“A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.” Proverbs 17:17 (KJV) Many of you have asked “the source” of inspiration for the weekly WordBytes.  Interestingly, many come as a result of simply observing life and the things that God calls to my attention.  This week I received an unexpected thank […]

Make Straight the Path

The voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the LORD; Make His paths straight.’    Mark 1:3 (KJV) My husband and I often argue over the accuracy and value of GPS systems.  It seems as though sometimes it takes you the longest and most convoluted way.  Such was the case this weekend […]

Preparing the Way

How will you celebrate Advent 2016?  What will you intentionally do differently to usher in the most phenomenal event to enter into the history of mankind—the incarnation of God?   Advent should be more than participating in special Bible studies or in the lighting of Advent candles.  I’m afraid to say that I was guilty of […]

Prayers of Invocation

“Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.” 1 Chronicles 16:11 (KJV) For my 2015 Advent reading I added several books that focused on worship litanies and prayers.

The Joy of Fellowship

Forget Not

Tomorrow will usher in a new year for each of us. With the New Year, we will exert new effort and commitment to those things which we feel will make us “healthy, wealthy, and wise.” Many of us will closeout 2014 singing “Auld Lang Syne” in remembrance of great times we have experienced this past […]
