Why Sheep Need a Shepherd

Written on November 11, 2019 at 3:30 pm, by

Admittedly, I’ve written about this topic before. Yet, living as a part of a magnificent church flock, I continue to find some of the intricacies to sheep eyesight to be most fascinating. The reason sheep need a shepherd is that their eyesight is a problem. Due to the eye formation from early lambhood, they are […]

My Morning’s Beginning

Written on November 5, 2019 at 12:24 pm, by

I’m hesitant to write about this. My intent is to both encourage and awaken. Yet, my complete inadequacy is likely to steal my own thunder. If this account would serve to cheer you forward, mission accomplished. All I can do is try. I went to one of my three McDonalds a bit ago for coffee. […]

How Can Encouragement Have so Much Discouragement in it?

Written on October 29, 2019 at 10:04 am, by

I’m sympathetic to you. Yes, you; the one who is doing your best to make strides of progress only to get shot down by various surprises that you just didn’t see coming your way. There is a way to make life pop. Too, there is a way to cause it to wilt. I know both […]

Are the Free Also Imprisoned?

Written on October 22, 2019 at 10:09 am, by

It sounds like a joke. The unimprisoned also being imprisoned, that is. But, I wonder if we know differently.  I think that over-all (no, all) walk dark halls of fear and intimidation while soaking up the sun. Fear intimidates as well as restricts. Even the best of the best (best in community’s perception) walk with […]

Learn Through Fascination

Written on October 15, 2019 at 10:02 am, by

Everywhere we turn we can find opportunities to learn of God from God with God. He isn’t vague. His invisibility shows up visually in and throughout His creation. We, being humans, are persistently challenged to take note of Him… even where we would least expect His presence. Such was a big challenge to the disciples […]

A Warning to the Young

Written on October 8, 2019 at 10:27 am, by

I’ve watched life flow by in stream fashion. Whether ups or downs, gains or losses, there exists the strangest constant. Life is consistently always changing. My concern for the young is that it takes one awhile (like in years) to realize what’s going on.  It is God’s lively nature to shake things up in beautiful […]

Dare to Believe God

Written on October 1, 2019 at 10:08 am, by

To believe God, I have discovered, is anything but casual in attempt. He is so mighty, so strong, so enormous, and so deep in His love for us. Our human nature is to control our learnabilities so that we “think” we come out looking good to those around us. And there is a huge inbuilt […]

Filled With Wonder

Written on September 24, 2019 at 10:09 am, by

Let me guess. You are going through a significantly rough time. This broad statement is so true that many readers may inwardly believe that many would not understand how yours is paramount to all others. This is reflective of just how strenuous our days are. Furthermore, no reader has just one stress. Many are the […]

Religion Gone Afoul and Asmell

Written on September 17, 2019 at 10:02 am, by

Believing in God and His glorious scheme is the utmost target. We will want to be assertive in doing what we can both to abide within and to promote outwardly. However, there seems a catch has developed…and we almost unawaredly pay the price. We must be careful. Not only has a group developed in believing […]

It Was Like God Gave Me a Front Row Seat

Written on September 3, 2019 at 10:23 am, by

I saw something amazing early this morning. Seated at my McDonalds, well one of my McDonalds, I was in just the right bench at just the right time to see a remarkable moment. I looked out the window across the parking lot near a dumpster. A homeless lady was putting on her shoes and headed […]
