But Do We Soar?

Recently, Michal and I have been watching a British series on Netflix entitled “Call the Midwife.”  The story is set in East London in the late 1950s and it centers on an Anglican Church mission in that area designed to care for a population giving birth at a high rate after the War during the …

Though He Slay Me

Dear Bereans, I preached a message some months ago on “Bethel Moments: Jacob’s Journey of Sanctification.” Jacob was always running from his troubles, whether it was Esau, Laban, or the people of Shechem. He was a conniver, as supplanter, and a schemer and it kept him always fleeing from one difficult circumstance to another (read …

Where Did the Manna Go?

Someday…at sometime…the manna ceases. When Israel crossed the Red Sea on dry land, because of their sin and rebellion,  they wandered in the wilderness for forty years as punishment and purging, God provided daily bread for them the entire time in the form of manna.  What grace! This manna was a light bread like substance …

The Revealed Heart

When I began this blog it was meant to share the cancer journey with anyone that felt they might somehow benefit from it.

Comeback

Everyone loves a great comeback.  The boxer that is all washed up…only to come back and win the title one more time.  The New England Patriots football team was down by 24 points in the second half of the Super Bowl last February against the Atlanta Falcons only to come back and win the game …

Almost There

Well, what a summer, eh?  It has been the most eventful of my life, that’s for sure.  But you know summer coming to a close always brings me a sense of melancholy.  There is just something about the summer “dying;” the fading of the garden, the coolness of the evenings, and the lengthening of the …

Perspectives

Perspective is an interesting word.  It speaks about how we see things, what our viewpoint is, or what our perception of a thing is.  Perspective is a decidedly subjective thing.  Michal and I were watching a program the other night and one of the players in the drama reminded me of Molly Bixler.  Not so …

Scars

The last time I was in Washington D.C., they were just doing the ground work for the very impressive WWII monument.  I have seen pictures of it and am longing to go back to D.C. and walk its now hallowed plaza. I love D.C. because it is a living monument to our great Republic.  We …

Better Days

Some days are just better than others. I think we all realize that every day is not the same.  Even if we are doing the same routine day after day, not every one of those days are as good as the next.  Have you ever started some days and you just thought, “Oh, it is …
