Pray For Florida

I lived in Florida for 10 years.  I was there for  Charley, which didn't really affect us in Jacksonville except to knock out power, and, I was there when Katrina came through. That one didn't really affect Jacksonville too badly either. Irma's strength, size, and path threaten to do great damage to a lot of... Continue Reading →

Praying For Texas

I am from Texas. I never knew that Houston was vulnerable to such flood. Currently, they are being pounded by rain brought by Tropical Storm Harvey. The flooding seems to have happened suddenly and caught the city by surprise. It's the same kind of surprising destruction that happened in New Orleans in 2005 with Hurricane... Continue Reading →

Grace For Change

  This past weekend we moved my youngest to her college dorm. I can't believe how fast this has happened. My son (my oldest) will be a senior in college this year. It seems like just a couple of years ago they were my little kids arguing about which Veggie Tales video to watch. I... Continue Reading →

I’m A Cat Person

Bet You Didn't Know I Am a Cat Person In June of 2014, I found a very small kitten in the parking lot of a Hardee's. She is all black except for one small patch of white on her breast. I brought her home. I didn't see her mother anywhere. If I'd left her she... Continue Reading →

As you could imagine, it was not laws, rules, or regulations that drew me in. It was the Lord's love and forgiveness and mercy and grace that is... Continue Reading →

A More Christlike God

For the longest time, I have suspected that since the death and resurrection of Jesus the Christ, the world has been slowly but surely being transformed by the power of God's love into something new, the kingdom of God. I know it doesn't look... Continue Reading →

Citizens of Heaven

By Greg Albrecht— For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven. And... Continue Reading →

Arming The Church?

I was just watching a piece aired on May 8, 2017, on NBCBLK called, In the Age of Trump, Black Church Preaches Gospel of God and Guns, which talked about the increase in gun sales, especially among African-Americans. The increase has been significant since the election of Donald Trump. What is most disturbing about this... Continue Reading →

Grace Under Fire

Well, I saw a nephrologist the other day, a kidney specialist. My kidneys are functioning properly and the doc feels they are in good health. As for the cyst on my kidney, he recommends getting another CT scan in six months, which is what my primary care physician suggested as well. The nephrologist also told... Continue Reading →
