“…When you left us today, you took our hearts with you; but the good news is…you took all of ours…with you…”

Friendship   Most men find friendship, But, best friends, well…they’re few. So, finding you… as a life-long friend, Like all good things in life, There with suddenness, God’s gift flew.   When you most need them, God provides you a good friend, To share life’s ups and downs, Even a drink, or two.   We […]

“…I admit to have broken some number of the ‘The Ten Commandments’…. but…”

We humans, seemingly, have this uncontrollable desire to complicate those things that are really simple. One such issue would be living by the Ten Commandments. Most of us (the more fortunate ones) are taught by our parents how to conduct our lives such that we can have as “easier path” into Heaven. I defend this […]

“… Not knowing us, and never to see us again…she seized an opportunity to express “unconditional love…”

LOVE…. My bride and I are attending an out-of-town-wedding of our Grandson, and while here, we came upon a “Street Festival” and stopped to enjoy the fun. We approached a “bakery stand,” and my wife picked out a bakery item, and turned to me, indicating to pay the lady for the bakery item. I pulled […]

“…We are approaching a time when, we the consumer, the customer, the VOTER …will have to say… “Enough is enough? V-O-T-E the rascals O-U-T.”

Corruption to the very CORE: What “nationwide organization” lacks the very basic core attributes necessary to be successful? They spend wastefully. Their R & D is faulty. They lie and miss-represent to their customers. They always pass increased costs of production down to the consumer. They, seemingly, have an unlimited (but unwilling) source of investors. […]

“… They’re leaders are corrupt to the very core, and yet they’re seldom fired. They can steal from their organization and get away with it. They break all their own rules, and are not held accountable…”

“…I would be remiss if I didn’t seize this opportunity to “thank all of you,” for taking the time to read my gibberish ( disguised as WISDOM)…”

To My Friends, Subscribers, Readers, and Family: For the last several months, I’ve had a terrible time with my website (BrOOKS-of-WISDOM), as it has not wanted to be very cooperative. I won’t bore you with the details, but the bottom line is: I’ve been making my “daily postings” as usual, every day, but find that […]

“…There’s nothing in the Bible that says you have to ‘go to church’…I can watch it on TV…”

I’m not trying to get anyone “riled-up,” but… I’m BOTHERED by those who “preach” the word of God, yet… you NEVER see them in Church. They don’t feel good. Their bones ache. They can watch it on TV. There’s nothing in the Bible that says you have to “go to church.” I’ll do it next […]

“…We have the ‘freedom’ to do whatever we darn-well please …or, Do We..?”

CHOICE…do we really have a choice?  Well, both, in the literal and biblical sense… we do.  First, we are made “in the Image of God.” This, alone, would give us “free-will.”  Then in Genesis: 16-17 – And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But […]

“…Maybe”… my POINT was clouded by my poor choice of words used to defend my view…”

COMMITMENT…. I, and a group of friends, were talking about COMMITMENT the other day, and one of them asked me if I would commit to doing something.  I said “no.”  He said; “you mean you don’t want to do it?”  I said, “yes, I was going to do it, but my making a commitment to […]

“…For me…It’s really more of, liking my neighbor….like myself…”

STAKE….Steak…. I love the English language…. For the most part, we have a number of words that sound the same, but mean entirely different things.  Steak….it means just one thing… meat.  STAKE, on the other hand, could mean “a stake in the ground;” or having a “stake” in a transaction or event. The word that […]
