Death’s Testimony

Written on December 6, 2016 at 10:25 am, by

Isn’t Fall a most beautiful time of the year?  It’s my favorite.  The color scheme from God’s creative pallet is so awesome that even the finest photographers may catch only a momentary glimpse.  Eventually, naked trees stand as if death to the beauty made the final call. Yet, we know that such isn’t true. The […]

Shouldn’t I Have Matured A Bit By Now? 

Written on November 29, 2016 at 10:15 am, by

As it turns out, life isn’t going the way I had assumed.  Now, understand, I love it very much and really wouldn’t want to be without it.  But what surprises me is that I had just figured that by age 69 I would have a better grip on life’s unfoldings.  But it simply doesn’t seem […]

Dare to Approach The Unlived Parts… of Yourself 

Written on November 22, 2016 at 12:30 pm, by

The very subject of being “BORN AGAIN” seems to carry immediate dismissal by oh so very many. That phrase has been trashed; disregarded by the vocal masses…or at least the indifferent ones. The most…the most fascinating experience of all reality has been given a rude shrug as man moves forward by his own self-serving brain […]

When I Get On My Own Nerves 

Written on November 15, 2016 at 10:02 am, by

No one wears me out as quickly as I do.  As a dear friend of mine always says about herself, “I get on my own nerves.”  For me, this is laughably (and sometimes tearfully) true of myself.  If I irritate you, you oughta note how I feel about myself sometimes! Could it be that our struggles […]

That Awful Year That I Was Traded to the Cubs 

Written on November 8, 2016 at 9:08 am, by

Next January I am headed to my 34th year of playing baseball for a week at the St. Louis Cardinals Legends Camp at Roger Dean Stadium and Spring Training baseball complex in Jupiter, Florida.  While the camps began as an only Cardinals gathering at the then Spring Training facility in St. Petersburg, Florida, we later […]

Life is being challenged.  It is said of some that they have a hard life.  Each of us may find ourselves in such a mix along the way.  Truly, there is a push-n-shove that goes on in the inner man that needs to be addressed.  Psalm 46:10 solves much of this; Be still and know that […]

Living From Both Extremes 

Written on October 25, 2016 at 3:21 pm, by

The system of church could use a vigorous boost.  The body of Christ will always do well to consciously remain new in Spirit day by day.  It’s this new zone which challenges us; calls for us to function from such a perspective.  It would seem that hope awaits us, the church, when we decline to function somewhere […]

My Power Verse That Won’t Quit Producing 

Written on October 18, 2016 at 9:43 am, by

“BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication WITH THANKSGIVING let your requests be known to God. And the PEACE of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” “Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is […]

Life Depends On The Placement Of Our Backs 

Written on October 11, 2016 at 12:04 pm, by

Stress.  Concern.  Pressure.  These three, and more, push and prod.  They poke.  They jab.  We live with these elements which frustrate; even depress.  Their forces are so strong that it is often said that our backs are against the wall. What would this phrase, “Our backs are against the wall” imply?  Cornered?  In trouble?  No […]

Hey. You Might Want To Keep What I’m About To Tell You Under Your Hat 

Written on October 4, 2016 at 11:42 am, by

There’s a slick talker roaming within each of our own minds pushing a propaganda of sorts.  It’s a snow job on how bad others are doing, looking, or being while we rationalize within our biased heads that we are above all of the “them and they” failings.  “If they would only…  If they could just see themselves… […]
