  •  How beautiful your sandaled feet, O prince's daughter!  Song of Songs 7:1a

    How beautiful ... are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, Your God reigns! Isaiah 52:7

    Summertime is the time for sandals and flip-flops. Every year stores are full of cute styles of cool, barely-there shoes to be worn on hot sultry days. I do not indulge in many toeless shoes, however, because I have such ugly feet!

  •  As a child, I can remember my cousin, Jackie, and I would dream of finding buried treasure. We would even dig under trees and rocks in hopes of finding a box of jewels or money.

    Needless to say, we were never successful in our quest.

    But we all have a treasure trove that we can "dig" into. Proverbs 2:4-5 says if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. 

  •  What I am about to write may sound morbid to some, but I am speaking from my heart.

    When I was a child, and there was a death in the community, someone would ring a bell which was placed on a high post behind the church where my family attended. The bell signaled there was a death and a grave needed to be dug. Men would come with their picks and shovels and begin digging.
