100-Word Stroll for 4/15/17: “AND MORE!”

Praying for others:  “And, Lord, take care of their needs.”  It’s almost automatic.  Yet I’m thinking I need to start amending that.  Refill your cup and walk with me . . . There’s no greater privilege than to pray for someone.  No power between Heaven and Hell can stop a Christian’s praying from being heard … Continue reading »

100-Word Stroll for 4/14/17: WHAT ABOUT THE REST?

Escaping all crowds is impossible.  Thinking like them, however, is your own choice.  Grab your coffee and walk with me . . . The crowd included cynics who’d been watching and listening all their lives to the roiling, foaming surf of Jewish politics and Roman oppression. cool, sophisticated, professional Christ-followers whose subdermal faith could be equally at … Continue reading »

100-Word Stroll for 4/13/17: CAN YOU SPARE SOME CHANGE TODAY?

I pray I can.  Grab your coffee and walk with me . . . On the way to the borrowed room where they’d dine Passover style with Jesus, the guys were comparing opinions about who of them deserved the corner office with big windows.  3 years, and they didn’t get it.  Or Him. Recently read:  … Continue reading »

QTMs for 4/12/17: THE PASSION of the CHRIST(ian)

“I’d be more open to being a Christian if I saw more who call themselves that acting like it.” I know.  We’re all a bit weary of everyone’s excuses for playing fast and loose with their souls.  After all, we likely used a bunch of ’em ourselves before realizing the true dimensions of God’s love and making … Continue reading »

4/6/17: I’M JUST NOT DOING WELL TODAY

I almost copped out and made Granger say this.  Authors do that.  They impose the task of saying unpleasant, hard things on one or more of their characters as if that somehow makes the bitter less so. Well, I can’t.  Won’t. I’m a mess today.  I’m grieving. A week ago Babycakes and I attended the … Continue reading »

4/6/17: DISPISED? REJECTED?

Just read from an unknown writer: “I might have been worthless to you, but I am of great worth to myself.  Honestly, I don’t need someone who only sees the good in me. I need someone who’s seen the bad and still wants me.” Link this with, “Be kind to everyone you meet; all of … Continue reading »

QTMs for 4/4/17: BETTER THAN AVERAGE

In this morning’s devotion:  Champions do daily what average men do occasionally.  That got me thinking.  I’m not the best at anything.  I loved Air Force radar work and consistently earned Combat Crew badges, yet washed out of the FAA academy.  I did my best as a pastor, loved preaching and teaching, yet repeatedly wound … Continue reading »
