Sounds of the Season

Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from the heavens;  praise him in the heights!2 Praise him, all his angels; praise him, all his host!  Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all you shining stars!4 Praise him, you highest heavens; and you waters above the heavens! 5 Let them praise the name of the Lord, for he commanded and they were created.6 He established themContinue reading “Sounds of the Season”

Fork in the Road

1 Happy are those    who do not follow the advice of the wicked,or take the path that sinners tread,    or sit in the seat of scoffers;2 but their delight is in the law of the Lord,    and on his law they meditate day and night.3 They are like trees    planted by streams of water,which yield their fruit in its season,    and their leaves doContinue reading “Fork in the Road”

We Ask and Pray

Normally, I make my weekly, “Mid-Week Prayer for Teachers,” a post for Wednesday. That being said, tomorrow is Veteran’s Day and we will have a special guest post from Col. Michael R. Seale, USAF, Ret. that is specifically for Veteran’s Day. I know I have doubled up and essentially done two posts in one day.Continue reading “We Ask and Pray”

All Roads Lead to “Silence”

4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. 6 Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your mindsContinue reading “All Roads Lead to “Silence””

It’s A Matter of Time

Today is a day some celebrate, some don’t. For all of us I pray that it is a time to join together and move forward. That is not what this post is about. If you notice the Thirty Days of Thanks Calendar, today is being thankful for the time we are given. That is whatContinue reading “It’s A Matter of Time”

Go Vote

2 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone, 2 for kings and all who are in high positions, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity. 3 This is right and is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires everyone to beContinue reading “Go Vote”

The Dandelion Paradox (Manuscript)

24 Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like someone who planted good seed in his field. 25 While people were sleeping, an enemy came and planted weeds among the wheat and went away. 26 When the stalks sprouted and bore grain, then the weeds also appeared. 27 “The servants of the landowner came and said to him, ‘Master,Continue reading “The Dandelion Paradox (Manuscript)”

Remembering is Important

12 Then Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of the Lord. 13 The seven priests carrying the seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark of the Lord passed on, blowing the trumpets continually. The armed men went before them, and the rear guard came after the ark of the Lord, while the trumpets blewContinue reading “Remembering is Important”

It was Meant to Be (Tuesday Thoughts)

14 In the morning David wrote a letter to Joab, and sent it by the hand of Uriah. 15 In the letter he wrote, “Set Uriah in the forefront of the hardest fighting, and then draw back from him, so that he may be struck down and die.” 16 As Joab was besieging the city, he assigned Uriah to theContinue reading “It was Meant to Be (Tuesday Thoughts)”

It was Meant to Be (a Poem)

While watching television last night a character said, “It was meant to be.” The statement is fairly close to Leslie Weatherhead’s “Ultimate will of God.” But, there is a great deal of range between “It was meant to be” and the “Ultimate Will of God.” As I contemplated the statement, “It was meant to be,”Continue reading “It was Meant to Be (a Poem)”
