11 Then he said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. Behold, they say, ‘Our bones are dried up, and our hope is lost; we are indeed cut off.’ 12 Therefore prophesy, and say to them, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I will open your graves and raise you from […]

Watching Church

by karenrehwaldt

I remember a while back I was putting a good shirt on just before we began streaming Sunday church on-line at my son’s house in Wausau, Wisconsin.   I told my wife I was getting dressed up for church and asked in jest if I should also put a tie on.   Rebecca, my daughter-in-law, spoke up […]

February is upon us.   We will soon celebrate Valentine’s Day.

This was a mechanized (they went to war in Bradley fighting vehicles) infantry unit and the standards for physical fitness were higher. As I trained up to meet […]
