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.

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 »

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 »

Granger: A MIRACLE ReMIX – 8/27/17

“Dear Granger, “I’m getting tired of bravely singing, ‘This Little Light of Mine’.  Why’s mine the only light I’m seeing?  I guess I expect a little darkness now and then but when did believing in God start meaning you have to move way up north of the Arctic Circle? “Regarding the whole faith thing, here’s … Continue reading »

QTMs for 8/22/17: THE CROSS ECLIPSES ALL

Sometimes we do things that resonate in ways we never envision. Yesterday, millions of people used every sort of eye-protective device imaginable to observe the long-heralded total eclipse.  Many invested money they didn’t have to spend, traveling for days they really didn’t have to give, to make the trip to places in the country where they … Continue reading »

QTMs for 8/21/17: THE WELCOME CAT IS OUT

I walk because I can. Walking was something, I admit, I took for granted, once I learned how.  Who gives two hisses about walking? People who have faced being denied that freedom.  I’m one of those people.  So, yeah–I celebrate the ability to maintain balance, to walk into each new weekday morning with the same … Continue reading »

It takes … Continue reading »
