What Can I Do?

Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and…

Granny’s Verse

“But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil men. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.” — Luke 6:35-36 (NASB) I was glancing through my…

Nelda Grace

She glides through the home making sure all is in order; The pantry is stocked, the bills are paid and in the recorder. She prepares her meals several hours ahead; And instructs each child how to make their bed. She often overlooks her own personal need; To attend to a child’s cry or plea. She…

Bumper Car Faith

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:33-34 NIV I’m finally getting around to blogging my 2011 New Year’s resolution. Yes and it is a month late, the beginning of the second week in February to be exact. I don’t even…

Grandma Wright’s Prayer

What’s your prayer heritage? If you grew up in a household that prayed, what was the oral dialog used when speaking to God? I only now am realizing how richly blessed I was to come from such an abundance of Christian stock. My great grandmothers, both maternal and paternal where devoted Christians. I’ve heard that…

Exposing Your Roots

My dear sweet Aunt Irmarie has recently passed away and has gone to be with the Lord. For 92 years she brightened this world with grace, humility and wisdom. Over the past 4 years, we grew very close, engaging in many delightful phone conversations. She was a Christian mentor, a beloved link to my Mom…

Just Read Your Bible, Honey

The front porch swing creaked with each push of my foot. I was thankful for the screened porch keeping out the Louisiana mosquitoes. I breathed in the moist summer morning air, as I glanced to the other end of the porch. She sat in her old white rocker with a cup of coffee and a…
