JOY: An Advent Devotion-Poem

Our Adult Choir is working on a wonderful cantata “A Song of Joy”! It is one of the best I’ve seen in a l long time! When the Apostle Paul listed the fruits of the Spirit, the first was love. Joy came next! That does not surprise me a bit! All of us crave to… Read More »

LOVE: An Advent Devotion-Poem

My dear husband David frequently reminds me that the heart of Christmas and the heart of Christianity can well be summed up in John 3:16. Actually that verse has been called “the Gospel in a nutshell”. So here it is: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever… Read More »

PEACE: An Advent Devotion-Poem

Centuries before Jesus was born, Isaiah foretold His birth. He prophesied: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful.

HOPE: An Advent Devotion

Just Checking In

A minister passing through his church in the middle of the day, decided to pause by the altar and see who had come to pray. Just then the back door opened, a man came down the aisle. The minister frowned as he saw the man hadn’t shaved in a while. His shirt was kind of… Read More »

Where Does Jesus Dwell

John 1:35-40 ” Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They… Read More »

Roots (Shallow or Deep)

Have you ever noticed how that when trees are growing in a place where the water is very plentiful, they have shallow roots? You see, water sustains the life of trees. When the water is plentiful, the trees don’t have to dig(work) their roots into the ground. As a result when the storms and high… Read More »
