In Loving Memory Of Todd

By Kay Heitsch on October 21, 2017 / 451 views

By Kay Heitsch on October 21, 2017 / 451 views

The following is a personal letter I wrote to Dr. Peale after Todd died. Dr. Peale published the letter in Plus The Magazine of Positive Thinking in 1990. He also used it as the introduction to his book, Have A Great Day-Every Day! Dear Dr. Peale, I became acquainted with your writing strictly by accident. If I had known you were a minister, I would not have touched your books with a...

First Day In Church

By Sarah on October 21, 2017 / 482 views

It was nearly time to go, and I had managed to work myself up into a state of high anxiety. I'd been to church before, but never for something that wasn't a baptism, wedding, or funeral, and definitely not to a church of this denomination. My boyfriend had asked me to go, and I wondered what it meant for our relationship. The service was scheduled at 8 am, and I had been up since 6 am...

Always Look Forward

By SL on October 21, 2017 / 966 views

I know it's a human thing to look back at the things in life that we sometimes, if not always regret. Whether it's doing drugs, to getting to know someone, to date someone, to be with someone, we all have regrets, we're not perfect. So many people look back at life, at their regrets, saying how they regret doing this, or talking to that person, or getting to know that girl/guy, I used to...

What's Love Got To Do With It?

If I decorate my house perfectly with matching pillows, perfect lighting and all the right colors, but do not show love, I'm just another decorator. If I slave away in the kitchen, making perfect meals with healthful ingredients, but do not show love, I'm just another cook. If I work at the soup kitchen, visit people in nursing homes and give all that I have to charity, but do not...

No Good Deed

By Joseph J. Mazzella on October 19, 2017 / 566 views

By Joseph J. Mazzella on October 19, 2017 / 566 views

Someone online sold my mailing address so now instead of just getting letters from the few charities I can afford to support, I am also getting letters from a dozen other charities asking for my help. One of my more cynical friends spouted the old adage, “No good deed ever goes unpunished.” I just smiled and didn’t argue knowing it wouldn’t change his mind. My own mind, however, was...

Is There Something We Can Do When We're Hurting?

By Kay Heitsch on October 19, 2017 / 560 views

By Kay Heitsch on October 19, 2017 / 560 views

Is there something we can do to help ourselves when we are hurting? From personal experience, I think there is. If we're feeling down and depressed I believe it works out best to turn on some good music, read some uplifting type books, exercise, and get out around people who are happy. In Heb 13:15 it talks about offering a "sacrifice of praise." Sometimes it really is a...

My husband Bill likes to buy toys that our grandson Eli who's 6 can put together. Some of these toys say that they're for a 6 year old, when in reality, they are not. One particular toy Bill bought was a real challenge. There were many tiny pieces that all needed to be taken apart to even start. Bill sat down at the table and got out his little knife and was cutting them as Eli tried to...

On The Day I Die

By John Pavlovitz on October 16, 2017 / 841 views

By John Pavlovitz on October 16, 2017 / 841 views

On the day I die a lot will happen. A lot will change. The world will be busy. On the day I die, all the important appointments I made will be left unattended. The many plans I had yet to complete will remain forever undone. The calendar that ruled so many of my days will now be irrelevant to me. All the material things I so chased and guarded...

"When we have the opportunity to make someone happy we should do it. The world needs more of this." ~ Quotes ~ On Wednesday I was at Planet Fitness when a girl came in wearing a great looking patriotic jacket. I admire it right away, but didn't say anything. Time passed and I noticed she was about to leave. I was talking to someone and said, "Hey there's that girl in that...

The Message

By Rick on October 14, 2017 / 1,623 views

By Rick on October 14, 2017 / 1,623 views

I want to share a message I got. Everything is perfect! I didn't believe everything is perfect and actually it doesn't make much sense, as many would agree, looking around at our imperfect world. I got the message while trying to stop something I thought was wrong. It was a silly thing. Fifteen older men wanted to oppose fifteen inexperienced and ill equipped small boys in a game of...

By Katie Lee on October 13, 2017 / 583 views

By Katie Lee on October 13, 2017 / 583 views

Two miles back down the road I smelled the freshly brewed coffee. The drive-through window lady always knew to put in three extra sugars and four creams. I could almost taste the hot buttered biscuits, as I pulled into the lot. I wondered why it was not packed. Well, it was Monday morning. I also reasoned that the sky was cloudy. It was still early. So, I waited. In the wait, I maximized the moments...

Wise people are very few, if we put a habit of hearing then wise people from our home to the outside world will find everywhere. The elderly are the most intelligent, they have expertise and their experience is very useful but it is very sad we don't appreciate our elderly. We ignore them who are the most valuable that is why we learn by being cheated, if we listen to our elderly wise people how much we...

By Kay Heitsch on October 11, 2017 / 455 views

"I don't understand, Lord! How could this be a part of Your plan for our lives?" Over and over again, these words whirled around in my mind as I drove home from work that afternoon. I couldn't believe that we were going to be moving again. "Don't you care about us, Lord?" Tears burned my eyes as they rolled down my cheeks. Down the road I could see a long line of...
