Satan became a snake and hung around a tree.Got Eve to eat the forbidden fruit and claimed victory.He thought he had wontill Jesus, God’s Son,hung on wood from a treegaining the ultimate victoryover him, for you and me.   My books are available on Amazon.com here

So What’s Wrong with Crystals?

So What’s Wrong with Crystals?

Every few years the fad of crystals comes around again. I spoke to someone recently who wanted to know more about their healing qualities.  I’ll not debate the pros and cons of crystals. The problem lies with the place given them in our hearts. Jesus Christ is our healer. He was whipped with a cat-o-nine tails that we can be healed. (By His stripes we have been healed-1 Peter 2:24.)  In Isaiah 42:8 God says, “I will not give My…

Spring Garden

Spring Garden

My garden looks rather small and insignificant at this point, but given enough light and water, perhaps we’ll have some produce from it this summer–if the squirrels and rabbits don’t get it first.  Spring is also when my large plants escape the basement under grow lights where they’ve been for the past six months. They’d stay there the entire year if it weren’t for the excellent help from son, Josh, who dutifully loads each one on a dolly and lugs…

Four Years

Four Years

Four years ago this week we buried my husband. In a way it seems like a hundred years since we embraced; in other ways it seems he only left yesterday.  His death would be a sad thing except we know we’ll see him again–on the other side where there are no tears, no sighs and no sad good-bys. This fact isn’t because he was a good man. It is because Jesus conquered death by His raising from the grave. Because…

May he fulfill the purposes for which he camegiving glory to Jesus’ name.  

What if?

What if?

What if there had been no Joseph of Arimathea? He’s the guy who offered his new tomb in which to place Jesus’ body after the crucifixion.  Because Jesus was executed as a criminal, His body belonged to the Roman government. It would have been thrown on the trash heap outside the city. Had He risen from the dead, no one could have proved it. Joseph of Arimathea was no ordinary citizen. He was a member of the Sanhedrin, one of…

A Cautionary Tale

A Cautionary Tale

As I walked down the hospital hall a couple of weeks ago I noticed a sign that read, “7 out of 10 colon cancer patients have no symptoms.” I could agree with that whole-heartedly, because I had no symptoms that one would associate with colon cancer. Since January of 2022 I’d felt short of breath and seemed tired, but who would associate that with colon cancer? I made an appointment with my general practitioner who did the usual blood tests…

Update from Ukraine

Update from Ukraine

On the Facebook page Pray for Ukraine my friend posted this: Please read this post and pray for Ukraine!       Maia Mikhaluk Yettste104Srday p1o8n0gat 20:66e59 PM  ·  11pm. The night is descending on Ukraine. The evening was quiet. We had a family dinner without interruption of air raid sirens. We hope the night ahead is quiet but we wonder if this is quietness before the storm. In my morning post I quoted an episode from Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings”, where Sam…
