• Wonder

    By: Nancy Buckley

    There is faint music in the night,
    And pale wings fanned by silver flight;
    A frosty hill with tender glow
    Of countless stars that shine on snow.

    A shelter from the winter storm,
    A straw-lined manger, safe and warm,
    And Mary crooning lullabies,
    To hush her Baby’s sleepy sighs.

    Her eyes are rapt upon His Face,
    Unheeded here is time and space;
    Her heart filled with blinding joy,
    For God’s own Son a
    — her little Boy!

  • Three Blessings

        Modern psychology often confirms ancient wisdom. Much of the advice that has been empirically verified by the field of Positive Psychology echoes ancient philosophers, including the wisdom of the Bible.

    By Vivien Wade

    There’s always so much to be done,
    It makes me feel stressed and blue,
    Another lady sits alone and bored
    There’s not much for her to do.

    I don’t know what to cook for dinner,
    Am sick of chicken, pasta or rice.
    A homeless man rummages in a bin,
    Thinking a slice of bread would be nice.

    My teenager’s music is far too loud,
    It’s almost driving me crazy.
    Others are strung out on drugs,

  • Remarkable Bible Fact
  • Thanksgiving

        That the Pilgrims who came to America considered it right and proper to honor God with a feast of thanksgiving, despite losing nearly half of their numbers to disease and lack of proper shelter during their first year speaks volumes about their character.

  • Pray... with Thanksgiving

    By Dr. Ralph F. Wilson

        I’ve heard a lot of droopy prayers in my life. Hey, I’ve prayed a lot of them, too.

        Prayers of desperation — God, you’ve got to help me!
        Prayers of self-pity — God, things are so awful!
        Prayers of resignation — God, if you want to leave me unemployed, then I can’t stop you!
