A Polite Approach

A Polite Approach Can you imagine walking into someone's home as a guest and demanding they rearrange their furniture to suit you? Would you ever go into someone's office and give them a critique of their décor? I am assuming that most of us would answer no to these...

Wait, Listen, Obey!

These are three of the most difficult words that human beings come up against. These three words go against our nature. Therein lies the problem. Our nature is a little skewed you see. We have that pesky sin nature that makes us want to put ourselves and our needs...

Beginning or End

Are you the person who looks at this time of the year and thinks of all the things you didn't do, or do you focus on a new year beginning and consider all that can be done? The answer most likely varies as much as the pessimist/optimist query. Whichever answer you...

That Age

My kids are at that age. They are at that age in which they don’t want anything under the Christmas Tree, they just want cash or gift cards. How humbug is that? I must confess that it has been hard to get into the traditional Christmas Spirit this year. I miss those...

One Shoe

Not long ago I was walking through my house and found one of my kid’s shoes lying in the living room.  One shoe!  My natural curiosity kicked in and I began the quest for the matching shoe. I found it not in the same room, but in a different room altogether. At this...

Weird Days

Last week had a bit of everything.  A funeral, a hunting trip, hospital visits, World Series, kids fighting, staff meeting, football team ranked highly, work stress, pancakes for breakfast, bills to pay, and on the ups and downs go. Weird, right? Actually, it was not....

Unimaginable

One of my favorite things to do is take time to sit and stare at the stars.  I go to the country often where there are no city lights or street lights. When I look up at the stars they look twice their normal size because I can see their light without the interference...
