The Killing Fields

Sign of the times – The Killing Fields… It seems like every day we hear about someone being killed.  I heard on the news the other day that 341 people in the gun free city of Chicago have been killed this year. Think about it, that’s almost 2 people a day that are killed. Over 1,000 people have been shot.  …

Consequences…

This week I would like to take a look at consequences on how we live our lives.  From our childhood most of us were taught right from wrong from our parents. If we did something wrong, there was a punishment for what we had done.  We needed to take responsibility for our actions.  We also learned about the laws in …

Warfare

With the War going on with Russia and Ukraine, I would like to talk about Warfare. Every day we see news reports on the tragedies of this war.  The innocent people, children, mother, elderly and more, being killed by missiles and the Russian soldiers.  But the war I want to talk about is the one that been going on for over 2000 …

Epitaph…

This week, as I sat in the parking lot before Church Service, I looked out across the cemetery wondering about those buried there. I could see written on the tombstone’s names and dates. Some had written on them beloved Mother, Father, wife or husband but not much more. I started to think about their life… Maybe some were rich or …

Court…

This week I would like to share a story I came across about a young lady going to court.  I hope you enjoy it. “Court” Author unknown A young lady committed a crime, and she was sent to court. The punishment for the crime was life imprisonment. She shed tears for help but there was no one available to help. …

Supreme Court

In the news this Week, the Supreme Court is looking at the abortion laws from Texas.  The Texas law basically bands abortions after 6 weeks of pregnancy.  Which is after the baby’s hearts starts beating.  Since most women don’t know they’re pregnant until after that, this law pretty much stops most abortions.   The Supreme Court is divided on where each …

Leaning Side.

This week I would like to share a story from Jentezen Franklin called “Leaning Side”. I hope you enjoy it. Leaning Side “A pastor of a small church would occasionally call on one gentleman to pray, and every time this one particular guy would pray, he would pray this,  “Oh God, thank you for this word today, and bless these …

Jesus Came to Dinner…

The other day, as I was leaving Wal Mart, I saw an older man dressed in raggedy clothes, standing at the street corner with a sign asking for help.  My first thought was, Oh No another bum begging for money and then to ignore him. I could easily justify not giving to this man, because after all he was probably …

Happy New Year – 2022

In just a very few days will be welcoming in the new year 2022.  I would like to pause for a moment to look back and reflect on this year.This year was surely a year to remember. In January 2021, we find ourselves with a newly elected President and a very divided country. Covid deaths and hospitalizations have declined, with …

Miracles Still Happens…

For everyone who thinks God doesn’t answer prayers and perform miracles, I would like to share with you something that happened to me this week.   A little background for those who do not know me, I retired to a remote location on a mountain top.  I have one neighbor within shouting distance.  I’m a big man and 69 years old …

Count your Blessings….

After listening to the song “Count your Blessings” by Johnson Oatman,  I was thinking about all the blessings that God has given to me. Sometimes I think we take for granted all that God does for us everyday.  God truly gives us so many blessings each and every single day.  Some may even be so small that we might overlook …

Be all you can be…

The other day I saw an advertisement from our Armed Forces that said “Be all you can Be!”  You have to love the concept to be all you can be… that is to maximize and live your life to the fullest.  I would like to explore this concept in our spiritual life.  The phrase “Be all you can Be” Has …

Sneaky Satan…

This week I would like to share with you a post on Facebook from my friend Vernon Hodges. I think we all need to be reminded that there is a spiritual war going on and Satan is on the attack. We have the resources not to fall in Satan’s trap. Thank you Vernon for this post. Material Possessions. One of …

Death…

We all have heard the debate about Life after Death.  Today I would like to speak a little bit about death after death.  So we are forgoing the conclusion that there is life after death. We need to know that there is death after death also. Just recently I came across this picture on Facebook. My first response to this …

Faith on an Island

Faith… This week I would like to share a story about faith with you. When we pray to God, if we have faith and also believe, He will answer. It may not always be the answer we want, but it will be what God wants for us.  “Faith on an Island”  Author Unknown Faith on an Island A voyaging ship was …

Trust…

I hope everyone has had a great week in the Lord. This week I would like to talk about trust. Since Covid started a year and a half ago, we have been told to trust science. Our government is telling us that science has all the answers. Last year when we first learn about Covid 19, The science told us …

Time…

This week I would like to talk about time.  Time is probably the most precious possession we have.  Once we spend a minute we can never get that minute back again.  Each of us were given a set number of days or years to live and spend.  Job 14:5, Says “Since his days are determined, The number of his months …
