PRECIOUS MEMORIES OF LOVED ONES, NOW GONE…

By Anita Mondragon

On Memorial Day, we visited the graves of my in-laws and my parents. It was bitter-sweet…

I knew my daddy wasn’t there…only the remains of his mortal body were laid to rest beneath the cool dewy grass; and even though it’s been nearly twenty years…my wounds from his passing seemed fresh. Read more…


JESUS…THE HOPE OF THE WORLD!

By Anita Mondragon
 
Have you watched the news lately?  The world is at war.  Not only out-and-out war with one nation against another…but people in general are at war with their neighbors, friends, spouses, and family! Courts are full of divorce cases, domestic abuse, civil suites, assault, theft, rape, murder.  Fights springing up out of nowhere over petty things, ending up in murder.  Abuse of every kind-alcohol, drug, sexual, physical, verbal-all on the rise.  The world, and I’m talking about those that do not have the Hope of Jesus, is drenched in anger…rage.  They are living for the moment, casting up their dirt and mire, wallowing in self pleasures of today because they have no hope of a better tomorrow.

Even when I fail

By Lee Pierce ( The Gathering Church)
Have you ever felt like you let the Lord down? Done things you know would not please Him? Fail despite your best intentions to serve Him and be there for Him? I have to admit, that describes me way too often! I sometimes have the very best of intentions…then I blow it! Read more…


FOLLOW THE WHISPER!

By Anita Mondragon
Years ago, during one of my many rebellious times, while at work one day, I became momentarily distracted by something just outside my window.  As I watched, the cotton from a grove of Cotton Wood trees floated gently through the air.   You could faintly hear the quiet motion of the leaves rustling softly in the warm breeze.  It was a beautiful sight!  So calm and serene.

Are You Lost?

“In ALL your ways acknowledge HIM, and He will direct your paths.” -Proverbs 3:6

******************************************

Are you lost?  Only you can answer this question.

Some of you reading this, know that you are lost.  You don’t KNOW Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior.  You have not as yet asked Him into your heart and life. Read more…



Should We Rock The Boat?

Contend for the Faith

“Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.” Jude 1:3

******************************

What is the definition of contend?

One of the meanings of contend is from the French “to strive with,” and it is a literal fighting, as in “to contend with fists.”. Most contemporary uses of the verb contend illustrate competitions of proof or defense, where a person will contend that something is true, or better, or wrong. Read more…



…. LOVE, JESUS

By Anita Mondragon

As I read the following words this morning, I was reminded of a T-shirt I had long ago.  On it, was a parchment note, attached by three rusty nails.  It simply read:

“I’ve gone to see My Father.  We’re building you a beautiful house.  So get ready, because I’ll be back soon to get you!  Love, Jesus

Take a look….



God, IN you!

By Anita Mondragon

At times, we of the lower middle class look at those more financially fortunate than ourselves, and envy what they have.

We wish our house was larger, our car newer, our bank account more substantial.  Even Christians find themselves always wishing for more.  It is a malady of the human spirit.  We never seem to be satisfied!
