What A Shower!

Sunday, March 26, 2023

Recently, I fixed the shower by attaching a new shower head to the flexible hose that comes from the taps. This was no big deal as I am a practical-minded person. More recently, however, I noticed that the screw-fit connector to the pipe … Read more

The Garden

Theological Bankruptcy

God's Kindness And Sternness

Thursday, August 24, 2017

I often listen to a Christian radio station located in upstate New York, USA. Their tagline is "God's Presence is with you giving you eternal life". Those words are like a hug from God just for me. I like to think that God's Presence will … Read more

Exult In God's Kindness

Saturday, April 29, 2017

Oh, my apple trees! Their delicate pink-and-white, curled-up, wee buds are opening in the sunshine. These new, little trees thrill me! At a horticulture workshop a few years ago, I was shown how to graft eating-apple stem pieces onto … Read more

Caught By The Seat Of My Pants

Sunday, February 19, 2017

God's Appointment

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

Bibs To Aprons

Saturday, March 3, 2012

Gran never took her apron off unless she entertained company in the front room. Her aprons served as splash collectors, pot holders, egg carriers, and wash cloths for a fevered child's brow. I never saw her use an apron to … Read more

My Aunt Trudy was a professional tracer. No, she didn't try to find people who were lost or get information for bounty hunters; she traced blueprints and diagrams for a shipping engineering firm. She must have had a steady hand … Read more


Thursday, February 10, 2011

One summer, I decided that I would read through the book of Romans. I'm a detailed, orderly, organized person, so I thought that if I could read two chapters a day, that would take eight days to complete. That would … Read more

Bullies From The Past

God's Graciousness In Reverse

Thursday, January 12, 2006

A family reunion in Georgia this past July afforded us the opportunity to explore some of the southern United States. We figured since we were going that far, at that expense, we might as well make the most of it, … Read more

Persistent Caller

Friday, August 26, 2005

Plinkings And Plunkings

Sunday, July 18, 1999

Buying Time

Sunday, May 17, 1998
