Gifts?

Published December 11, 2017

Just so you know, it’s not about the presents. Really, it’s true. But then again, it also depends on how much of the kid within you still exists. Mine is still living, breathing and some have told me it will never disappear even though my hair has. If we focus on the presents we will be sorely disappointed. We can all remember back to a Christmas when we didn’t get what we would have liked. That’s because it had to do with satisfying our wants. Which brings me to the point where we need to say to our children; “If […]

Nothing Is Impossible

Published November 13, 2017

Have you ever wanted to sing what Frank Sinatra sang, “I did it my way”? I believe what we followers of Jesus Christ really want to say is; “We want to do it God’s way.” But when I reflect back to how I arrived where I am today I have just a few people to thank for getting me here besides God. Beyond them I spent time talking to God and listening to what He had to say. He always told me to never give up and never take a back seat in my life. Then He called me into […]

I Didn’t Know That

Published November 8, 2017

There are many mysteries in life. How the universe works and stays in perfect balance is one. Not too many planets seem to get out of their orbit. At least that is what we have observed for a very long time. I would have to say, that the shepherds that looked up into the night sky when Jesus was born probably saw the same heaven we see when we look up into the night sky tonight. All are in perfect harmony. Closer to home, we ask ourselves, why were we born & what is my purpose in life? We are […]

The Winds Of God Blow Through Our Hearts

Published October 16, 2017

And the big wind blew! How was it at you place yesterday afternoon? We were just home from church and I was spending some time on the computer when all of a sudden I hear a big bang. At that moment the electricity went out and the screen when black. This has happened the odd time but came back on pretty quick. Not this time. The wind was so severe the rain was going sideways and you couldn’t see five feet in front of us. I didn’t know that until I looked up from my computer screen. I looked out […]

Something to Talk About

Published September 20, 2017

Have you ever notice how so many young people have little to no concept of who God is. I had opportunity recently to sit and listen, (without them realizing) to young people and their conversation. They talked about this, that and the other. They talked and texted and seemed to be in their own little world. Then I realized that I was seeing a glimpse of myself a long time ago. Well except for the texting bit. Did I ever tell you about my girlfriend’s mom putting a phone in my room and paying the monthly bill so I could […]

Just Do It! Doesn’t always work

Published September 11, 2017

What takes priority in your life today? All of us set priorities. We even mull over the question, what’s important to us? Some will immediately admit it’s work. A long time ago, I remember sitting with an older man who asked me how I set priorities. At the time, young and foolish, I talked about all those things that occupy a young single man’s existence. He, being much wiser than I, knew of what I talked as he himself had walked the same path. At a young age we seldom have lists of things and how they fit into our […]

LIGHT IN A DARK WORLD

Jesus is the light of the world but what does that have to do with our light?

Cleaning Up Our Lives

Published August 23, 2017

Many of us have the odd bit of stuff that gets into our computer and mess it up. We don’t really want them there. I realized this morning that my computer seemed to be a little slower than usual and I wondered? Could it be some part of the vast internet was trying to get on my computer? Then the three websites that I have going, were all down. What’s with that? And why would they try to hack a small player in the vastness of the internet where they are nothing but an inconvenience? Thanks to our amazing son-in-law, […]

Another Detour.

Published July 10, 2017

There are days.  You probably have them just like me. These are the days you don’t feel good about how you got through the day. Seems like you didn’t do much. Nothing accomplished and you might even think of yourself as a bit of a failure. It happens to me. Many mornings I get up and thank God for the day and ask Him to help me in those things I want to get done and all those things I want to accomplish. Then it happens. No, it’s not any one great big road block, it’s just those insignificant detours. […]

Take A Seat

Published June 5, 2017

I’ve been doing something new lately. It isn’t earth shattering or anything like that. It’s more like a gentle push in a direction that I’m not used to going. After a very full week I took the opportunity to just go and sit down outside. Liked it so much I did it again the next day. All this interest in quiet moments came out of watching a commercial on tv. You have to know that I mute almost all commercials. I don’t want what they are selling and don’t want to hear about a, “you deserve this” item. It was […]
