Actually, I sit here tonight surrendering to the voice that keeps telling me to write. Whether it is for you, someone else, or myself – I don’t know. I am here and you are there. It remains to be seen if either of us will be there by the 2nd paragraph. I don’t take the … More On my knees
This week I had a conversation with my friend who is a Chaplain in the U.S. Army. I am so thankful for him and his family! They are all beautiful and I am so thankful for their service to God and our Country! I look forward to seeing them over Christmas before heading to their … More Thank you for my freedom!
I just watched Saving Pvt. Ryan – again! I cried – again! The sacrifice made by the WWII generation is something those of us who reap the benefit of freedom today will never be able to comprehend. I’m thankful to those who served then… I’m thankful for those who serve now! There have been so many lives given … More Walk On
Difficulties and trials… don’t you get tired of them? I do. I have learned through my many trials that there is much more I need to learn. And that there is much more to share with other people. The book of James begins with a talk on trials: Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests … More Nourishment for others
This morning’s group was a bit different. We met at Starbuck’s instead of the usual Bridges Agency location. It was nice to sit outside and enjoy the nice 54 degree weather… in July! We talked through prayer requests. More than anything, we just talked and enjoyed the morning. Joel did bring up a passage of … More What’s the focus of your vision?

Too often when one tries to follow God in obedience others ridicule and tear down… judge whether this or that is a “wise” thing or not. The sad part is that more often than not it comes from “brothers and/ … More Growing like Peter
James 4:17, “To know to do good and not do it is sin.” I don’t want to find myself in a place where I am out of touch with God and His working in my life. I don’t want to get to a place where the needs I have are the first thoughts I have … More Before you tell Him, “No.”
Randall O’Brien has a book entitled, “I Feel Better All Over Than I Do Anywhere Else”. A friend of mine is full of all sorts of corny sayings. One I remember him saying most is, “Wherever you are there you’ll be.” I recall working for an electrical contractor in Albuquerque. It was “just a job” to help pay … More An unguarded moment
I am still thinking through all of the processes that go on into “The City” (my churches children’s ministry). I was asked to take on the task of overseeing “The City Crew”. This will be a team of 4th and 5th graders who volunteer to help within the Children’s Ministry at our church. Yesterday all of my … More “Got to get better at this”
I’ve debated whether I should write about this or not. The debate is over and I have chosen to write about it. It’s going to be difficult to keep it short. I’ve been thinking a lot about Peter today. He did so much as a disciple and follower of Christ. So much is written about … More Would I have denied Christ?
