“All I know of tomorrow is that Providence will rise before the sun.”

Remember Therefore…

These are perilous times in our nation — in our world. Seriously, these are unprecedented days! As we observe the times, the great falling away, the great delusion under which our society continues: the lawlessness, the seeming hopelessness, degradation, evil, anger, immorality; let’s not become weary in well doing — let’s not be led astray, held captive or defeated by the words and actions of the deceivers or the great deceiver himself.

I say all this because potential effects of the warp speed at which society

2016 Another New Year

Could This Be *The* Year For You?

“If ye love Me, keep My commandments.” —John 14.15

O, sisters in the LORD—could this be *the* year for you?

This is when the real change will occur… when we finally seek to know and to live the truths of God’s Word…when we lay our lives at His feet, when we give Him everything we’ve held on to: hands down… when we accept and apply the teaching of the Lord Jesus—demonstrating our love for Him

The Forgiveness Road

Many years ago, I had the privilege of speaking at a retreat in a beautifully tranquil setting. It was a wonderful opportunity for women to be refreshed and renewed away from their normal routines, schedules and life’s demands. And… as happens at most retreats, for some women, it was a time of deep reflection.

It is often the case that women will rest and reflect long enough to realize that a part of them has ceased to really live or they’ve ceased

The remake ACH…

The antiquated AChristianHome site is under ongoing reconstruction. I’ll be adding new Letters to My Sisters as well as linking to pages from the old ACH website. I’m setting up the new site using .COM

The Finished Work of The Cross

The finished work of the Cross is profound. It is finished, Jesus said. He had finished the work God had created Him to do, to complete, to finish: Unto us this child was born, unto us this child was given.

“And they crucified Him…” Matthew 27.35 This is the finished work. This is what Jesus came to do. He came to die — die by the will of God, to shed His own blood, to lay His life down. In that moment a great transaction was accomplished. The […]

Intentional DeCluttering

Over the last month or so, living with less clutter, I’ve experienced some unintended benefits of my intentional decluttering project. Not the least of which has been ease of housekeeping and/or ease of moving from one daily activity to another with very little preparation or tidying. Having been the mother of many children for decades, home organization has been paramount. But even with all my planning and organizing, I still had clutter.

In this process of decluttering over the last couple of months, I’ve mulled over some […]

Tidying. You’re Still You.

The problem with attempting to make dramatic changes, or to carry out new resolutions, or most anything, really, is that we’re still the same people with the same proclivities, habits, personal styles, bents. The tidying, or in my case, the project of eliminating clutter, only lasts as long as the determination/work/project continues. No matter where you are in the project of eliminating clutter or tidying, you’re still you.

You’re still you. I’ve had to repeat this to myself many times in the last couple of weeks as I […]
