What Are You Waiting For?

Many of us know when we need to make changes. Maybe it’s after that Doctor appointment. Maybe it’s after another fight…one more job loss…when the bills outlast the money. Changes rarely happen with we’re comfortable. In fact, changes almost never happen when things are going well and we’re ‘safe and secure’ in our own lives.Continue reading “What Are You Waiting For?”

Pots and Kettles

If you are…ahem…at least ‘middle aged’, like I am, you have heard the phrase, ‘That’s like the Pot calling the Kettle black’. It’s an idiom for hypocrisy–when person #1 accuses person #2 of doing the very thing that that person #1 is actually guilty of. I always wondered: Where do phrases like that come from?Continue reading “Pots and Kettles”

No Rest for YOU!

One of my favorite ‘Seinfeld’ episodes from years ago was called ‘Soup Nazi’. There was a chef in New York who was very temperamental, and IF you wanted soup from him, you had to make sure to conduct yourself according to his ‘code’ while in his shop…otherwise you’d here the phrase, “No soup for YOU!”,Continue reading “No Rest for YOU!”

What Can We Do?

My goodness! There are LOTS of stressors in the world right now! I look at the headlines from the last week–Political turmoil (what else is new?), Weather turmoil (Hurricane Florence is coming ashore as I write, with 3 ‘named’ storms churning out at sea and Super Typhoon Mangkhut is heading toward China and the Philippines); GunmenContinue reading “What Can We Do?”

Did Jesus Really ‘Mean’ It?

When Jesus was starting his public ministry, early on He went to His hometown of Nazareth. He went to the synagogue, and offered to read. The scroll of the Prophet Isaiah was handed to Him, and He found the spot where he read… “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,     for he has anointed me toContinue reading “Did Jesus Really ‘Mean’ It?”

Power Source

Power. One thing we all need, and it’s the key to progress. If you have ‘power’, you can make improvements, invent new things, have comfortable environments, light up dark spaces, etc. When the power goes out, however, you’re stuck. There seems to be a continual quest to invent/discover new ways of making power go further,Continue reading “Power Source”

Deeper and Higher!

If you are a Believer in Jesus Christ, you know that God loves you. That, after all, is the main reason that He sent His son into the world! “God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For GodContinue reading “Deeper and Higher!”

Prayer: God’s Love Language

I was thinking the other day that, if God had a ‘primary’ love language, it would probably be Prayer. Many of you have heard about and/or read Gary Chapman’s The 5 Love Languages. The idea behind this book is that we all have a primary ‘love language’ that resonates with us, and therefore, if IContinue reading “Prayer: God’s Love Language”
