Because Of Bethlehem

Christmas Grace

Small Town Hero

Tuesday, December 1, 2020

Predictive Text

Saturday, December 12, 2015

I learned to text, only to discover that the cell phone fancied itself a prophet. This is called predictive texting. Whenever I punched in a letter, it finished the word for me. Thus, I sent messages full of words like "spzxq". The last … Read more

Little Among Thousands

Friday, December 19, 2014

The Advent Wreath

Sunday, December 1, 2013

Gentle Shepherd

One of the gentlest people whom I have ever met was a shepherd. His family had been shepherds for generations, so it was natural for him to follow in their footsteps. He was a clever man who probably could have … Read more

Were You Alive?

Saturday, December 8, 2001

Recently, my children, aged 4 and 6, have begun to understand the concept of time. Bethany now realizes that time passes in an orderly fashion of minutes, hours, and days. We seldom use the common practice of 'three more sleeps,' … Read more
