Some habits need to be broken

November 25, 2009 Rhonda Schrock 11/25/09 Goshen News column

Note: This column appears in the 11/25/09 edition of the Goshen News. Yeah, it’s two days late; so enjoy a little Thanksgiving gift from The Squaw. “A habit is something you can do without thinking, which is why most of us have so many of them.” So says Frank A. Clark. Nuts. Just as I’m […]

A place of safety

November 25, 2009 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Here are the words to a song that I’d not listened to in a long, long time. In this current time of trial and testing, my mind went back to this particular CD, and so I dug it out. In the last couple of weeks, the Lord has been impressing on me the very real […]

Thanksgiving column

This is the column I wrote two years ago after our Thanksgiving festivities. Since you won’t get this week’s column until later, you can read that one here. It brings back good memories. Enjoy!

Quote of the day

November 24, 2009 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

The Groggy YA (not to be confused with the Shaggy DA) to me this morning after his first sip of a new french roast that a faithful reader just recently gave me: “Is this something different than the Jamaican Me Crazy (our normal brew)?” Me: “Why?” The Groggy YA: “Well, when I looked in the […]

Two stuffed turkeys

November 24, 2009 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Due to human error (sigh), the column did not run in yesterday’s paper. I’ve been told it will probably run in Wednesday’s edition. As I told the kind and gracious Editor Monica, “There will be more than one stuffed turkey on Thanksgiving Day, I’m tellin’ you!” That’s what happens when your brain is going in […]

“Thanks for the entertainment”

That’s what an elderly couple said to us on Saturday night after watching the six of us – The Mister and I and four active boys – having pictures taken at the Farmstead Inn in Shipshewana. We were over in the conference center where they have a nice fireplace and a lovely Christmas tree. There […]

In Thy presence

November 20, 2009 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

“Pursuing God is hard.” That’s what a friend said to me this week. And how right she was. Pursuing God and pursuing true life, eternal life, is the hardest thing in the world. Why? Because it is always, always opposed. Being content with the status quo, with life as it is, is far more comfortable […]

Delay is not denial

November 19, 2009 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Here is an excerpt from that wonderful little devotional book, God Calling, from which I’ve shared with you before. This one definitely spoke to me this week. Remember, it is a delightful collection of daily thoughts written down by two poor, lonely English women back in the 1930s. For one year, they met together every […]

It’s a colorful life

November 17, 2009 Rhonda Schrock 11/16/09 Goshen News column

Note: This column appears in the 11/16/09 edition of the Goshen News. Life, I’ve decided, is a rainbow. Creation itself bears witness to this as we’ve just seen with the advent of autumn. The Good Lord could have colored our world in monochrome, shades of gray and black. Instead, He opened up his paint box […]
