Killin’ Time

I don’t usually post things this late, but.. I’m just sittin’ here killin time, so…

Another story from my logging days has been stuck in my head all these years. The hook tender on this occasion was a guy who’d been dubbed, “Killer.” He was about five-foot-six, and weighed probably two hundred pounds, a lot of which was rock-hard muscle. He was known throughout the Mt. Rainier area as a street-fighter you didn’t want to tangle with. Naturally, none of us on the crew gave him any lip. Read the rest of this entry »

Thank a Lineman

We are constantly reminded that we should appreciate and thank our policemen and firefighters, but I don’t know that I’ve ever heard anyone encouraging folks to appreciate and thank the guys and gals who keep our electricity flowing to our homes and businesses. Read the rest of this entry »

Daily Encouragement – 3/31

March 31

            “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27

            This is one of my favorite verses about peace; I love that Jesus gives us His peace. I love also how He tells us not to be troubled or afraid. He is, by saying this, defining peace. When we are troubled (worried) or afraid, we are not at peace. Though people and things of this world may offer us temporary relief from our troubles and fears, they are no equal to the peace Jesus gives us.

            Jesus came so we could have peace; He came to give us a new start. All we have to do is believe in Him and love Him, and He gives us His all. Believing in Jesus is not simply about salvation, it comes with all good things. Peace, joy, eternal life with the Father and Son, and the list goes on and on. They are all ours!

            I know how difficult it is to be at peace; the world batters us each day with many distractions and evil is in our face almost constantly. I contend we have to accept the gift of peace Jesus offers us. If we don’t accept it, evil wins; and I know evil does not win! God is in charge of all things, and ultimately, He, and good, will prevail. I am convinced of that!

            Jesus said, “Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

 I’m going to do as he says!

Bits and Pieces…. the extraordinary life of an ordinary man

The following is the rough draft of what will be the introduction to my story. I’ve come to the realization that I write for me, and so I’ve decided my last work should be about me. I may post bits of it as I go along; maybe not. For I’ve realized another thing in recent days, and that is people are far too busy to read. Don’t get me wrong; I understand, and I appreciate those who take time from their busy days to read some of the too, many things I throw at the world in general.

I’m rambling. Catch y’all tomorrow… or the next day. Love ya! C Read the rest of this entry »

A Man Among Men

Now surely y’all don’t think this is a story about me! No, sir, this one is another little quick note about my logging days, but I’m nowhere near the top of anyone’s list compared to the guy it’s about. It’s just a short short story, so take a look if you have time. I’m pretty sure Ol’ “Bing” would like it if ya do. Read the rest of this entry »
