How Many Mondays Are There in One Week?

SNYDER3SNYDER3I must admit I am not up to date with all of the technology and gadgets today. Just when I think I have something mastered, they upgrade it or replace it was something that I cannot figure out. I guess that is why God gave grandfathers grandchildren.

It started on Continue reading

The Squirrel and Birds Controversy

Facebook

I have learned controversy is what life is really all about. Controversy means there is two sides, one side has no idea what the other side is thinking. Of course, there are those controversies when neither side is actually doing any thinking. That is what is called politics.

I had Continue reading

Church Bullies

Facebook

It’s pretty obvious if you’ve gone to church for any length of time that most people aren’t their true selves with others in church. It’s based on a culture of silent abuse. We’re told from the pulpit what we should believe, how we should behave and who we should be. Continue reading

Not Smart Enough to Be an Idiot

Facebook

In my experience, everybody has a slice of “idiot” somewhere hiding inside them. The trick is not to let it show itself at the wrong time.

Since everybody is an idiot to some degree or other, maybe we should not be so hard on people. After all, not everybody is Continue reading

Go Ahead – Make Dad’s Day

Facebook

Throughout the year, many days of celebration are tucked capriciously into the calendar. So much so, it is hard to find any day of the year where something or someone is not being observed, which has benefited the greeting card company, you can be sure. I am not positive, but Continue reading

Is Confession Really Good for the Soul?

Facebook

I have a confession to make. My first confession, of course, is that I do not always make confessions. Not that I don’t have things to confess, but I am rather slow in owning up to what I am doing and confessing it.

For example. When the Gracious Mistress of Continue reading

Ready, Set, Now Go for It

Facebook

As far as I’m concerned, summer is the best time of the year. I look forward to it while withstanding the chilly shivers of wintertime and the erratic damp weather of spring. Summer is my time of year!

I guess the reason it takes so long for summer to get Continue reading

Hold for Further Instructions

Facebook

Then God spoke to Noah, saying, “Go out of the ark, you and your wife, and your son’s and your sons’ wives with you.” Genesis 8:15

 

I hate waiting. Hate waiting in line. Hate sitting in traffic. Hate waiting to buy something till I have cash instead of just Continue reading

It Was Lights out at the Old Parsonage

Facebook

As long as I can remember, and at my age that does not go back very far, I have always been an early riser. I do not like to stay in bed any longer than I have to. So much I want to do and so little time I need Continue reading

My Amazing Fascination with Summer

Facebook

It comes as a great relief to me that winter is over and summer has stepped up and taken its rightful place. I really love summer. I am fascinated with all aspects associated with summer.

Some people, like the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, enjoy the aspects of winter, primarily Continue reading

Fruit Of The Spirit, pt. 5: Kindness

Facebook

Kindness as a fruit of the Spirit, like patience, didn’t immediately resonate with me. Not because kindness isn’t important, it is. Kindness is one of the ways we show that we care about others. But we all know people who can be kind and caring who are not Christians. People Continue reading

Don’t Give A Hoot!

Facebook

I started writing this column many years ago the primary focus on God’s Unconditional Love.  In every facet of each person’s life you can unearth some small need or minute deficit within their being that needs  love thrown into it.   Not one person is whole without God’s love.   Today I want to talk Continue reading

Why Mothers Would Make Good Politicians

Facebook

happy-mothers-dayIn thinking of Mother’s Day, I could not help but think about the mess our country is in right now. Not that messes remind me of mothers in particular, but honesty compels me to admit they are good at cleaning up messes. Moreover, the messes they cleanup are not their Continue reading

Fruit Of The Spirit: Patience

The spiritual importance of this one doesn’t immediately jump out at me. Sure, patience is a virtue, but how is it a fruit of the Spirit? When I look back at my own life, it begins to make some sense. I was very impatient growing Continue reading
