Adrian Rogers Speaks

The Christian Radio station I most listen to does not carry these broadcasts.  I get the Facebook posts on a schedule I can’t figure out.  Here is today’s 330 word composition that is packed with homespun wisdom.  I’ll never figure out why people make things to difficult to understand with lots of flowery words when …

Honey Hamster

Honey and I are beginning to bond.  Here is post #1 of others to come! I know, I should learn how to insert pictures.  I have not taken a picture of Honey yet because sometimes he is difficult to see.  He is that little piece of fluffy fur curled up in his favorite sleeping corner.  …

A Place for the Lord

I Chronicles 29:1 “. . . for the palace is not for man, but for the LORD God.”  God did not allow David to build a permanent worship center for the nation Israel.  It occurred to me as I read through II Samuel and I Chronicles that David’s heart was such that he could and …

Whiter Than Snow

Not the song, but the verse from King David’s plea: “Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.” (Psalm 51:7)  There are places in the world today that still know the ritual of wash day as I knew it as a child.  They perhaps have …

Floaters

Eye problems are concerning.  One wants to be able to see.  Yet, many of us, including me, are dependent on vision healthcare givers.  Glasses have been part of my attire for over 50 years.  I am quite accustomed to them. First in the morning; last in the evening—that would be my glasses. Recently, however, a …

Ben

This is strictly for fun.  I finally satisfied my curiosity about a local statue in my town.  Since I found it interesting, of course, I am sharing what I learned. Franklin is a college town with a population of about 20,000.  It is a nice town and an exceptionally safe place to live.  There is …

Pentecost

If you follow the liturgical church calendar, you know that today is Pentecost.  When it comes to practicing a cross-over of non-liturgical and liturgical, I follow both in my personal worship.  Odd.  I know.  That’s okay.  There must be a name for people like me but I don’t know what it is.  Possibly some Baptist …

Starved

As those of you who read this blog often know, I lost my little black hamster named Hank.  I really did love that little rodent!  Although I knew, like any pet, he could not be replaced, I bought another hamster.  It was a girl, the shop said, and another “panda” with a coat of spots …
