When God whispers

My blog posts this month are about listening to God.  He speaks to servants who listen.  But sometimes God whispers.  Why is that? GOD’S WHISPER IS PERSONAL  When did you last whisper to someone?  Chances are, it was someone you love. We don’t whisper in the ears of strangers. God whispers to those he loves […]

Look backward to move ahead

I worked at a toy store during my first years of college.  One day, I watched a little boy stray from his dad. Dad was feeding baby sister, and big brother was asked to wait on the bench with him. He promised his son they would go into the toy store as soon as sister […]

Our chance to speak requires a choice

God created the concept of marriage for a reason.  During the important times, the joyful times, and the difficult times, marriage is the best earthly example of the way […]

Temper TV with Truth

I’ve decided the best way to temporarily treat my temper is to temper the television and totally take in truth instead. I need to take time for my temperament. “Fake TV” has political implications, but, let’s face it: TV has more fake than fact these days.  Let’s take the Monday morning news as Example A.  […]

The Best Way to End Arguments

The older I get, the more valuable time seems. And I don’t want to spend a lot of time debating people who aren’t looking for an answer as much as an argument. My husband, Jim, was preaching from Luke 5 when the idea for this blog post was born. In that passage, Peter, the apostle, […]
