  • Hoepfl fish fry- April 2012

    "Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work" ( II Thessalonians 2:16,17) After I wrote February "Happenings," I thought of another example of the Lord being with me when I needed Him. Throughout the seventies and eighties, I hosted monthly Dinner/ Canasta parties in our home. Fifty couples joined our club. Most of the p

  • Mother Teresa - New Years January 2012

    I keep running across a motivational "poem" by Mother Teresa in magazines. This little 4'8" woman died Sept. 5, 1996 at the age of 87. At age 36, traveling on a train from Macedonia to Darjeeling to recover from an illness, she heard Jesus telling her to give up all and follow Him to the slums to serve Him among the poorest of the poor, the lowest of the low, in the city of Calcutta in India. She surrendered to His call, "living" Matthew 25: 31-46: "When I, the Messiah, shall come in my glor

  • Blessings of Rain - February 2012

    "As for me, I look to the Lord for His help. I wait (confidently) for God to save me, and my God will (certainly) hear me." (Micah 7:7, TLB) Monday, January 30, at 4:30, I mailed my "Children's Writing Ministry" letters. It had rained most of the morning, but seemingly quit after noon. I thought, "I'd better go to the Dollar Tree and buy the children's valentines. Their letter must be my next project." Surely the Lord prompted me to do this, because there were a lot of vacant spaces in the Va

  • Christmas 2011

    "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life" I never thought of this Scripture from John 3:16 before as a perfect one for Christmas. We have gift giving on our minds. So does God. He gave us His only Son! In terms of our giving our own son away, we can barely imagine the uttermost supreme value of God's gift. By our acceptance of Jesus, we are further gifted with eternal life in God's heaven. How

  • Traumatic Experiences 4 - October 2011

    "Trust in he Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths" (Proverbs 3: 5,6) Whatever difficulties you may face in life, you can be assured that God loves you unconditionally and longs to have a personal love relationship with you through His Son, Jesus. You just might think, from reading my monthly "Happenings," that nothing "bad" ever happens to me. Yes, they do. I am thinking of four very traumatic
