I'm not a doctor, nurse, EMT, CNA, scientist, medical professional, etc., etc. (little disclaimer here) BUT I do believe COVID is very serious, especially for those of us who have those health issues called "comorbidities." (Even the term sounds ominous.) Some of us have little doubt if we catch COVID, we're probably goners. I don't … Continue reading Inflated Data
The weather in the Midwest is just like it is in much of the rest of the country - frigid and snowy! That even tends to be an understatement. So with the COVID restrictions and guidelines that force us to stay inside, I guess we should be use to it by now? Nah, not so … Continue reading Waiting In Faith
I knew a man who was brought up in a time when people in the rural areas hunted, trapped, and fished to put meat on the table. And along with that pelts were sold that brought in extra money as well.

I will be the first to admit I get caught up in things political. Probably too much so. While I believe we as believers have a responsibility to engage in the politics of our country, we have a greater responsibility to further the Gospel of Jesus as citizens of His Kingdom. A devotion from Worthy … Continue reading One At A Time
The sun shining on the trees covered with ice makes them look like the branches are made of glass. The picture doesn't do it justice, but the ice reflects the sun and sparkles with points of light all over it. I considered a couple of things as I watched this tree out our patio door. … Continue reading Ice Lessons
Comorbidity. It’s a word that sounds… uncomfortable!

We have been … Continue reading Comorbidity
In 1861 Julia Ward Howe, wife of a government official, wrote a poem for Atlantic Monthly for five dollars. The magazine called it, Battle Hymn of the Republic. The music may be by William Steffe. Mine eyes have seen the glory Of the coming of the Lord; He is trampling out the vintage Where the … Continue reading His Day IS Coming!
From Tony Perkins, Family Research Council: This country has seen some dark days. There have been moments of unbelievable despair, like we witnessed at the Capitol, when everything seems to come apart at the seams. Those are the hours when the hopelessness we see looks nothing like the nation we thought we knew. Yet, in … Continue reading Heaven is NOT Shaken
