“…I left a lasting… BAD impression. I admit…I say… and do, some of the dumbest things… sometimes…”

Well…. ABNORMAL… is my NORMAL:  I’ve always been thought of as being a bit on the ‘weird’ side… (Ask my wife and children)… and have come to accept… that my ‘abnormality’ is actually my NORMAL.  And, it fits me pretty well.  Being abnormal has taken me pretty far in this most confusing world. Might I […]

“…Just LISTEN…. we are not alone….”

There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community…. As told to us […]

“…When our time is complete here on earth…. Will God recognize us as a believer… in Him… or…?”

Bad People: And, what happens to them … Matthew 13:36-43 – When Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.  He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son […]

“…It’s so easy to be kind… and so hard to be unkind…”

Good FREE stuff:  Not many of us have the resources to ‘give’ very much to anyone.  We’re too busy trying to carve out a slice of life for ourselves… support our family, tend to our career, or education… or for some… just surviving.  Helping others could be ‘very difficult.’ Then, there’s church… and the minister […]

“…Just THINK… how much better off I’d be… if I was listening to ‘others’ … all those years, rather than ‘listening to myself’…”

Can you hear me now?  When we ignore what others … and what they have to say… it’s the same as us saying… ‘You don’t count… but I do.’  We are saying that our thoughts, words, and deeds… are more important than you… and what you have to say.’  You are not important. James 1:19-21- […]

“…God intends for us to ‘share’ His gifts… with each other…”

The Apostle Paul tells us in his letter to the Ephesians to… Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ…  God forgave you.  Ephesians 4:31-32 So… what does this mean to us […]

Mother’s: “…They not only… have a Mother’s Love, but a…”

Happy Mother’s Day… Mother’s Day has always been my favorite day that we get to celebrate… not just… ‘Our own Mother’, but also… the mother of our children.  Mother’s Day represents who they really are, what they represent, and what is so obvious for others to see… and to emulate. To all of us… those […]

“…Behind every adversity is an OPPORTUNITY to SERVE God, and your fellow-man…”

Adversity:  We ALL are SUBJECT to enduring hardships… one kind or another… and, from time to time.  None of us is immune.  It’s akin… to death… it’s going to happen.  Adversity appears in all areas of our life.  Be it… business, social, family… or spiritual.  For me… Adversity has been in EVERY avenue of my […]

“…Even EVIL people know right from wrong…”

Even evil people know right from wrong.  Unless one is a ‘very sick person’…. We all know the difference between right and wrong.  There are those, of course, who are so ‘totally possessed’ by the devil… that they can no-longer distinguish between right and wrong.  For my purposes, today… I am referring to those… who […]

“…Many Blessings, to all…. As we seek to BELIEVE… without SEEING…”

John 20:19-31 – Jesus Appears to His Disciples On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!”  After he said this, he showed them his hands and […]
