A Faithful Christian Wife

O, to be A Faithful Christian Wife! I was reading some different articles and a thought struck me: how will I be remembered? And then I was mulling over some more aspects of this— I don’t know what first sparked line of thinking, but it’s led me to reflect on the life of a precious sister in the LORD who has dedicated her life to her husband and family – most notably and obviously in the recent years of her husband’s complete physical disability. Then,

Spurgeon on Mothers

Charles Haddon Spurgeon was England’s best-known preacher for most of the latter half of the nineteenth century – Spurgeon was twenty years old when he became the pastor of London’s New Park Street Church. Imagine that, at twenty years old! The motto of Spurgeon’s ministry and Metropolitan Tabernacle church in London England was, “We Preach Christ and Him Crucified. Here’s a small taste of what he concluded regarding mothers. How we must reflect on these powerful sentiments.

O dear mothers, you have a very sacred

Motherhood, A Call To Carry On

Motherhood: A Call to Carry On

Carry on, Dear Sisters. When you’re drop dead tired and there’re still several hours and as many chores left to do at the end of the day: Carry on. When you have so much to do you don’t know how you’ll do it all: Carry on. When you have so many needs to fill and seemingly not enough resources to fill them all: Carry on. When you’re weary and successes are few and failures are many: Carry on. When you

Meet Him In The Morning

Dearest Sister~

It truly is a joy to me to share with other sisters in the LORD the good things He has done and is doing in our midst. Though we cannot always see or understand the workings of the LORD, He is, indeed, at work and all God’s ways are good. We can count on Him for that.

Consider being at the threshold of a brand new year, a clean slate, and unblemished path lies ahead. By the time a week or

Regard Not Your Stuff

Regard Not Your Stuff

And so, I encourage you to rest in the Lord… fret not over what God’s doing in your life or where He’ll call you to go or what He’ll call you to do. Regard not your stuff. No matter how things seem to you to be today: God cares for you, the Holy Spirit is ever making intercession for you. The LORD Jesus has taken care of everything that concerns you. God says He will be found by you when you call upon His name.

the suicide option

Through our lives we have experiences that are etched on our hearts and minds — experiences that shape our thinking, shape our reactions, shape our responses, shape our decisions — maybe even shape our initial theology or lack thereof. If these etchings were recorded on 3×5 cards, in time we’d have quite a card file full, wouldn’t we? Events and experiences, lessons and influences all recorded on cards make up our individual card catalogs. It’s interesting to me, every now and then, to come across a card I

The Power of Music

The Power of Music

Music. It tells a story, makes us smile, makes us cry, warms our hearts, consoles our hurts, tells our stories. That’s the power of music.

This morning one of my daughters sent a text, a picture of her home’s front flowerbed: hyacinths and dozens of tulips just beginning to bloom. How sweet of the Lord to give her that gift — this is the first Springtime in her new home and so the various plantings done by the previous owner are just coming into view. This is just an example
