Quiet Time Musings for 7/31/14: IF IT HASN’T COST YOU ANYTHING IT ISN’T FAITH

      All those cute image quotes about faith?  They once had skin on ’em; skin slick with sweat, skin covering up a vascular system with pulse pounding through it, skin encasing an increased heart rate and the sobering frisson of real fear . . . The light at life’s intersection just turned yellow:  “Enter … Continue reading »

Quiet Time Musings for 7/26/14: WHO CRIES FOR MARKO?

  He was a street waif, abandoned by those who no longer cared enough to feed him and offer him a place to call home. His right ear had a permanent tear where he’d just missed being killed by another who wanted what he’d found to eat. From an early age his teeth and gums … Continue reading »

Quiet Time Musings for 7/24/14: DO THE RIGHT THING

I’ve never been more thoroughly disgusted. The power-hungry, money-grubbing, status-sensitive men and women presently occupying most positions of both bureaucratic and elected office are breathtaking in their eagerness to lie, cheat and steal to protect their turf. For ‘turf’, read ‘backside’, be it skinny or ample. There’s a sick, cynical ballet being performed before the nation’s … Continue reading »

Quiet Time Musings for 7/21/14: GOD’S “WOWSERS” GRIP

The ‘Net is a pretty cool place. I asked, “What’s the hardest substance known to man?” wurtzite boron nitride triple-bonded carbon atoms, known as carbyne graphene . . . and on and on it goes.  The more we know, the more we know we don’t know as much as we thought we knew.  Whichever of them it … Continue reading »

Quiet Time Musings for 7/16/14: PRETTY SURE IT’S REAL

“From the start You held a place in my heart, a place that no one else could fill; sin kept your Spirit from working in me–I couldn’t look at life honestly. . .Now, I’m forgiven!  Now I have a reason for livin’!  Jesus keeps givin’ and givin’–givin’ ’til my heart overflo–o–ows—“ Looks ridiculous. Me.  Bobbing my … Continue reading »

Quiet Time Musings for 7/15/14: GOD’S DONE SOME STUFF, NOW…

I don’t remember being picked first for anything. I might’ve been, once or twice back there.  I just don’t remember it.  I was pretty much in the “Mm.  You’ll do” category.  Natch, there’s a lot more to the back story of my life just as with yours.  You’ll have to wait for a book or … Continue reading »

Quiet Time Musings for 7/14/14: SAVED BY BUFFET

From the cross, Jesus never looked over the crowd and said, “I’ll save him and her and that family over there and you.  No, not you–yeah, you.” I awoke this morning considering the excellent, thoughtful message about baggage from our pastor yesterday morning.  As often happens, the lyrics to a song I remember from high school … Continue reading »

Quiet Time Musings for 7/11/14: “YOU HAVE NO IDEA. . .”

A wise man once said nothing. Acting on the premise that there is always more I can learn from others when I listen instead of talk, I practiced that same wisdom this morning. Remember our visit Wednesday morning?  Probably no longer than I did. Don’t feel bad. Just grab your java and step into some … Continue reading »

Quiet Time Musings for 7/10/2014: THE BATTLE of CREATIVE CREEK

Ever feel like no matter how hard you try the deck’s stacked against you? You know what you want to do, but you wind up doing just the opposite? We’ve just established you’re human.  Good on ya.  Point is, we’ve all experienced it–the desire to do one thing but finding it way too easy to … Continue reading »

Quiet Time Musings for 7/9/14: OH, YES, YOU CAN

“I don’t see how that’s ever going to happen.” “No way!” “Hunh-UH!  That’s IMPOSSIBLE.” The angel said it to Mary.  “With God nothing is impossible.” “Get serious.  Nothing?“ Remember, the one saying that is a spirit-being who spends time around God, watching Him work on a regular basis.  I’m just telling you what he said, … Continue reading »
