Not a Burden

I’ve had a heavy heart lately.  I’ve been reading others’ thoughts about child rearing.  It seems we need to be reminded that children are a blessing.  This is something our society does not want us to consider.  We have been trained to devalue the lives of the little.  Abortion is over the counter.  The career […]

There’s Room For You

Mark 5:24-29 “So Jesus went with him, and a large crowd was following and pressing against Him.  A woman suffering from bleeding for 12 years had endured much under many doctors. She had spent everything she had and was not helped at all. On the contrary, she became worse.  Having heard about Jesus, she came behind […]

Drum Beat

One can easily fall into the trap of loving the “sound of her own drum.”  Perhaps it came after hearing that “you did such a wonderful job during the training session.”  Or was it following a solo that “went even better than I had hoped?” Could it have crept in when you were younger, missing […]
