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, …

2017 ~ Mother’s Day ~ by susan werthem

Over the past week I have seen many posts from friends on Facebook about Moms. Most of my friends wrote of the loss of their Mother. My Mom went to be with The Lord in 1990. I was only 37. Although it seems like a century ago the emotional pain at times is still raw. …

Blessed is the nation

Woe is me...the cleansing of Christmas and Christianity is a sign of the times. The powers that be have determined anything referencing Christianity is a thorn in their flesh. My teeth are set on edge when I read that children cannot sing Christmas carols or mention Santa...it seems in America the blind are leading the blind. I find this debate to …
