  • Enduring and Understanding the Contradictions of Life

    13 May 2016

    Contradictions or Ironic circumstances seem to happen so often that I wonder why we consider them to be contradictory or ironic – yet we do. I think that is because we are caught up in sort of an alternate universe – where two things are constantly going...

  • A Tribute to the Birds

    13 May 2016

    (A Lesson From Creation) Learn a bit from the birds, who neither toil nor spin, nor take up a religion to cover their sin. They don't sow nor reap, as we humans do, but trusting the one who created them true, they lift grateful voices before the sun dawns,...

  • ESSE QUAM VIDERI ~ We Still Have Much to Learn

    16 April 2016

    “To Be, Rather Than To Seem (To Be)”, To become, not just pretend. To think, act and do, as I claim to want to, bringing hypocrisy, lies, to an end. To live in the wholeness of God's ideal, To really experience, finally feel, His Love, His smile, His...

  • All We Need Is Love. But Which Kind?

    02 March 2016

    Of course, there is the God kind of Love. It has always been and will always be! Though it is not fully grasped by most of humanity, and is therefore not fully lived or represented. It is fully described in First Corinthians, chapter 13, and is definitely...

  • Vacation or Assignment?

    29 February 2016

    (What On Earth Are We Doing?!) Of course there is a vast difference! A vacation, ideally, is a mere rest, a time of refreshing, a cessation of work – usually a brief season that has been set apart specifically for those things. But an assignment, is a...

  • A Revival of True LOVE

    21 February 2016

    Those of us who love mushy love stories have experienced that feeling of disappointment, irritation, and frustration when the hero sacrifices his life out of his great love for his lady. I find that I have this feeling of, “What was the point of that,...

  • A Matter of Wine Skins...

    16 February 2016

    We all want a lot! The problem has become that no one wants to work for anything anymore! We have become such an entitlement oriented society! A bunch of exceedingly spoiled, demanding, petulant brats! Who really believe that we deserve freedom and prosperity...

  • Last Night's Stupid Bowl, And This Nation's Chances of Survival

    08 February 2016

    Last Night's “Stupid Bowl” And This Nation's Chances of Survival I will get to the correlation between those two subjects eventually. But now that I have your attention let me say, first of all, that I am not really a football fan. I endure it because...

  • Speaking the TRUTH in LOVE

    06 February 2016

    “Speaking the Truth in Love” does not mean sugar-coating a bunch of idealistic hogwash! Nor does it mean velvet-cloaking malicious, self-defending, vitriolic spewing of scripture-based or themed bashing in the name of instruction! Speaking the Truth in...

  • Cheap Obedience?

    08 January 2016

    "Obedience" which comes too easily is not obedience at all. It may be compliance, but it is usually pretentious, bogus, butt-kissing - to obtain some other goal or advantage - it is not real obedience. It is, therefore, Cheap. Easy come, easy go. Real...

  • Blessed Redeemer - Do We Have the Correct Picture?

    03 January 2016

    How well I remember the old Hymn - "Blessed Redeemer! Precious Redeemer! Seems now I see Him on Calvary's Tree, wounded and bleeding, for sinners pleading, blind and unheeding, dying for me!" That is a great place to begin our relationship with the Redeemer...

  • 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, 2015

    28 December 2015

    'Twas the Night Before Christmas, 2015, the times sure are changing, get a load of this scene! It's not going to be a White Christmas this year, and no fat man is bringing the source of our cheer! The night before Christmas! Yet still, through the house,...

  • Star Whores, The Farce Awakens!

    23 December 2015

    Sorry, but as you have already surmised from the title, this isn't going to be another gushing accolade to this pitifully inept episode of the “Star Wars”, the pretend universe! So if you are a dyed in the wool lobotomy victim of this serial brain killer,...

  • Thanksgiving 101

    24 November 2015

    Wow. What can I say? Lately I have felt like the poster child for “Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events! I think I have come to embody that one quote for which Joyce Meyer has become famous - you know, the one where she said that she went through...

  • An Appointed Time, for Every Purpose Under Heaven

    15 November 2015

    There is a time to advance and a time to retreat, there is a time to press and a time to pass. There is a time to remember and a time to forget! There is a time to forgive, and a time to hold accountable – and often relationships those are combined. There...

  • The Circle of A Life, Observed

    22 October 2015

    When I was young I was smoking hot, smart as a whip, strong, capable and virtually tireless. I was into helping others, and trying to better myself at the same time. Life seemed one long blur of constant activity. I worked, studied, worshiped and dated...

  • One Happy Testimony of the Awesome Journey of Abandonment

    16 October 2015

    First of all let me explain what I mean by “Abandonment”. I am NOT talking about the current concept of “freedom” – that seems to believe that having nothing, and no taking zero responsibility for anything is being “free”. Well. In one sense of the word...

  • Aging Gracefully?

    10 September 2015

    Now that my age is finally catching up with me I have found that this is much easier said than done. I am SO not kidding. I have always been an old soul, so while 20 jarred me a bit (mostly because childhood was over and I completely missed it), 30 just...

  • Yeshua, Our Champion Restorer!

    03 September 2015

    (Part Three: Removing the Strongholds/Contradictions which Block our Faith) The fallen flesh is basically one big stronghold – from which the enemy of our souls operates. We are born with a serious sin-festation, which must be expunged before we can draw...

    31 August 2015

  • The Anna Duggar Dilemma, Finding Balance

    23 August 2015

    (As in.... Offering Opinon vs. Rendering a Verdict) Yesterday I came across a rant that someone had posted concerning the plight of Anna Duggar, since more of Josh's sins have been been smeared across our screens. The ranter said that she, “ Was about...

  • Eclipsing Ourselves

    08 August 2015

    (In the Beauty of Family) The beauty of child-rearing and it's main, though well hidden, function is achieiving Selflessness. Meaning that, if we do it properly, must come out of ourselves, and learn to serve other's well. It is a virtue of virtues, and...

  • The Good Fight of Faith

    19 July 2016

    It's true we can't win every fight, but we can war with all our might! Sometimes retreating, to fight again, but if we don't fight, we sure can't win! Sometimes we have to swallow loss, sometimes we get to prove who's boss! But if we hide to avoid the...
