Advent Project

This project could be adapted to other age levels.  Adults could use it devotionally. Since Saturday is December 1, the need for this project to be completed is, well, upon me!  Friday is a day when I usually don’t have any student tutoring and a good day for a project with the grandchildren.   Here’s my …

Advent

Advent is on the church calendar and, in my opinion, should be recognized in the life of all Christian Believers.  At least, the observance of Advent will focus on the Birth of Christ rather than a long list of things to do that have nothing to do with Christmas other than family traditions.  Here is …

A Thanksgiving Exercise

No, I am not referring to that possible jog or brisk walk in the early evening after eating a feast on Thanksgiving day.  We could all do that too. This morning I happened to stop by a blog I read most of the time called “True Woman.”  The title of the blog today intrigued me …

Famous for Faith and Freedom

Hebrews 11 contains the names of what many Bible scholars call, “God’s Hall of Fame.”  They are certainly noteworthy persons who have graced our world’s history out of the gates until the completion of the Word of God with John’s Revelation.  They were men of faith. This week, as we celebrate Thanksgiving Day, I always …

Psalm 100

This is the simple lesson I presented at the Hickory Creek Nursing Home this morning.  I hope it will be a simple reminder to you too. Psalm 100 “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord” Joyful, not crabby.       Joyful, not complaining. Noise, not silence.  Action toward the Lord and not as to man. “all ye …

Stop the Beeping!

My daughter called me yesterday when she heard about the explosion in a nearby housing development.  She wanted to make sure we were all okay.  In a bit of chit chat I asked her about her day.  “Oh Mom, you don’t really want to know.” she replied. In the course of womanly events, she had …
