Ever been hiking? Whew, I have. I am not too good at it. The family and I went to Table Rock and we visited the trail. Everything was good as we hiked up the mountain on the smooth trail. It was paved and we stopped off at the waterfall and the boys walked in the water...

Do you ever have trouble letting others do things for you? In my messed up state, I know that I have issues with others doing things for me because I feel like I have to have everything in my life under control.

I can remember when Zachary was two years old and he begin...

Smiling. You know it brightens my day when I see other people smiling. It lets me into their small world for a moment and tells me that they are happy. I like a smile. It is sure better than a frown. I used to hear to be told this when I was growing up: “Turn that frow...

Psalm 32 says, “Count yourself lucky, how happy you must be—you get a fresh start, your slate’s wiped clean. Count yourself lucky—God holds nothing against you and you’re holding nothing back from him. When I kept it all inside, my bones turned to powder, my words beca...

Today, I am reading in Psalm 31 and I chose to read from The Message. David’s psalm grabbed my attention when he said, “I run to you, God; I run for dear life. Don’t let me down! Take me seriously this time! Get down on my level and listen, and please—no procrastinatio...

Sometimes I sit back and reminisce about when I was growing up. I remember sitting in my bedroom and hearing my Dad’s or my Mom’s voice call me. There is something special about knowing their voices. I knew from the different inflections in their voice what their calls...

Men are not supposed to cry. I am guessing you may have heard that line before, right? I have heard it from some folks and it is a statement that is totally false. Most of those in the older generation believe one should always work hard, nothing wrong with that. But t...

Today is Valentine’s Day. It is a day when the word “love” is thrown around in every general direction. Candy, flowers and gifts are purchased and exchanged. An extravagant amount of money is spent on loved ones. Now, please don’t throw rocks at me. I am not saying Val...

As I was reading Psalm 27, I began thinking about battles. No one that I know likes the subject of war, but war has certainly taken place in the history of America. We have walked through several of them: a revolutionary war, a civil war, two world wars and the Vietnam...
