Noisy Distractions

Earlier today, I heard something that I rarely do in today’s world of “smart” gadgets, technology and electronics.  I was in my living room with no gadgets running – no TV, phone, music, dishwasher…nothing – and all the sudden I realized how quiet the house was.  Then suddenly I heard my wall clock ticking and…

Lucky or Blessed?

With St. Patrick’s Day celebrations this month, I’ve been thinking lately about how people say they are lucky.

” But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: He is their strength in the time of trouble .” Psalm 37:39 For many people, the day that they accept Christ is a day that is more important than their birthday, more memorable than an anniversary. It is a day that marks the most important decision…
