 I am sure glad we have all the milk and bread that we need at my house!            This blizzard is terrifying!  There must be a whole inch of snow in my yard!  What a world!  What a world!           Yes, I am messin’ with you.  Still it is incomprehensible how a dusting of snow can totally disrupt […]

So, this morning I had a weird thought: Only Jesus is qualified to sleep through a storm!           Mark tells us a vivid story of Jesus and the boys crossing the Sea of Galilee to get to the other side when a terrible storm blew up.  And, this must have been one whopper of a storm.           Most […]

This morning I had a crazy thought!  I remembered a decades old TV commercial that stated, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste.”              I kind of got a bounce off that and considered, “Pain is a terrible thing to waste!” I am not meaning to be insensitive or anything but, I […]

I am kind of loath to say it, but I really do not like January!           January is cold, barren, kind of lifeless outdoors and rather slow-paced.  On the other hand, Cheryl loves January because it is cold, barren, kind of lifeless outdoors and slow-paced.           She has even made these cute little snowman shirts for the grandkids.  Each […]

This morning while reading about the old prophet Elisha, I had an interesting thought.  I wonder, just how much rearranging God does behind the scenes to help true believers avoid peril.           I am guessing quite a lot.  We fret from time to time but just how often are we besieged by calamity?           We will never know in […]

Today may be a good day to talk about annoying people.            Unfortunately, often times these are the folks who care about us most.  I’ll get around to that in a moment.           Once upon a time, back in the day, two kings were sitting around chatting.  There was peace in the valley, all was […]

Have you ever considered that much of our culture views God as a cosmic killjoy?  I’ll get back to that in a bit.           Our son Cory left for California on Tuesday.  It was tearful.           Words of my dad ran through my head, “Just when your kids grow up and become fun, they move away!”           But, Cory had […]

Today may be a good day to wake up and smell the coffee.           Nicodemus had a wake up and smell the coffee moment.  He had one when he met Jesus in the cover of darkness.           All his life he had hitched his mule to the wrong wagon.  He was a Pharisee and a person of prominence in […]

Have you ever considered how life-changing and restorative the properties of forgiveness can bring to a wounded soul?           Quite a few years ago, I worked with a woman who spent a period of time walking through that proverbial dark lonesome valley.  She was filled with anger, resentment and bitterness.           Why?  It […]

We’re having a terrific Tuesday!  The first Tuesday in a brand-new year, actually.  An old saying by my Grannie ran through my head this morning.  It was something like, “The days creep by but the years fly.”  And, they do…fly!  I got caught up in a time warp on Sunday.  I was driving home from church at the time; […]
