  • The Gift of Friendship by Richard Gammill

    My first season of snow and ice in Pagosa Springs began with a thud. One morning, I walked from our house to my little writer’s cabin, when suddenly my feet flew out from under me and I landed hard on the frozen ground. Three broken ribs. A few weeks later, while I was walking our dog, I slipped and fell again. More pain, but no new damage. A year later, I suffered a very bad fall. Seven broken ribs led to nearly two weeks in the hospital followed by months of slow, painful recovery. Last spring…

Forces established to stabilize a country are devoted instead to evil purposes. Terror and torment rule over…

    "Let all the earth fear the LORD" let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him." - Psalm 33:8 Today, I stand in awe of our Lord and Savior. When I pause and reflect upon God's mercy and grace he showers over me, I stand in awe of his goodness and faithfulness. He knew me before i ws conceived in my mother's womb.

  • His Word Is My Mantra by Jan Davis

    My mantra. Luke 6:45 “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” A commercial on television refers to “your mantra.” “Mantra” means: a holy word used in meditation, or an often-repeated expression or idea. It could be a favorite song or a phrase we use to describe our beliefs and emotions. “It is what it is,” “What goes…
