Didn’t I Tell You?

I am convinced that parents speak perfect English, but their children simply hear a different message. Just before leaving for work one morning, I  warned my three boys, ages 8, 7, and 3, not to jump off the porch because they could possibly break something. It turns out that what the oldest boy actually heard... Continue Reading →

A Christmas Prayer

Merciful and Loving God, we come before your throne of mercy and grace, in total awe of your kindness and goodness. The gift of our Savior, Jesus Christ demonstrates for all time the depth, width, breadth, and length of your unfailing love for your children, the sheep of your pasture. Father, today as we celebrate... Continue Reading →

A Snippet of My Faith

Today, I want to give you a snippet of why I am convinced of the reality of God and His Son, Jesus Christ. My faith is built on my belief that God hears and answers prayer. Psalm 66:5 states, "Come and see what our God has done, what awesome miracles he performs for people!" Let... Continue Reading →

The Good Neighbor

Mom taught me the real message of being a good neighbor, for she loved the Lord, and she took His command to take care of the least among us literally. She did not do it expecting that Jesus was keeping a score sheet and that she would get a bigger crown in Heaven than others. Instead, she lived by the words in James 2: 17-18, "Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works."

“Where was God?”

"Where was God?" It is a question I hear a lot as a Christian when attempting to comfort someone after the loss of a loved one or a horrifying event. I find it a difficult question, mainly because I do not have an answer. The reasons why suffering occurs is as much one of my... Continue Reading →

Giving Thanks

      Sometimes, I struggle with thankfulness this time of year. Now, despite my age, I have great health. My parents lived to 93+, so I have great genes. I am married to a great lady and we own a house and have a plan to retire with enough money, having mostly recovered from a devastating... Continue Reading →

An Overflowing Cup

Like David in the 23rd Psalm, I have been blessed amazingly through the years. In his great psalm of praise to the Good Shepherd who provided protection, provision, and prosperity to him, he says, "The Lord is my shepherd. I have everything I need" (Psalm 23:1). In a world where people seem to never tire of consuming "stuff," it is rare to hear someone say that they have all that they need or want. I am blessed to be one of them, as my cup truly overflows with blessings unimaginable just a few years ago: a caring and loving husband, the self-sufficiency of my children, the ability to fulfill my calling through teaching, and good health.
