I’m Tradin’ My Sorrows

Or at least I’ve been thinking about it. I’ve been a Chicago Bears fan for over 50 years. I watch the games, and record them if I can’t watch live. I listen to sports radio during the season (and preseason and now that the coach and GM have been fired and probably at least through […]

A Set-Apart New Year

I’m not normally one for New Year’s. I think I fell asleep about nine last night. About twenty years ago, I made a resolution not to make any more resolutions and it’s the only one I’ve kept. So imagine my surprise this morning to realize I felt different about 2015. I grabbed my coffee and […]

New Computer Virus

My Laptop crashed so I took it to my guy. He said I had a virus and asked if I’d been on any sites I didn’t normally go to. The only one I could think of was an online bowling game. “Well that explains it,” he said, “your computer has contracted the E-bowler virus!” Tweet

Now Where Was I …

It’s been two years since my last post, and a lot has happened to all of us, I’m sure. For that is the way God holds our interest; by changing our circumstances to keep us from becoming bored with our own existence. We slip toward our common end while striving to be more, to mean […]

Real Perfection

We don’t know much about Jesus’ childhood except that he grew in wisdom and stature. That he grew in stature is apparent; we’re first told of an infant and later we see him as a grown man. At first thought, the idea that he grew in wisdom was much more interesting. But then I realized […]

Cultivate the Twinkle

What are you doing Sunday morning? Will you be spending a leisurely morning at home, surrounded by family? Will you spend it at church ? Or will you be alone? Wherever you are, scan the faces you can see. Look first for love; the love you were meant to give and the love you might receive. If we […]
