Love shouldn’t hurt – ever

Make a Wave
by Teresia Smith

Have you ever had the chance to toss a pebble into a lake? As a child, it was fun to watch the ripples from that pebble toss. What if multiple people threw pebbles at the same time? Those ripples may combine and become bigger. Then the bigger ripples may join others and become a wave. “Everything we do, even the slightest thing we do, can have a ripple effect and repercussions that emanate. If you throw a pebble into the water on one side of the ocean, it can create a tidal wave on the other side.” Victor Webster.

What A Fellowship. . .
by Terrt Broome

These are the first words of an old hymn that we don’t sing so much anymore, but one which portrays the great joy a Christian can have when in a rightful relationship with the Lord. I remember them well from when I was a child singing to the top of my lungs:“What a fellowship, what a joy divine,

You may feel sad, angry, and even feel like giving up on your loved one and all those emotions are totally understandable. Instead of giving up, I urge you to educate yourself about the intricacies of domestic violence, how you can best respond, and what local services may be available to assist.

The Difference Between Looking and Really Seeing!
by Terry Broome

Have you ever found yourself staring at an object for a long time only to draw a blank when someone asks you what you’re looking at? Sometimes we look but fail to really see. There must be some spiritual application to this concept. Jesus used it in reference to those who are outside of relationship with Him. “That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them” (Mark 4:12; also see Matt 13:14-15). Certainly, in regard to the Gospel there are many who look directly at God’s Truths and fail to see the implications thereof.
