TRADITIONS of all kinds! What would the holidays be without traditions?   Although most of us grew up with holiday traditions and have fond memories of them, some families did not.  This month I asked ten friends, aging from 25-78, what they recall about holiday traditions: if they had them, what they were, how they transferred […]

SHUT-INS This is probably seems like an old-fashioned word. It means, “someone confined to the indoors” and can be from any number of things: accident, illness, being a new mother, surgical recovery, etc.  Any church, at any given time, will have various types of “shut-ins.”   Some will be for a shorter period of time, others […]

It’s good to brush and floss! Actually, it is VERY good! Do you brush and floss? As a former Dental Hygienist, that was a question I generally didn’t have to ask when I looked in my patient’s mouth! Just like a cosmetologist can tell if that hair color is “yours” or from a bottle, and […]

More Than One Use Often I receive links on my computer that might say, “The Ten Things to do With Shoelaces.” Or, “Did you know you could do ‘what’ with that?” So, I thought I’d go through many of these and select those things that might have been new to me AND ACTUALLY work and […]

LAZINESS AND SELFISHNESS- THE SAME THING? Recently, the Lord impressed my heart on doing an article on laziness.  I thought, “Well, that will be a short article, as you are either lazy or you’re not!”    While thinking of this topic, we had a visiting speaker at church and his wife held a Ladies’ Session. The […]

Nourishment? Here we are, gently into 2019, and most likely thankful that the busyness of the holiday is over. I realize that this Ladies’ paper routinely and consistently encourages the SAME principles over and over for women. I don’t think there is a wife or mother out there who wouldn’t honestly say, “There are some […]

Let’s Repurpose! Many years ago when Far Above Rubies was first published, I often did a “craft” article. But, to be honest, at my age, my desire to do “crafts” has waned!  My house does not need ONE MORE craft!  In fact, every rummage sale I have, I do “due diligence” to get rid of […]

How Do I Begin? For many people who want to do better in an area, the question is, “How and Where do I start?”  I remember about 25 years ago, helping a young lady who was in MUCH debt.  She was determined to do better in that area and so she bought a book on […]

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 […]

Do You Clean These? No matter how much cleaning I do on a “regular” basis, there are some things that just don’t get cleaned as often, but still require some good old-fashioned scrubbing. With the beloved Spring  Cleaning  opportunities coming upon us, here are some areas that you might not clean as often as other […]
