Still Waters

About ten years ago, I made the comment, “All I want is peace.” Life was tossing me about, I was battling the demons of this world with every ounce of strength I could muster, and I was losing the war.

What I didn’t realize at the time, was how blessed I was. I had a wonderful wife, a beautiful, loving family, and more “stuff” than I surely needed. What was missing—what I truly “needed”—was faith. I had faith, but I’d put it in a closet or drawer somewhere, and wasn’t using it.

He’s Gone!

Life seems to be a series of seasons, and we have to learn to roll with the good and the bad. Some seasons  are better than others, some are really bad, and others are outstanding. Throughout our lives, there will be good times with friends, and there will be battles with enemies, and Read the rest of this entry »

Honor… the Last Gleaming

To most, honor is an antiquated notion at best, a corrosive naïveté at worst, but few human attributes deserve the exaltation and attention honor should. Living an honorable life is a choice, but unfortunately, it’s a choice too many these days don’t care to make.

It easier to simply go with the flow rather than have the attributes that describe honor; integrity, honesty, uprightness, ethics,  and morals, just to name a few. Many of our youth today don’t even know the meaning of honor or it’s synonyms. They weren’t taught them at home, and surely didn’t learn them in school. Many want to blame the school system, but in reality, I’m sorry to say, it’s our fault. We, the parents and grandparents of this new breed of citizen, allowed this to happen. I could go into detail as to the reasons we must shoulder the responsibility, but you’ve heard it all before.

The wise inherit honor, but fools get only shame. Proverbs 3:35 (If you want to read something really good, read all of Proverbs 3.)

Some Are Born To Lead

Get Used To It!

… or not.

It seems we too often get used to things and, even when they are beautiful or special to us in some way, we allow them to become just part of the scenery. Or, in our relationships—spouses, relatives, friends—we stop seeing what makes them special to us.

We should strive to never get used to the beauty and love with which God has blessed us.
