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 »

2nd Cup of Coffee, 10/17/17: IT MEMES TO ME

This is a popular message, yet it doesn’t go quite far enough.  This well-meant, focused relationship only keeps working if that level of concern is received.  A gift is meaningless if the one honored won’t open it. Can half a relationship survive?  Yes, because God’s been modeling that before us our entire lives.  Two things … 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 »

2nd Cup for 2/14/17: “WHO LOVES YA, BABY?”

Anyone can love somebody who loves them back.  We know that.  No big deal.  There are people whose personalities let them almost default to a devoted, loving attitude even while their hearts are lacerated and bruised.  One would need to know them well to discern the little ‘tells’ of their woundedness.  “Oh.  Then it’s easy … Continue reading »

Q(uiet) T(ime) M(usings) for 2/13/17: LOVE THAT WON’T GO AWAY

The devotional verse was waiting in my inbox this morning:  “Lord, I praise you for your steadfast love and faithfulness. Because of your great mercy, you are not one to hold back your steadfast love and faithfulness (Psalm 40:11).”  As usual, I checked the verse out in The Message.  “Now, God, don’t hold out on … Continue reading »

QTMs for 6/30/16: 5 THINGS HATE WILL DO

They used to tell me in vacation Bible school, “Only hate what God hates.” It intrigued me that God hates lima beans, being left, and Mrs. Muhlrennan’s nasty little Chihuahua.  I built a fairly sturdy theology on that revelation until I saw I had it backwards. I pled my case to no avail.  “No, Danny; … Continue reading »

How NOT To Celebrate One’s Anniversary

So I found this card that I, as a man, knew – KNEW – would dazzle her. It had an exotic exterior that could only be described as ‘Jungle Chique’.  Jungle.  Coffee.  Right? In the jungle clearing sat two leopards:  one, a slim, svelte female – smaller, naturally – and a boldly-put-together, powerfully-muscled leopard male-type dude … Continue reading »

QTMs for 5/6/16: THE MOTHER TIME BUILT

“You have the coolest parents!” Do you have any idea how desperately I tried to keep my friends from knowing my parents?  Really meeting them and letting them, like, talk?  Even the thought of my dad and mom’s dull, blunt monochrome style t-boning our world’s brilliance and sharded, bursting colors left me in paroxysms of horror, … Continue reading »
