True Riches

True Riches

My husband’s channel surfing finally landed on the History channel recently. The program listed the world’s resources; gold, oil, and water, among other things. At the end of each segment, they stated the dollar amount of each resource in today’s market. At the end of the hour, they estimated the world’s total riches in so many quadrillion dollars. I don’t know about you, but I can’t get my head around that much money. All I can understand is that’s one…

If, Then & Else

If, Then & Else

I never cease to be amazed at how the Bible is woven into every part of our every-day lives, many times unnoticed. I spoke with a writer friend the other day and showed her last week’s blog about the “if” and “then” in the II Chronicles 7:14 scripture. (“If the people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their…

Are You In or Out?

Are You In or Out?

My niece called the other day with this question. “Aunt Sally, what is our heritage?” “Yours is mostly English. Why?” “Well, maybe that’s not what I want to know. I mean what’s my ethnicity?” “White bread, honey. White bread. Our ethnicity doesn’t really make a difference. We’re all descended from Adam and Eve, ultimately.” As I thought about it later, what I said to her was true. We’re all a part of God’s creation. But not all of us are…

Talk-show Host Foundation

Bill stated that “some of the Bible is allegory, like Jonah and the whale.” (The Bible doesn’t call it a whale, only a big fish). Bill went on to label other accounts as allegory. The pastor replied that since Jesus referred to Jonah and the big fish as fact it must not be…

Unreturnable

Unreturnable

That’s what the event coordinator said to me when I asked to schedule a book signing in an unnamed retail bookstore recently. I had held a book signing there in the past, but now they don’t handle self-published books because after the event, any leftover copies can’t be returned to the publisher. The word lingered in my head as I drove home. Then I began to chuckle. I’m so glad I’m unreturnable in Jesus’ eyes. Once I’ve accepted Him, He…
