• Jeremiah 24: 6-7

    Jeremiah 24: 6-7 This morning as I was doing my daily devotion, I asked God to show me what He wanted me to learn more about. I generally hold my Bible up on its spine, pray for God to show me His word and let the Bible fall open. This morning the Bible opened to Jeremiah 24. As I was reading I got to verse 6 and 7 and every few words, there was meaning that was being shown to me by God. What I mean by that is that as I read a few words, a different meaning came to me in my head and my heart. Jeremiah 24: 6-7 from…

  • Cleaning the Living Room or Any Room, With Disabilities

    When one has chronic illness, cleaning is not always easy.  No longer can we jump right up and expect to have the entire house clean in one morning or afternoon.   One has to plan to take breaks, and one of the most important things I have realized is that I have to give myself grace.  It too the entire day to clean just my living room.  Yes, you read that right, just my living room.   You want to know what the sad part is?  I really did not even get to do everything I wanted to do in that room.  I didn’t get the fan, baseboards, pictures or the…

I have prayed since I was a younger child, and gave my life to Christ, but it seemed that I would send up P-mails (prayer mail) to God and go about my merry way.  I had never heard the idea of having a personal relationship with Him and becoming closer to…

  • Living to be 950 years old!

    Today my daughter and I were reading about Noah in Genesis, Noah lived to be 950 years old, can you believe it?   I am not sure that I can even imagine living that long.  But God decided that Noah was the only person on the face of the earth that was worth saving.  One of the things that stood out to my daughter was that the animals in the water were never mentioned until the flood water receded. Interesting… I guess I had never thought of the sea life before, in the story of Noah and the Ark.  Were they saved?  Did the fresh water kill off the salt water…
