On Wings of Love

On Wings of Love

By Janet Starr, Missouri

I was looking out the window of my home one summer morning, wondering why I always reacted a certain way to a particular situation. Suddenly I saw a very large woodpecker fly to the tree in my backyard. He began to loudly peck at a branch and was tearing apart the limb. Very quickly, I got the message: I needed to stop allowing my mind to peck on this situation. It was hindering my spiritual growth.

Rose and the Golden Moth

Rose and the Golden Moth

By Harold Klemp

“Rose” works in a day-care center. Every day when she drives to work, she likes to sing HU, which is a love song to God.

When she got to work one day, she found she was to be in charge of twelve children, ages two to three. She gathered up her little flock and joined the other children and teachers outside. As the little kids began to play and enjoy themselves, Rose found a quiet spot where she could keep on singing HU.

While she was singing HU, along came a moth.
