I am so glad the election is over. I thought once done, we could get back to our normal lives, but then the protests erupted. And then I read an article from screenwriter Aaron Sorkin regarding Donald Trump winning the election. He apparently wrote a letter to his daughter that has been circulating. He, of course, like a lot of others in Hollywood labeled Donald Trump a sexist. I have a question for you Mr. …

When  the Words Won’t Come

When the Words Won’t Come

A friend calls in tears with bad news.  A lump on her breast, a child possibly dying, or a marriage falling apart. Unfortunately, these are all part of life here on Earth. Psalm 9:9-10 tells us, The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you. Right here in this verse, it …

Does God Hate Women?

Does God Hate Women?

Lies are all around us these days with the elections coming up. Every candidate says what the group they are speaking to wants to hear in order to win votes. But this is no different than any other day. People and businesses lie daily in order to get our attention. The sad part. Sometimes we listen. We listen when the magazine article tells us that the model in their photo is real and that’s what …

Hurricane’s a Coming

Hurricane’s a Coming

As most of you know, Hurricane Matthew hit on October 7, 2016. I was without power for three days, some quite a bit longer. There was devastation along the coast, however, Jacksonville, while without power, overall remained unscathed. When I mentioned this to a clerk at a local post office, he said it was because Jacksonville is a praying city. Proverbs 15:29 tells us The Lord is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayer of …

Are You a True Ambassador?

Are You a True Ambassador?

Just a quick note: My e-book “Beautiful Imperfection” is on sale the entire month of October for only $0.99. http://amzn.to/1bxHHda. Are You a True Ambassador? I was reading an article the other day, and the author mentioned how Christians are an ambassador for Christ. This isn’t the first time I’ve heard the terms used, but I didn’t give it much thought before. For some reason when I think if an ambassador, I think politics. And …

The Battle Cry of Disrespect

The Battle Cry of Disrespect

Unless you’ve been under a rock or out of the country, I’m sure you’ve heard the controversy surrounding Colin Kaepernick kneeling for the National Anthem in support of Black Lives Matter. People claim he can’t associate with African-American males on the street because he was raised by white parents and makes millions of dollars. A lot of people are angry because they see his kneeling as a sign of disrespect. Teaching Them Early Okay. I …

Why Does God Allow It?

Why Does God Allow It?

Gang violence takes an innocent life. Rape among college sports stars is on the rise. A child gets harmed by another. People ask all the time how God can allow bad things to happen if he loves us. VIOLENCE EVEN OCCURS IN CHRISTIAN HOMES God doesn’t tempt a predator by putting children in his sites any more than He put 50 Shades of Grey into the hands of Christians. God gives us free will to …
