Awhile back, I visited a town known for its mineral water. While I was there, the water being served was, of course, the mineral water from the mineral wells of that town. At first, that water tasted really weird to me. I wanted the regular water that I was accustomed to! But then, as my… Continue reading Craving the Right Things
There is wisdom and understanding.
Sometimes as humans, we live under the impression that it's our lot to go through this life without understanding. We think that we just won't be able to understand certain things. Yet the Bible talks so highly of wisdom and understanding! These virtues are treasures which add more value to life than thousands of dollars.… Continue reading There is wisdom and understanding.
His Creative Ways of Answering Prayers!
I had quite the traveling experience recently. My initial flight kept getting delayed, but eventually we finally lifted off. There had been a little time in between the initial flight and connecting flight, so I hoped that buffer would be enough, though there had been a delay.

The Open Bible
I sat at my kitchen table and opened my Bible to search for a specific passage. That was months ago. That same Bible has remained open on the kitchen table ever since. I remember hearing about families from decades ago who would have a Bible sitting on their coffee table, in full sight (in fact,… Continue reading The Open Bible
