  • Crape Myrtles and full disclosure about Toby

    It is time for some catch up and reminders etc. First off, we are all beginning to think spring and planting and flowering shrubs. So, it is a great time to make our plans to put out one or more Crape Myrtles. There are folks who took up that suggestion last fall and planted and during the winter have had occasion to let me know. I have heard from readers in such varied locations as our big box store, restaurants, grocery, church—lots of places.

  • Does God Bleed Blue - Big Blue?

    My whole body quivers as this Dookie, may be the only royal blue fan in the entire commonwealth, strokes these keys. If Duke/UK isn’t bad enough, living in Carolina it was Duke/UNC. Arrogant Tar Heel fans would unscripturally proclaim, “If God isn’t a Tar Heel, why is the sky Carolina Blue?” My take, it is a sense of their false hope.
    Do we put God in a box? Do we define Him by our convenience and whims? Do we see Him in our approving light while He must surely be annoyed with others?

  • Grace Notes

    A few weeks ago, my pastor’s sermon made me squirm in my seat.
    We’ve been studying the Old Testament book of Exodus. That’s the book that talks about God rescuing the Israelites from their centuries of slavery in Egypt, all the plagues upon the Egyptians, how Moses parted the Red Sea and fed the Israelites with manna -- honey-tasting bread from heaven.
    At one point, Moses meets with God on Mt. Sinai where God gives him two stone tablets with his law written on them.
    God’s law is a gift to his people, my pastor said.
