Determination

Determined. Oxford Languages defines this as: “having made a firm decision and being resolved not to change it.” I’ve had to do that lately. As I sat waiting for a Zoom meeting this morning, I mused over how badly I want to get more use out of this blog. It was a thought that hadContinue reading “Determination”

Lord, Come and See

They said to Him, “Lord, come and see.” – John 11:34 NKJV When I read the story of the death of Lazarus this morning, these simple words struck me.

Devotional — Things Remembered

“But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink, he cried out, ‘Lord, save me!’” Matthew 14:30 All I could think about when my eyes lit on this verse this morning was that Peter remembered the wind from years of fishing on this lake. Wind and storms would come up veryContinue reading “Devotional — Things Remembered”
