    Making Bitter Things Better

    Sun, Apr 19, 2015
    Yesterday, we spent the day with Bro. and Sis. Zimmerman, and of course Josiah. It was a day of fellowship, shopping, of course eating, and we had to give Josiah some play time. So we took the Zimmerman’s to Coonskin Park in Charleston. It was a lot of fun. I remember going to Coonskin and taking my ...
     

    But For This Cause

    Sun, Apr 5, 2015
    When addressing Pilate Jesus made this statement “…but for this cause came I unto this hour.” An accurate statement would be that Jesus was born to die. Have you considered everyone that was involved and necessary for the crucifixion to happen? There needed to be a Judas, a denier, liars and accusers, others that would not betroubled, ...
     

    I Do Not Understand

    Sun, Mar 22, 2015
    I admit that there are somethings that I do not understand. Splitting atoms is above my pay grade. The balance of the universe is more than I can handle, and the why teenagers act the way they do totally baffles me. There are a couple of more things that confound me. I know that Jesus loves me, ...
     

    Problem Solved

    Mon, Mar 16, 2015
    My name is David Johnston and I am dependent on my computer. There I said it. Confession is good for the soul. All is great with my computer as long as it working well. However, when the beeping starts, or it freezes, or some other unexplainable event happens, then it drives me crazy. Not long ago, ...
     

    Valentine Love

    Sun, Feb 15, 2015
    Do you remember celebrating Valentine’s Day in grade school? Shoeboxes became “mailboxes” covered with construction paper, with a pipe cleaner shaped into a heart. A big oval slit cut in the top waiting for all those envelopes to be stuffed in. We would go to Cheds (a local department store) to pick out a package of Valentines. The teacher sent a ...
     

    Framed Together

    Sun, Feb 8, 2015
    This is being written before I left for Israel, but in anticipation of the trip, I am writing about one of the sights in Israel. I don’t know if I will see it or not, but it would be real interesting. One of the many places that I hope to see is Solomon’s quarries – also known as Zedekiah’s cave. ...
     

    A Promise

    Sun, Feb 1, 2015
    Tomorrow, I leave for Israel. This is going to be an exciting trip. Seeing and walking the land that I often preach about will be extremely interesting. As I was thinking about the trip, I remembered that Israel was the nation entrusted with tremendous revelation. Literally, they were the guardians of truth. From Abraham, to ...
     

    Music

    Sun, Jan 25, 2015
    As you know, Sis. Crystal and I get up early during the week. My wife gets up around 5:00 AM, and I usually get up around 5:30 AM. Normally, any house around this time is totally quiet. Well, no so, at our house. Every morning when I walk out of my room, I hear one of ...
     

    New Things

    Sun, Jan 18, 2015
    There are some things that I just do not like. I do not like liver. I do not like a day when I do not feel like I have accomplished something. And, I do not like car troubles. Over a week ago, my wife was driving home from work, and her car just stopped. Whether ...
     

    Made Up Mind

    Sat, Jan 10, 2015
    A couple of years ago, after eating dinner at Bob Evans, we were going to the car. I was getting in the car, thinking that we were leaving. I was mistaken. Looking down the hill, Nick and Conner were on their way to, well, I didn’t know where to. Being the dad, I told them, “we’re ...
