Sorrows of Iniquity

Week 17 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.  2 Timothy 2:19 I read this word, iniquity, a few days ago in my Bible and it...

Power in Simplicity

Week 16 But, how? I love the word “simplicity” and almost every aspect of it. There is one meaning that is nearly obscure today. The Noah Webster Dictionary of 1828 records that simplicity can refer to weakness of intellect; silliness. It is not entirely obscure...

Prosperity the Counterpart

Week 15.   Last week, I wrote about adversity, a counterpart to prosperity. The wisdom of God teaches distinctions but also inevitability of both. We tend to think of adversity and prosperity as opposites and not counterparts. Husbands and wives.  Day and...

Adversity Not a Curse

Week 14 In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.  Ecclesiastes 7:14 While teaching this week about the joy the Apostle Paul...

Tea Trivia not so Trivial

POSITIVITY for the Journey

Week 11 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?  Romans 8:31 48 hours before traveling, I drove an hour north of where I live in Central Florida to get a very particular type of covid test that would be accepted for...

Indian Pork Curry

Also known as Pork Masala My daughters and I are asked for this recipe often. To commemorate this return to India – and this trip deserves special notice – I decided to post this recipe just as I have shared it with my daughters. Depending on the cut of...

Mighty – International Women’s Day

But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 1 Corinthians 1:27 WEEK 10 This is the verse that first came to my mind. As I reminded myself of...

Femininity and Crumpets

Week 9 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.  Genesis 2:18 Femininity: Distinctly unmasculine. My simple definition would be an insulting description to many women today, but it should not be....
