Thanksgiving, Eternity, and Eight Fathers

November 24, 2016 – Thanksgiving As you sit down to your Turkey Dinner with all the fixings, the hot dinner rolls, mashed potatoes, corn or green bean casserole, stuffing, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie, are you thinking about the sumptuous banquet you are about to take part in, are you thinking about the good times […]

Common Sense, Obedience, and Energy

November 21,2016 – Common Sense Common Sense: sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts (Merriam-Webster) I can remember, as a child and teen, that when I would make a foolish mistake my mother would admonish me saying “why don’t you use the common sense you were born with”. […]

Assurance, Bitterness and Cleansing

November 18, 2016 – Assurance There are no absolute assurances in this life we lead on this earth. We are not assured that every child will be born healthy, that every marriage will last a life time, that all our children will grow up to be morally minded, respectful adults or that we will live […]

Grace, Mercy and God’s Love

November 15, 2016 – Grace I’ve heard it in many sermons and even the bible says “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God” Ephesians 2:8, and yet every time I heard a sermon on Grace I never fully understood all […]

Trusting God, Courage and Fear

Flawed, Cures and Politics

November 6, 2016 – Flawed The bible says that God made each one of us unique. No two people are completely identical, not even identical twins. There is something different in each one of them. I’ve know a few sets, and truthfully, when I first met them I couldn’t tell the difference, but as I […]

Peace, Trust, and Temporary Miracles

November 3, 2016 – Peace We all desire peace. We all desire days where nothing goes wrong, where there is no stress, where we feel content and/or happy with everything around us. Unfortunately in this fast paced world we live in, peace often eludes us. Why is that? I’ve discovered, through the years that peace […]

Losses, Miracles, The Holy Spirit, and Two Months to Go

October 29, 2016 – Losses We all suffer losses in our lives. How we handle it determines how we will survive it. I was raised in a poor household so I grew up not expecting a lot of material things. It didn’t matter me then nor does it matter to me now whether I have […]
