“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”

No escape from the ICU

I was reading a Washington Post article this morning by Lenny Bernstein and Dan Keating, and it was about how even after Covid patients are released from the ICU, they’re not really in a much better place. They pointed out how it usually takes months to not only recover from Covid, but also to recoverContinue reading “No escape from the ICU”

You had big eagles the whole time?

I was watching “Lord of the Rings: Return of the King” recently, and an old idea came back to me. Why didn’t they just get the eagles to drop the ring in the lava??? They had big eagles that could have dropped it in, or dropped Gandalf at the entrance to the fiery pit, butContinue reading “You had big eagles the whole time?”

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”

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”

Out of focus

We live in a world that demands our focus. We have to focus on our little screens and our tiny keyboards; we have to focus on the traffic; we have to stick to plans and rules and guidelines; we have to focus on our health and our weight and our posture and, and, and. OneContinue reading “Out of focus”

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!”

If everybody jumped off a bridge…

It’s a very strange thing that there are still people that believe the vaccines for Covid are a bad idea. I wonder if it comes from that old saying “If everyone jumped off a bridge, would you too?” The old answer to that is supposed to be “No, I would think for myself,” but thatContinue reading “If everybody jumped off a bridge…”
