Clay Balls
A man was exploring caves by the seashore.  In one of the caves he found a canvas bag with a bunch of hardened clay balls.  It was like someone had rolled clay balls and left them out in the sun to bake.  They didn't look like much, but they intrigued the man, so he took the bagout of the cave with him.  As he strolled along the beach, he would throw...

Some Good Advice
 
Nada de turbe,
Nada te espente,
Todo se pasa,
Dios no se muda,
La patience
Todo lo alcanza;
Quien a Dios tiene
Nada le falta:
Solo Dios basta.
 
Let nothing disturb thee;
Let nothing dismay thee:
All things pass;
God never changes.
Patience attains
All that it strives for.
He who has God
Finds he lacks nothing:
God alone suffices.

Judas: Traitor or Servant? 
Have you seen the news over the last few months about the found "Gospel of Judas?"  It's interesting and controversial to say the least.  I read that the book says that Judas was only following Jesus' wishes when he betrayed Him.  Judas was used and now his name is as Jezebel; no one names their children after these two. 
 
I don't really think Judas was used or as...

I seem to recall having heard of a man who had learned some important lessons from his dog.  It occurred to me that I’ve learned an important spiritual lesson from my 10-year-old miniature schnauzer, “Butch Cassidy.” The Bible refers to “the tormenters,”  and Butch Cassidy’s definition of “tormenters”  includes (1) veterinarians and their assistants, who poke him with needles; and (2) dog groomers, who put him in a...

The Bride
 
When I was in Ghana, West Africa a couple of years ago we visited an old castle.  It was a place of slave trade back in the 1700's.  People were captured  or bought and kept in cells until a ship came to carry them to other countries to be sold into slavery.  They were treated as animals, not allowed to bathe and not fed well.  There was a passage way from...

Been There?
It's been a couple of weeks since I sat down to write.  I participated in a Ladies Conference we had here in Springtown and I spent a lot of time preparing for that.  I'm not a speaker but they wanted women who had 'been there' to speak on different topics.  I spoke on depression, loss, and what to do to help yourself and others having a difficult time.  I can...

I was surfing the web for information this morning and came across this site.  'L.Ray Smith - Exposing Those Who Contradict,' http://bible-truths.com.  I am always amazed at the 'Biblical teachings' of some.  I believe there is a Hell and that there is also a Heaven.  I believe that we will either go to reward after this life or to eternal punishment.  This guy does not believe in Hell. ...
