Make Like a Tree (Excerpt from “The Scent of Hope)

Did you ever hear someone say, “Make like a tree and leave?” Well, it’s not a nice saying, but the concept of  “men as trees” was not some sarcastic person’s original idea. It came from God. In Psalm 1, the Lord used a metaphor to compare a person who constantly regards His Word and finds […]

You Can’t Take That Away From Me!

Chipper met us at the dining room door for treats almost every day. My children delighted in feeding the fat little fur-ball. Several times I caught my one-year-old son “holding hands” with the red squirrel through the glass door wall—as Chipper’s little paw reached inward and Charles’ pudgy toddler hand pressed against the glass.   […]

Celebrate Wormanhood

All men are worms (Job 25:6). It’s a lowly station, but there’s no denying this scriptural classification includes you and me.

And just as the physical heart can cause our bodies a heap of trouble with […]

Choose Ye This Choice

Some people don’t like to make decisions. Just waiting for them to order in a restaurant can be a test of patience. Others make snap judgments—quick commitments they don’t follow through with. At different times, perhaps, we fall into both of these categories, but taking the middle-of-the-road approach is usually the better choice. Of course, […]

Healing in Your Land

I was asked by a respected leader to "read carefully and prayerfully" 2 Chronicles 7:14-15. I meditated on the passage for a couple of days, and thought I would share my thoughts with you. I hope you are encouraged as you read.  THE BACKDROP Solomon and the Israelites just spent seven days dedicating the new temple with […]

The Bare Necessities of Life: Friends and Chocolate, Part 2

A friend is defined as someone you know and trust, someone you have affection for and who provides cooperation or assistance. The Latin, Greek and English histories of the word all go back to the word love. To be a friend is to love. Applying this to Proverbs 18:24, we could read the verse “A […]
