Winnowing…

The past few days I have had images of winnowing wheat and chaff in my mind. I have read scriptures about wheat and chaff and understand the basic thought of it. Yesterday while looking at quotes I came upon this quote, “But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one canContinue reading “Winnowing…”

Excitement…

I used to live in a major metropolitan city. Our house was situated on a hill and our property extended down the hill to the road. We had a deck on our upper floor and several times a week we would hear the helicopters circling overhead and see the lights flooding our lower lot. AboutContinue reading “Excitement…”

Come and See, The Chosen. A Review…

I have never written a review. I don’t consider my opinion to be one that others would think would accurately describe something, so I have avoided such things. A couple of weeks ago, a Christian blogging page I follow asked a question if God had ever asked you to do something out of your comfortContinue reading “Come and See, The Chosen. A Review…”

A Memory of A Friend…

A meeting that was ordained from God. Such was a friendship that began so many years ago. When we arrived in Japan in 1976, we wereContinue reading “A Memory of A Friend…”

Still others go to church for their yearly obligation to be fulfilled. I was raised as a Catholic. Easter week was spent mostlyContinue reading “Easter…”

We all wait, we all know what it’s like. As a child, we would waitContinue reading “The One About Waiting….”

Scrapbooks….

Almost forty-two years ago we left Japan for Maine. I remember standing in the living room of our government quarters in Bangor, ME with tears running down my face. I was homesick. Not homesick for my hometown, but, lonesome for the familiarity of living in Japan. I wanted to be able to walk down theContinue reading “Scrapbooks….”

Fear Mongering…

This afternoon, hubby and I had a conversation about fear.   I had mentioned that everywhere I looked and everything I read had an element of fear.   There is no one area of life that is not covered in fear. Fear of health situations.   Fear of wearing masks for fear of catching disease, fear of notContinue reading “Fear Mongering…”
