It happened

After almost 650,000 deaths in the U.S., Covid has finally crept into my world. I just had the first person that I knew well die of Covid this week, and it feels just like I thought it would. Awful. I had not talked to this person in a long time, but he was a bigContinue reading “It happened”

Best movie prayer

As a Christian, I like to look for great spiritual messages in popular culture. Often times they are few and far between, but for that reason when I find one, it is usually special and stays with me over time. I found one of my favorite prayers in an action movie about vikings of allContinue reading “Best movie prayer”

Two months!

Two months ago we had 4000 new Covid cases in the U.S., and I was like okay….pretty soon we’ll be down into the hundreds and then it will basically be over! I’ve got to stop saying things like that to myself. Yesterday we had 187,000 new cases in the U.S. How do you go fromContinue reading “Two months!”

Ralph from Spiritual Laws

It’s been a while since I did a blog and a while since I did a Ralph Waldo Emerson blog, so here goes… This is from “Spiritual Laws”… “A little consideration of what takes place around us every day would show us that a higher law than that of our will regulates events; that ourContinue reading “Ralph from Spiritual Laws”

What’s the hurry?

I was reminded recently as I was passed by multiple motorists on Highway 72 in northeast Alabama that one of the great things about being a Christian is that we never again have to be in a hurry. When we die, we get to go to paradise with our Creator for eternity. We get toContinue reading “What’s the hurry?”

Yesterday was the 7th anniversary of Robin Williams death, and it still kind of hurts. I remember the shock and all the tributes and I remember being really mad at times. I was mad that he did all of those movies that dealt with suicide and suicidal thoughts and strong emotions, and then killed himselfContinue reading “Robin Williams”

A HUNDRED BUCKS!?!

Did I hear this right? They’re starting to pay people a hundred dollars to get the vaccine?!? I got mine in May. Can I get another one please? Can I get several other ones please? What a crazy world we live in! Paying people to get a free thing that prevents death. Maybe I canContinue reading “A HUNDRED BUCKS!?!”

Figs!

One thing I look forward to about the end of July is that the figs on our fig tree start to ripen. I don’t even really like figs that much, but I like the idea of a bunch of fruit being readily accessible each morning without any work. I didn’t have to water the treeContinue reading “Figs!”

Jesus the athlete?

I enjoyed watching the Olympics yesterday. I watched some skateboarding, and basketball, and gymnastics, and triathlon, but it didn’t dawn on me until this morning… I wonder if Jesus was an athlete, … what kind would He have been? He would have had good endurance from all the walking everywhere and climbing mounts to giveContinue reading “Jesus the athlete?”
