Holocaust Remembrance

As Israel observed Holocaust Remembrance this week, I was reminded of the story of Corrie and Betsey ten Boom hiding Jews in Holland in WWII.

When Corrie and Betsey were sent to Ravensbruck Concentration camp, and felt they could not bear the suffering around them, they prayed, "Will You carry this too, Lord Jesus?"

The Lord made it possible for them to have prayer and Bible studies with the women in their barracks. Corrie remembered, "The blacker the night around us grew, the brighter and truer and more beautiful burned the Word of God."

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
In all these things, we are more than conquerors 
through Him that loved us. 
Romans 8:35, 39

You Can Make It!

"If I could just be like someone else... if I could be in their family... if I could have what they have... if I could do what they are doing, all would be different and all would be well.   No, precious one. That is a ruse.  I am the One who has made you like you are, and placed you where you are.  Yes I know the circumstances you face are a challenge.  One day you will look back and thank Me.  Right now you can't  see it from your perspective.  You don't think you can make it.  Yes you can.  Yes you will.  I am here moving you to victory."
Beverly Robinson "What The Lord Is Saying Today," September 8, 2011. 

Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 
Romans 8:17-18

Don't Come Unraveled

Grandmother would embarrass me when I was a kid. If I was wearing a new dress she had made for me, I could count on her turning up the hem of my dress to show one of her lady friends her neat hand-stitched hem, sometimes even in church!.

Grandmother compared sewing for me - to sewing for a broomstick. (I no longer resemble a broomstick in any way!) So she thought that the bolder the print, and the fuller the skirt, the better I looked. She took pride in telling how many yards of material she had used, and calling attention to her even stitches "so it would not ravel".

Only years later did I appreciate the countless hours Grandmother spent hemming those yards of material. I thought about the loving care and hours of prayer my family prayed for me when I read this quote: "A day hemmed in with prayer is less likely to unravel."

Resting Place

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace 
Whose mind is stayed on Thee 
When the shadows come and darkness falls 
He giveth inward peace 
O He is the only perfect resting place 
He giveth perfect peace 
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace 
Whose mind is stayed on Thee. 
Vivian Kretz

Praying for all of you, that you will have peaceful sleep.

Sunshine or Rain

One spring day I set out to run some errands when I spied a menacing cloud in the west. I decided to stop at the grocery, thinking I could hurry fast and beat the storm. Just as I was paying the cashier, I heard rain pounding the metal roof and looked out to see torrents blowing sideways. I made it to the car, drove home, and unloaded the groceries. Drenched to my skin, I sat down to catch my breath, when brilliant sunshine burst through the window.

Jesus never said we would dodge every storm. There will be sudden downpours, but He promises to be with us, in us, and for us, all the way.

“So let us know, let us press on to know the LORD. 
  His going forth is as certain as the dawn; 
    And He will come to us like the rain, 
     Like the spring rain watering the earth.”
Hosea 6:3

More Precious Than Earthly Wealth

There is no need to fear when times of trouble come, even though surrounded by enemies! They trust in their wealth and boast about how rich they are, yet not one of them, though rich as kings, can ransom his own brother from the penalty of sin! For God’s forgiveness does not come that way. For a soul is far too precious to be ransomed by mere earthly wealth. There is not enough of it in all the earth to buy eternal life for just one soul, to keep it out of hell. Psalm 49:5-9 

What shall it profit a man, 
if he shall gain the whole world, 
and lose his own soul? 
Mark 8:36

If I am afraid

If I am afraid to speak the truth lest I lose affection, 
or lest the one concerned should say
"You do not understand",
or because I fear to lose my reputation for kindness, or
if I put my own good name before the other's highest good,
then I know nothing of Calvary love.
Amy Carmichael

I have been listening to Elisabeth Elliot on youtube, and she quoted this poem by that had influenced her life. I have been guilty of backing down when I should have stood my ground, or nodding in agreement when I should have argued my case. So this poem really spoke to me.

He Arose!

My favorite hymn for Resurrection Sunday!

Up from the grave He arose
With a mighty triumph o'er His foes.
He arose a victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever with His saints to reign.
He arose! He arose!
Hallelujah Christ arose!
Robert Lowry

1890's

My grandmother Estelle was born in 1894. If she were here she would be 123 on April 25.
She remembered the first time she saw an airplane fly over their community, and how the "old folks" were scared to get into an automobile when they were the newest thing.
A little trivia about the 1890's:
Boll weevils destroyed the South's cotton crop.
Ellis Island opened.
Thomas Edison invented silent motion pictures.
The first bottled Coca Cola was sold.
Bayer invented aspirin tablets.
Other items patented in this era were pinking shears and zippers, which Grandmother certain put to good use!

Hidden in My Heart

As I get older, I find that I forget words and names, and misplace things, but one thing I hope I never lose are the Bible verses, stories, and hymns I learned as a child.

Daddy would sit in his chair by the picture window on Saturday evenings, and we would read the Sunday School lesson. He would help me memorize a Bible verse each week. I remember standing in front of him, gazing out at the setting sun, saying verses.

My brother, sister and I learned the 23rd Psalm from the time we were small.  I am thankful to be one of His sheep. May I always listen for His voice.

The LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD
Forever.

Elisabeth Elliot Quotes

The secret is Christ in me, not me in a different set of circumstances.
The will of God is never exactly what you expect it to be.
 It may seem to be much worse, 
but in the end it’s going to be a lot better and a lot bigger.
Don’t dig up in doubt what you planted in faith.
God has promised to supply all our needs.
 What we don’t have now, we don’t need now.
Fear arises when we imagine that everything depends on us.

If you believe in a God who controls the big things, 
you have to believe in a God who controls the little things.
Elisabeth Elliot
I got to hear Elisabeth Elliot in person years ago. I have always admired her and her husband, Jim Elliot, missionaries to Ecuador in 1956.

Sunday Best

Sunday morning in 1954 meant scratchy crinolines and frilly socks for me, and shiny leather shoes and a studly bow tie for my big brother. It is funny the things that I distinctly remember from so long ago.

At Easter, my Mother bought me a see-thru plastic purse with hairbrush set and pretend cosmetics inside.

Do you have a favorite gift or item you remember from childhood?
















Blowing Bubbles


Kids just seem to come into this world knowing that rain puddles are for stomping, steps are for leaping off of, bath water is for splashing on the floor, and a straw in milk is for blowing bubbles.

As I got older, I stopped blowing bubbles in the milk, but the Bible says I never have to stop bubbling over with joy.

May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing - bubbling over with hope. Romans 15:13 Amplified

Sunrise Sunset

My first year of teaching school

My first year of teaching school was 1972 in rural north Georgia. The new wing was still under construction when classes started and I had to compete with the sound of hammers and the shouts of workmen. I taught first grade and we had a lot of "nature lessons" outside for those first few weeks!

The school was surrounded by cornfields parching in the late August heat. The sky was filled with the sound of cawing crows.

Many of the children in county were from low-income transient families and there was no preschool or kindergarten. They needed to learn all the basics that kids today know before beginning school. We had no library, art, or music classes, and the teacher sat at the table with the children during lunch and played played ball with them at recess. That was a lot of togetherness!

I can still remember the names of some of the kids (who are now over 50 years old). One boy's mother told me one thing her son remembers about first grade is that we always said the blessing together before lunch. And I remember that our principal began every faculty meeting with a heartfelt prayer for God's blessing and guidance. As a young teacher, I sure needed it!

Beautiful Day

I went for a drive Sunday afternoon, and it seemed every bush, tree, and flower was in full bloom.
I know many are getting snow north of us, and there are storms in the south. Praying everyone is safe.

They sang a hymn and went out

Our ladies Bible study group observed the Lord's Supper this week. We were reading about Jesus and His disciples at Passover the evening just before He was betrayed. Matthew 26:30 tells us that after they had eaten the bread and drank the wine, they sang a hymn and went out to the Mount of Olives.

I wondered what they might have sung. I read that Passover tradition was to sing from the Psalms, closing with Psalm 118.

I thought of Jesus singing these words, knowing that suffering and death on the cross were only hours ahead
.
The stone the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;
the Lord has done this,
and it is marvelous in our eyes,
The Lord has done it this very day;
let us rejoice today and be glad.
Psalm 118:22-24 NIV

Too Hard

I once taught a little guy in reading and math groups, who often spent the first two minutes of any test moaning, "This is to-oo-oo ha-a-ard!!" When he finally got started, he usually scored 100%.

Sometimes when I am going through a "test", I sit down to pray, but instead, find myself whining to the Lord: "This problem is impossible!"

Does God ever answer: "Ooops, I never saw this coming!"

He is all-knowing God, and our loving Father A friend of mine likes to say, "All of our trials are OPEN BOOK TESTS!

He Lives

The eyes of Yahweh roam throughout the earth
to show Himself strong for those whose hearts are completely His.
2 Chronicles 16:9a 

He lives! He Lives!
Christ Jesus lives today.
He walks with me
And talks with me
Along life's narrow way.
He lives! He lives!
Salvation to impart.
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart!

Good Shepherd

Lord, when doubts fill my mind, when my heart is in turmoil, quiet me and give me renewed hope and cheer.

Peace, Peace wonderful peace
Coming down from the Father above
Sweep over my spirit
Forever I pray
In fathomless billows of love

Next Generation

I will teach you hidden lessons from our past—
stories we have heard and known,
stories our ancestors handed down to us.
We will not hide these truths from our children;
we will tell the next generation
about the glorious deeds of the Lord,
about his power and his mighty wonders.
So each generation should set its hope anew on God,
not forgetting his glorious miracles,
and obeying his commands.
Psalm 78:3,7
Now my granddaughter is memorizing verses and  reading Bible stories to me!

Hosanna

The blind and the lame came to Jesus in the temple, and He healed them. But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that He had done, and the children who were shouting in the temple, “Hosanna to the Son of David,” they became indignant and said to Him, “Do You hear what these children are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes; have you never read, Out of the mouth of infants and nursing babies You have prepared praise for Yourself’?”
Matthew 21:14-16 NASB

Will bear my burdens too.

Daddy's Testimony

My Dad gave his life to Jesus when he was a teenager, and he loved the Lord, and lived a life that honored God. When he was about 16, his older sister, Mildred, who was about to be married, got sick and died unexpectedly at home.

I have Daddy's Bible, where he wrote in the margin of Luke 16, that this is the passage that convicted him of his own sin, and his need to repent and receive forgiveness through Jesus. He realized then, that each person has to come to Jesus personally, and that, if we put it off until we are 'older', we have no guarantee of tomorrow.

“There was a certain rich man,” Jesus said, “who was splendidly clothed and lived each day in mirth and luxury. One day Lazarus, a diseased beggar, was laid at his door. As he lay there longing for scraps from the rich man’s table, the dogs would come and lick his open sores. Finally the beggar died and was carried by the angels to be with Abraham in the place of the righteous dead. The rich man also died and was buried, and his soul went into hell. There, in torment, he saw Lazarus in the far distance with Abraham.
“‘Father Abraham,’ he shouted, ‘have some pity! Send Lazarus over here if only to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in anguish in these flames.’
“But Abraham said to him, ‘Son, remember that during your lifetime you had everything you wanted, and Lazarus had nothing. So now he is here being comforted and you are in anguish. And besides, there is a great chasm separating us, and anyone wanting to come to you from here is stopped at its edge; and no one over there can cross to us.’
“Then the rich man said, ‘O Father Abraham, then please send him to my father’s home— for I have five brothers—to warn them about this place of torment lest they come here when they die.’
“But Abraham said, ‘The Scriptures have warned them again and again. Your brothers can read them any time they want to.’
“The rich man replied, ‘No, Father Abraham, they won’t bother to read them. But if someone is sent to them from the dead, then they will turn from their sins.’
“But Abraham said, ‘If they won’t listen to Moses and the prophets, they won’t listen even though someone rises from the dead.’”
Luke 16:19-31

God Provides

Remember the former things of old,for I am God, and there is no other.  I am God, and there is no one like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, “My counsel shall stand,  and I will do all My good pleasure,”
Isaiah 46:9-10

As I was reading in Genesis 22 this morning, I was amazed again at Abraham's words to his son Isaac:

"God will provide for Himself the Lamb."

About a thousand years later Mount Moriah would be the site for the temple that Solomon built, and about a thousand years after that it was the place where the Lord Jesus Christ would be crucified, becoming God's provision to cleanse us from sin, and clothe us with His righteousness.

Abraham called the name of that place The Lord Will Provide, as it is said to this day, “In the mount of the Lord it will be provided.” Gen. 22:14

New Jerusalem

I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.  And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
This song based on Revelation 21 thrills my heart.


Staying Calm in a Storm

A while back, when we were under a tornado warning, I took granddaughter Kaedyn into the bathroom in the center of the house, since we had no basement. To get her mind off of the storm, the only thing handy was shaving cream. So we covered the counter with lather and drew in it and then pretended to be Santa by giving ourselves white beards.

I read where another Mom took her daughter's mind off the storm's frequent lightning by having her girls strike a model's pose, pretending that the flash came from a camera.

Do you have any tricks for taking kids' minds off of a tense situation?

Attitude Adjustment

Our pastor told us that we can choose to change our bad attitudes. He said, "I'll prove it to you. I've seen you people in the drive through line at the fast food with your children. You are threatening the little darlings, 'If you don't behave, I'll get out of this line and we'll go straight home!'"

Then it's your turn to order, and you put on your sweetest smile and say, "Good Morning! I'd like four happy meals, please and thank you."

When I am tempted to complain and quarrel, the Lord reminds me, in the same amount of time, I could  pray for the situation and speak a blessing over the person.

Let all those who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice; let them ever sing and shout for joy, because You make a covering over them and defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in You and be in high spirits.
Psalm 5:11 Amplified

Praise the Lord

I am overwhelmed with joy in the Lord my God!
For he has dressed me with the clothing of salvation
and draped me in a robe of righteousness.
I am like a bridegroom in his wedding suit
or a bride with her jewels.
The Sovereign Lord will show his justice
to the nations of the world.
Everyone will praise him!
His righteousness will be like a garden in early spring,
with plants springing up everywhere.
Isaiah 61:10-11 NLT

Sunshine After Rain

Like the sunshine after rain,
Like a rest that follows pain,
Like a hope returned again,
Is the peace that Jesus gives.

Like the soft, refreshing dew,
Like a rosy daybreak new,
Like a friendship tender, true,
Is the peace that Jesus gives.

Oh, the peace that Jesus gives
Never dies; it always lives.
Like the music of a psalm,
Like a glad, eternal calm,
Is the peace that Jesus gives.
- Haldor Lillenas, 1885-1959

Feeling Safe

You will keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on You
because he trusts in You.
Isaiah 26:3

The Hebrew word for trust in this verse (batach) means to attach myself, to feel safe, confident and secure.

As a small child, I had to make frequent visits to the eye doctor in downtown Atlanta. Once Daddy had to take me to work with him for a few minutes before my appointment. He was a mechanic on the city buses in those days.

I was amazed at the constant flow of buses rushing in and out of the lot, and deep pits in the garage floor where mechanics stood to work underneath the buses. But Daddy carried me around on his side, and I held on tight, so there was no chance for me to get run over or to step off into a pit.

I need to keep my mind on Father God these days, when there are many natural disasters and man-made catastrophes. I can't overcome in my own strength, or see every pitfall that lies ahead, but my security is in obeying what the Lord asks me to do, and in clinging to Him. As Corrie ten Boom prayed in a Nazi prison camp, "Hide me in the center of Your will!"

Power Steering

Back in the 60's, Grandpa would spend his Saturdays buying old cars to refurbish. He had to have someone to drive them back home. So he recruited my brother and me. We really got an education in how to drive a lot of different cars.

I remember the first time I took a sharp turn in a car with manual transmission, and no power steering. I needed a lot of room for error!

Our Great-grandpa could never get the hang of driving a car with an automatic transmission. He kept trying to shift and pump an imaginary clutch!

My son sent me an encouraging word about learning to obey God automatically...not trying to figure everything out the hard way, but just trusting that God will give wisdom when we ask.

I confess I have spent many wasted hours trying to reason things out "manually" when I could have just trusted God to steer me by His power.

If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think you’re going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open.

The Wonder of It All

        There's the wonder of sunset at evening.
        The wonder as sunrise I see;
        But the wonder of wonders that thrills my soul
        Is the wonder that God loves me.

Treasure Hunter

I took this pic at the Pirate Display at Union Station, Kansas City, int 2012.
I was reading a story about a modern-day treasure hunter who put his life savings into looking for a sunken cargo ship. He had done a lot of research and was sure he had figured out where the ship had sunk so many years ago.

A distraction occurred when he stumbled upon a few bars of silver, and stopped seven miles short of where he was originally headed. He then went into debt and spent fruitless years scouring that area but finding nothing else.

At length, he decided to go to his original destination, and there he found the sunken ship with millions of dollars in gold and silver still in the original treasure chests.

Father, You have called me to love You and love the treasure you place right in front of me every day. I pray that I don't detour from any plan other than Your original Treasure Map!

May your spiritual experience become richer as you see more and more fully God's great secret, Christ Himself! For it is in Him and in Him alone, that men will find all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Colossians 2:3

Record Warm Days in Southern Indiana

Our ladies' Bible Study is this morning. We are in Romans 8.
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus,
who do not walk according the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set us free
from the law of sin and death.

Silhouette and Reflections

The heavy morning fog lifted and it turned into a gorgeous afternoon for a walk. This bare tree made an interesting silhouette against the deep blue sky.

Last Saturday was granddaughter Kaedyn's last game for the season. I thought the reflection of the lights on the glossy gym floor made a pretty pattern. By the way, her team WON!

A Beautiful Story

I think this is such an uplifting story, I wanted to share it. I saw that Norma McCorvey ('Jane Roe') died on 2/18/17. I knew that she had become a believer in Jesus Christ in 1995, and had become a pro-life advocate, but I had never heard this story about her first experience in a church after her salvation.

This short article by Pastor Jim Garlow brought tears of joy to my eyes.

http://www.charismanews.com/opinion/63139-norma-mccorvey-s-first-church-experience-as-a-believer
I was so blessed yesterday to hear First Lady Melania Trump
 lead the audience in praying The Lord's Prayer in Melbourne, Florida.
As she prayed, Forgive us our trespasses 
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
 I was reminded of the scripture that says God gives grace to the humble. (James 4:6)

I love the last verse of Grace Greater Than Our Sin:
Marvelous, infinite, matchless grace,
Freely bestowed on all who believe;
You that are longing to see His face,
Will you this moment His grace receive?

Day of Prayer

The National Day of Prayer was signed into law by President Truman in 1952 after Billy Graham and his team held a five-week Crusade in Washington, D.C.

Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn said, “This country needs a revival” and gave final authorization for a Congressional Act authorizing Graham to hold services on the Capitol steps on Sunday, February 4 that year.

It must have been overwhelming to Vice President Truman to suddenly be sworn in as President shortly after Roosevelt's death, in the middle of World War II. Truman said:
"At this moment, I have in my heart a prayer. As I have assumed my heavy duties, I humbly pray, Almighty God, in the words of King Solomon: 'Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad, for who is able to judge this thy so great people?'"

This year the National Day of  Prayer will be on May 4. I am praying the prayer of Solomon for President Trump and Vice  President Pence.

A Bite of Something Sweet

A box of candy under his arm
Adds to a man a touch of charm.
A smile of welcome he's sure to win
Who, carrying sweets, comes walking in.
And this is well-known, in the candy shop
Many flaws are hidden with chocolate drops.
Edgar A. Guest
I remember Grandpa would sometimes drop by our house just as we were finishing supper and he would have a little sack of treats in his coat pocket from Leon's Quick Shop. Grandpa wasn't much with flowery words, but he remembered to bring us kids a 'bite of something sweet'!

God's reassuring Presence

I'm never out of your sight.
You know everything I'm going to say
before I start the first sentence.
I look behind me and you're there,
then up ahead and you're there, too—
your reassuring presence, coming and going.
This is too much, too wonderful—
I can't take it all in!
Psalm 139:3-6 Message

My youngest son Cameron is on his way from New Jersey to visit with me for a few days. I will enjoy his company, as he likes to sing and play the piano, and play Scrabble. And he's a good cook!

The Mighty Power of God

I sing the mighty power of God, that made the mountains rise;
That spread the flowing seas abroad, and built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom that ordained the sun to rule the day;
The moon shines full at His command, and all the stars obey.

Isaac Watts


We had and incredible pink, aqua, and purple sunset this evening in the west, while the 'snow moon' was rising in the east. I don't know if I will be able to see the eclipse and comet tonight. Isn't God's creation amazing!
