Looking Up from Electronics

Live in harmony with one another. Romans 12:16a Sitting in the waiting room I looked around. No one was saying a word. Nearly all had their head down, looking at an electronic device. When I was a little girl I remember Mom chatting with those around her at the doctor's or dentist's office, grocery store, …

Sweet Phrases

Early this morning one of our good friends contacted us; his wife's pathology report said "No Tumor Present."  Sweet sweet words. "No Tumor Present."

#ChooseLove by susan werthem

Recently I viewed a video on Facebook of a young child, a toddler, lovingly feed yogurt to an older woman. She apparently had suffered a stoke. The tenderness in which this boy spoon-feed her and wiped her mouth brought tears to my eyes. This was truly Love in Action. If my life was filmed, would …
