The inspiration for this website came from a Scripture song I heard over 10 years ago at a ladies retreat:

Like Apples of Gold in pictures of silver
A word fitly spoken shall be,
Like Apples of Gold in pictures of silver
Let my life bring glory to thee.

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
Proverbs 25:11

Although some of the "stories" listed are made up, the Scriptural truths they illustrate are very real and can be of great benefit in a Christian's walk with the Lord and as illustrations for the lost.

It is my heart's desire that amongst the pages of this website, the Christian find words of encouragement and be spurred on to service for our Lord, and that seekers of the truth find Salvation in the timeless truths of God's Word for these troubled times.

Disappointment – His Appointment


Disappointment – His Appointment

"Disappointment – His appointment,"
Change one letter, then I see
That the thwarting of my purpose
Is God's better choice for me.
His appointment must be a blessing,
Though it may come in disguise,
For the end from the beginning
Open to His wisdom lies.

"Disappointment – His appointment,"
Whose? The Lord, who loves me best,
Understands and knows me fully,
Who my faith and love would test;
For, like a loving earthly parent,
He rejoices when He knows
That His child accepts, unquestioned,
All that from His wisdom flows.

"Disappointment – His appointment,"
"No good thing will He withhold,"
From denials oft we gather
Treasures of His love untold,
Well He knows each broken purpose
Leads to fuller, deeper trust,
And the end of all His dealings
Proves our God is wise and just.

"Disappointment – His appointment,"
Lord, I take it, then, as such.
Like the clay in hands of potter,
Yielding wholly to Thy touch.
All my life's plan is Thy moulding,
Not one single choice be mine;
Let me answer, unrepining –
"Father, not my will, but Thine."

~Edith Lillian Young~


For he performeth the thing that is appointed for me:
and many such things are with him.

Job 23:14

Notes About Mothers




 Real Mothers don't eat quiche;
 They don't have time to make it.

 Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils 
Are probably in the sandbox.

 Real Mothers often have sticky floors, 
Filthy ovens and happy kids.

 Real Mothers know that dried play dough
Doesn't come out of carpets.

 Real Mothers don't want to know what 
The vacuum just sucked up….

 Real Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?' 
And get their answer when a little
 Voice says, 'Because I love you best..'

 Real Mothers know that a child's growth is not measured by height or years or grade… 

It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother……..

 The Images of Mother

 4 YEARS OF AGE – My Mommy can do anything!

 8 YEARS OF AGE – My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!

 12 YEARS OF AGE – My Mother doesn’t know everything! 

 14 YEARS OF AGE – My Mother? She wouldn’t have a clue. 

 16 YEARS OF AGE – Mother? She's so five minutes ago.

 18 YEARS OF AGE – That old woman? She's way out of date!

 25 YEARS OF AGE – Well, she might know a little bit about it!

 35 YEARS OF AGE – Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.

 45 YEARS OF AGE – Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?

 65 YEARS OF AGE – Wish I could talk it over with Mom…


 The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair..

  The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, 

Because that is the doorway to her heart, 

The place where love resides. 

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, 

But true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. 

It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she

 Shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!
