Enduring Works

When you look back on the years past, what is the same? It amazes me when I consider all of the changes that have occurred over the years. Things are continuously changing in our lives. This happened long before COVID-19 came on the scene.  I remember in high school, I was editor of the school … Continue reading Enduring Works

Isn’t It Enough

Over the past few months, I spent some time doing some upgrades in the kitchen. I usually am not big into changing the decor or even spending money; however, there were some items on my Amazon wish list, and a whole lot of quarantine time to go shopping.

Talk about trust … Continue reading Now We Are Ready

Let There Be No Strife

I love what happens in Genesis 13:8. Abram recognizes that the conflict or strife between Lot and himself could not continue. When we get wrapped up in conflict, it may keep us from keeping our eyes fixed on God and His call on our life. It also may cause division. God’s Word speaks a lot … Continue reading Let There Be No Strife
