Easter Sunday is here. I love the Easter holiday for a variety of reasons. Some of my favorite childhood memories were made every Easter at my grandparent’s countryside home.

I still … Continue reading Easter Joy
Dear friends, this is now my second letter to you. I have written both of them as reminders to stimulate you to wholesome thinking. 2 I want you to recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command given by our Lord and Savior through your apostles. 3 Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own … Continue reading Devotion: 2 Peter 3
The encouraging word of the day is … happiness! I often wonder what most people think happiness is. Webster Dictionary defines happiness this way.

Merry CHRISTmas everyone! Hope that your holidays are going well. In all of your celebrating, be sure to take time to thank God for sending his only begotten son Jesus to be a living sacrifice for our sins.

The world is coming to an end! Or at least that’s what the Mayans have people thinking. I have been reading the newspaper and seeing all the posts on social media networks today and I can’t believe that people are really believing that the world is coming to an end tomorrow. Twitter has had #endoftheworldconfessions trending all day. All awhile I have been sitting here … Continue reading The world is coming to an end!
