Understand Their End

By Susan Niswonger / 3 weeks ago

When I’m feeling just a little envious of others, a little prideful of my experience with God or a little sorry for myself, the 73rd Psalm usually comes to my mind.   I especially like to dwell on the 17th verse; “Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.”  I find that […]

Hashtag BTW

By Susan Niswonger / last month

Hashtag BTW The 21st Century has become the Golden Age of Communication, hashtag #norealconnection.  We are more connected than at any other time in history, yet we have less personal contact with friends and relatives than we had a century ago.  By pushing #3 on my cell phone, I am immediately connected with my husband […]

Life’s Danger Zone

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of months ago

I have been on a life-changing, healthy eating plan since January.  Every month I set a mini-goal of weight loss and achieving successful lifestyle changes.  Most months I achieved my lifestyle changes but fell short of my weight loss goals.  Although Steve said my weight loss goals were too high, I felt sure that one […]

When Do I Get Mine?

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of months ago

When Do I Get Mine? “I am so tired”, I cried during my morning devotions.  “I can’t take another whiner”, I whined.  “Where’s mine?”  “When do I ever get some?”  My kids won’t listen to me, the neighbor didn’t wave, our congregation is getting smaller and even the dog is sick. It sounds so childish […]

The Alarm Clock Just Buzzed

By Susan Niswonger / a few months ago

The Alarm Clock Just Buzzed Sleeping peacefully, snuggled under a cozy quilt, I was suddenly awakened by the shrill sound of an alarm clock.  I am known in the family as an “early bird.”  My eyes pop open at first light and I hit the floor running.  I am the one who walks into the […]

Terms and Conditions

By Susan Niswonger / a few months ago

Terms & Conditions In the last few years, the Internet has become an integral part of our everyday lives.  We use it to communicate with loved ones, share pictures and daily activities on social networks, learn what is happening in every country of the world, purchase new toys and sell the old ones.  If you […]

The Greatest People In The World

By Susan Niswonger / a few months ago

Have you ever wondered how “the other half” lives, wished your home, car or other possession was like a friend’s or desired any life but your own?  We have all allowed our minds to explore the world of, “What if?”  I have discovered in the last few months that the best life is the one […]

MY LIFE, HIS PLANS

By Susan Niswonger / 6 months ago

MY LIFE, HIS PLANS Last week I spent a few days with my granddaughters, Mackenzie, Madison and Anabel.  We call it “Grandma Camp” and they get someone on one time with Grandma, including sleeping in the same room at night.  On Tuesday night, Madison was fast asleep, but Mackenzie was having a hard time settling […]

Beyond Hope

By Susan Niswonger / 6 months ago

I prefer to spend a little time with God early in the day.  There are fewer distractions and my thoughts are clearer.  I am guilty of doing most of the talking and as the Bible states it, “making my petitions known.”  About 4:00 in the morning is when God likes to talk to me.  God, […]

Stones of Memorial

By Susan Niswonger / 9 months ago

Some time ago, I watched a funeral of an elderly lady over the internet.  This is the fourth funeral I have watched in the last few years.  These were people I have seen and heard all my life, yet I have never shaken their hand, spoken to them, or even been introduced.  She was not […]
