God’s Judgments

The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.  More to be desired are they than gold, Yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them Your servant is warned, And in keeping them there is great reward - Psalm 19:9-11 Most times when we hear of judgments we imagine negative outcomes but we are told that God's judgments are …

Abebi’s Dream

My name is Abebi and I'm from Bauchi, Nigeria.  I love school.  I love learning new things.  I want to become a teacher because we need more female teachers here in our schools.  More female teachers will encourage girls to remain in school.  I think girls will relate better to female teachers and feel more …

On Thin Ice

Mom On Her Soapbox

“Mom, what’s a paradox?” “It’s a self-contradictory statement.  An example is all men are treated equal.” “It’s all men are created equal and how’s that a paradox?” “The Declaration of Independence states, 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are treated equal.'  That’s contradictory.” “Um, it’s all men are created equal.” “Well, …

The Dream

When I was a kid, I didn’t play much with my friends because I wasn’t any good at physical activities.  I hated going to gym because the kids made fun of me.  Then, one night I dreamt that I was an amateur athlete eligible for the Olympics.  That dream came true. 51 Words This was …

Stick With Your Own Water

Drink from your own well, my son—be faithful and true to your wife. Be happy, yes, rejoice in the wife of your youth.  Let her breasts and tender embrace satisfy you. Let her love alone fill you with delight. - Proverbs 5:15, 18, 19 It was a Sunday afternoon.  Sunlight streamed through the window.  I …

Not His Type
