Marriage Certificates

Marriage Certificates

According to an article online from Tenth Amendment Center (http://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2018/01/oklahoma-bill-would-eliminate-marriage-licenses-nullify-federal-control-in-practice-2/) Oklahoma will again consider dropping marriage licenses and instead issue certificates of marriage after the fact. This is an attempt to make a way out for the county clerks who might be opposed to issuing a license to same sex couples. The proposed bill also leaves out any mention of marriage being between one man and one woman. This opens the door for someone to marry their daughter–or even their…

Hearing Voices

Hearing Voices

We recently left a cruise ship. It’s a long, but very organized process. Each room is assigned to a group number when the passengers arrive. When the ship has docked the final time, each group is to gather in the theatre area until your number is called. You may wait an hour or two, depending on how the disembarking is flowing. As I sat there I watched people. A certain TV station blared on the large screens. Most watched mindlessly,…

Predicting Winter Weather

Predicting Winter Weather

  Ever wonder what the weather will be this winter? Check the inside of a persimmon seed, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac. WINTER WEATHER FOLKLORE Pixabay   HOW TO PREDICT WEATHER WITH A PERSIMMON SEED Cut open a persimmon seed. (The fruit should be locally-grown to reflect your weather. A ripe seed works best.) Image from www.hoosierweather.com Look at the shape of the kernel inside. If the kernel is spoon-shaped, lots of heavy, wet snow will fall. Spoon = shovel! If it is fork-shaped, you can expect…

God’s Little Surprises

God’s Little Surprises

Until a couple of weeks ago, I had as my summer goal, to find a reader to read my God’s Little Miracle Book ( I, II, & III). I hadn’t done anything toward attaining that goal. It was like I was in a holding pattern. On a Friday night I was up half the night unable to go to sleep. When this happens, I often get up to write my prayers. This night I felt the Lord telling me to lay down…

Ice Cream in a Bag

Ice Cream in a Bag

Our family always likes ice cream, but few want to crank the gallon and a half until it’s frozen. Some want strawberry, others desire blueberry. The purists want plain vanilla. With this recipe, each person can make their own flavor. and it only takes about five minutes. I must warn you–it’s habit forming! This and other recipes are found in my book Family Favorites from the Heartland, available on Amazon at the link below. Ingredients: ½ cup milk (for richer version…

Unforgiveness

Unforgiveness

In Matthew chapter 18:21-35, Jesus speaks of the necessity of forgiveness. In essence, He says if we don’t forgive those who have wronged us, we will be handed over to the torturers (verse 34) in the New American Standard Version. In the King James Version, they used the word jailers instead of torturers. In the Greek according to BlueLetterBible.org that word means: “one who elicits the truth by the use of the rack, an inquisitor, torturer also used of a jailer doubtless…

Today’s Bitterness

Today’s Bitterness

The Spirit of Marah (Bitterness) On the third day when the Israelites journeyed back to Israel after their Exodus from Egypt, they found themselves at Marah, thirsty and out of water. There was a well there, but it was bitter. The Biblical account tells us in Exodus 15:23 (NASV): “When they came to Marah, they could not drink the waters of Marah, for they were bitter; therefore it was named Marah.” So we learn that Marah means bitter in Hebrew….

Failing to Stand with Israel

Failing to Stand with Israel

I wonder what consequences our nation will suffer for failing to stand with Israel in the U.N. last week. God doesn’t take kindly to those trying to divide the land He has given to Israel. In Joel 3:2 He promises to bring all nations to the valley of Jehoshaphat (which is the Kidron Valley outside of Jerusalem) because they have divided the land. In Zechariah 14:2 He promises to gather all nations against Jerusalem. In the end-time discourse in Luke 21…
