If Only

By Susan Niswonger / 5 years ago

A Road Called Survivor

By How do / 5 years ago

When you grow up in a life surrounded by poverty, drugs, violence, and more than anything, emotional pain, you learn to become one of two things: You will either become a statistic caught up in the welfare or prison system, or you become a survivor.

You Can Have The Cookie Later!

By Susan Niswonger / 5 years ago

“Mo, mo,” a little voice pleaded, through the cookie Caleb had just shoved past his crumb-ringed lips.  It is so hard for this Grandma to resist his requests, especially when accompanied by the cutest little smile you have ever seen.  I gathered all my resolve and answered, “Not now Caleb, wait until after lunch.”  The […]

By Don Doran / 5 years ago

Good last day of the work week morning. I am at that awkward age of man when all of your friends wear magnifiers. I personally have to take may glasses off to read, however, my wife and many others I know put on glasses to magnify the print so they are able to read it. I noticed the other […]

Promises

By Martin Schmaltz / 5 years ago

“What!” you may be exclaiming: “That is absurd, when can God’s promises hurt?” May I offer a response – when they do not seem to be coming to pass. Think for a moment of the excitement you experience when the Lord gave you a promise. Maybe it is about your job, finances, loved ones or […]

By Sheri Boulet / 5 years ago
