When I lose a lot of sleep and have many things on mind that seemingly I cannot do anything about, I find myself drifting toward the ground of worry. The mantra I claimed for myself at the beginning of 2014 proves once again to me that God knows every single thing about His children and that He has ordained whatever will be to be. I claimed the little two-word phrase “fret not” at the beginning of the year, and we are just into the third month and I think I have about worn it out already.

Over the past several weeks, I have taken several out-of-town road trips. On these trips I used a novel free smart phone app for routing and traffic information called Waze (waze.com). There are an abundance of apps that function with the integral GPS built into almost all smart devices, including smart phones and tablets.

If you can find a dry day this March, take a walk down Calder Avenue near Seventh Street and you’ll inevitably come to the elegant Chambers House Museum at 2240 Calder Ave.

The tall, white pillars, large windows and high ceilings have stood the test of time, a testament to the early crafts­manship of some of Beau­mont’s early homes.
