100-Word Stroll, 10/21/17: WHAT IS IT ABOUT “BY FAITH” YOU DON’T GET?

Naturalist and author Edward Abbey wrote, “Belief in the supernatural reflects a failure of the imagination.” No, it doesn’t.  It confirms it! Reformation Day this year is Tuesday, October 31st.  What sparked the fire in Martin Luther’s soul, back in 1517, was when he read the prophet Habakkuk’s statement:  “The righteous will live by his … Continue reading »

2nd Cup of Coffee for 10/19/17: 4 WAYS TO PUT SOME PUNCH IN YOUR LOVE LIFE

Readers make the best writers.  I’ve read that. When you read a lot of the good, challenging, uplifting kind of stuff, you can’t help being helped by it. I read this morning: “Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly.” ~ 1 Corinthians 13:13, The Message “In the end, only three things matter:  how much … Continue reading »

QTMs for 10/14/17: THROUGH = HUMBLE

Given a choice?  I’ll take OVER OR AROUND for $400, Alex. I’ve been through. I know the wisdom of acceding to God’s timing and will in leading me through things in this life.  I’ve lived long enough I do NOT go hunting for more through.  If it’s all the same to the Lord, I’m through … Continue reading »

2nd Cup PSA for 10/12/17: I REALLY DO PUNCTUATE AND DIVIDE

What you’re seeing published on Facebook is not appearing as I’ve typed it.   Whether something glitchy on WordPress’s writing page, or a FB quirk, the articles I work diligently to make readable are seemingly coming to you crammed together as if I were a fledgling writer.  For that I’m sorry.   What I write means more … Continue reading »

2nd Cup for 10/10/17: MAN UP! SOMEBODY’S PRAYING FOR YOU

You can do more after you’ve prayed, but you won’t get much that’s worth anything done until you’ve prayed. I am praying for my sons, grandson and great-grandson today.  My legacy to each of you:  to faithfully pray for those who look to your spiritual leadership.  I don’t expect perfection from you because I haven’t been able … Continue reading »

QTMs for 9/14/17: SANTA AIN’T THE ONLY ONE WATCHIN’ YOU!

It’s a bad idea to assume because you don’t see Him that God’s not paying attention. Jeremiah 1:12 – “I am watching to see that My word is fulfilled.”  Twice, He asks Jeremiah, “So, what do you see?” and waits for Jer’s response before proceeding.  From the passage it seems clear that God holds me accountable … Continue reading »

QTMs for 9/11/17: THE CASE For BACKSHAVING

Stubborn anything is rarely good, and settling for “good enough” isn’t much better. I sat in SportClips, being trimmed up by a new stylist.  In a daily environment inundated with data and information, I’m comfortable with silence.  Hairdressers are not. “That’s great cologne.”  Possible responses:  “That’s blatantly sexist”, currently popular, if vapid.  “Thanks, but I’m … Continue reading »

QTMs for 9/4/17: “WHERE DREAMS ARE BORN . . .”

“Come with me to where dreams are born, and time is never planned.” ~~~ Peter Pan   Oh!  In other words, retirement.  😎  Nope.  Not being funny at all.  Mere lack of money is no reason to stop dreaming.  Do an online search relative to how many people have made amazing, lasting impacts on their world … Continue reading »

100-Word Stroll for 8/31/17: 3 THINGS GOD’S EXPECTING OF ME

Isn’t it odd to ask God questions while never expecting answers? The Bible’s clear that He’s infinite in knowledge, and knows our thoughts before we speak them, so is there ever a rhetorical query when talking with God?  Seeking them or not, we should expect God to answer any question posed to Him, no matter what … Continue reading »
