He shares that Fridays are characterised…

God’s Justice Can’t Be Turned By Donations or Earthly Power

It is a comfort that God’s justice does not change. What is wrong is wrong. What is right is right. He will not suddenly say that what is wrong is right or what is right is wrong when someone offers up money, food, and other donations. No drama of any kind, no parade, no outwardly…

Let’s Pray It By Ear

How long does a vapor last?  What freedictionary.com defines as “ Barely visible or cloudy diffused matter” lasts just momentarily. Really fleeting. That’s what the bible describes as the duration of our lives. James 4:14b  You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Hence, the prayer for wisdom to spend the finite, limited time…

This Year’s Easter Celebration: Passover Meal

On Good Friday, I gave a friend an overdue call (three months late) about something we had talked about in January.

Easter Girl

My friend, Teresa, called me “Easter Girl”. I agree. In my life, Easter is so special. It has nothing to do with me, who I am, or what I have done for apart from God, I can do nothing. It is because of who Jesus is and what He has done. And there is nothing…

Mind Set on Things Above

Colossians 3:2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. When I put my oven setting at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, it doesn’t always accurately go to and remain at 350 degrees. There is a thermostat that detects when the temperature is going above or below the temperature setting and then the oven adjusts its heat emission to reach the temperature setting…
