You are in Good Company!

By Don Doran / a couple of years ago

Good morning! It is a beautiful day to praise the Lord. Many times we seek instant gratification. We want results now! We are a microwave society and want all of our benefits right here and now. However, again, God does things differently than we do and He does it in His own time. Most of […]

Impatience Will Always Birth An Ishmael

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of years ago

Gr’ma, Gr’ma, Gr’ma, GR’MA!!!! Caleb’s impatience was coming through.  I had promised him that we would go downstairs and play after I put Baby Nathan down for his morning nap.  Caleb has the patience of a 3 year old and although he may understand the word “later,” later occurs to him much sooner than it […]

FIVE HOURS AT WATER GATE NEHEMIAH 7:73 – NEHEMIAH 8:1- 12 The end of Nehemiah 7 and the beginning of Chapter 8 is somewhat reminiscent of the spirit the Pilgrim Fathers must have had when their first harvest was reaped in Jamestown.

When God doesn’t want us to know.

By Michael Winskie / a couple of years ago

It’s The Power Behind The Story!!!

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of years ago

Every year, after Thanksgiving, the controversy begins.  Should I say Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays?  Is it Christmas Vacation or Winter Break?  Can we sing Silent Night or should we stick with Jingle Bells for the School musical program?  Should we chance setting up the Nativity Scene in front of the court house, a Christmas […]

Certain Death

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of years ago

The nation has been consumed with Hurricane Ike for the last two days.  For a few hours even politics and Sarah Palin reports were pre-empted.  I was fascinated by the updates and progress reports.  The forces of nature have a way of showing how helpless and vulnerable we are even with the latest technological advances.  […]
