Several years ago, my late husband and I worked among the nameless homeless in Boston. Like so many other homeless individuals all around our country, they were merely faces in a crowd, a nuisance to be avoided, or simply another panhandler asking for money. One gentleman in particular, sprawled against a building in a self-induced alcohol coma became a fixture for me and the other passe…

Is anyone else experiencing errors?

I realize that some more major changes have been made on here and I also realize it will take RB a while to straighten it out like before. But right now I’m finding that I can’t reply again, I get an error message, is anyone else experiencing the same thing???
Also, when I delete, it doesn’t show up but it did eventually work.
So, once again, if you don’t hear from me you will understand that I am unable but will catch up as soon as this is fixed.

6 Universal Signs of a Healthy Relationship

Leo Tolstoy opened his famous story Anna Karenina with one of the most quoted lines in literature: Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.

Let’s think a little about that. Is it…

It’s Okay to Call for Backup by Holly Gerth

The bible tells us that pride will destroy us. Jesus taught us about humility. When we can humble ourselves and ask others for advice or help will not only bless us, but others as well, this after all is God’s economy for blessing us all!!! Don’t hesitate to ask for help for anything, it doesn’t make you weak, it makes you smart! I hope this blesses you today. Viv

I recently picked up my phone in the middle of a wild week to text a friend about a lie that my heart kept hearing. Then I simply asked, “What’s the truth? I can’t come up with it right now.”

She wrote back and told me what I already knew deep inside but couldn’t quite recall in…

No replies

I understand that some people such as myself have no option to reply on comments to their works. This is a big part of the fellowship on this site and without it, it’s like being cut off from everyone.
This is going on day 2 of not being able to reply to all your wonderful comments and I’m not sure if I’ll be able to catch up so please forgive me and just know that I appreciate all your comments and will reply as soon as this is fixed.

What Can Free Us From Insecurity-Holley Gerth

This inspirational brings out something I think we all experience…insecurity. The best way to get over that is to take our eyes off of ourselves and put them on the Lord. He promises to bring us through every trial and storm, if we only just believe! I hope this blesses you today! Viv

What Can Free Us From Insecurity?
Holley Gerth

I wake to a tap-tap against glass, stumble bleary-eyed into the kitchen and ask my husband, “What’s that sound?”

He gestures to the small pane above our front door and says, “Robin.”

Sure enough, one of the lovely red-bellied birds that arrive in our area this time of year is pacing back and forth on a ledge, pecking relentlessly.

“This is crazy behavior,” I say to…

When You’re Afraid of Messing Up God’s Will by Holley Gerth

Being a Christian doesn’t mean being perfect. We all must step out of our comfort zone in order to learn new things and that might mean failing at some of them. That is not a sin!
Life is for living, and failure means growth and growth is exactly what God wants for His children. Don’t let the enemy keep you at a stand still. Take a deep breath, and put your right foot out and then keep stepping forward! I hope this blesses you today! Viv


When You’re Afraid of Messing Up God’s Will
Holley Gerth

Perfectionism is the great paralyzer. It tells us that we shouldn’t take a step, make a decision, or try anything new because it might not be just right. The basis of this for many believers is wha…

God Won’t Hurry Our Hearts by Holley Gerth

I don’t know about you but I am so thankful that our Lord does not tell us to hurry and grow up. Some of us seem to take longer than others but God is patient with each and every one of us. I hope this blesses you today! Viv

God Won’t Hurry Our Hearts
Holley Gerth

I stare out the window into the backyard. From my breakfast table I can see a robin fluffing out her feathers. The trees reach up to the sky with new leaves that wave good morning. A chubby squirrel gathers a few acorns to save for later. As I look, I realize the pace beyond my windows is so different than the one within them. We, as humans, are tempted to hurry. And yet it seems God is intent on slowing us down.

He gives us a Sabbath …
