A Holding Pattern

Posted by Liz on September 22, 2015 in Faith, Interest, Thoughts, Words |

Found on the Internet: A Holding Pattern Many times God will allow a painful situation or a painful circumstance in our life to “swallow us up.” This season in our spiritual growth is a holding pattern. We can’t move to the left or the right. All we can do is sit, like Jonah sat in […]

Thanksgiving – The Pilgrims

Posted by Liz on November 27, 2014 in Faith, Fall, History, Holiday, National, November |

Harvest festival observed by the Pilgrims at Plymouth   The First Thanksgiving 1621, oil on canvas by Jean Leon Gerome Ferris (1899). The painting shows common misconceptions about the event that persist to modern times: Pilgrims did not wear such outfits, and the Wampanoag are dressed in the style of Native Americans from the Great […]

Wet Pants

From the Internet, author unknown   Come with me to a third grade classroom….. There is a nine-year-old kid sitting at his desk and all of a sudden, there is a puddle between his feet and the front of his pants are wet. He thinks his heart is going to stop because he cannot possibly […]

Fireman’s Prayer   Give me the strength to save some life, Whatever be its age. Help me embrace a little child, Before it is too late; Or save an older person from, The horror of that fate. Enable me to be alert, And hear the weakest shout, And quickly and efficiently, To put the fire […]

Hymns Wanted

Posted by Liz on March 4, 2014 in Collected Works, Faith, History, Interest, Thoughts, Words |

What happened to Hymnals? I’m looking for a church that uses hymnals when they worship. You know, the books of a certain familiar size that contain music notated at one song a page, real music with bars and notes and 4 parts (soprano, alto, tenor, bass). It doesn’t matter that there are not enough hymnals […]

Memorial Day

Posted by Liz on May 25, 2013 in Collected Works, Faith, History, Holiday, Interest, National, Thoughts, Words |

MEMORIAL DAY . . . It is the VETERAN, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion. It is the VETERAN, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press. It is the VETERAN, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the VETERAN, not the campus […]
