  • FLUTTERING SPIRIT -  

    BY MRS. CHARLES COWMAN

    "And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings" (Ezek. 1:25).


    That is the letting down of the wings? People so often say, "How do you get the voice of the Lord?" Here is the secret. They heard the voice when they stood and let down their wings.

    We have seen a bird with fluttering wings; though...

  • WHY DOST THOU WORRY THYSELF?   

    BY MRS. CHARLES COWMAN

    In Streams in the Desert

    "This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing." - Isa. 28:12


    Why dost thou worry thyself? What use can thy fretting serve? Thou art on board a vessel which thou couldst not steer even if the great Captain put thee at the helm, of which thou couldst not so much as reef a sail, yet ...

  • THE JOY OF AN ORDINARY DAY

  • THE JOY OF AN ORDINARY DAY

    How I love life! 

    The raw rays of sunshine that creep into my windows and gently nudge me awake are the first gift of a new day. It is a fierce sunshine that defiantly foils the ability of the window shades to prevent its cheerful entrance.

    I love those early moments of a day so fresh from heaven when everything and anything is a rare possibility!

    As I convince my 60-someth...

  • Nurse Trees

  • Nurse Trees -  

    My backyard, I’ve discovered, is filled with nurses. Not the human kind, but the tree type of nurse: sturdy, fast-growing trees that shelter a host of baby trees growing up beneath their protective branches. In our case, the nurse trees are the brushy ashe junipers that cover our property. Their tangled lower limbs form a strong barrier to any creature – primarily deer –...

  • I Don’t Do Drama!

  • I Don’t Do Drama!  


    If you’re like me, you’ve often said – or thought – I don’t do drama. 

    Yet, as much as you and I would like to shut the chaos, confusion, and cattiness out of our lives and convince ourselves we don’t do drama, it has a way of creeping into our lives anyway. 


    Drama happens when unexpected circumstances hit and we are unprepared to handle them. And drama happens wh...

  • THE DISCIPLINE OF FAITH

  • THE DISCIPLINE OF FAITH -  

    BY MRS. CHARLES COWMAN

    In Streams in the Desert

    "All things are possible to him that believeth." - Mark 9:23

    The "all things" do not always come simply for the asking, for the reason that God is ever seeking to teach us the way of faith, and in our training in the faith life there must be room for the trial of faith, the discipline of faith, the patience of faith, the courage...
