I am sad for my country. There is far too much hate and not enough love. People are turning away from God with the result of a country going down the drain. If you read the news you know about sex scandals. It seems all of our country’s leading cultural and political institutions of society are rampant with scandal. Whether it is Hollywood, Sports, News Media, Politics, or Education, we are hearing more and more about sex scandals. No doubt these are only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Sadly, some of the reporting amounts to no more than gossip or rumor. Other reports are no doubt true. But, whatever happened to our cherished laws and courts of law where people are innocent until proven guilty? It seems we are now a nation of gossips and mob rule, destroying innocent people lives along with those who are guilty?Continue reading
All That Craziness
Recently, I went to the Dentist for my check-up. The office front door was locked! Before I could enter, they “ray-gunned” me for my temperature. Everyone wore a mask, and the office smelled of disinfectants. I had to fill out and sign a legal waiver in case I catch the corona virus. There was no turning back! I prayed to God for protection.
My dental hygienist was nice. She explained how they changed their dental procedures to make it more safe, but that there was still risk. She not only wore a face mask, but also a helmet with flip-down, see-through visor. She looked liked a welder! Please pray for her and others like her. Everyone in the medical profession are on the front line in the fight against the pandemic. God Bless them!
At the end of my visit, the Dentist came in to double-check my hygienist’s work. Before leaving he said, “Keep safe out there in all that craziness.” He was gone before I could think of a Biblical reply. He made me think about all the violence and turmoil we see today. What is the Biblical reply?Continue reading
Happy Father’s Day 2020 (“My Debbie”)
Many years ago my family had a farm in Western Pennsylvania. We had many animals like cattle, sheep, and pigs. When my Grandmother lived on the farm, we also had chickens. I enjoyed picking eggs every day.
One day my Dad bought some horses and ponies! Wow! A new adventure! Also, a cousin give us her female horse. She asked Dad if we want her. Sure! We find out later that “Nellie” is pregnant. Surprise! We pick up Nellie in April and her foal (baby) was born in May. We wait and watch Nellie give birth! A little filly (girl). We named her “Debbie.” I enjoyed watching her grow up from filly to mare.Continue reading
