• Glory to God

    I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth.   1 Corinthians 3:6-7          Last week I wrote about my excitement for some of our upcoming events (gospel to every home, outside service, and VBS).  I thought our first night of taking the gospel to every home was going to get rained out and the rain st…

  • Godly Women

    Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.  Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.  Proverbs 31:30-31                              This Sunday is Mother’s Day.  I am blessed to have a godly mother.  My mother has been a Sunday School Teacher for as long as I can remember.  Mom was a school teacher for 35+ ye…
