The One Inside

Written by Martin Angila I was almost despairing in life. I tried to push harder in prayer, working more, trying new ideas, seeking help from friends but all to no avail. Nothing worked. I thought to myself, “Well, I don’t think I will pull it through.” The final exam is just around the corner. If... Continue Reading →

Hanging in There

Written by Mary Foulger The last time that I saw my son alive, I told him to go to hell. Of course, that was never what I wanted him to do, but I was so frustrated with him. I felt like he expected so much of his father and me, his mother, but so little... Continue Reading →

Two are Better than One

"Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. 10 If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. 11 Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? 12 A person standing alone can be...

Morning Glories and Bindweeds

This is the time of year I begin to plan my vegetable garden. Soon will be planting season. For the last few years my garden has been taken over and choked out by morning glories.   Morning Glories - Weeds disguised as beautiful flowers.   They are hardy. They are tenacious. They are opportunistic. They... Continue Reading →

Faith Like a Child

"I cried unto the Lord with my voice, and He heard me out of His holy hill." (Psalm 3:4)   My 6-year-old had gotten into a predicament [she was okay, but she needed a little help]. She was on the other side of the house. She yelled for me to help her.   I couldn't... Continue Reading →
