In Praise of Plans

“Your regulations remain true to this day, for everything serves your plans.”‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119:91‬ ‭ Plans are good. I’m hatching one now, in fact.

Never Stop

“Never stop praying.”‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:17‬ ‭ I love being out in my garden. I love it all – the watering. The planting. The trimming. The pride in producing high quality food, or beautiful blossoms. Even the weeding. (Odd, I know.) But as much as I love gardening, there is a limit. I mean, a gal’sContinue reading “Never Stop”

You Do Not Know Where That Tongue Has Been

“They sharpen their tongues like swords and aim their bitter words like arrows.”‭‭Psalms‬ ‭64:3‬ ‭ We have been learning about lines in Art.

I found a cool activity online where you introduce vertical, horizontal, and diagonal lines using a toyContinue reading “You Do Not Know Where That Tongue Has Been”

Let It Go

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up.
