I’ve Had a Truck Like That

There’s an old joke that goes like this. A rich Texas rancher was talking to a small farmer and bragging about the size of his ranch. He said, “I can get into my truck, drive all day long, and I’ll never make it all the way around my ranch.” The small farmer nodded his headContinue reading “I’ve Had a Truck Like That”

Would You Like to Dance?

Have you ever been to a school dance? If your experience is similar to mine, all of the girls were sitting together on one side of the room. Meanwhile, all of the boys were sitting on the other side of the room. It was perfectly normal for the girls to dance together, but that wouldContinue reading “Would You Like to Dance?”

The Coming Storm

Have you ever witnessed a tornado up close? When you do, it will make a lifelong impact that never leaves you. My personal contact with a tornado happened in Grand Rapids, MI when I was only four years old. The day began just like any other day until the tornado sirens went off. It toreContinue reading “The Coming Storm”

The Forgotten Soldier

This installment is being started on Memorial Day, but may not be finished for posting today. In any case, I can’t say “Thank You” enough for anyone who has served in any capacity in the Armed Forces, especially thankful to those who gave everything to make it possible for me to write and speak freelyContinue reading “The Forgotten Soldier”

A Little Engine that Can

A pastor of a church I once attended said: “Christians can be so spiritually minded that they are of no earthly good, or so earthly minded that they are of no spiritual good.” He knew the problems that every Christian faces, when they live their convictions openly in the world. But have we become soContinue reading “A Little Engine that Can”

Use it to Lose it!

Have you ever played a musical instrument then stopped for whatever reason? Then you may relate to this message. At one point in my life, I played the guitar, banjo, and piano well enough to play and sing on stage publicly. I played at county fairs, church, weddings, and during intermission at the local auditorium.Continue reading “Use it to Lose it!”

Earn or Ask?

As was true last post, we’ve been busy at our house even through a “Stay at home” order from the state. I’ve installed new gutters on our house over the flower gardens that border the walls under the eaves. That took up three days of my time. An office building near my place was beingContinue reading “Earn or Ask?”

Big Brother Helps Us?

The time this week has gone by so fast, I hardly realized that it’s been four days since my last post. In the meantime, I’ve been busy at home doing repairs on the house, gardening with my wife, and listening to the government getting set to reopen the country. We’ve been waiting patiently for thisContinue reading “Big Brother Helps Us?”

Cookie Monster wants a Cookie

Have you ever wondered why some people will never listen to what you have to tell them, no matter how important it may be? No matter what you do, or what you say, nothing will get through to them. You don’t have the right credibility, (education). You don’t have enough money, (influence). You’re the wrongContinue reading “Cookie Monster wants a Cookie”

Why Bother to Learn?

Learning God’s Word seems pointless and boring to someone who walks entirely by the flesh. But only God’s Word provides the clues we need to know the difference between walking by God’s Spirit or walking by a counterfeit spirit. Religion has elevated the written Word to a level of reverence and worship that surpasses theContinue reading “Why Bother to Learn?”
