  • If you can’t say something good....

     I was recently reading an article entitled “Whatever Happened to Civility?” It was written by Dr. Rocco Leonard Martino, founder and chairman of the board of Cyber-Fone Technologies Inc.
    We do not have to turn very far to see that this question should be one that begs for our response and action. It is easy to find a widespread breakdown in civility between individuals and groups of people. Rocco reminds us:
    “Civility is a noun that essentially means showing respect for another person’s words, actions, beliefs and demeanor.

    This week my mind is going in 100 different directions. Here’s some of the things that are making me crazy/giving me comfort:
    A woman I met in a 12-step program sums up the first three steps like this: “I can’t. God can -- I think I’ll let him.”
    I can’t.
    I can’t fix the things in my life or the things in others’ lives that are broken. I’ve been trying, and I can’t. I can’t.
    I can’t, but God can.

  • The Bible is God’s side of the conversation

    You know, we should read our Bibles. You probably even started this year with good intentions of reading it each day or at least a little more regular. But with so many distractions, interruptions, demands and activities that impact our day it makes it hard to sit down and read God’s Word.
    Reading the Bible is a struggle for most of us, but opening God’s Word and taking time to listen and understand what God has to say is one of the most important blessings we have to build that relationship with Him.

    It’s been a while since my neighbor lady has wreaked havoc on my life.
    However, this past week she made up for lost time.
    To bring you up to speed on who my neighbor lady is: She’s my evil twin, my alter ego, an overbearing, intrusive buttinsky mother who has trouble remembering that once the umbilical cord is cut moments after birth, it should not and cannot ever be reattached and it is futile and foolish to even try -- although she’s been trying for more than 40 years.

  • I knew you before I formed you

    According to history, the Prophet Jeremiah was a man who would primarily be looked upon by most of humanity as a failure.  
    For much of his life he was a poor, isolated, unpopular and persecuted individual. In Jeremiah chapter 11 and again in chapter 26, we read that his life was threatened for prophesying the Word of the Lord.
    In chapter 20 Jeremiah was arrested, whipped and placed in stocks for prophesying the Word of the Lord.

    Whenever I need big-time prayers, I go to the big guns: my 6-year-old great-niece, Leah.
    This past summer when Hurricane Irma was about to decimate Florida, Leah prayed for the “hurricane to go away” and especially that her “Tee Tee Nancy” wouldn’t be scared.
    Irma didn’t go away, but it did decrease enough in strength that at least my house didn’t blow away.
    So, I put that in the win column for Leah’s answered prayers.
    Plus, I wasn’t afraid, so that’s two wins for Leah.

  • Encouragement for yet another New Year

           
    They keep flying by don’t they? The years. The years seem like pages of a book that are caught by the wind. They just keep flipping over, moving relentless to the end.
    Here we are at the turn of another year. Sometimes when you are singing, you have to reset to get back on the pitch. What does that reset look like for a Christian?
