Winter is always tough for me. I dislike being cold, obviously; it’s so much fuss to put on layers of clothes just to go to the mailbox or take Bailey outside. I try to keep myself busy of course. There’s always things to do, read, write, nap, watch movies (isn’t winter a great time to … More I fell into a deep depression…
My bible study group is reading The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer, originally published in 1948. Tozer’s style of writing is not what we are used to; his sentences have a different cadence than modern writers. Sentence structure is longer. The spiritual truths Tozer shares are deep. We have decided as we study this book to … More Mornings with A. W. Tozer part 1 #Fire #LindseyStirling
I didn’t think so. The reason for the lamp is to shine light on what is in the room and to see what you are doing. Isn’t that a cool looking lamp?!

“Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” – Psalm 90:12 The word “number” in that verse is translated “appoint” from the original Hebrew. That’s a much stronger meaning.
