CS writes: “My wife’s mother recently passed away after a long terrible bout with MS. Prior to her being debilitated with this disease, my wife tells me that she was into new age type beliefs. . .
I was at a conference recently and one of the attendees said she kept the prayer of Jabez affixed to her bathroom mirror and wanted to know if this prayer is okay.
CSH writes: “I was just going through my closets cleaning house and came across a necklace called a Kimbaleh, that I wore years ago. I actually enjoyed wearing it and liked the sound of the windchime. Becoming more aware at my older age of the new age movement, I am wondering if this is an item that I should not have in my possesion and need to throw in the trash? I didn’t find much about them on the internet but what I did see has made me concerned.”
