I have owned my house since July 1994.  It had been a rental, and needed a lot of work before my children and I could move in.   Thrashed carpets, ripped flooring, broken sinks, and dingy walls all had to be repaired, remodeled or replaced.  With the help of friends and family, I did the work …

Immorality vs Decency

When I joined LinkedIn, I joined some writers groups thinking I would learn more about the industry and make some connections.  I joined both Christian and secular.  There are so many posts, its impossible to have the time to read them all , or even skim all the titles consistently.  I can access my e-mail …

Seek His Face

Psalm 27:7-14 7 Hear my voice when I call, Lord; be merciful to me and answer me. 8 My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”  Your face, Lord, I will seek. 9 Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger;  you have been my helper.

Savor the Summer

I don’t know about you, but I do not remember this nice of a summer in all the years I have lived here – which is since April 1970 when my parents moved our family up here from California.  We came up the Alcan on vacation the summer before; I wondered why my parents wanted …

The Road to Publication

Greatlander received favorable responses on the Faith article I wrote last month; so my nephew again graciously requested I write another article for July’s issue.  I had more confidence this time, and approached their July’s theme, the Road Less Traveled, with thoughtfulness and research rather than a blank mind and fear of failure.  I really …

The Road Less Travelled

The phrase ‘The Road Less Travelled’ originated back in 1916 through Robert Frost’s poem ‘The Road Not Taken,’ using part of the last stanza: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I – I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. There are two schools of thought for Frost’s …

More grace

JAMES 4:6-10                                                                           But He gives us more grace.  That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”  Submit yourselves, then, to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  Come near to God and He will come near to you.  Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify …

Step of faith

One of my nephews works for Anchorage Printing.  A few weeks ago, he asked me to write an article about Faith for  one of their publications.  As much as I say I like to write, I was brought up short.  Yes, I have been making several steps toward publishing my devotional ‘Breadbox for the Broken,‘ …

There is now no condemnation

ROMANS 8:1-5                                                                             Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.  For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did …

What is Faith?

What is faith? Webster defines it as ‘allegiance to duty or a person; firm belief in something for which there is no proof; complete trust, something that is believed especially with strong conviction.’ What do you have faith in?  We can have faith in ourselves, in our innate abilities, in family loyalty, in the education …
