Luke 9:23-25 (NIV)

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…


And He said:  “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.  Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”  Matthew 18: 3-4 (NIV)


The best that I can recall how their Daddy related the story to me, was that my two Granddaughters, Hannah and Ellie Kate, were playing with their American Girl dolls at their home one recent afternoon.  (more…)

A Better Spirit

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…


In that day the wolf and the lamb will live together; the leopard will lie down with the baby goat. The calf and the yearling will be safe with the lion, and a little child will lead them all.”

                                                            Isaiah 11:6 (NLT)


Another cold morning has set in even as the sun rises to begin to warm a bit of the rest of the day.  All indications are that we can look forward to a few more freezing stretches throughout our area during the month of March.  (more…)
