Christmas Eve (by D.A. Cobb)

This December my favorite radio station is broadcasting only Christmas music for the entire month. I have been listening to seasonal hymns, hand-bells, special holiday carols, inspirational orchestras and church choirs, singing chipmunks along with country pop sprinkled with rock and roll and soft jazz. This is an exciting time of year and the music … Continue reading

Christmas Tree (by D.A. Cobb)

Not far from my home is an old farm market. During the spring it is stocked with colorful garden flowers and potted plants, in the summer with fresh and delicious produce and beginning in December with live trees, wreaths and garlands. That’s right! Live Christmas trees in a world full of artificial everything. This past … Continue reading

Winter Storm Warning (by Becky Rommel)

Good Morning!! The WINTER STORM they talked about sure came. Its not like we weren’t WARNED ahead of time. Things sure did DETERIORATE FAST. Were you PREPARED? God has WARNED us about the EVENTS that will happen before HIS COMING. Are you PREPARED? Some of you are still ASLEEP, WAKE-UP and look around you. This … Continue reading

Christmas Letter (by D.A. Cobb)

Yesterday I finished writing my Christmas cards. Some people call this tradition a chore but I find it to be the perfect time for quiet reflection and the whispered renewal of memories. Warm feelings flow as I address and sign these personal greetings, especially to family members and loved ones. Some are forwarded to far … Continue reading

Santa and Inner Beauty (by Becky Rommel)

Good morning!! My favorite sign I have in my kitchen reads “No one cares that Santa’s over weight.” What’s up with that? Santa’s FAT and we call him JOLLY, but when I am FAT they call me UNDESIRABLE. Santa’s even got GREY HAIR and WEARS an OUTFIT I wouldn’t be SEEN IN. But we still … Continue reading

Reward (by D.A. Cobb)

When I retired I didn’t receive the proverbial gold watch. As a matter of fact I didn’t even receive the standard fishing rod. But after forty years of service I was presented with a beautiful brass clock that sits proudly on the desk in my study. I look at it daily as I compose these … Continue reading

Moving Again (by Becky Rommel)

Good Morning!! My sister’s friend Julie is a REALTOR. What a JOB to have in this 21 CENTURY!! I’m sure God’s thinking is the same. I see all the HOME IMPROVEMENTS I need to make in my life before my CLOSING DATE comes. Looking at my INSPECTION I have failed miserably in every way. My … Continue reading

Thankfulness (by Becky Rommel)

Good Morning!! Christmas is the time for giving. Giving to others like the Christ Child gave to us. But I have found a profound truth to the meaning of giving. It is impossible to give when we are not thankful. The enemy of this world wants nothing more then to twist the truth in our … Continue reading

Frame (by D.A. Cobb)

After all these years I finally purchased a frame for my college diploma. Its border is made of mahogany, has a gold band around the edges and at the bottom the university’s name is written in bold script. It hangs proudly in my study and reminds me of long ago times and past accomplishments. I … Continue reading
