Great is thy Faithfulness

This morning I woke up to another cold, icy, snowy day.  Though the snow holds a crisp, clean beauty, the difficulties caused by the subzero temperature start to grate on a person after so many days. The novelty wears off and only the work remains.  As I was grudgingly thinking about all the daily chores that needed to be done I happened to look out the window and saw a breathtaking sight.  The sun had come up and was shining with smiling rays of light through my dining room window.  I quickly ran with my camera to our firewood door and, ignoring the biting cold, ran onto the porch where I snapped picture after picture of this beautiful reminder of God's faithfulness.

Heart Search

Whenever someone is purchasing a home, they have a certain period of time to have an inspector search the house for any obvious or hidden defects that could cause problems after the sale. This is not necessary but always highly advised.  The other day I sat in on a home inspection.  I watched while trained experts combed the house from top to bottom checking the roof, the brick, the wiring and numerous other things that the untrained eye might miss.  They took approximately 500 pictures of every nook and cranny seeking to expose anything that might be a danger. I was impressed with the thoroughness of their investigation and felt sure that the buyer was being well served.

God’s Love Song

I love to hear John-Keith sing.  Often when I am working at the kitchen counter, I will hear him whistling or singing a tune in the other room.  It is such a happy sound to me and I enjoy it very much. Did you know that God sings over you?

Death Doesn’t Win

Last April Great Grandma Thomson went home to be with the Lord.  After a long, fruitful life she cast aside her 99 year old body to receive a new and perfect body. Having spent my whole life in her presence and influenced by her godly ways, I was privileged to be by her side when her soul left this world and entered the presence of the Lord.  One of the thoughts that went through my mind when her hand went limp and I knew she was gone was, "DEATH, YOU DO NOT WIN!"  Why would I think that at the moment of her departing? It was because I had memorized today's verse and God brought it to my mind in my sadness.

How strong is your faith?

You may be wondering why I chose this verse.  It seems like a normal conversation that we might have with friends or acquaintances on a regular basis, but there is something much more here. Listen to the story behind it.

How To Connect With God

Loose Lips Sink Ships – Podcast

A few years ago we were watching Abigail’s middle school perform in the musical, Kilroy was Here, a comedy set in the WW2 era. One of the lines in the song, “Spies,” says, “We mustn’t lose our grip, here’s a tip, Loose lips sink ships.” Sssssshhhhh!” Many thousands of years before the 1940’s God’s word…
