Now that Easter is over, what's next?

This past week people all around the world celebrated the holiday or Holy Day of Easter. For some it is just time off work or an opportunity to be with the family but for Christians it is a time to commemorate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is to this last group that I wish to address this writing.

Life takes the flavor we give it

Spring is alive all around us. The beauty is evident in the blooming trees and azaleas. It is a wonderful time to live in south Georgia! Unless, of course, you have allergies. Mine stay under control most of the time, thanks to the miracles of modern medicine. But I know what it is like to be so clogged by the pollen that I can't smell a thing. And when you can't smell anything, you can't taste anything. And quite frankly it's hard to enjoy all of the beauty when you feel miserable.

Learn from the eagle

God has put His personal touch in every part of His creation. All creation exhibits His handiwork. Man is the most beautiful and precious of God's creations. God gave man a soul, awareness, reasoning and abilities. He also gave man his own will.

Follow God's instructions

On many occasions we buy something that requires assembly. Inside the box is a booklet telling the name of all the parts and how they fit together. In most cases this booklet is placed aside because we know how to put things together. After several minutes of things not fitting together and having parts left that we are pretty sure should have been used, we reach for the booklet, read and then follow the instructions. To our surprise all the pieces were gone and the item looked just like its picture on the box.

Find the difference Easter can make for you

Easter weekend is upon us and for some this is just a secular holiday; time to have fun, be off work, and be with the family.

The most important day of the year

Tomorrow, in churches all around the world, Christians will celebrate the most important day of the year. We will celebrate Easter. We will celebrate Resurrection Sunday! We will sing songs, and read Scripture, and pray, and give honor to the One who was raised from the dead some 2000 years ago.

Happy Resurrection Day

Today we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord. Easter is a very wonderful time of rejoicing for Christians because the death, burial and resurrection of Christ Jesus are fundamental beliefs. The very fact the Christ died as a ransom for our sins gives us reason to reflect and rejoice during this season. However, when we remember that God raised Him from the dead so that we could be saved, we should explode with joy and be exceedingly glad.

Women's retreat chance for praise, fellowship

The idea of getting away from the everyday hustle and bustle of life is always exciting. But spending a few days on St. Simons Island for a Christian retreat is both exciting and inspirational.

Thoughts inspired by Palm Sunday

Tomorrow is Palm Sunday. Just to remind you, Palm Sunday celebrates the day that Jesus entered the city of Jerusalem to great fanfare and a wonderful reception. The people lined the streets to welcome the Lord. They threw their coats and palm branches on the ground before Him, providing a sort of "red carpet" for His entrance.

Will you be shielded from the fire?

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 telling her to stay back. For you that are freaking out about now, I was standing close enough to intervene if necessary.

Second part of a look at marriage

To help us in fulfilling your responsibilities as man and wife God has given rules to live by. "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing ...

Better answer the door

How many times has this happened to you: Someone knocks on your door, you see who it is, but before you let your guest in, you try to clean up a bit?

Actions speak louder than words

The other day, I was watching the news when a political ad featuring the politician came across my TV screen. He told what he believed and what he would do if elected. Immediately, I thought, "I wonder if his past voting record in politics mirrored what he was saying."

Everyone can be adopted in God's family

The world is full of people wanting to know, "What is in it for me?" This attitude keeps many from ever checking out God's word and obeying the Gospel. They see no benefit coming their way, so why bother with religion?

We should look back to go forward

I was moved recently after reading an article titled "Down Blige Road" in Richmond Hill Reflections magazine. As "transplanted" African-Americans here in Richmond Hill, it helped us understand and get more insight into the pasts of other African-Americans who lived in, worked in and built this community.

Don't wait until 'someday' to follow God

Life is but for a little while. James wrote, "Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away" (James 4:14). What a great reminder of life's brevity, as it can be seen many times during a year.

Gardening teaches to lean on God

As I usually do, earlier this year I planted a little vegetable garden. It's not too elaborate, but it gives me something to enjoy and provides us with a variety of wonderfully fresh things to eat.
