MY LIFE, HIS PLANS

By Susan Niswonger / 3 weeks 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 / last month

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 / a few 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 […]

Searching For Lost Signal

By Susan Niswonger / a few months ago

Searching For Lost Signal My life is now run by satellite.  Forty years ago, we were amazed at the futuristic technology portrayed on Star Trek and James Bond.  The actors were able to go places and accomplish things found only in the daydreams of adventurous screenwriters.  Today, although, we still cannot be teleported to other […]

Today I Brought My Sons To The Temple

Almost 31 years ago, God blessed me with a beautiful baby boy.  Sixteen months later a second little boy arrived to complete our family.  Both of my boys attended their first church service almost from birth; Steven at 4 days old and Philip at only 2 ½ days old.  When they were only a few […]

I Can’t Seem To See What You Are Saying

By Susan Niswonger / last year

I Can’t Seem to See What You are Saying It had been one of those mornings I never want to repeat.  The headache had been building since the day began, but I knew I couldn’t give in to the pain because two little boys were depending on me.  Finally, Nathan was napping and Mickey Mouse […]

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 […]

The Land Of Just Right

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of years ago

Goldilocks was hungry, and there were three bowls of porridge and the story begins.  She tasted Papa Bear’s porridge, but it was too hot, Mama Bear’s turned out to be too cold, but Baby Bear’s was JUST RIGHT, so she ate it all gone.  Then Goldilocks set in Baby Bear’s JUST RIGHT chair until it […]

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 […]
