JACOB

Reading through Genesis we garner truths concerning parents showing partiality to one child above another.  In particular we refer to Isaac who had married Rebekah. Genesis 25:19 and following!  She had twins, Esau and Jacob.  Isaac favored Esau, and Rebekah favored Jacob. (You need to read the entire story.) On an occasion when Esau cameContinue reading “JACOB”

THE WINGS OF A DOVE

I wrote recently about the many birds that come into our back yard.  They are all beautiful to watch and though we do not feed them, they must know how much they are appreciated by their daily return. A number of them are doves; whenever I take time to sit and watch them I noticeContinue reading “THE WINGS OF A DOVE”

BY THE NAIL PRINTS

This morning I was awakened, (Thankfully singing to myself) “I shall know Him by the nail prints in His hands.” I shared with our daughter Cathy how I had not heard it in “ages”. She reminded me that she used to sing it frequently. I spent some time trying to remember all of the words,Continue reading “BY THE NAIL PRINTS”

I LOVE YOU, STILL!

One should never tire of hearing the words of John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” From the fall of Adam and Eve, recorded in Genesis 3, there is prophecy after prophecy that unfolds theContinue reading “I LOVE YOU, STILL!”

A RAINBOW OF PROMISE

The rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth. Genesis 9:16 One cannot help but be fascinated each time one sees a rainbow. Of course, the double rainbow even seems more fascinating and will causeContinue reading “A RAINBOW OF PROMISE”

A PILLOW OF ROCKS

Then he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. Genesis 28:12 Our host had made every effort to have us feel welcomed, and we did. However, if you are like me, you have certain ideas about whereContinue reading “A PILLOW OF ROCKS”

FEELINGS

We are a “feeling” oriented society! I know, it has been that way since the beginning of history. I cannot locate the rest of that little poem, but the opening portion says: “Feelings come and feelings go, and feelings are deceiving…” Recall, if you will, the story of Genesis 25 concerning Jacob and Esau. AsContinue reading “FEELINGS”

PLACED IN A COFFIN IN EGYPT

“Joseph said to them, ‘Do not be afraid, for am I in the place of God? But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive. Now therefore, do not be afraid; I will provide for you and your little ones.’ And he comforted themContinue reading “PLACED IN A COFFIN IN EGYPT”
