What Goes Around . . .

What Goes Around . . .

In off times I write on my memoir. Below is an excerpt from one of the pages. The rest of the story sits at the end of this blog. We moved back to Fort Scott, Kansas from Ottawa, Kansas after WW II when I was four. Our house sat on a corner not far from downtown. Across the street to the west lived an old lady. Because there was a housing shortage at the time, her son, his wife, and…

Choices

Choices

We have a choice. We can do what is right in our own eyes, or we can do what is right in God’s eyes. Therein lies a world of difference. In our society today some folks have a skewed view of right–like the politicians calling for abortion–even abortion up to the day of birth; some even to after the baby is born. On the opposite end of that spectrum is God’s word, which stands forever (Isaiah 40:8) saying, “Thou shalt…

Allergy Solutions

Allergy Solutions

  When our son, Joshua, was small, we were puzzled by several bizarre behaviors. For no reason, he’d let loose with high-pitched screams. Once taught, he couldn’t retain the information. His handwriting was illegible. Before kindergarten the school district gave him an IQ test. That test registered him with a 53. All these factors landed him in special ed classes. Through a series of events, and a consult with a Dr. Doris Rapp, M.D., we began to suspect he was…

Boundaries

Boundaries

I never cease to be amazed at how you can read a passage in the Bible you’ve read a hundred times before and yet, this time something new pops out at you. With all the talk of borders these days I was surprised God had something to say about them. In Exodus 23:25-31 He says that if we will serve (worship) Him and make Him our Lord and God He will do the following: He will bless our bread and…

Rocks or Sand?

Rocks or Sand?

At the end of December a phrase kept coming to mind; “And great was the fall.” I knew this to be scripture so I hunted it down. It’s found in Matthew 7:21-27. Jesus is talking about a person who builds his house on the sand. This person hears the sayings of Jesus but doesn’t DO what He says. These people will hear Him say, “Depart from me you who practice lawlessness.” They build their lives and play by their own…

Praise Sets the Stage

Praise Sets the Stage

Our pastor, Jim West, challenged us to set aside the next thirty days to make a time every day to praise the Lord. He also encouraged us to journal the things God does in that time. When we praise the Lord our eyes are no longer on a problem or a puzzling situation–they are on our all-powerful God who changes things. We praise Him for who He is, and that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those…

Leftover Soup

Leftover Soup

Christmas is over, the guests have gone home, and we have a refrigerator full of odd bowls of leftovers. The weather has turned cold and rainy—a good day for soup. I pulled out those snippets and went to work. I took the bowl full of carrot and celery sticks from the relish tray, chopped them with some onions and leftover ham and threw them together in the skillet and added a little butter. While those things simmered, I added a…

A New Journal

A New Journal

This week at church we were given journals to record God’s blessings, the way He moves, and the way He uses us to be the Light of Christ to those around us. Journaling serves many purposes. It reminds us how God intervenes in our lives, how He caused circumstances to allow us to bless others, and to not forget the instances of those blessings. I’ve journaled for years, but this journal will be for the specific ways Jesus has operated…

A Word of Encouragement

A Word of Encouragement

As a writer, do you ever despair, wondering if anyone will ever read your work? You never know who or when those words you so diligently planned, typed and edited will ever be seen. This past month Neoma Foreman a writing friend of mine who lives in Walker, MO, sent me a page from a 1950 cookbook from her town’s Baptist Church. Neoma’s daughter-in-law recently bought the book in an auction and gave it to her. Although I wondered why…
