The Smile… For good, or for EVIL?

It is said that the smile is part of a ‘universal language.’ Generally meaning…. all is well… hope it’s OK with you.  Or, by Webster’s definition:  a pleased, kind, even scornful, or amused facial expression, typically with the corners of the mouth turned up and the front teeth exposed. But there are those who SMILE for […]

The End is NEAR… What?

No… not the ‘End of Time’… but rather… the end of 2018.  As for the End of Time… that’s anybody’s guess.  The Bible tells us that it is near… but then, God’s TIME is different than ‘our time.’  His time…well… It is… what it is. But, as for 2018…we all know … it’s history. How […]

“…Don’t just listen to me… rather: Listen to Jesus, speaking to you… through your heart.

Jesus said to his disciples: “Beware that your hearts do not become drowsy from carousing and drunkenness and the anxieties of daily life, and that day catch you by surprise like a trap.  For that day will assault everyone who lives on the face of the earth.  Be vigilant at all times and pray that […]

“…What’s in your wallet…?”

What’s in your wallet? Ephesians 5:6… “Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient.” All of us, at one time or another, had someone try to ‘suck us into sin’… something wrong, improper, unethical….or dishonorable.  It all started when satan successfully tempted […]

“…Husbands… LOVE your wives. Wives… LOVE your husbands…”

The ‘Wicked Tongue.’ I’m thinking of the hearings regarding the Supreme Court nominee… and how appropriate this scripture might be.  Seemingly, to me, it DEFEATS all that St. Paul warns us against in his letter to the Ephesians… What do you think?  Ephesians 5:1-9 …Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in […]

“…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 […]
