Our Uninvited Evil Guest

Fear gripped our house at midnight. It was a Friday night not like any other Friday night. Our college bound children had informed us prior that we were to provide shelter to six youth-aged visitors they were bringing home.

Skinned Knees But Still Running

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of weeks ago

The Winter Olympics were held in Vancouver a few weeks ago.  I held my breath as snowboarders performed on the half-pipe. I groaned when Lindsey Vonn wiped out on the Giant Slalom and cheered the United States team as they scored to send the gold medal hockey game into overtime.  The grace and beauty of […]

He’s God Of The Mondays Too

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of weeks ago

I am a Facebook junkie!  I love being connected to friends and family, sharing amusing stories and pictures of our kids and grandkids.  Most amazing, however, is the insight into each person’s personality and philosophy that I’m given by the multiple updates posted each day.  Matthew 12:34 tells us that it is from the abundance […]

Who Really Cares Anyway? God Cares!

By Nathan Stanford / 3 weeks ago

Who Really Cares Anyway? God Cares! I had a friend that I ran around with that always had a “don’t care” attitude.  In his mind, it seemed to me, he felt more macho if he pretended not to care what others thought about him or the things he did. We all know that no matter how […]

By Susan Niswonger / 4 weeks ago

Isaiah 61:10 I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness. I am at church playing the piano, everyone is singing and acting as if nothing is out of place, […]
