Watch Me!

Reminder, you can pre-order Fade to the Edge at https://amzn.to/32teNZ2.   Watch Me! I love inspirational news stories. Too often we only hear the bad stuff. There’s a philosophy in the news – if it bleeds, it leads. That’s because people have a tendency to want to hear about the morbid stories. If you lived based on the local news, you’d think there was no hope in this world. But there is hope. Just ask …

A True Hero

  Reminder, you can pre-order Fade to the Edge at https://amzn.to/32teNZ2.   A True Hero In this age of kids killing themselves because of bullying, or even harming others, we don’t always learn about the heroes. But there was one such hero in Port Charlotte, Florida—fifteen-year-old Khlyer Edman. On October 1, 2019, a man with a knife broke into Khyler’s house. The teen took on this evil man in order to protect his sister. While he …

Hatred at its Best

The other day Ellen DeGeneres was caught sitting next to George Bush at a football game. The world of social media went crazy. How dare she sit next to a conservative when she’s a liberal. Did people believe his conservative nature would rub off on her? Photo from Deadline.com Then Ellen gave a response stating she’s been friends with George and Laura Bush for years and can be friends with others who do not believe …

Proof of a Loving Family

I went to a funeral over the weekend of a man who was clearly loved. Not by the number of people in the sanctuary, but by the words spoken by those in his family. Not only did they speak of his kindness, but of his faith, and how he loved to have fun. Obviously, they are a close family. And while they will miss him, they also know he is in a better place. Some …

Sins of the Parent

In Florida, a woman was caught on video stealing a box from someone’s porch. This porch pirate had her young daughter with her. Then in Texas, a seven-year-old caught on tape stealing told his mother that his father drove him around and made him take the packages. I’m sure if either child is later arrested for stealing; the parents will be shocked and wonder where they learned such things. I doubt very much either one …

God’s Miracles

God is the God of miracles. There is nothing He can’t do. In Jeremiah 32:27, He says I am the Lord, the God of all people. Nothing is too difficult for me. The more faith we have, the more miracles we will see. There are several miracles throughout the Bible, including Jesus calming the sea. I can go on and on about His miracles, but nothing is as good as seeing one. Click the link below …

Use as Instructed

Today I want to talk about the firestorm from vaping. First, let me make myself clear, I don’t think you should be putting anything like that into your lungs. My daughter uses one, and I wish she’d quit. That being said, why all the hoopla over these things? From what I’ve seen in the news, those who died from vaping were using these devices for THC oil, the component of marijuana that gets you high. …

Does God Allow Suffering?

Well, God did it again. He spared the armpit of Florida by sending Hurricane Dorian away. Jacksonville barely got wind much less rain. I wish I could say the same for the Bahamas. It’s at times like this that we ask the question, why? It’s not like Jacksonville is a particularly Christian city. In fact, in the first six months of 2019, there have been seventy-five homicides. So why would God spare us and not …
