O Little Town of Bethlehem

It has been said, the two most important days in a persons life is the day they are born and the day they learn why.

I Finally Got My Tacos

This is not my [Keith’s] post. This post is written by Col. Michael R. Seale, United States Air Force, Retired. I had asked Col. Seale to write a post back when I did a series of posts as I was moving to Perritte Memorial United Methodist Church in Nacogdoches, TX. I’m not exactly sure whatContinue reading “I Finally Got My Tacos”

Five Smooth Stones

40 He then grabbed his staff and chose five smooth stones from the streambed. He put them in the pocket of his shepherd’s bag and with sling in hand went out to the Philistine. 41 The Philistine got closer and closer to David, and his shield-bearer was in front of him. 42 When the Philistine looked David over,Continue reading “Five Smooth Stones”

It was Meant to Be (a Poem)

He paid a heavy priceContinue reading “Shedding Tears”

My Heart Grieves

31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is GodContinue reading “My Heart Grieves”
