60 Years Ago
I know I will be dating myself, but 60 years ago I was 12. My grandfather gave me my very first Bible. I was so proud - it even had my name on the front. But even more important, on the inside, he had written in "Psalms 119:11.” Before you read any further, please open your Bible and read that scripture.... I have worn out at least four Bibles since then, but i... read all »
Funny, huh?
Funny, huh? I found these in my archives: > Funny How $100 "looks" so big when taken to church, but so small when taken to the mall. > Funny how long it takes to serve God for an hour, but how quickly a team plays 60 minutes of basketball. > Funny how long a couple of hours spent at church are, but how short they are when watching a movie. > Funny how... read all »
Trash Icon
The trash icon is that little trash can on your email page that enables you to get rid of the "junk" email items. I use this icon every time I look at my email. But, it doesn't get rid of it right then, rather stores it until I "empty" the trash can. It is still there and can be recalled if I want, or emptied at some other time, simply by pushing "trash". "Poof, i... read all »
Apollo and God
Man sets foot on the surface of the moon!  Apollo 11, July 20, 1969. Twenty-one years old, along with 94% of Americans, I watched on black & white TV, Neil Armstrong stepping onto lunar soil. "One small step for man, One giant leap for Mankind." Before that, because it was Sunday when they landed, Buzz Aldrin brought along communion.  The first thing eaten ... read all »
Embarrassed?
Think for a moment...Have you ever had a child say or do something in a public surrounding that made you want to dig a hole and pull the ground in over you?  It could be your child, or grandchild, cousin, some relative or maybe someone unrelated to you at all.  The words or actions at that moment may come from an innocent child, but  we, with our extre... read all »
Nation Impressed by Oklahoma Foot Washing
You won’t see that headline in any news broadcast or newspaper, but Oklahoma has the attention of our nation.  Tragedies normally bring out the best and/or the worst in people.  The recent storms again have shown one of God’s teachings and Oklahoman’s have dazzled the nation with it – “foot washing”! Commentators, reporters, networks continue am... read all »
God's Hospital...The Church
Almost everyone I know has spent some time in a hospital and for a variety of problems.  Once we have been diagnosed with something, we agree to be admitted to the care of that institution.  There are doctors, nurses, medications, and health equipment to aid our needs.  And even though it greatly affects our routine and our lives, we want it fixed. ... read all »
Warning: Satan Is After Your Kids!
Honest, he not only wants you, but he is going after your kids!! Satan's "native language" is the lie - for he is "the father of lies" (John 8:44  NIV)        Consider the lies he's telling your children: 1.   "It's Ok to 'Do your own thing!'"   Collins English Dictionary says,  "If you do your own th... read all »
I Am Fearfully & Wonderfully Made
On a cool, morning recently, I awoke to the sound of my own breathing.  Not snoring (although that has also happened before), this was the normal rhythmic sound of air entering and exiting my lungs.  As I lay there wrapped cozily in my blanket and with my eyes closed, I couldn’t help but think of David’s words in Ps 139:14… I will praise You,... read all »
Invitation
"Someone defiantly will pay for your sins. Will it be you or will it be Jesus." This was the sign I happened on while surfing the internet.  I thought to myself how powerful the message conveyed in such a short sentence.  For those of us who have believe in Christ as our Lord and Savior and have responded, the words are not anything we didn't already know.&... read all »
