“Happy They That Trust In Jesus”


HAPPY they who trust in Jesus;
Sweet their portion is and sure;
When the foe on others seizes,
God will keep His own secure:
Happy people!
Happy, though despised and poor.

Since His love and mercy found us,
We are precious in His sight;
Thousands now may fall around us,
Thousands more be put to flight,
But His presence
Keeps us safe by day and night.

Lo, our Saviour never slumbers,
Ever watchful is His care;
Though we cannot boast of numbers,
In His strength secure we are:
Sweet their portion,
Who our Saviour’s kindness share.

As the bird beneath her feathers
Guards the objects of her care,
So the Lord His people gathers,
Spreads His wings, and hides them there:
Thus protected,
All their foes they boldly dare.

~By Thomas Kelly (1769-1854)~


Neither Silver Nor Gold

“Temptation beckons. It is a constant battle for every believer.“


Temptation beckons. It is a constant battle for every believer. The spirit is willing but the body is weak (Matthew 26:41). We wake up to a new day, and yet we are drawing closer to the day of reckoning. This is not meant to be a scary post. This is actually a confession post. My weakness draws me to worthless things but in the back of my mind, I am constantly reminded that we are living in times where people are indeed eating and drinking, marrying and given in marriage, oblivious to the fact that everything could all change in the blink of an eye.

A fire opal reminds me of how this world is going to be destroyed- by fire (2 Peter 3:10). My mind has always been intrigued by the end times since I was a little girl. I was scared like any normal…

When your children…

…. are in grade school/high school and they say they are sick. They say that can’t go to school!

Mom says:

“Oh you’re fine-no fever- get ready for school.”

When your children…

…are adults and they say they are sick. They say that they must go to work. They have no fever.

Mom says:

“I think you better stay home! You shouldn’t have to go to work when you’re sick! What’s wrong with your boss?! Want me to call in for you? Need some chicken noodle soup?”


What’s wrong with this “picture”!

Just a thought 😁❤️

Q: Who shall separate us?


Romans 8:35-37

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

Thank you for loving us, Dear Lord, not because of what we do or who we are! Nay! But because of Who You graciously and mercifully are!


Remember Him

“Remember him …”

New Hope for Dry Bones

As I child church was a huge part of our lives. I have memories of being very small laying on the floor under the pews while the pastor preached.

My aunt started the church we went to in the basement of her house. We sat on some wooden seats that came from an old auditorium of some sort and fanned ourselves in the heat with cardboard fans from a funeral home.

I remember that church moving from her basement to a brand new building that seemed huge to me. It was the First Assembly of God in O’Fallon, Missouri. If I go into that old part of the church now it seems so small. I was there when it got enlarged even though I was still too young to be any help. I did get to help the next time the building was expanded and a new auditorium was built.

Jesus, Satan & The “Free” Thinker

“When people claim “free” thinking, they really mean free from everything that has to do with God. ”


It is interesting that the name that demons flee from (Luke 9:49-50) is being used as a profane expression of shock, dismay and everything unfortunate. I don’t think I’ve personally heard someone use Buddha, Baha Ullah, Muhammad, Zoroaster and millions of other religious figure in conjunction with an expletive. Another one is John for toilet. This too is intriguing because Jesus spoke highly of John (Luke 7:28). You can see that anything related to Jesus becomes an object of disdain.

Why do you think that is?

Why must the world profane the name?

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”

Acts 4:12

“Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place
and gave Him the name above all names,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,

Habakkuk 3:17-19

17 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls:

18 Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.

19 The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.

…SMOKE FREE!! All glory and honor to the Good Lord not only for breaking that chain- but for not allowing me to be bound to it again! 🙏🏻❤️

1 Corinthians 10:13

13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

bible-1696374_1920 (2)2084990050..jpgLuke 22:37-38  (NKJV)

37 For I say to you that this which is written must still be accomplished in Me: ‘And He was numbered with the transgressors.’[a] For the things concerning Me have an end.”

38 So they said, “Lord, look, here are two swords.”

And He said to them, “It is enough.”

As Jesus faced betrayal He stood in the company of His disciples…His armed disciples. But, not all of them were armed. As the scripture states, there were two swords. He didn’t say get rid of the them, but He also let them know two swords were enough.

Jesus didn’t say, “We need more swords”, and when Peter used one of them to cut off the ear of one of the soldiers confronting them, not only did Jesus rebuke Peter, He also made a Holy and profound statement that also holds true for guns and all weapons (since of course they had…

“Jesus’ silent years are one of the greatest lessons in the wisdom of God doing all things in HIS OWN TIMING. ”



We all notice the unmistakable silence of Yeshua, Christ Jesus from 12 years of age until 30.

Luke 2:41-52 (NKJV)

41 His parents went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover. 42 And when He was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem according to the custom of the feast. 43 When they had finished the days, as they returned, the Boy Jesus lingered behind in Jerusalem. And Joseph and His mother[a] did not know it;44 but supposing Him to have been in the company, they went a day’s journey, and sought Him among their relatives and acquaintances. 45 So when they did not find Him, they returned to Jerusalem, seeking Him. 46 Now so it was that after three days they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both listening to them and asking them questions.

“One bad batch of cookies today doesn’t mean tomorrow’s will be a bust. Start over again. ”

New Hope for Dry Bones

My great friend, George, is no longer with us.  It seems that time has flown since he went away from this earth.  I remember baking these cookies like it was yesterday and taking them to George as he lay in that bed.  Even though his pain was great, we laughed and remembered the old days. 

Recently I baked some cookies to take to my good friend George Bradley who has been sick. Christy usually does the baking but I wanted to do this myself. I feel a little uncomfortable baking. I don’t do it very often and I am always worried how it will turn out.

So, I started out by trying to make out what the recipe said on the back of the package of chocolate chips. One of the things I learned was to not try baking without my glasses on. Not only was it very difficult to…
