It’s Beginning to Look Alot Like Christmas…

...everywhere you go.

Merry Christmas! The celebration of the birth of Jesus is almost everywhere. There are lights, cameras, and plenty of action. It’s almost like a modern day grand announcement. It should be. We know that the date isn’t specific to the birth of Jesus, but rather a chosen day on which we celebrate. Perhaps it’s altogether […]

Deep Prayers…

...trusting God completely.

Some of us have deep concerns that need to be brought before the Lord. Today, again, I have been reminded of close friends that are trusting God for miracles. “He knows the storms that would our ways oppose, and tempers every wind that blows.” – Sarepta M. I. Henry It’s interesting, we know almost nothing […]

Major Norman Rock…

...solid.

Today, the family and friends of Major Norman Rock are coming together to celebrate his life and influence among us. Norm is one of the good ones, who lived and loved as he believed. His faith in Jesus is an established fact as he lived a life of sacrifice to worship the Lord in every […]

Deep Convictions…

...need a proper basis.

We’re witnessing deep convictions in our culture today. The Australians have recently expressed their convictions in a recent vote to legalize marriage of adults regardless of their gender. American football players are expressing their convictions on the field during the playing of the national anthem. Others in America are turning away from the nfl because […]

Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular…

...it's Christmas in New York.

For the first time in 25 years, Carolyn and I ventured into the “City that never sleeps” to see the Christmas Spectacular at the Radio City Music Hall. Before I write another word, you need to do this. It’s worth the trip to NYC. As always the production was the highest of standards with live […]

Family Time…

A casual reference through social media reveals extraordinary family occasions across the country. You can see table decorations and meals of all sorts. Some have spent time outdoors with kids, others […]

Merry Christmas!

...now we're ready.

Some Christmas decorations found their way into stores before Halloween and many more before Thanksgiving. Well, now it’s definitely time to break out the goods. Let the Christmas Carols play and the Manger scenes appear. The season has arrived. I’m a Merry Christmas person. I don’t care much for Happy Holidays. Respecting others, however, is […]

Night Before Thanksgiving…

...ready or not, here it comes.

‘Twas the night before Thanksgiving, when all through the house Only mother was stirring the soup, not for the mouse; The dishes were placed on the table with care, In hopes that the family soon would be there; The children were nestled, all snug in their beds, While visions of drum sticks danced in their […]

Caring for Each Other…

...a human quality.

Undoubtedly, we can all make a list of important people in our lives who have cared for us. The list might start with parents or family and go quickly to school teachers, ministers and the like. If we stretch the definition a little, we could include those who have shown us serious respect. That is, […]
