I am of the age that I can recall WW2 and many things since then. I recall much of the details of fear that constantly plagued our little Island of Bermuda, and how we were engaged in every angle of protection. Even at that young age, we had to help dig trenches around our schoolContinue reading “SIGNS EVERYWHERE!”
IT WILL BE WORTH IT ALL
The song-writer said: It will be worth it all when we see Jesus, Life’s trials will seem so small when we see Christ;One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase, So bravely run the race till we see Christ.
After presenting the uniqueness of Jesus being both God and man, he presents the beauty of His purpose, to redeem man who is totally corrupt, into a spiritual child of a sinless God.

OH! WHAT A NAME!
I wish you could have met my friend Jack. He was a hard-drinking, cigar-smoking / chewing laundryman; that is, before he became a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. In his own words, “I should have owned one of the railroad cars for the tickets I bought sending my wife back home to her parents.”Continue reading “OH! WHAT A NAME!”
WHAT THINK YOU OF JESUS?
