It’s Valentine’s Day! And the ‘Remodel’ is almost finished. Feel free to wander around the site. You should be able to register as a ‘subscriber’ to the site. I’d appreciate that, since I’m not selling anything. When you register or make a comment that helps me to know that you find something interesting here. I will be adjusting some things, like the menu and some of the items in the sidebar.
Wednesday is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. This is, for many Christians, a season of JOY, a season of preparation for the Holy Week and the Easter season. So, while we do give up something that is a hindrance to our relationship with God, we also rejoice in the JOY of knowing that “He Is Risen!” I wish you a Joyous Lent!

Always Rejoicing is being “Remodeled”. That process is probably about half done as of today. At this time you should be able to access every post through the Menu at the top. This should correct some of the navigation and other problems some smaller screens were experiencing. When this remodel is complete, the Forever Stone site will be remodeled. I do hope you will like the changes, once it’s done.
There are plans to study, most likely, 1st Corinthians once the remodel of Forever Stone is completed. No plans to change things on the Bible Study site. It appears to be working properly.

Merry Christmas! I have not posted much of anything; mostly because I spent the last half of October working Early Voting and then worked Voting Day. Recovering from that took a while. I’m not nearly as spry as I think I am. My wife looked at the “Commercialized Christmas” essay and made a few constructive comments. So I revised it and it’s now ‘up-to-date’. The title is a link to the essay, so just click on it. Again, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

First, I do ask for your prayers. Any time a person tries to do something as a ministry, for the Lord, they will be attacked from the spiritual realm. There are times when doing this is very difficult. It is rewarding. I truly enjoy writing. And so I thank you for your prayers.
The Bible Study of Tobit is complete, as is an essay on the Apocrypha. In that essay you will see some of the ideas from ForeverStone. That’s okay. While writing that essay on the Apocrypha I realized that all of AlwaysRejoicing is concerned, in one way or another, with the idea of Church Unity.
The ForeverStone “Priesthood” adventure is, after a year of trying to write it, completed. I know it does not answer all the questions it raised. But that was never the intent.
“The Fifth Commandment” is finally posted on AlwaysRejoicing. The plan, subject to Holy Spirit approval, is to continue the stories in the “Staley’s Store” series.
I’m pondering two Bible Studies: Jeremiah and 1st Corinthians. I ask your prayers as to which book and guidance in the design of the study.
Finally, I’ve added this to all three sites so you can easily see what’s changed.
That’s the current status of AlwaysRejoicing.com
