The other day I was raking my yard and was burning the debris in my usual burn pile. My little granddaughter, who is about a year and a half old, went running towards the fire. I think she was just amazed at the colorful sight and never really got that close. As I watched I noticed her four year old brother coming out of nowhere, standing between her and the fire with his arms open ...

Is your life too busy? I would imagine that a number of readers would immediately say, "Yes, no doubt." We certainly have a way of filling up the hours in every day, do we not? I recently finished reading a book entitled "Simple Life."
What do you think of when you think of Easter? We need to understand that there is a secular celebration as well as a spiritual one. I don't think there is a problem with celebrating both as long as we don't somehow mingle them together.

Marriage is a blessing given to mankind by God. "And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

I understand this is not the type of article some people like to read. However, when we think about the state of affairs concerning our children, I believe it is necessary. Too many of our children are headed in the wrong direction. I'm grateful for all the children who are on track and doing well, but for those who are falling by the wayside, I think this is good advice.
I believe spring is finally here; the temperature is rising and the birds are singing. This is my favorite time of the year mainly because there is this feeling of coming alive.

The significance of this is that He now sits at God the Father's side offering forgiveness and a ...

Recorded in Genesis 5:24 are the words, "And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him." People down through the years have read these words and asked the question, "How can I walk this way?" As in all things religious we must look into the word of God to find the answer to our question.
There are so many ways one can misuse the tongue. Cursing, tale bearing, gossip, boasting and lying are just a few ways that words can be misused. Cursing in our day seems to have become a way of life for so many. It is as if some people could not talk unless they used a curse word in their speech.
