What do you think of when you hear the word desire? Most people probably think of it sexually, and it can be used that way. Webster defines it as ‘to long or hope for.’ We long for a lot of things. Money, fame, good health, better friends, a bigger house, etc. We also hope for… Continue reading Desire
Yesterday, I got to spend a few hours with my great niece who is 9 years old. We were shopping at a marketplace event, and she was intrigued with all the people to see and things to buy. There were a couple of times when she saw something like shell necklaces or velvet scrunchies she… Continue reading Moments
Change. We all go through it. Bad or good, it can be very hard. Sometimes, I think about what it must have been like in the Eden for Adam and Eve. Before sin entered the world. Everything perfect. No weeds. No stink bugs. No looking down to see you are bleeding. No new bruise found.… Continue reading Dust
I’ve talked in my blog before about how much I like music. And I’ve mentioned older hymns we sometimes sing and how I really like some of them. I also love knowing the story behind them, if there is one. The story behind one of them says, there was a musician who was sitting beside… Continue reading Where?

One we sang was Sweet By and By. There’s a line that says, “we will meet on that beautiful shore.” The comments made… Continue reading Sweet By and By

Do you really believe he is tempting us all and wants us to go to Hell when he does? You… Continue reading satan
We are cynical about a lot of things whether we realize it or not. Unfortunately, homelessness is one of them. I confess, I am describing myself when it come to being cynical about homeless people. I think a lot about this and my feelings about the homeless. What do you think when you see the… Continue reading Give Me Your Eyes
There are several passages in the Bible that mention hissing. For most of us, the word hiss has a negative connotation. Snakes do it, and we don’t like snakes. People do it to each other. Sometimes it’s a warning. But in the Bible it is both positive and negative. Shepherds were plentiful, tending their sheep.… Continue reading Do You Hear It?
