Serving God With Excellance

Whiter Than Snow

posted by dhanny

    We finally have the first snowfall of the winter in Ohio.  Is there anything whiter than new fallen snow?  I don’t think so.  I doubt if God would have used that as an object of comparison regarding our sins, […]

Some Bunny Loves Me

Have you ever had a pet bunny rabbit?  They are so soft and cuddly.  I love to rub my cheek over their warm fuzzy coat.  Bunnies are special little pets who give lots of love to their owners. There is […]

Patience is a Virtue

posted by dhanny

     Yesterday I spent 71/2 hours waiting in a hospital waiting room while my husband had a knee replacement.  Patience may be a virtue, but it isn’t my area  of strength, unless it’s regarding children.      I am grateful that […]

Blessed In The City And Blessed In The Field
You hear many Christians complaining about paying their tithe to the church.  They also hesitate to give offerings and alms, for fear of not having enough to pay their bills.  My husband and I have been tithing for over 25 years and have found the rewards to be great.  We don't tithe with the id

Winter's on Its Way
Depending on where you live the weather can changed drastically during the changing of the seasons.  If you live in Hawaii or Florida the changes will not be so dramatic.  Since I live in northern Ohio, I get to enjoy the beauty of each season.  I must confess that summer is the best for me.  I

Who Can We Believe?
I really know very little about politics, but I know I'm sick of all the negative TV adds and the unsolicited phone calls regarding everyone from senators to the current presidential candidates.  Why can't they just tell the truth.  For every new accusation against one person, the opposition has t
