Small Acts

By Rosie Moore I read in my little “Upper Room” booklet these words by Dean T. Skoglund: “As I left the restaurant carrying my box of leftovers, I saw a person lying in my path. As I approached, I leaned over and asked, ‘Would you like something to eat?’  He responded, ‘Yes!’ As I set […]

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 […]

By Rosie Moore “We learn as much from sorrow as from joy, as much from illness as from health, from handicap as from advantage, and indeed perhaps more.” These words were spoken by Pearl Buck and is my Thought for the Day, today. I first read her book, “The Good Earth,” when I was in […]
