Child Training

“Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.”  Proverbs 22:6 Susanna Annesley Wesley (1669-1742) was the mother of John and Charles Wesley, the founders of the Methodist Church.  Susanna was the youngest of 25 children, and grew up to give birth to […]

One of a Kind

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you;  I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”  Jeremiah 1:5 What is it that makes each child so very different?  Just how many opposites can you have?!  Even from the womb I have noticed significant differences.  For instance, […]

The Unclouded Day

“The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.”  Revelation 21:23 I love sunshine! While I know that the spring showers are necessary to bring the green and the flowers that I love so well, it […]

Running with endurance

“Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.”  Hebrews 12:1 A few people know that, after 7 pregnancies during which I struggled with gestational diabetes, I was diagnosed with Type II diabetes just a few weeks before finding out that I was pregnant with the baby I am now carrying.  Because […]

Spring is on its way!

“The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.”  Song of Solomon 2:12 Spring.  It’s my hands-down favorite time of year.  The dormancy of winter makes me feel as if I just want to crawl into bed and […]

Where do I go to resign?

“Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”  Philippians 1:6 Have you ever had one of those days when you felt like a complete failure?  A day when the kids aren’t doing what they’re supposed to be doing, […]
