Brian’s new toy arrived just in time for our sons and grandsons to have a blast driving it around the neighborhood last week. It is the perfect vehicle for scooting here and there, hauling kids with wet towels to and from the pool, and simple joy rides.
Of course, the grandsons both had a turn driving it, but the big boys had the most fun with it. Since the golf cart had to stay on our neighborhood streets, we always knew they were never too far away. There was only so far they could go.
The physical golf cart came with limitations, and I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to suggest that we, as Christians, put similar limitations on our continue reading here
So much is lost when a family member or loved one passes away. Voices. Love. Comfort. Familiarity. Routine. Wisdom . Stories. And, yes, even recipes.
My friend Becky is very much aware of this; her precious mother is in that stage of hospice care where pain medications gradually increase and her mother’s presence gradually decreases. The reality of what is soon to be lost looms large on the horizon.
In the face of this coming loss, Becky started a Face Book page where she is uploading favorite family recipes. When Becky visits with her continue reading here
This is ridiculously embarrassing, but last week (after living in Texas for over two years) I got lost coming home from Target! I made one wrong turn and I had no idea where I was. It’s not like I haven’t been to Target a few times since moving here, it’s that I don’t keep reading here
Listen up, Christians, there are some things we need to learn about preparing our children, our leaders, and ourselves for the spiritual battles we will inevitably face and the United States Marine Corps is a really good teacher!
You may recall that I wrote about my sister’s son, Zach, leaving for boot camp last summer. Well, the next big event on his agenda is The Crucible. After watching a WGN video depicting the final events of The Crucible (watch it here) I have to say, I am praying for my nephew like never before!
Behind the dark sleep-deprived eyes of these young Marines one can see continue here
Are. You. Kidding. Me?
Seriously, I know squirrels will find seeds, and I know birdfeeders are a great place to find them; but this birdfeeder — I thought for sure this seed cage was out of reach! Honestly, look where it is hanging!
It’s twelve feet off the ground, up a concrete wall, and find more here
It has been said that there will come a time when it is not the inerrancy or the infallibility of the Bible that we question but its sufficiency. I dare say, if we have not arrived at that place, it seems the door is open and we are walking across the threshold.
“Oh, no, not me!” We proclaim. “The Bible is find more here
My friend was amazed that I noticed her new kitchen cabinet knobs last week. She’s just now moving and I dropped in on her unannounced and her kitchen looked, well, like someone in the middle of a move. Somehow, I managed to see beyond the clutter and I noticed her new knobs.
Maybe it really isn’t terribly odd; having recently moved, I am not distracted by empty boxes and clutter, and I have been in her kitchen several times so I was familiar with it and the knobs simply hadn’t been there before. How could I not see them?
This is how I want to train my eye when it comes to the things of God. Just like I know my friend’s kitchen, I want to know the Bible so thoroughly that when I hear something false, continue here
