A New Day

The country has decided. Mr. Obama will lead this country for another four years. Whether you voted for him or for Governor Romney, please pray for both men. They campaigned hard for their vision of America and gave their all. Unfortunately in any contest there is a winner and a loser. Mr. Romney lost. His family and Mr. Ryan’s family need  our prayers as they put their lives back together.

Pray for the President that he would look to God for wisdom, depending daily on Him. Pray for our nation to come together and heal the divisions that this political season has exacerbated. We are a great nation with many challenges ahead and we need to come together under God’s good grace that has brought us this far. 

None of us know what the future brings but we do know that God is in control. I wrote a book entitiled, Fear Not Tomorow, God is Already There. That is truth. He stands in the future in all His majesty and holiness. He is still on the throne and our trust must be in Him. “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will trust in the name of the Lord, our God.” (Psalms 20:7)

What Good is Christmas?
This is Christmas week. There is an excitement and an anticipation. Strangers greet each other cheerily. Family travels great distances to be together. Lights glitter from windows. Good smells emanate from the kitchen. Children cannot sleep. Mothers are exhausted. And fathers wonder how to pay for i

Lasting Gifts
Well...the house is decorated. The cookies baked. The presents bought - and most already wrapped. Others mailed out. I remember when I treated wrapping as an art form - each was decorated to perfection - almost like Martha Stewart. Gone are those days...to much time and too much money. Now I find a
