Learning how to determine the “enough” factor in life is a real challenge, isn’t it? There is such a fine line between what we think we need and what we really want! We sing the song bearing the words “Count Your Blessings” often in our worship services and if you’re like me, you end up […]
How Healthy is Your Heart?
I’ve never experienced the trauma of a heart attack! I’ve experienced the chest pains that would seem to indicate one, but with further tests it was determined to be the result of stress. It’s really hard to imagine the stopping of my heart … yet it happens every day throughout the world to many people. […]
What I Missed Today …
“I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go into the house of the Lord.’” (Psalm 122:1) Sundays! Sunday is such a special day. Sunday is the Day God’s people are able to gather together as they share in a spiritual feast. What wonderful memories are stored in my mind of those special days […]
Growing in Patience …
“Show me Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth, and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day.” (Psalms 25:4, 5) If I were to ask you how is your patience level these days … what would be your response? […]

Freedom we all hold dear now is at stake.” You’ll probably recognize these […]
What’s The Rush …?
“This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad” (Psalm 118:24 NKJV). Driving a vehicle in traffic can be absolutely terrifying, can’t it? It doesn’t matter whether the speed limit is 40, 60, or even 85 as it is on some stretches of the open highway in west Texas! People […]

All of these situations occur, are real and can really be challenging, can’t they? Perhaps one of the most difficult situations in any person’s life, […]
Lest We Forget To Remember
It was on the 29th of May in 2004 that America dedicated the National World War II Memorial in Washington, DC. It is intended to pay tribute to so many who served in this costly war. There is an inscription near a wall that honors those who were willing to give their lives for our […]
