Happy Labor Day!

I hope you all stay safe and be careful while around others. You never know who might be bringing that nasty little virus around. Since it’s a holiday, I thought I’d share a short video that tells the story of Labor Day from one of my favorite channels, the History Channel. I hope you enjoy.   If you or someone you know needs prayer, leave a comment below, and I’ll add it to my prayer …

Finding God Unexpectedly

I love it when I’m listening to a song or watching something on television and God is mentioned unexpectedly. That occurred the other day. When I’m working out, I like to listen to oldies rock. The other day, the song “Get Together” by The Youngbloods came on. Here are some of the lyrics that made me sit up straighter: “Some may come and some may go, We shall surely pass, When the one that left …

Learning to Trust

“Put the camera down and let’s play ball!” You were abused in your past. Hurt by someone you loved. Cheated on. Abandoned. These are all ways we lose our trust in others. It takes time to overcome these issues, even when it comes to trusting God. It’s hard to understand a God you call Father if your own father abused or abandoned you. Just know that God is nothing like any father here on Earth. …

Knowledge is Power

This pandemic has a lot of people afraid. I don’t mean those wearing masks, that right now might be common sense. I’m speaking of those who are so afraid of getting sick, they fear leaving their homes or allowing visitors for any reason. The best way to fight fear is not with the media, it’s with knowledge. I want to put things in perspective for you. This is a respiratory flu. If you have breathing …

If you would take a minute and go to the website to vote, I would greatly appreciate it. The names are listed in alphabetical order by last name, so just look for the “B”s and you’ll find me.

Hiding the Truth

This past week I read a news article where only positive tests for the Corona virus are being reported near Tampa, Florida. That means 100% results for the virus. When a journalist (apparently a true journalist because he wanted to know the truth) got suspicious, he discovered what was going on. Turns out if you add in the negative results, that 100% is closer to 9%. It’s hard enough to know what’s going on with …
