In Every Season

Seasons of Life. Admittedly, a lot of retrospection for me this week– there are now many seasons within these past over six decades.

His Strength is Perfect

‘I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. But sometimes I wonder what He can do through me. No great success to show; No glory of my own. Yet in my weakness He is there to let me know. His strength is perfect when our strength is gone. He’ll carry us when… Read more »

Just Smile.

‘Smile though your heart is aching Smile even though it’s breaking. When there are clouds in the sky you’ll get by If you smile through your fear and sorrow Smile and maybe tomorrow You’ll see the sun come shining through… You’ll find that life is still worth while If you just smile.’ – Nat King… Read more »

“May God bless your life with more miracles than you can count. May your water become cabernet. May your dark storms turn into springtime sun. May he feed thousands upon thousands through your picnic basket of faith. May you walk like the just- healed cripple, see like the was- blind man, live like the was-… Read more »


These past few weeks Heaven has been a lot on my mind – Mrs. Ruth’s and Sara Jane’s passings these past weekends–each had a significant influence on different timelines of my life journey and loved them both dearly. We can only imagine what Heaven is like this very moment. My closest glimpse was in Mother’s… Read more »

Forever Faithful

Remembering an old standard Sunday congregational hymn–‘Are you weary? Are you heavy hearted? Tell it to Jesus…You’ve no other such a Friend or Brother. Tell it to Jesus alone.’ Weary? Yep. Heavy Hearted? Yep. Tired? Yep. Alone? Not ever. Be encouraged today. #ForeverFaithful

Center of My Joy

‘When I’ve lost my direction, You’re the compass for my way You’re the fire and light when nights are long and cold. In sadness, You are the laughter, that shatters all my fears When I’m all alone, Your hand is there to hold, Jesus, You’re the center of my joy All that’s good and perfect… Read more »
