My Latest Articles on Bible Basics
Do you have all those Old Testament fathers straight in your head? I didn't for a long time. All the Sunday School stories were just fragments jumbled together in my brain. But I've worked hard to get them all straightened out, because it's important to be thoroughly knowledgeable about my faith.
If you are having a grand day, rejoice in it and thank God for the blessing. If you are watching the news and finding it hard to be at peace about the state of the world, be comforted. In Abraham's day and in our day, God moves to bring about the results He has planned since before time began.
From my heart to yours
Watched a tiny spotted fawn out my back window this morning. Too scrumptious. It followed its mama through the huckleberry bushes, tripping and scrambling. Kind of like I trip and scramble trying to follow my Abba. But I grow day by day, stronger and more balanced. (Don’t laugh if you know me and know that I’m really an incurable klutz! I’m talking spiritual balance here!) Summer blessings to you all.
Serving our sweet Savior,
