New Year, New Attitude

The noted English architect Sir Christopher Wren was supervising the construction of a magnificent cathedral in London. A journalist thought it would be interesting to interview some of the workers, so he chose three and asked them this question, “What are you doing?” The first replied, “I’m cutting stone for a shabby 10 shillings a day.” The next answered, “I’m putting in 13 hard hours

The “W” in Christmas

Last year, I vowed to make Christmas a calm and peaceful experience. I cut back on nonessential obligations–extensive card writing, endless baking, decorating, and even overspending. Yet still, I found myself exhausted, unable to appreciate the precious family moments, and of course, the true meaning of Christmas. My son, Nicholas, was in kindergarten. It was an exciting season for a six year old. For

The Christmas Envelope

It’s just a small, white envelope stuck among the branches of our Christmas tree. No name, no identification, no inscription. It has peeked through the branches of our tree for the past 10 years or so. It all began because my husband Mike hated Christmas—oh, not the true meaning of Christmas, but the commercial aspects of it–overspending, the frantic running around at the last minute to get

My First Christmas In Heaven

I see the countless Christmas trees Around the world below, With tiny lights, like heaven’s stars, Reflecting on the snow. The sight is so spectacular, Please wipe away that tear. For I’m spending Christmas With Jesus Christ this year. I hear the many Christmas songs, That people hold so dear, But the sounds of music can’t compare, With the Christmas choir up here. For

Take Time To Thank Him

And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. Luke 17:15,16 In ancient times, lepers were social outcasts because of their highly contagious disease. In this passage, ten lepers came to Jesus begging for mercy and

Take A Break

Leonardo da Vinci excelled at many things. He was as a painter, sculptor, poet, architect, engineer, city planner, scientist, inventor, anatomist, military genius, and philosopher. He said something very wise. “Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer, since to remain constantly at work will cause you to lose

Thank Him For Your Thorns

Sandra felt as low as the heels of her shoes as she pushed against a November gust and the florist shop door. Her life had been easy, like spring breeze. Then, in the fourth month of her second pregnancy, a minor automobile accident stole her ease. During this Thanksgiving week, she would have delivered a son. She grieved over her loss. As if that weren’t

Center Your Life On Him

Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. Psalms 37:3-5 This is one of my favorite passages of scripture. What I’ve often noticed,

A Good Citizen

When we think of a good citizen, we probably think of a law-abiding, productive contributor to society who takes pride in his country. I’m sure all of us would like to be thought of as good citizens of the countries in which we live. As believers in Jesus, we have to remember that we have a dual citizenship. We must become good citizens of

Our Helper

The Lord gave us His promise to send us a helper: the Holy Spirit. The word for “helper” in the New Testament Greek is “paraclete”. This word has more meaning then simply “helper.” It was also an ancient term used in warfare. When Greek warriors went onto the battle field, they went out in pairs, so when the enemy attacked they could stand back-to-back, covering each other’s
