why write

A note from God: Up all night  thinking about praying, but feeling the need to write my prayers – but what is the point of writing? Very clearly heard Him say, “how do you think the Bible was written? All of my servants, from Moses to John the Revelator, wrote their thoughts and prayers.” Blessed…

The bird bath is surrounded…

an anachronism

Contentment Cottage is an anachronism…something located at a time when it could not have existed or occurred. It is written by someone (me) who seems to be displaced in time; who belongs to another age. But that’s alright…since my goal is to fulfill Apostle Paul’s instructions for the older women of the first-century church where Titus acted as Pastor. Bid the…

your choice

“Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life… Deut. 30.19 NLT We did not attend our regular church service this morning. Instead we made the choice to search The Word…

tiny dream house

Have you noticed? Living small has become fashionable in some circles lately. Google “tiny house living” and see what pops up. It’s pretty amazing really. We’ve been living small since the mid-nineties. Doesn’t seem possible, but we moved to the cottage in ’96. As I’ve mentioned before, we have a 750 square foot living area,…
