CALLED TO REMEMBRANCE

I watch the morning news as they pour over the “events” of the previous night and the morning traffic.  Without the advertising of the lawyers they would probably have been off the air a long time ago.  In this modern society, where would we be without the lawyers? There is a recorded encounter of JesusContinue reading “CALLED TO REMEMBRANCE”

LIFE’S GOAL

Giving credit where credit is due, I quote concerning “the famous words of Richard of Chichester’s prayer – to enable men and women ‘to know Jesus Christ more clearly, to love Him more dearly, to follow Him more nearly’.” In reading William Barclay’s Daily Study Bible Series on Romans, the above quotation caught my attentionContinue reading “LIFE’S GOAL”

A HAVEN FOR THE WEARY

But I will sacrifice to You With the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay what I have vowed. Salvation is of the Lord. Jonah 2:9 Our 55 foot yacht felt like it was drifting. The winds had not been too favorable and anxiety of arriving in Newport, R.I. in time for the return race to Bermuda was playing on ourContinue reading “A HAVEN FOR THE WEARY”

A VISIT AT THE GRAVESIDE

I go there every week or so, make sure everything is in order at the spot we picked some years ago, check the flowers and replace them if necessary. I do not spend a lot time there, but I usually shed a few tears and leave, saying as I depart: “See you soon Honey!” IContinue reading “A VISIT AT THE GRAVESIDE”

THINGS I KNOW

My cousin was intent on discovering some items for “History” so she could fill in her Family Tree. I had learned long ago that I should just forget about it, but she insisted and went to one who would surely know the information she needed. With her first question came this answer: “Child! Do youContinue reading “THINGS I KNOW”

NO CONDEMNATION

Sweeter words to any Christian cannot be found than in Romans 8:1…”There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” It is more than just a breath of fresh air; it is the sudden realization that where I was, a sinner condemned to eternal damnation, I am now “in Christ Jesus”,Continue reading “NO CONDEMNATION”
