Invariable good!

I have been thinking today of the invariable good of God’s children.  We are held PERFECT, “His likeness still”*, just as He created us. Can you imagine there being a principle of mathematics if numbers varied in value from day to day? If, for example, we would wake up in the morning and have to […]

Harmony with neighbors restored

One morning the neighbor’s chickens came into my yard (AGAIN!!!) and were digging up my garden.  I had just HAD IT!  I was angry, disappointed, sad, frustrated at myself for letting it get to me, and at my wits end about what to do about those chickens.  My thought was not clear or uplifted. I needed […]
