When God is Silent

posted by Ruth Graham

It had been a long 400 years of silence. Malachi had been the last “official” word from God. Now the silence was deafening. Life went on but where was God? Did He care? Did He leave them? Did He forget […]

What Good is Christmas?

posted by Ruth Graham

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 […]

Lasting Gifts

posted by Ruth Graham

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 […]

Stealing Christmas

Have you ever felt dull? Tired? Like the color gray? Just no joy in living. No spark of excitement. Everyone on FaceBook seems to have the joy and energy for the season- but you. With the holidays coming on you […]

Let’s Get Real about Bethlehem!

posted by Ruth Graham

Last July the world seemed to wait with bated breath for the arrival of the little Prince of England. No detail was left unnoticed.   Hallmark and others have given us a very unrealistic picture of Bethlehem. Our Christmas cards are […]

The Spirit of Christmas

posted by Ruth Graham

Presents

Christmas is here! We have shopped, bought, wrapped… the “perfect” present for each one on our list. Did I over spend? Did I forget someone? What have I overlooked? What about the birthday Boy? Have I overlooked Him? Each year […]

God’s Silence

It had been a long 400 years of silence. Malachi had been the last “official” word from God. Now the silence was deafening. Life went on but where was God? Did He care? Did He leave them? Did He forget […]

Ho Hum. It’s Christmas Again…

posted by Ruth Graham

Christmas seems to have rolled around faster this year. Perhaps because I am older…Yikes! Perhaps it is because the stores begin to put out Christmas items in July and August.  And how many times can you hear “O Holy Night” […]

Mystery
I love a good mystery. When I travel I always take one along to read - it's a form of escape for me. Some of my favorite mystery writers are Ted Bell, David Baldacci, Clive Cussler, John Grisham, James Paterson. As a matter of fact, last night I ...

Our Future
I think I shared with you last year that I decided to read through the Chronological Bible in 2015. I did. I heartily recommend it. The year's reading ends in Revelation. With all the tragic news of 2015, all the uncertainty, all the ...

New Year Plans
We are entering a new year. We may have plans, goals, and resolutions but have we stopped to invite God into the process? It is good to plan the year. Ask Him meet us in it – to dwell with us there. That’s not only a good thing but a wise ...
