Reflections on Devotionals

A couple of weeks ago I told you about my blogger friend, Annie Jefferies, who visited us, with her husband, Don, on their way to mission work in Missouri where they are now assisting in a tiny community. They take meals to those who cannot cook. They round up heaters for those who don't have heat. They take people where they need to go, and, with the nun with whom they are working, they pray, quite a lot.

When they were here Annie shared with me several of the books she was taking with her to assist in her prayer and devotional life.  Among those was the Catholic Women's Devotional Bible. Now before you say, "hey, Sue, I am not Catholic, or I am not a woman," let me assure you that this devotional Bible can be used by anyone. It is no more Catholic nor feminine than any other devotional guide I have come on.

Actually, I tell a lie. It does have more devotional stories about biblical women than biblical men, but that's about it! And, well, it does include what we Protestants call the Apocrypha, but those books are inspired by God as well, so, I think they are justified in any Bible.

You know, we all, or most all, feel we have read the Bible through-and-through at least once, and many of us have, but this guide provides a wonderful way of reading, beginning with Genesis and covering a few chapters each day and also including devotions from time-to-time.

It's been a long time since I have read or heard the Old Testament, except for the Scriptures which we hear read each Sunday. And, for those who might be interested, our Anglican service consists, among other things, of an Old Testament, a Psalms, a New Testament, and a Gospel reading each Sunday.

  • Seibert, Sue 2011.jpg Reflections on life

    Well, thankfully the plumber is here today (Monday) after a weekend without the back toilet, washing machine and shower. The plumber, Norman’s, would have come sooner, but we had too much to do to be here when he came, and we didn’t want to ask him on Sunday. That’s God’s day!

    I have been a member of ancestry.com since its inception - even before, as I was one of the first to participate in rootsweb.com which was subsequently pirated by a few not-so-good people and turned into Ancestry. Ah, but that is another story.

  • Reflections on the Woman's Club of Mineral Wells

    Ok, ok, I know some of you fellows were rather amused by my column a while back - the one telling you not to read. Well, while this column is about women, I hope you will read it and be encouraged by it to assist in the preservation of one of the few grand old ladies left in our town.

    While, as many of you know, I have been pretty skeptical about the revitalization of the Baker Hotel, I do believe it looks pretty good for its going forward.

    How many of you blog? I was asked the other day how many people here in Mineral Wells blog, and I really didn't know the answer to that.
