Weeding My Garden

Weeding My Garden

I have a client who I help a few hours a week.  Recently, I have volunteered to pull some weeds for her.  I knew that she would enjoy having this done.  She is mostly housebound and spends hours looking out her windows at her flowers. I am not very knowledgeable about...

I Must Make It!

I Must Make It!

 A few weeks ago, a five-hundred-year flood came to Hanging Lakes area in Colorado.  I’m glad that Todd and I went when we did. We got married in 1996 and went on a honeymoon to Colorado…Durango train, Estes Park, Colorado Springs, and more.  It really was a...

The Great Sand Plum Debate

The Great Sand Plum Debate

We have a couple of sand plum trees in our yard.  This year, they have really produced.  These little trees have been loaded down with fruit.  It’s been a little sad to me because these look like something in the cherry family…so yummy.  But they aren’t!  It’s amusing...

Mama, Shut the Door!

Mama, Shut the Door!

Last week I did a lot of driving, and I happened to hear a preacher on the radio.  He was telling about the prophet's widow in II Kings chapter 4. This woman was desperate and went to Elisha for help.  Not only had she lost her husband, but now she was going to lose...

Cabinet Update

Cabinet Update

After people do a do-it-yourself project, I find it interesting when they do an update to tell how it’s holding up.  Consider this a six-month update. See, six months ago, I painted my kitchen cabinets.  I really didn’t know what I was doing, so I did a lot of reading...

Never Too Old

Never Too Old

One of the neat things about sending a weekly devotional is the people that I get to meet.  I now have friends who I have met only through correspondence.  (I’m always excited when my friends introduce themselves to me…whether it be Arkansas, Indiana, Tennessee, or...

Just Asking

Just Asking

My heart has been touched this last week.  My family was in Shelbyville, Indiana, for the only vacation Bible school we scheduled this summer.  I was teaching the verse “If two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for...

Sweet Smelling

Sweet Smelling

I have cleaned houses for years.  One of the most interesting experiences was the time I was hired to clean up the mess left behind by a foster child.  This precious child had gone to his bedroom and made a mess of his feces.  This same bedroom was going to be used as...

The Year Uzziah Died

The Year Uzziah Died

Guest Post by Abigail Hamilton “I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne…”  I was reading Isaiah chapter six when God spoke to me. Isaiah got this wonderful vision of the Lord.  I wanted to see that.  I wanted to see the Lord, sitting high upon His throne.  Even the...

For My Good

For My Good

Today I had lunch with a friend.  I told her that the things that we don’t write down or tell, we tend to forget.  (That’s why it’s important to testify.)  Then, I went on to tell her the story of how God had worked for me in getting my house.  She asked, “Have you...
