"Reminiscing"

Sometimes things happen in life that just simply make us sad. No words can explain the heavy weariness that crept into my heart when I heard about the sudden death of a friend a few days ago. Why did a 37 year-old man’s life have to end so tragically? Could it have been stopped, delayed or better yet, just imagined? I do believe that when it is time for each and every one of us to meet our maker then we will do so at that exact moment. When Jeremy was given life the creator of all things knew…See More

Field of Dreams

For the first time in months I have been sitting at my iMac for the past several hours doing what I love to do, write. I just finished a rough draft of a cute little children’s story with a powerful message titled, “Millie Mouse.” (I know I’m hung up on mice.) There are a couple of stories behind this anecdote. Around Christmas time last year a friend of mine sent me a picture that her grandson had taken of a mouse peeping out from the branches of a Christmas tree they had just brought…See More

The Doors of Life

Matthew 7:7-8 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. One of my favorite sayings is, “If you don’t ask you’ll never know the answer.” I’ve never been one to shy away from life. I sort of take the bull by the horns and hang on for the ride. I’ve always figured if you want something ask for it, what’s the worst that can happen?…See More

Putting Your Life on Hold

Mid-October of last year the secretary at my home church had to resign to take care of her very ill husband. And guess who the assistant secretary is that was called to fill in? Yep, that’s right, me. If all had of went as planned I was to undergo a couple of weeks of training before the “real” secretary resigned. Unfortunately, because of her husband’s rapid decline in health those two weeks was reduced to a one-day training period.My knowledge of how the former secretary did certain jobs in…See More

The Gift of a New Year

Luke 6:38Give, and it shall be given unto you: good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. Here we are at the close of another year. I always feel sort of giddy as Father Time transports me into another New Year. Looking back there have been hard times, and sad happenings, but the good things of life far outshine the bad. I am blessed. I certainly haven’t done…See More

The Loss of a Good Friend

For weeks now a special friend of mine has been slowly fading into the sunset. Everyday she moves a little slower, and takes about twice as long as she once did to crank up in the mornings. It is such an awful feeling not being able to stop the aging process. This special friend holds so much knowledge inside her memory. Copies of all my books, thoughts, blogs and business correspondence fills her gigabits. As I speak my friend Macintosh OS X is swirling her little kaleidoscope ball around…See More

Spider Attack

I love life! It is ever changing, and ever challenging. We never know what the day, week or month will bring. It’s like we get up in the morning and are handed a whole passel of gifts. One day that gift may be a surprise box of happiness, another day may bring bad news, or, that phone call in the middle of the night that makes you break out in a cold sweat. I had sort of one of those surprises two weeks ago. While cleaning up some property down by Byrd’s Branch somehow a sneaky old spider crept…See More

Do-Over at the Smooching Pond

Do you ever look back at your life and think, “If I could only do that over?” There are lots of things in life that you can do over. A bad haircut will grow out and you can start all over again with a new style. A golf shot can be done over, and over again, likewise with a tennis volley, or basketball shot. You get to try again and again. Unfortunately, there are some things that can’t be fixed with a do-over. What about spiteful words spoken about someone? You can’t take words back. Once those…See More

Noah Was How Old?

Noah Was How Old?

 

Genesis 7:11

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

 

During the past several months I have often wondered, “What in the world am I doing?” Starting a new/small business (that is costing a fortune) on the backside of fifty must mean I am insane, dementia is setting…

No matter what they call us, there's no denying the spirit of adventure! And aren't the memories priceless?
