Liberty or Distraction?

I have often heard the verse, “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31). I love this verse because it inspires me to think of God as I do things, and to aspire to bring Him glory through all I do and say.…

Crunchy Leaves

One of my favorite things about autumn are the crunchy leaves on the sidewalk. Don’t you just love stepping on them and hearing the crunchy sound? I do. I love the scent in the air of the…well, yes – dying leaves! They go through this cycle so next spring they can have a new “crop”…

Happy Eyes

Don’t you just love the look on a child’s face when he or she opens a gift, and it is a wonderful surprise? The anticipation was building as the child looked at a colorful, maybe even shiny or sparkly box that was meant just for him or her. Ideas may race through the mind as…

Perspectives

I recently went on vacation to see some of my loved ones, and also had the opportunity to visit Myrtle Beach and Virginia Beach. As I stood at the shore and enjoyed squishing my toes into the sand while the waves repeatedly covered my feet and sank me down deeper and deeper, I thought about…

Spread That Light!

Do you get discouraged with the evil darkness that is all around you? Remember one very important thing: Light is more powerful than Darkness. It is in your power to overcome it, with God’s help and direction. We are in a spiritual warfare. As we come up against it with light, the darkness will be…

Sidewalk Encouragement

I was reminiscing this week about a college friend I had.  I have recently reconnected with her, and was so pleased to see she is still as joyful a soul as ever before, even amid extremely difficult personal trials.  My first memory of her is her smile, motioning me to sit next to her in…

How Should We View Money?

When it comes to money, make sure it is serving you and not the other way around. Money is a TOOL. Use it wisely, and remember that it makes no promises. It’s hard to earn, easy to spend, and makes no guarantees. But use it for your life, to help meet your goals, to allow…

Yes or No?

Genesis 2:15-17: “And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not…

Sweet Smelling

Ephesians 4:32-5:2: “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for…

Blizzard Conditions

Have you ever driven in a blizzard?  I was driving in a blizzard recently on my way to a wedding, of all things.  This drive took me down scary highway and frightening roads, including ten miles of either going up a steep hill or going down one.  The visibility was awful, and my wipers kept…
