books in college that if you fail to plan then you plan to fail. We cannot just wander through hoping to reach something we cannot even see. It's like looking ... Read more
I didn't get to go to jail. Darn!

I am disappointed that our minsitry trip to our local jail was cancelled. The guards are all sick and the inmates were acting up. I so love to do that type of ministry. I see so many of them judged and condemned by society. The whole picture... Read more

While I was at my daughter's a couple of days ago, I forgot to take pajamas. Common problem I have. My husband and son frequently forget to take their socks and underwear. Don't know why, but we are really good at it! So off to Walmart to ge... Read more

I returned home from a visit with my daughter yesterday. Our time together was supposed to be a time of celebration. It turned into a time of renewed concern for the lifestyle she has chosen. I feel as though everything we have worked so hard... Read more
To be a friend
Tuesday, October 13, 2009      2 comments

I would hope that my friends would find me faithful and caring towards them because those are characteristics I need in a friend myself. The old rule of thumb, treat others as you would want to be treated surely comes into play when I interact... Read more

Sometimes the task of being a wife and mother seems thankless. There are endless mounds of dirty clothes, few in the hamper, and dishes that reach the sky with no one to help shrink the mountain. If we are not careful we can become bitter and re... Read more

Fasting is something that many would say is not good for you, but I beg to differ. I have fasted many a time. Though not for weight loss, I did lose several pounds. It must be done correctly and carefully depending on the length of the fast a... Read more
Love and correction
Friday, October 09, 2009      4 comments

Why do we correct our children? Because we love them. If we did not care how they turned out then we would allow them free range. What is so sad to me is to see so many who have given up on their children and allow them to do what ever they w... Read more

Well I did not realise how much the tenant thing has been weighing on my mind until I went to work and my boss asked what was wrong. One of the kids called while I was at work and I was hoping he would tell me enough on my voicemail that I could... Read more
