Oh, Dem Golden Tones Of Silence

Facebook

Last Saturday evening the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and Yours Truly were reclining on the living room sofa enjoying our evening cup of coffee. It is a wonderful way to unwind after a week of activity. No matter how hectic the week was, a few quiet moments with a Continue reading

The Skinny Mirror

Facebook

There is a mirror in our home that I am especially fond of. My daughter and I have dubbed it “the skinny mirror”. This mirror seems to magically erase ten pounds, so that places that are a bit too round appear sleeker and firmer. A glance in this mirror when Continue reading

A Bug on the Plate Is Worth How Much?

Facebook

Did you ever have a smile on your face that no matter what you did you could not wipe it off?

Well, that is quite a regular occurrence with me. But this past week was a “smile-on-the-face” to beat all “smiles-on-the-face.” My only regret is that I did not do Continue reading

What Rubs Off

Facebook

As my teenager comes in the door and bounds up the stairs the first thing out of his mouth is, “Do I smell pasta and meatballs?”.  The smell is so distinctive he doesn’t really need to ask, but he is excited to confirm that his favorite supper is on the Continue reading

The Godly Kind of Faith

By

Roman Bej

Do you have the “Godly Kind of Faith”? Sometimes it takes a sad occurrence for us to find out.

People react to tragedies in different ways. I heard about a woman who stopped attending church because she lost her daughter to cancer Continue reading

Well Done

Facebook

Someone recently shared a beautiful story about what they witnessed at a young man’s funeral. I was given permission to share this story in the hopes that it would encourage others. Losing a loved one can be one of the most emotionally painful things we can experience. It’s especially painful when Continue reading

Please, Just Let Me Grow Old!

Facebook

One of the New Year’s resolutions I made, which the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage reminded me, is to take a day off and just relax.

That is a rather hard thing for me to do, especially every week.

The first week in January, I was busy about my business Continue reading

What Time Is It Really?

Facebook

Time is a strange thing, if you ask me. Even though I wear a wristwatch every day, most of the time I do not know what time it really is. And for that matter, how important is time?

It came to me in a strange way this past week. I Continue reading

The Only Exercise I Get Is Shivering in the Cold

Facebook

I am not one to complain, at least when anybody is listening. The greatest blessing I have in life is that nobody really listens to me. Therefore, I can say whatever I want to say and nobody will hear me.

Well, I used to believe that. Certain things have happened Continue reading

I’m In Leftover Heaven

Facebook

I do confess that I enjoy the holiday seasons just like everybody else. One of the main ingredients I enjoy more than anything else is the holiday cuisine. At our house, I must duly confess, it is the best.

The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is the cooking queen when Continue reading

Back in the Saddle Again…and Again

Facebook

This is not my first rodeo when it comes to New Years. I have ridden this Bronco so many times I cannot remember how many. Well, I can remember, but I am not going to let that slip. Something to do with a New Year’s Resolution.

Back in the days Continue reading

As The Old Year Fades, So Does My Memory

Facebook

Memory is a very tricky thing, at least for me it is. Looking back over a year’s span of activity, my memory seems to pick and choose what it remembers. After all, I do not have the brain capacity I once had.

Often some old-timer will moan about how much Continue reading

The Year Slipped into the Silence of the Night

Facebook

No time in the year is busier than the Christmas holiday season. Under normal circumstances, it would not be too bad, except for the fact that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is in charge.

Not complaining, mind you, but she is in charge 365 days out of the year. Continue reading

Lift your eyes up to the sky, for a Savior has come. His glory, righteousness and might are unmatched, yet His yoke is gentle and light. He came so that we might have life more abundantly. He willingly laid down His life and endured the punishment that was meant for Continue reading

Behold, the Christmas Grinch Cometh

Facebook

I never have to look at the calendar to know when the Christmas holiday season is approaching. As soon as I lay down my fork on Thanksgiving Day, the battle drums begin to roll. Somebody, who apparently does not have much of a life, takes a pot shot at the Continue reading
