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.

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
Blessings From 2019
2019 closes out another year of retirement life , and it’s time for our annual Newsletter (or litany?) For those living North of us, today’s highs were in the 70’s. For those living South of us, it’s “cooler by the mile” here during the Summer! 😎
Unlike 2018, we were not “bothered” in 2019 by a hurricane. It was only a weak tropical storm. We feel blessed. That’s blessing number 1. The prior year there was much talk about Florida getting its own time zone and skipping Eastern Standard Time altogether. This year, nothing happened. But, the sun continues to rise in the East and set to the West while we are stuck with EST and DST. Oh well.
Psalms 50:1 The Lord God Most Powerful has spoken. He calls to everyone on earth, from where the sun rises to where it sets. (ERV)Continue reading
