From My Heart Devotionals

Laid Aside

Laid Aside

As they headed west in covered wagons on the Oregon Trail, they knew that it would be a difficult trip, many times lasting four to six months.They made good use of every inch in their wagons.  The wagons that headed west were not usually the bigger, sturdier Conestoga...

Light

Light

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. Genesis 1:3-4 In one of my husband’s eyes there is a dead spot that does not allow light through.  One of his eleven eye...

I Am King?

I Am King?

(I have told everyone that I would continue to do devotionals until "my barrel was empty." To be honest, lately that is what has happened. Recently, it has been Abigail who has had devotionals on her heart, and that thrills me. I will continue to post her thoughts as...

Wood Putty

Wood Putty

(Abigail Hamilton) When I was twelve years old, I felt like God had called me to ministry, but I felt like I wasn’t doing anything.  It seemed that God was saying, “Wait.  Now is not the time.” I waited and waited.  I went through school.  Then I...

A Sermon in Shoes

I’ve heard a few mother-in-law jokes, and frankly, I can’t identify. I have a sanctified mother-in-law, and that is a rare treat!  She has shown me love and acceptance.  I tell people that I have the best in-laws in the world. Once, I admitted to her, “I’ve...

Find Me Faithful

Find Me Faithful

After months of work, our family album is almost completed. Here is a preview of one of the songs and the dedication from the CD cover. It all started with a prayer… As Fran Hamilton was having her devotions in 1968, God spoke to her heart and said, “I want you to...

Fruit of the Spirit

Fruit of the Spirit

Recently, I heard a group of Sunday school teachers discuss how they adjust Calvinistic material so they can use it.  When one of them taught on the fruits of the Spirit, they completely avoided the week where self-control was discussed. Everyone in the room...

Chiropractors, Backbones, and Other Ramblings

Chiropractors, Backbones, and Other Ramblings

I want to renew my mind.  This is the adjustment where everything else is affected. Last night I read about upper cervical care adjustments. I did not understand at first that the upper cervical care was done with a chiropractor.  And although I have...
