Reading and Reflecting on Our Country’s Heritage

I love being a writer, a crafter of words, a communicator of thoughts and ideas; but long before I ever became a writer, I was a reader, one who pored over words on a page. I learned to read at an early age, mainly because of the example and the help of my mother who was (and still is) an avid reader. On sweltering summer days, my mother, my younger sister, and I, each carrying our load of treasured books,…

My Easter Prayer & Reflection

Once again we come to the time of the year when we celebrate and pay honor to our Father for sending his son to die for us. Easter is a time of remembrance, a time of emotion, a time of praise for the gift given to each and every one of us by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is also a fitting time for an Easter prayer. God sent his only son to walk on this earth to…

Christmas, Prophecy Fulfilled!

With Christmas season at its peak, I find it helpful to remind myself of why I am celebrating. If I don’t stop and do this I can easily get caught up in the world’s rush and forget the One who I need to be honoring!

Happy Thanksgiving 2020 from Christian Activities!

Thanksgiving 2020: How can we be thankful with COVID-19, an unresolved Presidential election, business closures, mask mandates, and social distancing? Thanksgiving 2020 is perhaps the most unusual Thanksgiving we have had since November 2001 following 9/11. Back then we were all shell-shocked by the horror of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon as well as United Airlines Flight 93 which crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Not since then has our country faced such upheaval as we…

Proverbs 31: A Wife of Noble Character

Who Can Find a Wife of Noble Character? It is not easy to find a virtuous woman in these modern feminist times. Proverbs 31 is from the sayings of King Lemuel, king of Massa and considered an oracle. These verses form an acrostic–each verse beginning with a successive letter of the Hebrew alphabet. The formatting of the verses into a poetic style lend some weight as to how important the qualities of a virtuous woman are. 10. A wife of noble…

A Father’s Hope, Poem

A poem by a dad from our 2011 archives I hope when you come home, and the church bells start ringing,You’ll remember the years and the days you had here.That this house will engulf you, with lavender breezeswhen the Lilacs have bloomed and their essence appeases.I hope when you come home, and the church bells start ringing,that comfort surrounds you like a mother’s embrace.That this house was a home and a castle of graceAnd your soul was caressed by the…

Thanksgiving History

What is the history of Thanksgiving Day? In December of 1620, a small group of colonists from England landed near Plymouth, Massachusetts, and built a settlement there. The first winter was filled with storms, deprivations, and disease, which took nearly half the colonists’ lives. However, hope was renewed the next year when the harvest proved to be bountiful. Governor William Bradford decreed that December 13 of that year be set aside as a day of feasting and prayer, a day…

Thanksgiving Thoughts

Thanksgiving is a great time to pause and consider… If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week. If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation, you are ahead of 500 million people in the world. If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death,…
