The Question without an Answer

Last Sunday, I heard a sermon about Habakkuk’s questions and God’s answers. It captured my attention, because I had been thinking about questions similar to Habakkuk’s. O LORD, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear! even cry out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save! Why dost thou shew me…

God’s Word, Our Water

My cat, Miss Potter, has developed a funny habit. She likes to drink out of my water cup! A lot of the time, however, my cat can’t reach the water. She sticks her face in the top, reaching her tongue down as far as she can. If she can’t reach it then, she will attempt…

How to Love Your Enemies… Like a Cat

My dad and my cat really don’t get along. When Miss Potter found us, my dad really didn’t want to keep her, but he let us have her because he is such a good guy.  Anyway, they haven’t grown on each other at all in the eight years we have owned her, lol! She darts…

The Desk, Part II

Quite a while ago, I wrote about a secondhand desk I bought that I was going to fix up. Well, I finally finished! I am so happy with the end product after the meticulous work, and so thankful to my parents, especially my dad, for all their help and guidance. Before After (Sorry for the quality 😕…
