I have never considered myself to be boring. I may be boring to other people but not to myself.

When I was about 10 years old, my parents gave me a little red KJV Bible. On the front cover this phrase was printed - "The Living Word of God." I remember asking my mother what that meant. She told me that the Bible was unlike any other book. It is alive. It speaks to the hearts of

It’s a sad day when people are offered the kingdom of heaven, but they don’t see its value. They set it aside as a common thing and go their way. Image going to an antique store and finding a priceless antique there. The seller has priced it as a common item. But it is worth many times more than

.A customer walked into my clothing shop and asked to see the pants that were advertised in the paper that day. “We don’t have an ad in the paper today,” I told her. She insisted I was wrong, so I got a copy of the paper, and we went through it, eventually landing on an ad for pants from another

Where I was Pastoring at the time I got 5th Sunday off. I had a favorite fishing hole. The water wasn’t very deep so I could wade in the water. That was fun for me. It had big trees that hung over the water and the sun would shine through them and made it look beautiful.
It was great, this river

I do not quit easily. When I start a project, I like to work until it's finished. I hate to quit before something is completed.
One thing I have learned through the years is not to start something unless I have the time and resources to finish it. How many projects I started in the past and
I am sure that you all know the nursery rhyme about Humpty Dumpty. I think you can all say it with me.
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.
So what was Humpty Dumpty? Everybody knows

My wife told me about a dream where she is looking up at a cloudy sky with two arms sticking through the clouds and says, "I love you." The arms sign back to her, "I love you."
I am cautious about dreams and interpretations because most are just our brains doing what we call

I saw a painting that caught me off guard. It was a normal painting of snow covered mountains in the background. A beautiful pond where you could see the clouds in the very calm pond. But there was a herd of sheep there. The details just pulled me into the painting. I just stared at the sheep. But

With such a tumultuous summer, I’m glad we are now beginning the fall season. There for a while, I didn’t think it was going to come. But, contrary to my negativity, it has arrived, and I’m delighted.
Summer wasn’t quite the way summers have been in the past. My family didn’t have many
Introduction: The Old Testament prophets sometimes faced severe persecution. Jeremiah certainly had his share of troubles and in this instance, he had preached God’s message but was thrown into a cistern! Most likely he was going to be left there to die, but an unsung hero helped rescue Jeremiah.

I am afraid that if Paul Revere rode through our towns crying, "The evil is coming! The evil is coming" Church folks would go back to sleep instead of rising to arms and in the morning have him arrested for disturbing the peace. The same works for revival. The call may come and God

I have learned that you don't miss something until it is gone. Unfortunately, sometimes, it's too late.

When they saw how deep the pit was, they told the two Frogs that they were as good as dead.
