Sunday Verses

Devotional on Not Giving Up
Happy Sunday! I recently remembered or was reciting a poem I have known since childhood: "When life goes wrong as it sometimes will, and the road you are trudging seems all uphill..." If you don't know it, the poem goes on to basically say, stuff happens to all of us and when it does it's okay to rest, but never quit. I wasn't having a particularly bad day when I recalled this poem, but its message is good every day, for all of us. The Bible tells us the same thing. Jesus knows things are going to happen, we are going to have bad days, weeks, months. We experience real affliction and trouble--some it self-induced and some not. Sometimes we fall apart, physically and/or mentally. But, through it all, God renews us. His grace tells us to not give up, to never quit. Rest in him and his grace, but keep on keeping on, keep striving and fighting for better things, and never give up.

Easy Fall Signs on Old Records

Records? Remember these? Oh, how I loved my record albums. Some of my first albums  that I remember listening to were Mary Poppins and Pebbles and Bam-Bam's Good Ship Lollipop album. Later came The Partridge Family, Helen Reddy and Carly Simon.

While albums have made a resurgence, some old records are too far gone to be used for their original purpose.

When I recently "refound" some old albums in my junk stash, I knew they would be perfect simple signs.
