Top 10 Posts of 2015 {graphic blog}


January 2020  –  Found this in the draft posts. Why didn’t it get published — who knows? But it’s still relevant, so why not share? These all bring back good memories of a difficult year. I still miss my mother every day, and look forward to seeing her again in heaven.

I’m going to go back and read these posts right now. I hope you will too. 

Thanks for reading. God’s grace and mercy to you in 2020.

Top 10 7 Posts of 2015 {blog}

Just a little something new, to ring out the old year.  The graphic version.

First, a note of explanation.  The WORSHIP category is excluded from the first list, for good reason.  The WORSHIP category, including all BIBLE posts, Bible Reading Schedule, Vessels for the Master’s Use, and heart hiding posts and Scripture Memorization page, are the most widely read.

So you could say this list is the second ten posts, not the top.  But for the sake of not causing confusion .. here are the Top 10 Posts of 2015 (not including the BIBLE category).

Here’s what you’ve been reading in 2015.  This list only includes posts written in 2015.

Still Remembering Beulah {family history}


The following is an old post from five years ago on this date. Realized today that May 14, 2020 will be the one hundredth anniversary of my mother’s birth. I still miss both my mother and her sister Beulah very much. Some day we will be reunited for eternity with each other and our Saviour and Father. What a blessed hope we have in Christ!

One hundred years ago, on December 5, 1914, my mother’s oldest sister, Florence Beulah Dennison was born in Digby, Nova Scotia. She emigrated to Boston with her family in July 1923.

Beulah, as she was called by most, became Auntie B to the nieces and grand-nieces and -nephews. Auntie B never married nor had children of her own.

She loved children and they loved her. She taught Sunday School for many years and was the church secretary after retiring from the New England Telephone Company as an operator.

Auntie B went to be with her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in 2009, at age 94. I miss her very much, and look forward to seeing her again in Heaven. I’m so glad God gave her to us.
