The righteous care for the needs of their animals, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.  Proverbs 12:10 June Williams was only 4 when her father bought 7 acres of land to build a zoo without bars or cages.

Before the Phone

on January 28, 2020, 6:00 AM / in Religion

In my distress I called to the Lord.   Psalm 18:6 As a mom of young children I’m sometimes susceptible to panic. My first reaction is to call my mom on the phone and ask her what to do with my son’s allergy or my daughter’s sudden cough. Mom is a great resource, but when I read the Psalms, I’m reminded […]

on January 28, 2020, 6:00 AM / in Local News, News, Religion

Helping our city and county and state can only start on our knees. All our actions without prayer will make not much difference.  We must call upon our LORD and cry out in repentance to HIM about our city, county, state, and country.  There is much cover-up of sin in the church and out of the sin. Holy Ground meets […]

Read: Proverbs 6:6-11 Elephant seals spend most of their lives sleeping. Science News magazine reports, “Male elephant seals measure 16 feet from trunk-like nose to flipper, and they weigh about 3 tons. Occasionally, a seal will use a front flipper—incredibly tiny for such a massive creature—to scratch itself or flip sun-shielding sand on its body.” Otherwise these huge animals are […]

What Is It?

When the Israelites saw it, they said to each other, “What is it?”  Exodus 16:15 My mother taught Sunday school for decades.

The tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts.   James 3:5 My daughter has had a lot of ill health recently, and her husband has been wonderfully caring and supportive. “You have a real treasure there!” I said. “You didn’t think that when I first knew him,” she said with a grin. She was quite […]

By Dr. Jim Denison Brad Pitt could have been Neo. During an interview this week, the movie star was asked to name a movie role he turned down.

Start children off on the way they should go.  Proverbs 22:6 When my daughter described a problem she was having in the school lunchroom, I immediately wondered how I could fix the issue for her.
