My Church

Is that a phrase you use? “My Church” If it is, I have to wonder, what do you do to demonstrate ownership of said church? Don’t get me wrong, if you use that phrase, I praise God you are in a church, and hope it’s one where you’re developing a...

Stoic or Christian

Did you know there’s a difference? I recently read a book by Jerry Jenkins and Tim LaHaye about the Doctor and Historian Luke. It was a work of fiction and assumed that Luke was a Stoic before Christ found him.  Most people don’t even know what a Stoic is;...

Saying “I’m Sorry”

Those three little words can be tough . . . OK, so it's two words if you use the contraction, but you get my point. I've had a really hard time with them over the years, especially if I wasn't to blame. ...

I have an opinion about those who support Socialism

Saturday we worked to make the walkway between our garage and house look nicer. As I dug dirt so there would be room to put the drain pipe in so the water will stay out of the garage, I developed some opinions about those who support Socialism. I’m assuming...

More on the Polymyalgia Rheumatica

Just in case you subscribed to my blog to keep up with this crazy disease, let me share a bit. Tonight I’m writing because I’m miserable. I need to vent, and I hate to talk about it to folks around me. I know they care, but they can’t do...

Pain

I’ve been told I’m a bit philosophical . . . and I guess that’s a true statement. I’ve also decided that I’ve finally lived enough years and seen enough to have some opinions that may be worth listening to. For the last half hour or so I’ve been contemplating...

The Importance of Fathers

I’ve been thinking a lot about Fathers lately. I’d like to write them all a letter, especially those dads who come to church on a somewhat regular basis, or even those dads who show up a couple times a year.  I guess I’d kind of like moms to read...

More about the Polymyalgia Rheumatica

So, after really thinking about this “condition,” I’m starting to wonder if it started years ago. The TIA I had in 2016 could have triggered it I suppose, although the things that are making me wonder about when it started didn’t appear till 2013. That was the year I started...

The Devil is a Liar

It’s true . . . The Devil is a Liar. But you probably knew that. I’m pretty sure everyone has heard that Lucifer lies, and for the most part, I think Christians, even nominal ones, believe it. But something I’ve learned over the years is that humans don’t often...

More on Guns

So many folks have asked my opinion about guns lately. They did it on Facebook, so I’m not sure they meant it. I started to reply to two people, but decided to put it here instead so those who wanted to read it could, and perhaps I wouldn’t get...
