  • The camping bug has taken a bite outa me

    I’m going camping this weekend.
    My dad and step mom are what true Floridians call “Snowbirds.” They usually launch for the sunny south around the first of October.
    So this weekend will be the last hoorah before they take flight.
    As I said, I’m a camping fan.
    Well, as best you can be with air conditioning, mattresses, porcelain and running water.

  • What can wash away all sin?

    On May 30, 1978, the blood of Jesus cleansed me from all my sin.
    Actually, that happened 2,000 years before that, but I didn’t know it until that day.
    As my Jesus-anniversary present this year, I bought myself a CD of old hymns set to new music. It’s called “For All the Saints,” the third Indelible Grace project. (See www.igracemusic.com)
