  • LEARNING FROM SUFFERING

    BY MRS. CHARLES COWMAN

    In Streams in the Desert

    "If I am in distress, it is in the interests of your comfort, which is effective as it nerves you to endure the same sufferings as I suffered myself. Hence my hope for you is well-founded, since I know that as you share the sufferings you share the comfort also" (2 Cor. 1:6, 7).


    Are there not some in your circle to whom you natu...

  • Choosing Christmas

  • En guard, y’all! The trap of Christmas Crazy is set and waiting to spring. It’ll promise “more is more” but deliver “less and less.”

    I love Christmas! Flat out love it, hence my vulnerability to become trapped by the Christmas Crazies. Christmas Crazy jumps on me the first day I notice the seasonal home decor lining store shelves, and from there, the drum beat only gets louder. D...

  • Harvesting

  • Harvesting wildflower and wild grass seeds has been on my bucket list for a long time. When I finally trained to become a master naturalist two years ago, I figured my turn would come in the following summer’s end somewhere in the prairies of Minnesota…but we moved to Texas before I got the chance. Little did I know that within two years, I’d be gathering the seed heads and pods from my...

  • What Does Love Mean?

  • What Does Love Mean?   

    This devotional was written by Kelly McFadden   

     

    Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. —1 John 4:8-10

  • LAWN CARE

  • LAWN CARE 

    BY MRS. CHARLES COWMAN

    In Streams in the Desert

    "He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass" (Ps. 72:6).

    Amos speaks of the king's mowings. Our King has many scythes, and is perpetually mowing His lawns. The musical tinkle of the whetstone on the scythe portends the cutting down of myriads of green blades, daisies and other flowers. Beautiful as they were in the morning, within an hour ...

    "These were the potters, and those that dwelt among plants and hedges: there they dwelt with the king for his work" (1 Chron. 4:23).

    Anywhere and everywhere we may dwell "with the king for his work." We may be in a very unlikely and unfavorable place for this; it may be in a literal country life, with little enough to be seen of the "goings" of the King around us...
