    The Will of God

    Sat, Jan 3, 2015
    1 John 2:17 “And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” My question to you is this, “Do you want to do the will of God?” Samuel had been sent on a task for the Lord. He was to anoint the next King of Israel. Samuel’s destination was ...
     

    A New Year

    Sun, Dec 28, 2014
    Over the past few days, I have said it over and over again, “it is hard to believe the year is gone”. Yes, we are hours away from welcoming 2015. Don’t you think that time is a funny thing. And I’m not just talking about how long sermons are. One minute you’re holding a baby, the next minute ...
     

    Christmas

    Sat, Dec 13, 2014
    Saturday evening, our family celebrated Christmas with Chris, Bro. & Sis. Sauters, and the Hardbargers. As always, it was a wonderful time of family, laughing, of course, eating, and just plain fun. Stories were told, and retold. Memories were made, that we will laugh about next year. I love this time of year. Yes, I love the ...
     

    Black Friday

    Sat, Dec 6, 2014
    Well, we did it again this year.  Yes, at 6:00 on Friday, “Black Friday” that is, we were already in the stores.  For the most part, it was a family affair.  We also included Bro. and Sis. Groves in the adventure.  That is exactly the way they summed it up, an adventure. I am sure you have seen pictures from across ...

    Friendships

    Sat, Nov 15, 2014
    The wisdom of the Bible continues to amaze me.  The scripture speaks with a pointed simplicity.  One of those scriptures that is so piercing and to the point is in Proverbs 22:24-25 (KJV) 24  Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go: 25  Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul. In ...
     

    Remember

    Sun, Nov 9, 2014
    This week we observe Veterans Day, which is a day of remembering the men and women who have served in the US Military.  Each of us knows that Freedom is the birthright of an American citizen.  However, let’s remember, freedom is never free.  The men and women that carry the honor of being a veteran understand more than most of ...
     

    Planning

    Sat, Nov 1, 2014
    How often do you find yourself doing things unintentional opposed to doing things that you have planned? I think each of us has both of these occur in our lives. I began to think about that in regards to spiritual matters. Most thing that we do without planning is in response to circumstances or our environment, while, intentional actions ...
     

    Up

    Sat, Oct 25, 2014
    Recently, I was at a hospital, when asking for the room number of a patient, the receptionist told me there were two ways up. I was given the choice of taking the steps or the elevator. Either way, the direction was up. Praise Elevates or raises us into the Lord’s presence and power. My choice was the ease ...
     

    Out of Gas

    Sat, Sep 13, 2014
    Has this happened to you?  You know that you need gas, but your too busy, or you don’t feel good or you have other things to do.  So you pass by the gas station.  Until suddenly, the car sputters and then the engine dies.  You didn’t get gas and you suffer the consequences.   You had the opportunity, but passed up ...
