Praise the Lord Sunday – Thank God for Fathers

I think sometimes the importance of fathers is overlooked. In our family the fathers are the ones who provide financial stability. When mom is on maternity leave, dad is doing everything he can to make sure the bills are paid. My sweet husband worked two jobs for more than twenty years to make sure our children had everything they needed. Dad is the one who teaches his sons. . .

Refresh Your Soul

Some consider the Bible as only a history book. Some think of it as fairy tales to teach children how to behave. I have heard it said there is no way the Bible could be true, because of the age of the stories and the way it was passed down by word of mouth through time. Others believe the Bible is God’s word. So, which one could it be? . . .

Spread the Love Friday – How Many Can You Help

It feels good to help others, but we don’t have to limit it to special occasions and families, and we don’t have to spend a large quantity of money. Today, I’m going to leave some coupons at a community information area (for you it might be a board) for those who might need them . . .

Try Something New Tuesday – Don’t Let Fear Stop You In Your Tracks!

Have you ever been afraid? Most people would say yes, but does fear stop you in your tracks? Do you have fears of letting your family down? Have you ever experienced phobias? Are you afraid of relationships? Have you ever been afraid to leave your house? . . .

Tell Me Something Good Monday – Just Say No to Cults and Hello to My Little Flare

Over the past couple of weeks my husband and I have seen several programs on television about cults. It seems that charismatic people, with their own psychological issues, draw people in for what might start out to be good. . .

Praise the Lord Sunday – Love Your Neighbors

How do you show love to people who try to tear you down? How do you love others without comparing yourself and your status in society? How do show love to people who reject you? How do show love to friends who constantly speak about people who have rejected you? How do you show love to someone who will not take communion next to you? . . .

Do Our Pets Go to Heaven?

Our dogs are always excited to see us. They never want us to leave. They often give us reason to live. They bring us so much joy in life. Cuddling with Freckles, I realized he is about 15 years old now and won’t be with us too much longer. Earlier this year we said goodbye to our beloved Pom Pom (18 year old Pomeranian) and a couple of years ago we said our farewells to our sweet Mini Me (14 year old Pomeranian). Over the years we have loved and lost many pets and every time it’s been bitter sweet. So, the question becomes, do our pets go to heaven? . . .
