Be A Lifter

By Susan Niswonger / 5 days ago

Are you a doer or an advisor?  We always seem full of words but lacking in the action category although most circumstances require action rather than words.  The following is an excerpt from the devotional book, Encouragement Changes Everything by John Maxwell. Years ago, I came across a piece about someone who fell into a […]

Let Go And Let God

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of weeks ago

I am a take-charge person.  If you put me in any group, after about 2 minutes of pleasantries and indecisiveness, I take charge and usually emerge as the group leader.  It’s not that I have to be the head of everything or even want the role but someone has to guide the group, so I […]

An Engagement Ring From God

By Susan Niswonger / 3 weeks ago

Yesterday was Earth Day.  There were celebrations all over the world to increase the awareness of our responsibility to the environment and its preservation.  My sister reported that she ate at a restaurant that served food in the dark, the grocery store was promoting the use of canvas bags and many trees were planted.  I […]

If it was wrong in 1850

By Susan Niswonger / last month

The Bible is very clear in naming the evil and sin that transcends generations and cultures, however, every generation defines evil and sin in their own terms.  Generational and cultural sins usually have to do with new or changing ideas, expression or technology.  We make laws with specific definition and police the vice until the […]

What The World Is Waiting For

By Susan Niswonger / last month

I love traveling by car.  You may not arrive at the destination as quickly, but the journey is a lot more interesting.  I enjoy traveling through quaint little out-of-the way towns.  You can find the most amazing lawn ornaments and view architecture born in the mind of the homeowner rather than the clean lines regurgitated […]

Disturbed!!!

By Susan Niswonger / last month

I watched my 3-week old grandson as he lay in my arms fast asleep.  Unable to resist, I gently nuzzled his soft little cheek.  It was just enough, he opened his eyes and screwed up his little face; Grandma had disturbed him and he was not happy!  Like Nathan I have settled into a comfortable […]

Make Your Bed With Care, You’ll Have To Lie In It

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of months ago

Make Your Bed With Care, You’ll Have To Lie In It My friends and family think I’m obsessive; I call it organization.  I become dysfunctional in the midst of chaos. There are some things I’m more organized with than others, so no peeking into my closet. I love order-everything needs a place; balance-an item in […]

Mirrors, Reflections and Illusions

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of months ago

As a child, my youngest son Philip had a fascination with mirrors.  If there was a mirror in the room, he could not resist watching himself talk as he told you about his day or ask a question.  To get his attention his dad would stand in front of the mirror.  Phil, never missing a […]

Temptation Ahead

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of months ago

It was one of those beautiful autumn days that you just have to take advantage of, especially if you live in Michigan.  You can ignore the signs, pretend it won’t happen this year, continue wearing summery clothes and refuse to turn on the furnace until November, but deep down inside you know winter is on […]

2016 RESOLUTIONS

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of months ago

Yes, I stayed up last night to watch the ball drop in Times Square, welcome in the New Year and share the first kiss of 2016 with my sweetheart.  This morning I awoke to the real start of the New Year.  The time for excuses is over and the future is now!  I have suddenly […]
