What Is The Rest of the Story?

What will be the rest of your story? Through the years of driving to work early in the morning, I would listen to the talk radio with a primary focus on the traffic report. For the most part, Houston has an excellent spate of freeways and as long as you know where they go, how…

There Is Always A Back Story

I did not grow up with Peter Pan… Until I was in my 40’s I had never seen anything about Peter or Wendy. I had not read the book, seen the movie, or attended the Broadway show depicting Never Never Land. I vaguely knew the story line, but I probably knew more about “Lost Horizon”…

Post Super Bowl – It's Monday

We must always remember it’s only a GAME… But the Super Bowl has become one of the most watched games on the face of the earth. It is said over 100 million people tuned in yesterday from around the world. They watched for a winner, the commercials, and the outlandish halftime show that never seems…

The Love Of God, This Sunday

Preparing and over-preparing…and feeling ill-prepared… The process whereby I get ready for His Sunday morning message. I work hard at making it not be about what I know, and my personality, but more about what He is…and what He wants us to hear and know this day. It’s a special day that takes a little…

I Love Words!

I Know There Are Things I’m Not Good At Though I am no Einstein when it comes to the higher and deeper thoughts of math and science, science makes more sense due to all the fiction written about it. Math, on the other hand, is a language in and unto itself that sounds like foreign…

What Can You Hear?

What Can You Hear? There are five senses that we depend on to be effectively alive in this world! Taste, Hear, See, Smell – these senses are located in your head. Feel – this is the one sense that impacts the head but we often think of it as coming from our fingers. The senses…

How Clearly Do You See?

I am listening to a video… Yes… A video. It’s playing in the background as I work on my computer. It is a video of the Gospel of John, in the New International Version translation. Actors are playing out the entire book, and I am listening. Not watching. Imagine a blind person. If they pay…

What Does Your Conversation Say About You?

Politics is in full swing… Iowa is history. New Hampshire is on the forefront. Then all the other states primaries fall quickly between now and the middle of June. (See complete list here) The rhetoric is not about using language skillfully, but rather how snide and condescending one politician or pundit can be over the…

When Faith Trips Up

We all have faith in things that will never fail… As I look at the bolts holding the scaffolding to the face of the cliff at Masada… Much like I have faith that my country will not go through a constitutional upheaval… Well. That’s my faith at work. Engineers constantly affirm that this cable platform…

From Where I Sit

From Where I Sit… There is no peace for any of us, when there is no peace throughout this planet. From every angered and twisted act of defiance, war, terrorism and crime, the world is forever in the throes of one person attempting to get the edge over another person. I was thinking about the…
