Perfect Unconditional Love – February 14 Valentine’s Day Inspiration

Perfect Unconditional Love – February 14 Valentine’s Day Inspiration

Perfect, unconditional love. Probably everybody’s dream, but not humanly possible. Some people accomplish accepting and loving people better than others do, with little judgment or criticism, but it’s human nature to place some conditions on each other. Then our feelings usually interfere with overlooking the faults or shortcomings, so we’re unable to truly love perfectly and unconditionally.

Sacrifice of Praise and Pure Religion – July 10 Devotions

Sacrifice of Praise and Pure Religion – July 10 Devotions

OK, I take it back (what I said yesterday about the mild weather) – today it’s humid, closing in on 80 and may even hit 90 over the next few days! More seasonal weather, really, for July.     It’s so important to enjoy every day, regardless of the weather, because you never know what will transpire that day.

I grew up in New Hampshire, only about 45 minutes or so from Loudon, the location of New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Of course, way back in those days, it was known as Bryar Motorsports Park, and the Bryar family attended our church. I even had a crush on Mr. Bryar’s  son who was his namesake, but I was not a race fan at that time.     THEN, in 2002, as a divorced middle-aged woman, I met David Banks through…

Welcome to Words of Encouragement

Welcome to Words of Encouragement

Welcome to the unveiling of my newly revised blog, under “new management” so to speak – new name, new purpose. You’ll find this on my “About” page, as well, but it seemed appropriate as my first NEW post: I decided to revise this, my very first blog, and dedicate it to my beloved Dad, Ben Willis, who lost his battle with lymphoma on Sept. 2, 2002. He was a giant of a man, loved by all who knew him, and…
