Dear Friends, Let’s take a trip.  We are going from the west to the east by way of the Milky Way.  It will be a long trip, but it will not take us long.  We will be landing on a beach in the Orient. The reason we are going via the Milky Way is to gain some knowledge of God.  It says in Daniel 11:32, the people who know their God shall be strong and do great things.

Dear Friends, I would like you to meet Matilda.  Though her life is fictitious, it is a compilation of women’s stories, some who have been on AWST radio program, others who have called for prayer and counseling.  I took Matilda with me as a visual aid for a retreat titled “Extreme Make Over”.  She stands 3’4”, has spindly legs, a pink taffeta skirt with a ruffle over a printed lace slip.  Her jacket is light gray with darker gray roses, trimmed with lace around the wrists and down the front.  Her pink high-heels are adorned with green b

Dear Friends, Mary (not her real name) is one of the most dedicated Christians I know.  She is a lady who makes a practice of “rejoicing always”.  She has had plenty of experiences that are not easy to rejoice in, but her firm belief in Christ and the belief that “all things work together for good,” has enabled her to comfort others by the comfort that has been given her. Mary found herself in a mess after being deceived by a scam.  A couple of men in a foreign country, hacked into her email.

Dear Friends, I love animals – wild animals- moose, bears (from a distance), deer (as long as they don’t eat my plants), and birds to name a few. I have many bird stories. A friend once told me that she thought God spoke to me through birds and I imagined one day being asked, “How does God speak to you?” to which I would reply, “Through birds.”- No doubt this prompt a response such as, “Uh-oh, this lady is nuts,” as they envisioned a bird flying down, staring me in the face, and moving over to my ear to say, “Here the word of the Lord .

Dear Friends, the following is a snippet from a novel based on a true story. Before Justin was two years old, their second son Jonathan was born; within a few months they moved from Crailsheim, Germany to Goppingen. Jonathan was very sick – he’d had pneumonia twice in his first year of life, and so many ear infections and bouts of tonsillitis that you couldn’t keep count. He was very frail. Colleen spent her time day and night walking the floor with a crying baby, up and down three flights of stairs to wash the clothes and back and forth to the doctors.

Dear Friends, The content of this newsletter comes from something I had written in 1981. As I discovered it in my files it spoke to me and I pray it will to you also. In Daniel 11:32 we learn that the people who know their God will display strength and take action. Yet when a problem or crisis arises, we often find ourselves sapped of strength and reduced to inactivity. Knowledge of God will have an amazing effect upon our lives and actions. The Bible tells us to “be careful for nothing.

Dear Friends, A few more Devotions on the Go, remember to listen to the guitar strums between stories. ~~~BIG HORN SHEEP~~~ There is nothing quite as thrilling to me as a rare sighting of wild animals. My husband and I were up Big Sheep Creek in Montana doing some fishing when we saw a large group of animals that looked slightly different than deer. Grabbing our binoculars we were delighted to discover 20 to 30 Big Horn Sheep. The sheep had been hunted out of that area and had just recently been reintroduced to the Big Sheep Creek area by management authorities.

Dear Friends, I am working on the third CD for the Devotions on the Go series. From the response I have received, the stories are blessing people and that blesses me. My original art work is featured on each CD cover - a landscape in blues and greens with a stream on the first CD, a blue heron on the second, and a landscape with purple mountains, green grass and yellow flowers on the third. ~~~# 1 of Set 1~~~THE DUCK WHO THOUGHT HE WAS A CHICKEN~~~ One summer when I was young, my family raised chickens. We also had one duckling. I believe we had won him at a carnival.
