Rest

Are you tired? Would you like to get under the covers and settle into a long, deep sleep? How nice that would be. In your bed, dreaming away. Warm. Cozy. Being physically renewed and re-energized. It is so important that our bodies find rest. Read more…



The Worst of the Worst

Who is the worst of the worst when it comes to mankind? There are lots of opinions. Some will say that if a person commits a certain type of crime then they fall into this category. Others will differ and say that it is not the commission of a crime, but the repeated commission of a particular offense which qualifies them to be “The Worst of the Worst”. Still others will say that what is in a person’s heart is the determining factor. Read more…

Surprise, Surprise

In last week’s blog, I shared with you the surprising reactions of Abraham and Job to tragedy. Today’s blog is called, “Surprise, Surprise” because I have another surprise for you. See if you can pick it out from the following verses: Read more…



Worship? Really?

“3 Early the next morning Abraham got up and loaded his donkey. He took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. When he had cut enough wood for the burnt offering, he set out for the place God had told him about. On the third day Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance. He said to his servants, “Stay here with the donkey while I and the boy go over there. We will worship and then we will come back to you.” Genesis 22:3-5 Read more…



All That For Me?

I routinely play against a Chess computer. It is difficult to beat a computer because it doesn’t make mistakes. Every so often I succeed. When I say every so often, I mean it, because I just won yesterday against a level which I have been playing at for seventeen months without a victory. How did it happen? Well, without getting into the all the chess details, at the end of the game I sacrificed several pieces in order to promote a pawn into a queen. It was worth it. Once the pawn became a queen, the victory followed. Read more…



Should We Listen to The Police”?

For those of you who are around my age, you are likely familiar with a band called “The Police”. They are no longer together, and Sting, their former lead singer, has gone on to have a very successful solo career.   I was listening to one of the songs from the Police the other day. It is called “Oh My God” and I considered some of the lyrics carefully. Here they are: Read more…



I’m Going To Add an Extra Hour if it Kills Me!

I am not really a “car-guy”. I know what makes up a car-guy. They love to talk about cars. They know the intricacies of what is “under the hood”. They go to car shows and ogle at all the new models, and talk about their dream cars. I like cars. When I buy one, I enjoy it. Especially if it is relatively new and looks nice. I try to keep them that way – ding free, washed, vacuumed, polished, etc. Sometimes I can’t keep up, but it is a goal of mine. Read more…



Grumblings, Mumblings, and Rumblings

Something is not right. No really, just listen. There are a lot of things wrong, and it doesn’t seem to matter who you talk to. Everyone has something to complain about.

 

For example:

 

  • The food service worker – “This oven’s temperature is off.”
  • The mailman – “Why do these people block their mailbox with their car.”
  • The police officer – “More paperwork? Really?” Read more…


There is No End in Sight

In terms of depth below the surface, the Kola Superdeep Borehole SG-3 retains the world record at 40,230 feet as the deepest artificial point on Earth. That is almost seven miles down. It is hard to fathom any hole penetrating that deeply into the earth. It is even harder to fathom the depths of God’s Word. What tells me this? Because this week I was blessed to spend three straight days studying the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Galatians. Read more…
