How much is God’s heart becoming my heart? Or said another way; “how much have I become like Jesus.” It’s a good question. Another way to ask that question is to ask; “where I spend my time and my money?” A third way is; “what am I passionate about?” What gets me excited in lifeContinue reading “A Few Question to Ask Yourself; I know Jesus Will”
Jesus once said, actually He said it over and over again but that is for another blog, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.” What He means for us to understand is that we know so very little and we should rejoice in knowing that we know little. ThereContinue reading ““The Joy of Knowing Little””
I haven’t been on this page for a while. I actually took a two week vacation and it was great, but it’s good to be back with all of you who follow this blog. We spend a lot of time making memories. Our phones, facebook, and our instagram accounts are filled with pictures. We spendContinue reading “Forgetting What is Behind and Pressing On”
Without giving away my age, I remember when prayer was taken out of public schools. Oh, the anger that was in the churches. It was going to be the demise of our country. One of the things that people didn’t consider in those days was what would a future of prayer in public schools mightContinue reading “Separation of Church and State”
In my last post where I wrote about what we see depends on where we look. How we hear Jesus’ words depends on where we start; on your perspective. I have learned to start at the cross, looking up.

Am sitting here watching a tennis match at the French Open, but it was played hours earlier and I already know the results. It’s a mixed bag of emotions. I know that Madison Keys (the American) loses the match so I am disappointed. On the other hand there is no stress as I watch. IContinue reading “Knowing the End Results”
Remembering is an acquired skill, or I should say remembering the right things is an acquired skill. All too often we fail in the trap of remembering the wrong things. Tomorrow our nation will remember those who gave the last full measure of their devotion to their country. These are men and women who gaveContinue reading “Remembering”
I am not sure of who the readers of this blog are, but if you attend the Wednesday night service at Gainesville UMC you will get something similar to what you are reading here. I don’t think it’s a stretch to say there there is too much stone throwing in our society today. I amContinue reading “Too Much Stone Throwing”
You ever get tired? I do, and often it’s my own fault for not getting enough sleep. Sometimes it’s because I stay up too late, other times it’s because I allow the worries of the day to take over and rob me of sleep. Jesus told His disciples in the “Sermon on the Mount;” 25Continue reading “It’s Not Worth It”
