What Now?

I don't know about you but there seems to be a letdown after a big holiday.  After all the activities of the last week, you may be asking, "what now?".  Imagine what the followers of Jesus felt.  From Palm Sunday, followed by Passover and ending on Easter Sunday, it was a busy week!   It must have been a roller coaster of emotions for those who lived it. We, of course, have the advantage of knowing how it all turned out. But those who followed Jesus either forgot what He had told them or never really believed it.  Some of His...

The Lord Blesses the Work of Your Hands

The Lord Blesses the Work of Your Hands

The Lord will command the blessing upon you in your storehouses and in all that you undertake, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God gives you.  Deuteronomy 28:8   As I was meditating on this verse, the Lord said notice the word and in this verse. And is a conjunction that means together with, as well as, in addition to, also.  This verse does not say your storehouses will be blessed because of all you undertake. Throughout scriptures, God makes it very clear He is Jehovah Jira, the one who supplies. God can bless our storehouses independently of our work, and He...

Break out of Hibernation and Beat the Winter Blues

Between Covid lockdowns and the winter weather we've been having, many of us have been indoors longer than  normal. With that hibernation the winter blues can set in. Winter blues have been having a definite effect at our house.   I just want to curl up beside the fireplace with a good book and cup of coffee and stay there until spring. And so that's what I do. Then guilt sets in. I should be doing something not just wasting all this time.  And that make the blues bluer. Scientists say that unless you have SAD (seasonal affect disorder) the weather...

Breaking the Habit of Self-Doubt

I bravely hit the go-live button as I post my latest blog. Then it happens, self-doubt explodes in my mind.  Is what I've written any good?  Will somebody read it? What will my children or parents think of it? What will God think of it? What if my thinking is wrong and I'm giving inaccurate information or incorrect directions out.  Should I pause it and rewrite it?  Should I delete it?  I've researched the subject and prayed about how to present it.  I've written, edited, rewritten, and edited it again.  But the self-doubt remains.  Maybe I shouldn't be posting my...

Stay-at-Home Advantage: A Clearer View

Now that the weather has warmed up, we were able to take the plastic off of our screened-in porch.  Wow, the world outside looks so much clearer now. It is interesting how much a seemingly clear piece of plastic can cloud the view.  With the cold, rain, and dirt, that once clear piece of plastic had become very cloudy. It happened gradually over the winter, a little cloudier every day, so I barely noticed.  But when Steve ripped down that plastic, all of a sudden, we could see clearly again! The grass is greener, the flowers are brighter, even the...
