The Corona Virus

The Corona Virus Lives have drastically changed since the advent of the corona virus. You only have to go to Walmart, Costco, or Sam’s Club to buy toilet paper, bottled water, cleaning supplies, etc. to witness the ramifications for our society. “Don’t leave your house and if you do, don’t touch surfaces outside your home.” […]

What Does it Mean When I Say I’m A Christian?

Being a Christian means I carry the name of my Savior Jesus Christ whose birth we celebrate in December. He saved me, but what did He save me from? An eternity without Him. Being a Christian doesn’t mean following a set of rules or rituals. It doesn’t require us to do a certain number of […]

Prayers for Salvation For Others

I like to take time in the morning to read the Word and spend time with the Lord. Then I pray for friends and family. Sometimes, I’m not sure if they are following the Lord, so I reinforce my prayer with 1 Timothy 2:4. “The Lord wants all people to be saved and to come […]

What Do You Treasure?

  What happens when we lose something so valuable, we grieve over it. Something material which can never be replaced? I pray we may say with Job , “Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him.” My husband and I lived in Germany for three years while he served in the army. I […]

Where Will You Spend Eternity

What’s Next After This? Have you ever asked someone this question: if you die tonight, where will you spend eternity? Generally, I get one of two answers. I’m a good person. I’ll go to Heaven. Or I hope I’ll go to Heaven. These two answers frustrate me because neither reflect God’s word. Let’s take a […]

What Were You Thinking?

What Were You Thinking? James 4:7 says “Submit yourselves therefore to God.” Our choices, our words, our activities, our relationships. (I’m still working on all of this.) But for me thoughts are the hardest to surrender to the Lord. The Bible offers help. Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is […]

Happy Valentine’s Day

God’s Love Is the Best Valentine You Can Receive “God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16.” If you’ve been a Christian for a while, you’ve heard this verse. But have you really pondered what it means? In […]

Reflecting God’s Glory

Reflecting God’s Glory Once when we were traveling in our RV, the window out the back faced east, and I saw a brilliant sunrise every morning. But one day I happened to look out the other side toward the west just at the right time. A glorious gold light reflected from the windows of the […]

A Phone Call to God

A Phone Call to God Ring. Ring. “Hello. You’ve reached Jeremiah 33:3 and will be connected immediately with no waiting time to speak to God.” “Yes.” I lowered my fist in a victory signal. “Hello, God.” “Good morning, my daughter. I love you, today.” “I love you, too, Lord. I was reading Ephesians 6:14 today […]

Merry Christmas 2019

Merry Christmas, 2019 There are nine traits specifically mentioned in the book of Galatians that Paul lists as virtues. He calls them The Fruit of the Spirit. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. But did any of the characters in the Bible’s Christmas story display these qualities in their lives? Yes! […]

Thanking God

Thanking God I’m grateful this year for all my blessings. There are many. God’s direction in my life, good health, the opportunity to write stories that glorify Him, a changed life which has no resemblance to the life I led when I was twenty, peace that dwells in my heart, wonderful family members. But as […]
