What can I say about my trip to Israel and Jordan? There are so many memories. I will be telling and writing about this for some time. One of the many things that impressed me was Jerusalem. When entering the tunnel to go to Jerusalem our tour guide played the moving song, “Jerusalem, Jerusalem.”Continue reading A Trip of a Lifetime
Along with leading a Bible Study this fall, I have the incredible privilege of traveling to Israel with my sisters. When I return I’ll post some of the sights of modern-day Israel and antiquity of days gone by.Continue reading Israel, Here We Come! ✈
Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely, and long for heaven and home,
When Jesus is my portion, My constant friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.
WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS,
all our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
ev’rything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
all because we do not carry
ev’rything to God in prayer!
Last week the Bible study I led broke for the summer. There were 8 women who attended. This is a nice number for a Bible study. We studied Philippians, Titus and the Gospel of Matthew inductively.¹Continue reading It’s Been a Sacrifice

Something beautiful has happened in my life. On this blog I have written about my memory and the concern that this would have a negative effect on leading a Bible study. After praying gobs about it I concluded God would use me in spite of it. Nothing is too difficult for God.
Today is my Dad’s birthday. He would have been 95. The song below reminds me of him. It was sung at his funeral thirteen years ago. The picture above also reminds me of dad, accept he was a fly fisherman. Dad was most happy fishing. He brought home some awesome trout. Happy Birthday Dad! 🎂Continue reading Happy Birthday Dad!
I’m not one to normally take to my bed. But when a couple trying circumstances hit at once that’s just what I did. First were feelings of failure then the loss of power, finally helplessness. I shut the bedroom door and went to bed. I was a wreck.Continue reading Do Not Disturb!
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit; the Holy Catholic* Church; the communion of the saints; the forgiveness of sin; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.Continue reading I Believe
This is my Father's world, And to my list'ning ears, All nature sings, and round me rings The music of the spheres. This is my Father's world, I rest me in the thought Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas- His hand the wonders wrought. This is my Father's world, The birds their carols raise; The morning light, the lily white Declares their Maker's praise. This is my Father's world. He shines in all that's fair; In the rustling grass I hear Him pass, He speaks to me ev'rywhere. This is my Father's world, O let me ne'er forget That though the wrong seems oft so strong God is the Ruler yet. This is my Father's world, The battle is not done; Jesus who died shall be satisfied, And earth and heaven be one.Continue reading This is My Father’s World
A book¹ I once read quoted this verse, “Those who believe in the Son of God have a testimony of God in them.”² Our testimonies or stories are unique. God wants us to be intentional about sharing them. Mine is about how a church lady became a Christian. This may sound a bit backwards. At the same time, you may relate.Continue reading A Church Lady Becomes a Christian
Are people supposed to be perfect? I’ve been asking myself this question while getting ready for visitors. As soon as we knew they were coming we went into high gear preparing, cleaning and fixing up.Continue reading Perfect in Everyway
Low in the grave He lay – Jesus my Savior!

When the weather got warm the kids in my neighborhood used to play Ante Over. We would say “Annie-Annie Over” then throw a ball over the house. We used different balls but found a baseball worked the best because throwing over the house was quite a ways over.Continue reading A Broken Window
God So Loved the World.
God so loved the world,
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoso believeth, believeth in Him
should not perish, should not perish
but have everlasting life.
I am a Christian so whenever a Democrat becomes President I am concerned. It feels like the ground is shifting under my feet. I wonder what it will mean for Christians. I speculate whether Christians will be persecuted with the inevitable changes.Continue reading Joe Biden – part 2
Before continuing on I would like to share what I learned from my readers. Last week’s post was whether America, in the true sense of the word, was ever a Christian nation. I concluded it was not.Continue reading American Heritage | What is it?
As a Christian, how can I say President Joe Biden is God’s man for our times? Especially after Biden just lifted the transgender military ban. Am I deluded? Would you believe God showed me this while I was reading the Bible and praying?Continue reading Joe Biden | God’s Man for Our Times
