He Was a Fake! Conquering Fear Part 4

You are reading Part Four of the mini-series subtitled “Conquering Fear.”

“Did trains even go down this far?” I wondered, highly doubting it. Wondering if the man was even a porter at all, despite Hubby’s assurances that all those Red Cap guys were there to help with baggage. “You thought he wanted to steal your bags??” he’d asked in amazement. “You should have let him take them. So on your return trip accept the help! And be sure to give a tip!”

Unlocked Doors in the Bronx? Conquering Fear Part 2

You are reading Part Two of the mini-series subtitled “Conquering Fear.”

Upon our move to the Bronx, having a fenced yard with a German Shepherd watchdog went a long way toward making me feel safer. So much so that I thought, “This Big Apple will be a piece of cake. I can handle it!”

You are reading Part One of the mini-series subtitled “Conquering Fear.”

The Lord led us to move from Colorado to the Bronx one year before coming to Italy. We really didn’t know why, just that it was right. Only later did we see that move was but the first step in a long series of the Lord’s leading.

God’s Love in a Kitten, Part 2

God often works and shows his love in mysterious ways. So mysterious or unusual that it can seem like mere chance or circumstance. In fact Scripture states, “Oh the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past tracing out.” (Romans 11:33 WEB)

The Good of Change

Change is often unexpected and unwanted, and comes when we least expect it. Which I think we’ve all come to see through the Covid pandemic. None of us could have expected it or the changes it’s brought to our lives and world.
