Mothers in the Bible – Jochebed

“By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden three months by his parents, because they saw he was a beautiful child; and they were not afraid of the king’s command.”  Hebrews 11:23 Jochebed was a slave.  She was one of the Hebrews whose forefathers had settled in Egypt centuries before when the Hebrew Joseph […]

A New Day

“This is the day the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”  Psalm 118:24 I am happy to report that most of the family seems to have fully recovered from our bout of flu!  I say most, because my 15 year-old son got hit the hardest and is still regaining his […]

A Joyful Mother

“He grants the barren woman a home, like a joyful mother of children. Praise the LORD!”  Psalm 113:9 It’s hard to believe that a whole month has gone by since my last post!  Thank you for all the wonderful congratulations.  I have wished that I could reply to each person, but my hands have literally […]

Got Wisdom?

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”  James 1:5 I don’t know about you, but I definitely feel a lack of wisdom in raising my children.  What works with one child doesn’t necessarily work with another, […]

My Mother, My Friend

“Her children rise up and call her blessed.”  Proverbs 31:28 My mom has been visiting for the last couple of days, and I have been enjoying having her here very much!  She has been a real encouragement to me, and I always enjoy just being with her.   I can truly say that I am […]

Unqualified

“Why are you cast down, O my soul?   And why are you disquieted within me?   Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance.”  Psalm 42:5 I have not felt qualified to post anything for the last several days.   Who am I to think that I […]

Temptation Escape

“No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”  I Corinthians 10:13 Temptation is a daily […]

Pestered, or Blessed?

“Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine in the very heart of your house, your children like olive plants all around your table.”  Psalm 128:3 Part of the price that we pay for the blessing of children is the discomfort that is often a part of pregnancy.  I have spent the last 3 days […]

A Wise Fool?

“Even a fool is counted wise when he holds his peace; when he shuts his lips, he is considered perceptive.”  Proverbs 17:28 The Proverb chapter for today included a verse that reminded me of a humorous incident that happened several years ago. When I first started homeschooling, I was blessed to be a part of […]

A Soft Answer

“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”  Proverbs 15:1 As part of my scripture reading, I like to read the Proverb of the day.  (There are 31 chapters in the book of Proverbs, so I read the chapter that corresponds with the day of the month.)   Today’s chapter […]
