This article was originally written in 2015. After seeing conversations online between Christians, I see that it is time to republish the piece. The lack of discernment within the body of Christ is alarming. “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have […]

God's Grace ~ God's Glory!

We are losing our minds to the world’s way of thinking. Even Christians are forgetting that God gave us the gift of memory by which to store His precious Word.

Electronic devices are good in their place, but they can never give us life or accompany us to the grave.

When we are dying, we cannot hold a phone in our hands. If the only data we have is stored in our devices, our spirit and soul will have nothing to hold to.

As God’s people, we must commit to memory the truths of His Word. This is the only means for living and dying in peace with Him.

Psalm 119, the longest chapter in the Bible, teaches us the importance of God’s Word. The following are a few of these verses as my prayer.

 Psalm 119:

11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not…

Fewer doctrines of the Christian faith are more comforting than the sovereignty of God. It humbles you in good seasons, provides hope in hard seasons, and gives joy in all seasons. The doctrine of God’s sovereignty is a constant nourishment for the soul.
But how do we DEFINE sovereignty?

A.W. Pink defines it this way: “The sovereignty of God may be defined as the exercise of his supremacy. Being infinitely elevated above the highest creature, He is the Most High, Lord of heaven and earth. Subject to none, influenced by none, absolutely independent; God does as He pleases, only as He pleases.”

This is true. But we must not be mere academics only. We have to apply this truth not just to our minds, but also to our hearts. If we do the former without the latter, we…

Every now and then, when it is most needed, God reminds us, well let’s make that He reminds me,
He is indeed still there and still in charge.

I don’t know about you but I have just felt so beat down as of late.

Two thoughts to get you thinking.


I am like the sick sheep that strays from the rest of the flock. Unless
the Good Shepherd takes me on His shoulders and carries me back to His fold,
my steps will falter, and in the very effort of rising, my feet will give way.

St. Jerome

(sheep farm, Killarny Ireland / Julie Cook / 2015)

Firstly—- I read the following July 4th post written by our freind and
most knowledgeable Christian sister IB.

As I read it, I felt warm tears falling down my cheeks.

I too have most recently deeply felt her words.
A sense of pleading that our Chruch leadership does what they are entrusted to do…
that being to lead their flocks—come hell or high water.
Not cower in the corner of current ideologies…

A day later, I read a post by our dear friend and former Anglican Bishop, Gavin Ashenden..
A post that mirrored…

Out of the Blue


The real Himalayan Blue poppy over on the blog..Tish Farrell  Writer on the Edge   for May 22 is just so ,so pretty.  I just ‘needed’ to make one ,or two ,or three in paper since that is what I do. Do look her up and enjoy all of her writing. She spent a good deal of time in Africa years ago and writes so interestingly about all of her adventures while there with her husband. My own dream trip to Africa is just a dream but I would love to check the bucket list  and go some day.

While I am here ….There seem to be several new wonderful souls who have clicked follow on my blog. Thank you …and even though I don’t post as often as I thought I would…you are most welcome and please continue to enjoy the blogs I repost from those I follow and you never know when I might jump in on my own. I really do have great intention …things just get in my way.   Like the repainting of my kitchen. There of course is a story here but maybe another time.

Please leave a Hi so I know you were here and remember…This is the Lords day…REJOICE.


Which side are you on?

It saddened me to hear that Dr. Ravi Zacharias had passed away and I prayed that the Lord would comfort his grieving family. But then just last week I prayed for my cousin who had lost his Roman Catholic father and the week before that I prayed that the Lord would comfort my Mohammedan neighbors who had lost their mother to cancer. Death is indeed a grievous thing and we should grieve with those who have lost their loved ones and pray that God would comfort their hearts. [Rom 12:15]

All that said, I do not grieve for Dr. Ravi Zacharias as I would grieve for a brother or sister in Christ, for the plain reason that the ‘Jesus’ he preached and the ‘gospel’ he eloquently defended is not the Gospel the apostles preached and contended for.

The apostle Paul…

Ravi left this world to be with Jesus this morning (19 May 2020). This is the link to the Obituary for Ravi Zacharias. Please take the time to read it. It is a testimony of what God can do with one man. I take comfort in knowing that Ravi now sees Jesus, His Lord and Saviour, face to face and in addition, is in the presence of his Christian brother Nabeel Qureshi and many others, who Ravi also longed to see.

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

The Source I am using for this article is not a Conservative leaning website. The site is” and it belongs to Robert F. Kennedy Jr. So no liberal can accuse me of sourcing right-leaning websites on this topic.  

Kennedy’s foundation is based on “Truth” and not politicized.  He knows how children all over the world are being harmed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation!

From Robert Kennedy Jr:

And do you want the lowdown on Dr. Fauci, the NIH doctor who is ALSO on the board of directors of the Gates Foundation? Here it is:

Through the years, I have written extensively about Bill Gates and his connections to Big Pharma; and on the untold number of children in underdeveloped countries he has harmed and killed with his vaccine “cocktails.”

It was a pleasant surprise to come across the foundation of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr:
