This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. (Joshua 1:8 ESV) Forward Friday! Happy to be moving forward, except sad to see baseball season over. The World Series was intense and came down to giving Houston more to celebrate. What are the chances of seeing so much good come out of Harvey, to have Astros be World […]
“For no good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit, for each tree is known by its own fruit. For figs are not gathered from thornbushes, nor are grapes picked from a bramble bush. The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” (Luke 6:43-45 ESV) Heart to Heart! What’s wrong in our society, reflects what’s happening with parenting. This is not a parenting blog. I promise to […]
Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgement on disputable matters. (Romans 14:1NIV) Disputes Motivating Monday! Topic on disputes seem daunting for Monday. Nothing like opening a can of worms to catch a fish, keeping one from hunger. When disputes are allowed to linger, we begin depleting peace within.

Faith In today’s times, weakness in anything is not acceptable or willing to be accepted. When testing faith, levels are presented in […]
To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor, and immorality, he will give eternal life. But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. (Romans 2:7, 8 NIV) Heart to Heart! Game 1 of the World Series, won by the Dodgers. My family loves Cardinal baseball. With Astros and Dodgers in the World Series, each are likable and wish both could win. Houston Strong is reason enough for an Astros’ win. Dodgers have the best pitcher in baseball, making first trip to World Series in his […]
The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied. (Proverbs 13:4 ESV) Motivating Monday! Clearly two sides of the coin in today’s scripture. Which side do we land? To be richly supplied or get nothing? It’s all based on the sluggard or being diligent. Thinking back to Friday’s blog, in order for new to spring forth, we’re going to have work to do. It would be nice if supplies fell out of the sky, not likely to happen. This does make me think how water falls from the sky and would […]

Find yourself blessed to find one who will sharpen with iron. Though the words are sometimes harsh and/or hard to swallow know it is a blessing, as I have.
