More . . . More, and then still more . . . that seems to be what society focuses on. "It" is never enough. "It" is never good enough. "They" seem to be one-up on "us" and . . . gasp . . . we can't have that! So what do… Read full post »
You! It can happen! It’s true!
I know, the thought of something like that, to many of us, is ‘OH, yeah, but . . . ” However, I am merely stating facts here. You have it in you to have your very own Olympic GOLD metal around your neck. It&r… Read full post »
Seems to me that everywhere I look I see negativity and anger. The print media, online media, television, radio, restaurants and bars . . . we sure do seem to love to rant about all that's wrong in our neighborhoods, our towns, our nation, and the world. We look for whom… Read full post »
Here is what freedom really means!
Lord will surely comfort Zion
and will look with compassion on all her ruins;
he will make her deserts like Eden,
her wastelands like the garden of the Lord.
Joy and gladness will be found in her,
Okay, stay with me, guys! I heard a wonderful sermon on Sunday on Jesus changing us. You heard the rumor that people can’t change? Amazing what the Lord can do when we give our lives to Him! Let me also interject that if you are in the Charleston SC area and… Read full post »
We all have days when we go about life on "auto-pilot." Challenges of all sorts seem, on those days, to be too heavy and rather than resolve them, we set them aside and behave responsibly.
Our mind knows that the economy will get better, that we can exercise a bit… Read full post »
So, are you facing spiritual stormy weather? Do you have times when life is on a spiritual high but others when it crashes down on you? You are not alone. A new season is on its way. I promise . . . He promises!
Do you sometimes feel isolated? Alone? Abandoned? We all do, but some of us just don't admit it to ourselves . . . or show it in an easily defined way.
Know what? The answer we seek is often RIGHT THERE and our bold attempts to be "class clown"… Read full post »
2 Corinthians 9:10-11
10 Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. 11 You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion,… Read full post »
When Mary Magdalene realized Jesus was not “gone” but had risen and suddenly realized the one who was close to her was not working to weed the garden, I’m sure she wanted to hug Him and hold Him close. She didn’t get to do that though, did she?
He did give… Read full post »
It is true, you know. I am nothing.
I was walking out of a church supper last night with a friend. She is about my age. Not too long ago she and her husband were happy, active, independent, and living a good Christian life . . . then they both got… Read full post »
Thing is, I used to be fairly happy. I had it under control. Life was okay. Then the Lord planted a seed in me which caused some changes and a lot of last few years have included growing pains. Sometimes it was and is hard to think of anything but the… Read full post »
It is dark and dreary where I sit, but I know that brighter days are coming. Perhaps the day is lack luster where you are as well? Here are some smiles to lift your spirits.

So, you have been given a message to share? You have writing skills? You are a leader in your chosen profession? You love people and love Jesus and desire to shine His reflected light?
This is great, but you need to reach them! They need to find you! How can your… Read full post »
Spring is in the air and so is the pollen. Achoo. Excuse me. I am allergic to pollen but as a rule suffer as silently as I can. Achoo. Ooops. Clearly, this first week of hearing the pollen count spoken of on the morning and evening news has upset things in my… Read full post »
Okay, this post is about another sort of leaping and not simply another piece about how many days appear on the calendar this month. The word leap appears many times in the Bible and I was curious to view some of the verses . . . this one caught my eye… Read full post »
The threat of a storm lasted long, but now that the storm is over it seems as though it was quite brief. How often do we find this to be true? After it has gone, the beauty in its wake seems brighter than ever before . . .

Sometimes just wandering by the front window at the right time of day can be an amazing experience.
Ordinary can be extraordinary!
Simple can be simply incredible!
See what you've been missing?
For the last several days, as I awakened in the morning it was not to immediately enjoy the singing of birds outside my window which typically will always fill me with the Love of my Father God for I know how much He loves every feather on each one of them… Read full post »
Seriously, the human heart doesn’t look like a valentine and while I could look up why the day February 14th became linked to a specific “shape” we call a heart, I’m not going to write about that. As I look at the shape what I see is a rounded shape which is… Read full post »

One Flickering Flame
by Martha L Shaw
Are you afraid?
Do you dare try . . .
You cannot overcome it,
or maybe . . .

but eyes squint to see it
and the flame flickers.… Read full post »
