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…

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…

Loving Correction

I was reading Proverbs 3:13-18 recently about the benefits and value of having wisdom.   Read this, and think about what those benefits are: Proverbs 3:13-18: 13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. 14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof…

A Project in Process

I have ordered some new furniture lately. It’s not like it used to be, where you order furniture and it comes to your door…intact! Now they bring it in heavy boxes, and you have to assemble it yourself! My kitchen table and chairs I had to assemble by hand. I ordered an “entertainment credenza” and…

New Year’s Excuses

One thing is guaranteed when you make new year’s resolutions: attached to those will be new year’s excuses.  Let’s be honest with ourselves!  It doesn’t mean you have to be defeated by the excuses; you can overcome them and have the victory in reaching your goals.  But I am certain that temptations to quit will…
