Never Too Old to Grow Our Relationship with the Lord

Never Too Old to Grow Our Relationship with the Lord

In the course of my reading and personal devotional time, I make a practice of writing down questions that need my deep reflection and prayer.  I have found it to be a good exercise in spiritual growth.  We never get too old to grow in our relationship with the Lord.  There are always areas of […]

How Great Thou Art

How Great Thou Art

Little Emily was having difficulty with the Lord’s Prayer. She prayed, “Our father, who does art in heaven.”  How often do you look up at the sky to observe God’s heavenly art?

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

The 1991 edition of “The Baptist Hymnal” has only one of the many hymns composed by R.

Preparing For Christmas

Preparing For Christmas

Christmas is just a week away and the time of year that is supposed to be filled with joy, excitement and anticipation is often filled with anxiety, sorrow, fatigue, depression and stress.  We crowd our schedules, set unrealistic goals, fail to plan ahead and feel the pressure of being behind. Just when you think that […]
