2nd Cup of Coffee, 8/15/19: CAN I DRIVE?
Sunday morning we were singing: “We fall down, we lay our crowns, at the feet of Jesus The greatness of mercy and love, at the feet of Jesus And we cry, “Holy, holy, holy…” We cry, “Holy, holy, holy…” We cry, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lamb.” The setting is There. We who have walked with … Continue reading
Q(uiet) T(ime) M(using)s for 7/28/17: 2 WAYS TO THROW BACK FLOUNDERING FAITH
Your life as a Christian should make nonbelievers question their disbelief in God. I’m not talking about your philosophy of religion or your preferences for worship or your favorite spiritual guru. Your philosophies and beliefs and membership in this or that church don’t amount to dryer lint if you don’t have a personal relationship with … Continue reading
QTMs for 1/19/17: BBAR!
I woke up this morning. I breathed freely, got up without pain, did all the morning things without thinking about it. I’m walking, seeing, hearing, thinking. I’m eating a hearty breakfast – and enjoying fresh, hot joe – as I write, able to absorb enough to remain in what is for me normal good health. I … Continue reading
100-Word Stroll, 11/21/16: INSIDE THE WRAPPER
My racing thoughts came to a tire-smoking NASCAR stop. I backed up and read it again. It read the same way. The cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. I thunk thoughts. Bad coffee doesn’t become good by using nicer cups. Washed, polished crystal can’t transform mediocre coffee. Anyone with some pride tries to … Continue reading
100-Word Stroll for 8/31/16: 20 PUSH-UPS LATER . . .
63-year-old bodies scarred by repeated surgeries and pummeled by repeated traumas don’t respond well to exercise. I do it anyway. On the floor, stretching out muscle remnants that prefer sleep. 50 crunches. Working arms and shoulders with 10-lb. barbells. On doc’s orders, getting sun – natural ‘D’ – as often as possible since I’m unable … Continue reading
100-Word Stroll: PROVE YOUR SAY BY WHAT YOU DO
“You are what you deliver, not what you promise.” That was Donald Trump. “The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have.” That was Vince Lombardi. “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded.” That was Jesus (Luke 12:48). Don and Vince must’ve paid attention. I need … Continue reading
QTMs for 6/13/2016: OKAY, THAT’S JUST NOT *FAIR* . . .
Nobody likes a stacked deck. “It’s a jungle out there,” right? Come in, toss jacket and griefcase on whatever’s handy and closest. Open fridge and take a long swig of milk right out of the carton. Swipe your other hand across your forehead, stretch your chin straight up as you loosen your tie, unbutton your … Continue reading
QTMs for 6/11/16: OKAY, JESUS – WHAT’S WITH THAT? – PART II
If you’re one of those impatient, self-important types who thinks your time is too valuable to go back and read Part 1, believing yourself bright enough to know what I’ve written leading up to this point, you shouldn’t be reading this in the first place. Go away. This will do you no good. I … Continue reading
GRANGER: “WE REALLY FRIENDS?”
“Puh-CHEENG-g-g-g!” It struck me that the chooser of the Facebook private messaging sound had to be a morning person, an inveterate optimist. The high-pitched, cheery, sharp little sound easily overrode all the other chirps, boops, bips and Zedge’s stylized notifications. Couldn’t be ignored on a bet. It further struck me that the chooser would be virulently … Continue reading
