I love being outside, but I’m definitely not the athletic type. Gardening is my outdoor “sport” – a nice quiet form of exercise and relaxation that has helped provide food for us over the years while getting me outside to enjoy the sunshine. My very first garden was a whopper. I tried growing just about everything I could find in the Burpee’s seed catalog. I learned as I went, with […]Read More →

(And if you want to order one of these you need […]Read More →
Why Good Friday Isn’t Black
I’ve talked to more than one person over the past few days that accidentally referred to Good Friday as Black Friday. We chuckled, and at the same time wondered why Good Friday is good instead of black, and why Black Friday is black instead of good. On this Saturday, wedged between Good Friday and Resurrection Day, I want to share this wonderful post, “WHY WE CALL THE WORST FRIDAY ‘GOOD.’” In […]Read More →

Perhaps it has to do with writing posts after everyone else has gone to bed, when I ought to be doing the same thing, but I seem to be making more than my average share of mistakes during our study of James! Just to clarify, the giveaway ends on Monday, December 10, not in September as the post originally said. I think I’ll go take a nap…Read More →

Revision of Day 32!
If you have not completed Day 32 yet, please note this revision! When you start looking at “Speaking” in Nave’s Topical Bible, only look at the verses from Proverbs in the section labeled “Speaking: Evil,” not the entire section on Speaking! I mentioned that detail in the instructions for app users, but missed it in the general directions. I have edited the lesson, but the email you received will still have that […]Read More →
