“I Will Help Thee”
 Do you know how it is to wake up in the morning and feel like the day is already over, because it is packed so full, that you hardly have time to think? In anticipating a busy week ahead, have you ever felt as if you were about to slide into […]

Whether Ye Eat or Drink

Whether Ye Eat or Drink Proverbs 31:17 says, “She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.” As little girls, most of us dreamed of the day we would meet our handsome prince, fall in love and marry him, to then live happily ever after.

Are You Willing? Proverbs 4:13 says, “Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go; keep her; for she is thy life.” There is a principle in this verse that has caused me to ponder ever since I recently read it.  The passage is actually part of many verses on the value of wisdom from […]

THINKING RIGHT I was probably about six or seven years old, when I first heard it. As a child, I recall being so struck by the simplicity of this now familiar verse, that I memorized it on the spot! Philippians 4:13 says, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” I have always […]

Whether Ye Eat or Drink

Proverbs 31:16 “She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.” Spring is here! (Or for those of us living in ND/MN, it is just around the corner … I think). It is time to start planning our gardens. What will we plant this year? Where will […]
