By Rosie Moore “When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed, When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost, Count your blessings, name them one by one, And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done!” I know, it’s hard to remember our blessings in these perilous times, even stop to count them, but […]

Thoughts for These Times

  By Rosie Moore It’s hard during these times to have pleasant thoughts when the world is in such a turmoil, so I went to my little “Daily Psalms and Prayers” book for some inspiration and this is what I found: “Oh, Lord, because I get tripped up so easily, please stay close beside me. […]

Good Books

By Rosie Moore I’m not crazy about gift cards at Christmastime. I like pretty wrapped gifts with pretty bows. However, I love gift cards from Barnes & Noble. I can go there and spurge and buy books from my favorite authors, e.g. James Patterson. I have a lot of his books and enjoyed them all. […]
