In Awe Of God The Creator

When I walk outside each morning now, the lack of scorching heat surprises me.  As the seasons change yet again, I find myself in awe of God the Creator of heaven and earth.  Even as a child, I could connect to God through the created world.  An appreciation for this beautiful world we live in would prompt me to worship God. Scripture says, “For His invisible attributes, that is, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen since…

True Contentment

“I know how to make do with little, and I know how to make do with a lot. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being content—whether well fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in need. I am able to do all things through him who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:12-13 Cambridge Dictionary tells us that contentment is happiness and satisfaction, often because you have everything you need. I don’t know about you, but there aren’t…

Helping Others Around The World

Jesus came near and said to them, “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth.

Giving Children Responsibility

Do your children do chores?  Many people feel differently about having their children help around the house or having a set list of chores they are responsible for.  Children learn life skills when given chores to do.  They may not do them as well as you would, but with time they will get better and better.  Giving children responsibility helps to keep them grounded, be less entitled.  Children do not always love doing chores, but life isn’t all fun.  This…
