Seeds of Prayer Produce a harvest of blessings

When we see the daffodils and tulips blooming during springtime, we often think of preparing our gardens. I grew up on a farm in the Midwest, and we always had a garden to grow our potatoes and vegetables. As I was thinking about sowing seeds in the garden, I was reminded of the fruit of the Spirit in (Galatians 5:22, 23 TLB) “But when the Holy Spirit…

My Christmas Memory - What it means to me now.

 As I was looking at the forlorn misshapen tree standing in the snow on the cover of a book, I was reading last week, I was reminded of the Christmas tree we had at my house when I was a child.  

When I was six years old, my parents had very little money to spend at Christmas. In order for my parents to…

Are you Sowing Seeds of Prayer?

During this autumn season, I am reminded of my childhood, growing up on a wheat farm in Oklahoma. In the summer after the wheat harvest, my father would prepare the soil for the next year’s crop, and in the autumn, he would sow the wheat seed. We would wait for the rains to water the seed, fertilizer, and wait for it to come up and watch it grow throughout the winter months. We would see the wheat heads form and ripen to a golden color for the harvest in early June in the spring.…

Do your plans always match God's plans?

In John chapter 11, we read about Lazarus's death, where Mary and Martha sent word to their dear beloved friend Jesus to let him know their brother to Lazarus had become very ill. They expected Jesus to come immediately to heal their brother, but he did not come. Disappointed, they wondered why Jesus didn’t come right away.

Jesus had a different plan; he told the disciples, "This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God's glory so that God's Son may be glorified through…

Has your computer been hacked?

It seems like our social media, financial, and email accounts get hacked now and then. When that happens, we change our passwords to protect our privacy since we don’t want intruders to access our accounts. Passwords protect our accounts.

Lessons from Queen Esther

In Esther, chapter four we read that when Haman made a decree to kill all the Jews of Susa because Mordecai would not bow down to him.

A Portrait of a Grandparent

 There was a time when the word “grandparent” evoked images of rocking chairs, gray hair, wrinkles, and big meals. However, things have changed. Recent data indicates about one-third of all adults are grandparents, and their average age is 64, and the average age for becoming a grandparent is around 47. My husband and I became grandparents at 43.

Now,…
