A “Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda” Day

Have you ever had a “woulda, coulda, shoulda”day? This is a day in which you second guess yourself and the way you did things because the results were not what you had hoped for. If I would have done this… I should have done that… I could have done that, and wish I had… Things would be different if I would have… I had one of those days this past Friday as I had the

Are You Ready?

I wonder how many people we have passed by this week who don’t know the Lord. Perhaps they were in the grocery store, in the neighborhood, at the gas station, at the mall or movie theater. To be honest, how often do we even think about it? I have to confess, I don’t think about it as much as I should.   But why don’t we think about it more? Why is it not uppermost

Treasuring God’s Word at 94

Yesterday morning I visited a dear lady from my church who was admitted to the hospital recently. She is 94 years old and just in the past year had to move into an assisted living.

Life’s Ups and Downs

Life's Ups and Downs

  Life is full of ups and downs. There are seasons when we enjoy the highest of highs; and then there are those times when we feel the lowest of lows. I experienced both this past Tuesday night within a few hours of each other. Before turning in for the night, I checked emails one last time, and to my elation, there was an email in my inbox that I had been waiting for. I
