Ballad of the Unborn

The original version of this post was written and posted Monday, January 20, 2014. When I first wrote this four years ago the death toll from abortions since 1973 stood at 50 million.

Read Through the Bible in 2018

The Christmas season is finally upon us and the halls are decked, music is in the air, and plans for holiday parties and events are filling the calendars.

As The Mother of a U. S. Army Soldier

Lamentation

First posted in December 2012, in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting. Yesterday morning, yet another heartrending mass shooting took place.

Have Thine Own Way, Lord!

Monday Memories Originally posted March 2, 2016, This came to mind as we revisited this subject in our Sunday school class again yesterday morning. I have a hymn winging through my heart as I go about my several quiet tasks at home. Of course, I can't remember all the words, but the refrain and the... Continue Reading →

Words, Words, Words…

Monday Memories Originally published August 17, 2010, and still holding true today. My love for words keeps me reading, fuels my writing, and has led to my owning more books than I can possibly read—but I can hope, can't I? My love for the Word of God also continues to grow, and has found rich rewards... Continue Reading →
