I sat here this morning and watched the moon disappear. Well, actually it just went into the shadow of the Earth in a total eclipse. It was kind of cool. It also got me to thinking.

We believe in a really great God. He created such an intricate and spectacular universe...

I was watching a preacher on TV and he was talking about us getting so caught up in what we know that we do not look for God. We don't look for Him to speak. We don't look for Him to heal. We do not expect Him to comfort. Most of the time we expect God NOT to keep His...

I was in church tonight and was asked to help serve the Lord's Supper elements. Throughout the service there was great worship and fellowship. I was really expecting God to show up and show off.

We celebrate the Lord's Supper on the fifth Sunday. That is usually every q...

What comes to your mind when someone says that something is authentic? Something 'real?' Something 'genuine?' True? Worthy of trust? What about 'reliable?' Believable? Not counterfeit?

In the New Testament times the Romans were in power. There was so much counterfeiting...

This last week I found out from my case manager that I can not put in for community corrections for another two years. It was like I got kicked in the stomach. Then I had to regroup and I realized that God is still God, and I am not. (I think there is a song out there...

I was watching National Geographic last night and they were showing a nature show on the Smokey Mountains. I get engrossed in programs that show nature and the wonders of God's creation. Even if the ones who created the show do not attribute it to Him.

Towards the end o...
