1 Thank you heavenly father for all the blessings I have received, both seen and unseen. The goodness you provide is a result of my faith. 2 The confident assurance that what I hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of what I cannot see. 3 You will find me wherever I… Continue reading Psalm 150 (DKB version)
Love thy neighbor. Which one? The quiet retired couple to the right of us, the loud talkers several more sites to the right, or the spring break party bunch behind us? They are all neighbors. This transient, nomadic life style provides for many neighbors. We have different neighbors almost every day. Every week or so, we… Continue reading Neighbors
For six day’s Deb and I partnered with “Time To Revive” (TTR) in Apollo Beach, Florida. It was a controlled blur. Everyday a great deal happened, too much to document and share. To paint a tiny picture of how the TTR model plays out, I have three short stories; Blissology, Gibsonton, and The Tower. Blissology… Continue reading Love, Listen, Discern, Respond
It’s kind of weird/normal having a personal relationship with Jesus. I suppose by some it could be viewed as having an imaginary friend. I use to see it that way. Oh but what a wonderful friend, and tour guide we have. In Sarasota, FL we met up with Ellis and Marcia, several dear friends from… Continue reading Shuffleboard, anyone?
Some time ago, over twenty years now, we were camping in an old Ford pickup. It was a basic two-wheel drive truck; way before crew cabs became popular. It had crank windows, an engine that burned oil, no air conditioning, but it offered what we needed. I found a topper for $10.00 that was no… Continue reading Mere Reflection
The government partial shut down resulted in some National Parks, and National Forests being gated shut. Not an inconvenience compared to the government workers who were not getting paid for their labor. Do you suppose a law will ever pass stating that people of the Senate and Congress would be the first listed to not receive… Continue reading And Life Goes On
An Emergency Response Team was training at Kelly Park. It was a pleasure visiting with Chief Justin, and an honor lifting his courageous men up in prayer. His response team, being no different than other brave men and women who face adversity, trauma situations, and danger for a living, need all the prayer they can get. On… Continue reading Kelly Park and Prayer
Decades ago speeding down the freeway I remember feeling sorry for the folks riding on a city bus. Restricted, sitting, loss of control, they can’t even get to their exact destination, I thought “Oh my, how can they do that?” What an ignorant thought. Some years later I found myself commuting to downtown Minneapolis for more… Continue reading Who Moved My Cheese?
Deb and I are connecting more now than ever. How can we not? We both hang out in the same 238 square foot space. We share the same vehicle, and dine together. Our acceptance, and grace quotients have increased along with the RAM’s odometer reading. Everyday there are new adventures, new sights, along with new stress,… Continue reading Connectivity
Ambient temperature under 65 degrees is considered cold water kayaking for us. It’s a shame having the boats so readily available and not be on the water. In the past 2-½ months we have had the kayaks out 3 times, twice-in Louisiana, and once in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Gulf Shores State Park was a great… Continue reading Gulf Shores, Alabama
