This World is Not My Home…

As I sat and pondered things that had taken place in the last several weeks, I was reminded of how temporary our stay is here on earth. All the earthly possessions that we hold dear, are but fleeting moments in time. A familiar song came to mind, from which I drew the title of today’s… Continue reading This World is Not My Home…

Dreary Days

The day was drear. The sky was gray. It felt as if it was pressing in from all sides. Would the sun shine again? It seemed like the rain fell continuously. And it wasn’t just that way outside, but also it felt like that inside. But amidst the bleak day, a ray of light appeared.… Continue reading Dreary Days

Excuses

A New Day Dawning

Having recently started working third shift, I soon found there was something that I longed for during each shift. No matter how tough the shift was or how easy it was, there was a moment in the shift that seems to fill me with peace and revive my weary human body. “What” you might wonder?It is… Continue reading A New Day Dawning

But the Greatest of These is Love!

1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.  2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and… Continue reading But the Greatest of These is Love!
