Seldom Do ‘Good Memories’ Come From Unrighteous Living

Print or EmailTheDiscipleMd A number of years ago I spent the day visiting, with a number of my siblings, our “childhood.” Our elementary school, old ball fields, the homes in which we lived.

The Spiritual Buzzards

Print or EmailTheDiscipleMD I came upon them unexpectedly as I rounded a turn in the road. They quickly flew into the air as my car sped by. I have seen them many times over my life! Buzzards!

Print or EmailTheDiscipleMD A number of years ago Bonnie D. Parkin said: “Our Heavenly Father loved us before we came to this earth. I know that He loves us…as does His Son, Jesus Christ.That love will never change—it is constant. You can rely on it. We can trust it… I know of a young mother […]
