Tired Women!

by

I AM A TIRED WOMAN is the title of the following anonymous article [marked by the *’s] I ran across a few years ago. (Excuse me if it offends you by saying this, but the author had no issue with saying she was a woman, and no difficulty verbalizing women are in some ways different from […]

Mixed Marriages!

by

Someone observed that marriage is like horseradish — men, and women, sometimes praise it with tears in their eyes. Marriage can bring tears of unparalleled joy, or tears of intense pain and grief. After the Lord, a good marriage partner can be the greatest help we have in life. As the old marriage ceremony goes, […]

God Wants to Acquit You!

by

A quote attributed to a man named Paul Washer blessed me since I happened upon it — “I have given Christ many reasons not to love me. None of them changed his mind.” To that we should all say, “Amen” (see Romans 3:23) and also, “Praise be to God” for the love that compelled Him […]

Inconvenient Truth About Marriage!

by

Helen Rowland said, “Marriage is like twirling a baton or eating with chopsticks. It looks easy until you try it.” So it does. But it’s not easy. The prevalence of divorce proves that. Al and Tipper Gore stunned many when they announced in June 2000 that after 40 years of marriage, they were calling it […]

Like Birds of a Feather!

by

The pop / soul singing group “Sister Sledge” was formed in 1971. The group consisted of sisters Debbie, Joni, Kim, and Kathy Sledge. This set of sibling singers achieved spectacular success internationally at the height of the “disco” era of modern music. In April, 1979, they released their breakthrough album “We Are Family” which included […]

Eastern Airlines Flight 101, operating with a four-month-old Lockheed L-1011-1 Tristar, carrying 163 passengers and 13 crew members, left New York’s JFK Airport on Friday, December 29, 1972, at 9:20 p.m., for a non-stop flight to Miami International Airport. No one could have guessed that within three hours many of them would be dead. The […]

God’s Grace Works!

by

In early 1990, retired Alabama dairy farmer Jack McWilliams and his family released a juice to consumers called “JOGGING IN A JUG” (Google it for a fuller story!). It claimed health benefits including improved cardiovascular health and reduced risk of heart attack, cancer, and other things – all without jogging one step or any physical […]

Jumping to Conclusions!

by

Why is it so much easier to jump to conclusions (and very often WRONG conclusions) about people than to assume the best about them? There’s a story about a man sitting in his living   room one evening when he suddenly called to his wife — “There goes that woman Charlie Brown is in love with.” […]

God’s Grace!

by

Some wag said, “I don’t want to brag, but I put a puzzle together in one day and the box said 2 to 4 years.” Allow me to spring off of that goofy thought to address the very glorious but serious Bible subject of the grace of God. God’s grace is not a puzzle to […]

Escaping a Grave of Guilt!

by

Jerry Bridges blessed me when I ran across the following quote from him: “Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God’s grace. And your best days are never so good   that you are beyond the need of God’s grace.” Bridges statement reflects Bible teaching. Saul of Tarsus, before […]
