I’m Back

Facebook

Hey all I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I’ve been a bit preoccupied lately and haven’t been around much. Well, I got a bit busy with things. I had to prioritize a lot of my life situations. Unfortunately, since most of Believers Bay functions on autopilot I had to Continue reading

Those Annoying Sounds of Silence

Facebook

It was in the 60s when Simon and Garfunkel recorded their famous song, “The Sounds of Silence.”

I must confess that I do enjoy what I know of as “The Sounds of Silence.” Nothing is more relaxing than sitting back with a cup of coffee and enjoying the silence as Continue reading

My Sneeze Is No Gentle Breeze

Facebook

It has been days (or has it been years) since I have enjoyed a sneeze free day. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage told me it is simply that time of the year and I should learn to deal with it. “After all,” she opined, “you’re not going to die.” Continue reading

If “All Things Are Possible,” Why Can’t I Balance My Checkbook?

Facebook

For me, the most terrible time of each month is the day our bank statement comes. We commonly call it BSS (Bank Statement Syndrome). I don’t know why it is, but I have trouble getting the parsonage checkbook to balance with the monthly bank statement.

That ominous document intimidates me Continue reading

I Didn’t Win $750 Million

Facebook

During a recent lottery shindig, everybody was watching to see who was going to win all that money. Even I got all caught up in the excitement and was on the edge of my seat too.

“Why,” the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage said, “are you so interested in that Continue reading

Can These Bones Live?

Facebook

“He asked me, ‘Son of Man, can these bones live?’ I said, ‘Sovereign Lord, you alone know.'” Ezekiel 37:3 NIV

Rejection after rejection and heartache after heartache, I felt pieces of me fall away. Every mistake and willful act of disobedience carved more pieces off of me until I was Continue reading

Celebration Has Become a Way of Life for Me

Facebook

I have just celebrated my birthday, my wife’s birthday and our wedding anniversary. I am not sure how old I am or how long we have been married and I won’t even go to my wife’s age. I’m old enough to know better.

I have long past the idea of Continue reading

The Endless Flow of Ink

Facebook

This past week I had my yearly visit with my doctor. Believe me, it was no vacation but it did vacate the cash in my wallet. It was not the loss I needed at the time.

It is amazing about my doctor. He knows the exact cash I have in Continue reading

A Delightful Ride – Accompanying the Master Through Tough Terrain

Facebook

“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset
about many things, but only one thing is needed.”
Luke 10:41-42 (NIV)

I’m a Martha, I admit it. I’m overly concerned with accomplishing tasks and doing them well. Whether I’m at home, at work, or at church, I take my Continue reading

A Discount by Any Other Name

Facebook

I find too often I get all caught up with the busyness of life that I forget some things. For example, last week the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I had birthdays.

Our birthdays are only two days apart, which is convenient for me. My birthday is first, and Continue reading

Why I Keep Trying

Facebook

“For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again.” Proverbs 24:16 NIV

Rejected again but not by God. I won’t lie, rejection hurts. It bruises the ego and breaks the heart. As a writer, I’m faced with rejection all the time. You never really get used to rejection, you Continue reading

As Summers Go, This One Is Going

Facebook

During my high school career I was no thespian, however, I could act the fool when called upon. My friend was the thespian and starred in our senior high school play, “Finian’s Rainbow.” One of the musical numbers was, “When I’m not near the girl I love,
I love the Continue reading

I See Giants

Facebook

“They said, ‘The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size. We saw the Nephilim there (the descendents of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes and we looked the same to them.’” Numbers Continue reading
