Sewing and Reaping Eternal Rewards

When I was a young girl, I remember visiting my grandma who did most of her sewing on an old Singer pedal machine because it was what she grew up with. In her day electricity wasn’t afforded for every home, so it was the peddle machine or sewing by hand. It was pure entertainment for me to sit on the floor and help her by pushing the foot-pedal up and down as fast as my...

Wise Investments

The last thing I want to do with my money is play the stock market. I know that some people have made enormous sums of money investing in various companies. But many, many more individuals have taken a tremendous hit and lost their entire investment. Combining my poor understanding of economics with the fact that I don’t like taking risks, I’m afraid I'd end up as another statistic in the latter group.

Leaving the Nest

No parent, whether bird, animal, or human, wants its young to stay in the nest, den, or home, forever. It’s a natural part of becoming an adult to move out from our parents’ home to establish our own. Sometimes economic and health issues prevent our kids from “leaving the nest”, but that is the exception. Moses had observed that parent eagles often had to “stir the nest” to make it uncomfortable for their eaglets. They did it to encourage their young to enter “flight school”. Though the eaglet may misunderstand its parents’ actions, the removal of comfort is an act of...
