Fear Not… But

We’ve been scared before. I remember the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1961. I was a little girl, and didn’t really know much about what was happening, but I had heard enough and had watched enough war movies to be terrified when I heard a plane flying overhead. Like the adults around me, I was relieved … More Fear Not… But

Broken, Not Forsaken

Recently, I watched a Facebook video where John Tesh shared his testimony about talking to his disease about God. It reminded me of one of my own testimonies, and I share it here to encourage you. It is only one example of how God brings healing to those who hope in Him, whether we are … More Broken, Not Forsaken

Not Again!

Let me start by saying I got a new hairdo yesterday. A summer-friendly, easy-to-wear pixie was what I asked for. And I guess that’s just what I got, so it’s not fair to bad-mouth the stylist. But the result was not quite what I expected. Enough to say, I texted my husband before I headed … More Not Again!

I haven’t done mine yet, mostly because my lips have not calmed down yet from an overabundance … More To Your Health

But, always, there are the inevitable plans to do things I should have done last year but didn’t, and the inevitable plans to stop doing things that I’ve … More The Dance

I Love Ya, Tomorrow!

“The sun will come out, tomorrow! Betcha bottom dollar that tomorrow, there’ll be sun!” Most of us remember Little Orphan Annie’s delightful performance of this song in the titular musical. Even though this little actress, Aileen Quinn, knew the outcome of the whole story, she was certainly “in the moment” when she sang this proclamation. … More I Love Ya, Tomorrow!

Thanks in the Morning

Have you ever been told you should thank God for everything that comes into your life, no matter what? Have you ever found it almost impossible to do so? With conviction, at any rate? Was it almost as if you were lying to God? There’s a good reason for that: God never said we should thank him … More Thanks in the Morning
