NO MATTER WHO IS IN THE WHITE HOUSE

No matter who is in the White House, ADONAI REMAINS ON HIS THRONE. The King of Kings has not changed nor will He. Jesus Christ  is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). Our citizenship in the United States of America is secondary—not primary. Our first allegiance is to Father God, our Creator, our [...]

OUR CHRISTMAS ANGEL

HERITAGE: Purchased in 1943, this little angel decorated my parents’ first Christmas tree and every one thereafter for 57 years. Our Christmas angel was always placed on the very top of our tree—the crowning glory.  As the decades passed, she was lovingly repaired by Mom, and Dad re-wired her several times. Most recently, my sister-in-law [...]

8 WAYS TO LEAVE A HERITAGE OF HOPE

SAFETY: WHEN YOU BECOME VULNERABLE AND NEED ASSISTANCE? None of us want to be a burden, of course. Even so, we need to realize that we will lose discernment as we age.  My dad hired and fired his entire career, but he lost his ability to read people in his late 70’s. Sadly, there are [...]

ARE YOU ON MISSION?

Sadly, COVID 19 has afflicted some of us, but our nation’s response has impacted all of us. Schedules and activities, commerce and social interactions have all been radically altered. Thankfully, the Lord Jesus Christ remains the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. (Hebrews 13:8) How might we, like Jesus, remain faithful and constant? If you think [...]

DEAR VETS AND THOSE WHO LOVE THEM

Marine Hubert Self You make me proud. I used to be proud to be an American because the foundations of our nation were biblical and designed for the good of the people and the glory of God. The ideals of freedom and patriotism still stir me, but it is easy to find fault [...]

HAVE THE LAST WORD

Unlike Jesus, few of us know the time and place of our departure. It seems wise to prepare our last words, our equivalent to Jesus' upper room discourse, now. In Jerusalem, our Lord purposely gathered his disciples in the upper room. He knew it was his time, so (John 13:1) he loved them to the end– with [...]

A TIME TO HONOR (Brian C. Wilson’s story)

After hours at highway speeds, Camp Pendleton was far behind, some 900 miles behind.  Brian was pleased to drive the rental truck for his deployed son’s young family, but the grandkids were restless, and their mother was hoping to make Boise before dark.  Even stopped for gas, he was hustling internally. What is taking so [...]

2 WAYS TO START WRITING YOUR STORY

CHOOSE YOUR AUDIENCE: My friend, Allan Wilson, has chosen to write to his young grandson. Consequently, his story is a very personal one with affectionate references to the boy’s father. Allan’s narrative voice is the tender one of A LOVING GRANDFATHER. Accordingly, his childhood shenanigans are written about with humor, chagrin, and a gentle wisdom. [...]

CHRISTMAS PAST

My technically savvy father left me the precious gift of time travel—a DVD of family Christmas movies covering almost 30 years! For two hours we work our way forward from the late 1950’s in California to the mid 1980’s in Oregon. It is a joy to watch my brothers and me grow up around Christmas [...]
