Its Christmas Time

It’s Christmas time! From holiday shopping on Black Friday to the unveiling of gifts on Christmas Day, there is a fresh new build up of anticipation promising this year will be special.

Legend of the Dogwood

There is a legend, that at the time of the Crucifixion the dogwood had been the size of the oak and other forest trees.  So firm and strong was the tree that it was chosen as the timber of the cross.  To be used thus for such a cruel purpose greatly distressed the tree, and […]

Noah’s Ark

Another one of those things floating around the email chain, so I have no idea who the author is, but I enjoy it. Hope you will too. Noah’s Ark : Everything I need to know, I learned from Noah’s Ark. ONE: Don’t miss the boat. TWO: Remember that we are all in the same boat! […]

Overcoming the Storms

Jeremiah 33:14-16 14 The days are surely coming, says the Lord, when I will fulfill the promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah. 15 In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David; and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the […]

Expiration Date

Ecclesiastes 9:12 Moreover,no man knows when his hour will come: As fish are caught in a cruel net, or birds are taken in a snare, so men are trapped by evil times that fall unexpectedly upon them. This past week a sister in Christ passed from us to join those that have gone before  her.  […]
