Become More Christ-like

We are told as Christians that we should strive to become more Christ-like.  This means that we should seek to possess and display in our lives the characteristics or attitudes of Christ.  Some of His attributes we cannot possess such as omnipotence [all powerful], omniscience [all knowing], omnipresence [everywhere at [...]

A Powerful Book

I am amazed when I encounter people who think that something is true just because they believe it is (without any real basis) as if their believing it to be true makes it so!  In reality, it doesn’t matter what you or I or any other person thinks.  What matters is what [...]

Lift Up Our Eyes Unto The Hills

The area in which we live affords us opportunities to “lift up our eyes unto the hills.”  Psalm 121 is one of the “Pilgrim Psalms” or “Songs of degrees” that was sung by those journeying to the Temple for annual festivals.  This song of declares that our help comes from [...]

I love to see the new life that spring brings to the earth!

Things don’t always go as we would like!  Hasn’t that been the case recently with so many snowstorms interrupting a multitude of schedules and well-laid plans?! And weather is such a small inconvenience in comparison to the “interruption” of cancer, sickness, death, loss of a job, family problems, etc.  In all [...]

“Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.”  Eph. 6:2-3.  What a special time of year it is when mothers and fathers are honored, and what blessings are in store for [...]

The brevity and uncertainty of life

2001 will be a year we will never forget.  My husband’s 42 year old sister died suddenly in her sleep on March 20, and we were reminded of the brevity and uncertainty of life.  On September 11, the world watched in horror as we were again forced to face the [...]
