Bitter Sweet

Life is full of challenges, and changes. Challenges come in many formats – some are fun, some you just endure, some are worrisome, and others are downright scary! Like having kids! It was fun and scary when each entered into this life. How we worried over their aches and pains, but how much fun they…

Setting Your Compass

A compass is a remarkable tool.  A child can make one with a needle, water, and a magnet or piece of silk.  Explorers make decisions that affect their life by what they see when they hold it in their hand and goes where no one has gone before. It gives them focus and a sense…

Push…Pull

James 4:7-8 Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. I have never been a good student with some subjects. Math that includes names like Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, etc –I find them to be mysteries and until they are applicable to my life…

The Not So Daily News Habit

There was a time in life when the daily newspaper was so important. In a bygone era it reported the happenings of the recent past, and promoted current and future events. Newspapers were inhaled, savored and the news was shared with everyone in the family. Newspapers were saved, or at least stories and pictures if…

Does The Word Speak?

Social Media Networks have some use in the world. Too many people are using it to post insane and inane comments that clog up the system with wasted electronic data.

Changing…

Now…. I’m all about doing things easily on the web, and according to some, WordPress has better editing tools. I am going to try this out and see. The other sight will remain, but new postings will be tested here.

The Journey is the Destination

(Reposted on 12/26/13 from 8/4/10 – one of my favorite postings…) John 17:1-5 1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should…

Shower…

I remember as a kid getting up in the early morning hours and watching the Perseid Meteor shower. So called because of its location in the Perseus constellation. In reality,it’s not a shower, but the remnants of a comet that has left debris behind and the earth is moving through the debris field. In this…

An Anniversary – Sort of….

When I was about 5 years old, we moved… To Seabrook, Texas. To experience a magical location. Over 100 acres, a park, swimming pool, lake frontage – a really good place to store up a lot of really fond memories. Astronauts lived close to us. Hay bales stacked house high that became a fort. A…
