Fearfully and Wonderfully

Made in His image, as scripture states (Genesis 1:27), from the very beginning. Conformed to His image (Romans 8:29). We are fearfully and wonderfully made. For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that…

Wait Till The Right Time

  40 days of rain. Floods. Nothing left alive. And then the rains cease. Appreciable silence ensued from outside the ark. Is it over? Has the time come for God’s curse for the wickedness of man to be over? How quickly will the waters recede? Good questions! So Noah waited for another 40 day span! Do…

Daily Needs

As they travelled through the wilderness, God provided Israel with daily sustenance – bread (manna) by morning and meat (quail) by evening. (Exodus 16) Every day, enough was provided for the needs of that single day. If you saved more than the needed amount it went bad and stunk! Except in preparation for the Sabbath,…

5… 4… 3… 2… 1

The year is rapidly coming to a close. Closing year end tasks are important, almost as much as the tasks of beginning. Now is the time to crowd in those things you said you would have done, and set the stage for the focus of the next year. There is no time for time lost. As…

It's The Day After

All the packages unwrapped… Garbage bins are full, looking for an early pickup. Family has packed and is headed for home. The airports are filled. Roads are a thrill. And sated appetites in deep slumber await. I hear that college ball games are in full swing, and the pro football season is near to an end.…

Christmas 2015

Sort of just waiting for things to happen instead of having some place to be, or something to do.  And just think, out parents have lived through this same…

First Day of Winter

For several months … It’s been stormy, cold and freezing, you know, typical winter weather. But it wasn’t winter. As the  earth completes its tilt away from the sun, the northern hemisphere experienced it’s shortest day and longest night – yesterday. Now we creep the next 6 months to the beginning of summer as the…

8 Hours

It’s not often I sleep more than 5 or even 6 hours.  But last night was not one of them.  8 hours! Wow! These past few days loaded my schedule down, – all the exciting and mundane duties of life, well, the hours of required rest melted away. Recouping, refreshing, and revitalizing body, soul and…

December 20 Countdown!

It’s Just A Few More Days! It’s just a few more days to that celebration of the Birth of Christ… Just a few days more… Although we know that Jesus was most likely not born on December 25th, it is at least a day that we can enjoy the celebration of Emmanuel! Isaiah 7:14 KJV…
