W is for Worry #AtoZChallenge #Corrietenboom


Looking forward to taking my niece to Haarlem Holland….

The museum

The Corrie ten Boom Museum is located in the house where three generations of the Ten Boom family lived between 1837 and 1945. The Corrie ten Boom House can only be visited with a guided tour. During a tour, visitors receive information about Corrie and her family, and about the events that took place in the Ten Boom house before and during the Second World War. Visitors can see the hiding place, family photographs and objects from the Second World War. The entire upper floor has been made into an exhibition hall.

V is for Victory #AtoZChallenges #Quotes


“The first step on the way to victory is to recognize the enemy.” –Corrie ten Boom, Dutch Resistance, Nazi Concentration Camp Survivor, author and evangelist.

Sometimes it seems the world is against us. Everything that can go wrong does. It is easy for me to forget that a battle is raging. Intuitively all of humanity senses this battle. That is the reason we relate to stories, and movies, and even many games on such a primal level. The battle is spiritual though waged in the physical and the emotional as well. Our enemy is Satan, the head devil, the Father of Lies.

Recognize who your enemy is. It is not the person who disagrees with your politics, who cuts you off in traffic, who is different from you. No, the enemy wants us fighting among ourselves, wants those who are made in the image of God to be at each others throats over little things and large. Let us love one another, raise our shields of faith, and shout out praises to Jesus. God inhabits praises, and the enemy and his minions must flee before them. I will enter this day with praise songs on my lips, enter the battle reminding my foe that he is already defeated.

O victory in Jesus,
My Savior, forever.
He sought me and bought me
With His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him
And all my love is due Him,
He plunged me to victory,
Beneath the cleansing flood.

R is for Response Ability #AtoZ #Quotes


My #AtoZChallenge theme is quotes from Corrie ten Boom whose Christian family spent 100 years praying for the Jewish people and hiding people from the Nazis during the World War II occupation of The Netherlands. The weekly family prayer meetings ended when they were all arrested and sent to concentration camps. After her release, Corrie traveled the world speaking and wrote several books including The Hiding Place and Tramp for the Lord.
