Follow By Email

The "Follow By Email" option is now available on all four of my Google blogs. You have to scroll to the bottom of the first page on each blog to find it and subscribe.

If you subscribe, when I post to that blog you will receive an Email message with the link to the post. This eliminates the need to constantly check the blog to see if I am posting.  This will be particularly useful in the case of the Obituary blog which I infrequently update.

Honest self-appraisal is a daily necessity if we are to be restored to wholeness.
Vigilant appraisal of our thoughts and habits must become routine.

It's A Blessing

Do we not continually pass by blessings innumerable without notice, and instead fix our eyes on what we feel to be our trials and our losses, and think and talk about these until our whole horizon is filled with them, and we almost begin to think we have no blessings at all?

Getting To Know God

If you'd like to get to know God a little better, talk to Him more often.
The more often you speak to Him, the more often He'll speak to you.

Life is never static; 
it is constantly changing, and 
each change requires adjustment and growth.

Lord, thank You for miracles of every size:
Caterpillar to crysalis ... to butterfly;
Bulb to thrusting green spear ... to full-blown lily;
Child born into life ... [to functioning and successful adult].
