“Religious” Exemption

Oh, what a world we live in. We’ve already got Jesus busy helping us get rich; and we’ve got Him helping our team win the big game; and we’ve got Him siding with us on our political views; and now we want Him to be on our side against government and business mandates. You know,Continue reading ““Religious” Exemption”

Travis Scott

I must confess that when I first heard of the incident at the Travis Scott concert I only had one thought on my mind. “Who the heck is Travis Scott?” I get that I’m older now and that it makes sense that I don’t know all of the popular names, but it seems like IContinue reading “Travis Scott”

The God Bubble

Today I am writing one of the most important blogs I will ever write. I’ve talked before in a blog about how God once answered my prayer immediately, but today I’m going to write about a time when God saved me and my family before we even knew that we needed saving. I’m going toContinue reading “The God Bubble”

A cold walk

On my morning walk today I passed a guy who was wearing only jeans and a light sweater. It was 51 degrees and raining and very windy this morning. I’m not sure if he was homeless, but he definitely was having a tough start to his day. He had to be freezing. I wanted toContinue reading “A cold walk”

Hey pal, can you spare a billion?

I’m very happy to hear that Washington is working to finalize a “billionaire’s tax.” Ever since I first heard there was such a thing as a “billionaire” I’ve thought that was a ridiculous thing for society to have. And we have 600 billionaires in this country! How is that even possible?? No one needs orContinue reading “Hey pal, can you spare a billion?”

Happy Halloween!

For Halloween fun I decided to remind everyone of a couple of verses in Matthew. It’s Matthew 27:52-53. “The tombs also were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised. After His resurrection they came out of the tombs and entered the holy city and appeared to many.” ……………… ZOMBIES!Continue reading “Happy Halloween!”

Magnolia grenades

The other day my 12-year-old was talking about how some early childhood memories stick with her, and she was specifically talking about the color song for the color yellow. “Y-E-LL-O-W spells yellow! Y-E-LL-O-W spells yellow!” She went on to say that when she now goes to spell that word that little part of the songContinue reading “Magnolia grenades”

An entire state – gone!

Earlier this year I decided to try to compare the number of Covid deaths in our country to counties in Alabama. I tried to get people to picture entire counties of people vanishing. Now, I’m sorry to say, I’ve moved on to states. We have now had 714,000 people die of Covid in this country….Continue reading “An entire state – gone!”

First place!

I’m running a 5k road race this weekend, and preparing for it reminded me of a time I was in first place in a race. I’ve never been fast enough to win a big 5k road race, but one day in the Fall of 1997 or 1998 I got it in my head that IContinue reading “First place!”

What a God!

I decided this morning that I needed some inspiration from the Bible, but I didn’t know what passage I wanted to read, so I put my thumb into a random part of the Bible(I did cheat a little bit, because I made sure it was New Testament) and then opened it up and without lookingContinue reading “What a God!”
