How Much to Give

How Much to Give

Just wanted to let you know my new book is now available at all outlets including  Amazon at http://amzn.to/2gsVQz6.   How Much to Give It’s been almost a week since Hurricane Harvey hit the state of Texas leaving behind destruction. It only took a couple of hours before the haters started coming out. Who was their directed target? Joel Osteen. Apparently, they didn’t think he opened his church fast enough to allow people in. Next with …

A Tale We Weave

A Tale We Weave

My granddaughter, Hope, is an avid reader. At only four years of age, she can’t seem to get enough of books. She can even read some words herself. I think that is why she said the other day that she thought God was just reading a book, and we were just characters. Not her exact words, but the gist, and very profound anyway for someone so young. Children who read are more prone to go …

The Promotion of Lies and Hate

The Promotion of Lies and Hate

I’m sure you all recall the neo-nazi rally (yes, I didn’t capitalize, but I don’t think they should be put on a pedestal) held in Virginia last week where someone drove his car through the crowd. A lot of the protesters are being “outed” by people on the internet. They’re losing their jobs and have to move because of threats. What’s funny is most of those caught claim not to be part of the hate …

How to Win Big

How to Win Big

The lottery hit 300 million dollars this past week. When the jackpot’s that high, I like to think of what I’d do with that much money. The number of people I could help would be astronomical. Approx. 70% of lottery winners end up broke. Now, let me make this clear, I’m not advocating purchasing lottery tickets. If you want to do so, that’s between you and God. It has nothing to do with me or …

Be Happy Attitudes – Part 2

Be Happy Attitudes – Part 2

If you recall, last week, we discussed how to be happy by changing our attitude and using the Beatitudes found in Matthew as a guide. There are actually only eight verses considered Beattitudes in the Bible, but I’ve also included Matthew 5:11-12. I feel they are just as important as the rest, and while Matthew 12 doesn’t begin with “blessed,” Jesus used the word “rejoice” which is a good way to be blessed. Learn to …

Be Happy Attitudes – Part 1

Be Happy Attitudes – Part 1

It seems a lot of people walk around with frowns on their faces. They flit from one job to another, from relationship to another because they no longer make us happy. The problem is too often we look to others or things to make us happy. However, in most cases, we just need an attitude adjustment. 60% of those Christians who don’t attend church regularly end up divorced In Matthew 5, Jesus gives us a …

When An Evil World Knocks

When An Evil World Knocks

We all love to watch young children shine on talent shows. Very few appear to be from the Christian realm. Is it because Christian parents don’t want to shove their children into the spotlight until they’re old enough to make that decision themselves? Too often parents force their children into a situation before they are ready. More likely, it’s out of fear of their children being in that type of world. Romans 12:2 tells us …

A Backward Backlash

A Backward Backlash

Actor James Woods sparred with others on Twitter for calling out the parents of a transgender child. You can see it here. (http://people.com/celebrity/james-woods-gender-creative-child-tweets/) Woods didn’t use much tact, but I knew exactly what he was trying to tell them. Stop using your child as a puppet for your politically correct agenda. Gender Expression is how one expresses their gender to another. For women, one way is with makeup. Now let me make it clear, I …

Never Seems to Go Away

Never Seems to Go Away

It’s summer and the time for vacations and getaways. But, have you ever noticed that as you prepare to leave, something pops up? It seems like no matter what you do, stress never seems to go away. According to AAA, only 1/3 of families take a vacation each year. I know someone getting ready to leave for two weeks. Everything appeared to be moving along nicely when a couple of days before they were to …

Happy Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July

Over 200,000,000 pounds of fireworks are purchased each year. Dear Father, God, it’s me, the United States of America. It’s that time of year when we celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence, and I just wanted to send out a quick prayer to You before all the hoopla gets started. First, I want to thank You for loving me and caring so much that You sent Your Son to die for all my …
