Happy New Year!

If your fiancĂ© sent you a letter, would you read it? Only once, or would it be a couple times? God has given us His love letter–The Bible. Have you ever read the entire book cover to cover? What a better way for anyone to start out the New Year resolution list with reading through the Bible. This past year Priscilla and I have done just that and it has been one of the sweetest times of fellowship together and with the Lord. There is no better investment than to take time in the eternal Word of God. If there is anything I could encourage a new believer to do it is to get in the book....

A White Christmas!

Our Christmas was filled with lots of fun and celebration. Definitely our highlight was the time we spent with family. Driving up into the blistering cold North where the Waller Family Farm is located, we enjoyed five days of fun family fellowship in the cool weather. For Priscilla, this was her first White Christmas! What a brave girl she is. She has been so faithful to walk every day rain or shine to keep herself in good shape for when the baby comes. On Christmas Eve morning Priscilla encouraged me to come along with her on her usual walk. We did not check the temperature until we got...

An active definition of gratefulness is Letting God and others know in what ways they have benefited my life. Give the Gift of an Expression of Gratefulness Scripture records the account of Jesus healing ten people that were diagnosed with the cruel disease and impending death of leprosy. When any...

Praise is multiplied by the number of people who hear it. It is one thing to thank a person privately and tell how their character benefited our lives, but a whole different thing to tell about the character they demonstrated to their boss or a crowd of hundreds people. Give a Good Report to Others As of Thursday evening, the picture had generated more than 417,000 likes, had been shared more than 138,000 times and had received more than 30,000 comments. It was all to tell of a simple act of kindness which highlighted the character of a police officer in New York. Do people do acts of...

3 Days til Christmas ~ Blessing

The Bible says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Each one of us have the power, as it were, to give venomous words that can poison the lives of so many people. However, we also have the ability to bless others with our words. Give a Verbal Blessing The Hebrew word used in the Bible for blessing has the picture of to kneel as if a camel receiving it’s load. There are some beautiful analogies that can be drawn from that such as humbling yourself to acknowledge that you need a blessing, being bestowed or laden with the good things, and then being a bearer and...
