Brothers and sisters, I urge you to get in the Word, stay in the Word, and pray often daily. We live in perilous times. Two weeks ago we had a guest preacher at church. He gave a good sermon, and gave a warning about the current moral, spiritual, and political climate today: "It's not going … Continue reading Not Going to Get Any Better!
It's bad enough that Americans who "look Asian" are being attacked, Jews are being attacked, blacks are being attacked, but now the primary target has become white people. The fact is, we're all targets of the Critical Race Theory, as well as Critical Social Justice. These two ideologies have all the pillars of the Communist … Continue reading The Real Parasite
Everone knows what a bucket list is; that list of things you want to do before you "kick the bucket." A movie a few years ago with that name starring Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson was a rather irreverent view of dying on one hand, but a realistic view on the other.

I considered a couple of things as I watched this tree out our patio door. … Continue reading Ice Lessons

There have been moments of unbelievable despair, like we witnessed at the Capitol, when everything seems to come apart at the seams. Those are the hours when the hopelessness we see looks nothing like the nation we thought we knew. Yet, in … Continue reading Heaven is NOT Shaken
This past week I have been discouraged. Tired of the constant barrage of "bad news" around the world from the pandemic to the protesters to the riots. Conflicting reports of what happens, who said what, predictions of both good and bad in the economy. It's been getting to me, along with some personal trials and … Continue reading Saved Alone
2020 has been a year of questions, and most of them are about the pestilence that is walking the entire world, crossing all the boundaries that make us all different on the outside.
