Whether Ye Eat or Drink

Proverbs 31:23- “Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.” You all have heard the expression, “Behind every great man is a great woman.” This statement originated in the mid 1940’s, and expresses the thought that some woman, somewhere, had a hand in the success of a […]

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 […]

Subliminal Opinions By Malissa Custer Proverbs 19:20- “Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.” Recently, a friend asked me for input. A seasoned mom brought a thought to her concerning her child. Hard to swallow, yes. A blow to her pride, I’m sure. A lot to think about, […]

SPRING CLEANING Spring is in the air! I think it’s really coming…finally! For us northerners, it has been a long, hard winter, with lots of snow, frigid winds, below zero temps, and more blizzards than we care to recall!

Whether Ye Eat or Drink

Proverbs 31:22-  “She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.” When I first read this verse, I wondered what the Lord would have me write about, and how it would apply to this article which is normally centered around food.

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.

Naps & Snacks By Malissa Custer One of my very favorite Bible stories is that of Elijah.  In 1 Kings 18, this theatric story unfolds.  The challenge has been given to the prophets of Baal, and what a dramatic scene unfolded there.  My God, the same God of Elijah, showed up that day and proved […]

Political unrest, wars and rumors of wars, disease, famine, natural disasters, men’s wickedness displayed and applauded – and those are just all the things that ARE actually happening without adding any speculation to that list. Especially once […]
