Standing on the Precipice

Standing on the precipe looking down into the blackness of the abyss below. Is there a bottom to it? What terrors might it hold? What if I loose my will to stand there and totter over the edge? Will he come to me again? Will he save me from this fall? I’ve stood at this […]

Happy New Years In a few hours it will be midnight, December 31, 2019. One minute after midnight we welcome in the year 2020. Many people will be at parties, bars and family gatherings waiting to bring in the New Year. There are those who will sit in front of the television and watch the […]

And It Will Be Given to You

And It Will be Given to You Thanksgiving is just around the corner, just a few days away. The first Thanksgiving that took place in what is now the United States was organized by the pilgrims of Plymouth colony in Massachusetts in 1621. The event celebrated the year’s harvest after the first continental winter survived […]

The Heart

The Heart A healthy heart is important. This heart that pumps 80 beats per minute, is what keeps the body going. It pumps blood to every part of your body. If that blood flow is interrupted, major problems including death can occur. People are more health conscious today than they were 10, 20, 30 years […]

Peace

Peace Standing on the back porch this morning with clear blue skies and a warm sun shining, looking out over our mini-jungle in back, I realized just how blessed I am. After spending most of my life living in apartments in the concrete jungles, living here is such a breath of fresh air. I’ve been […]

God is in Control

God is in Control I know I haven’t posted for a long time. It’s not that I am uninspired, it’s more of a time factor lately. I don’t even know where to start. Phrases like “the light at the end of the tunnel” and “ the path out of the valley” cross my mind but […]

Broken, Weathering the Storm, By My Side and Heart Beats

March 14, 2018 – Broken This world amazes me today in a disgusting way. When I read the news on a daily basis I am just so appalled at everything that is going on. There is no end to criminal activity, and it doesn’t make a difference where you live. Even some people in the […]

Jesus, Forgetfulness and Love

February 8, 2018 – Jesus You know, sometimes I would just like to shake some people and tell them to “wake up and smell the coffee.” As I look around me on a daily basis and see the miraculous works of God, I don’t understand how they can say they don’t believe. Then I have […]

The Stranger

For every black eye that healed, for every bruise and knot on my head that eventually went away, for all the stitches, aching limbs and headaches that are now gone, there were still internal scars that just would not heal over. They were caused by the events that caused all of these injuries and memories […]

It Feels Like Fall, People to Love, People Who Love Me, and No Pain

July 26, 2017 – It Feels Like Fall Our weather has been somewhat weird for several years. There are times I can walk out on the front porch and it seems more like fall than summer, then the next day it’s back up in the 90’s. I remember the first year I lived in Butler, […]
