Picking Nightcrawlers

“And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water . . . shall in no wise lose his reward.”  Matthew 10:42 We had a delightful rain this afternoon.  Rain in the summer brings back so many memories.  One of those memories involves nightcrawlers.  There are worms; then …

Biblegateway.com

Biblegateway did not pay me to write this!  I want to encourage you to read your Bible everyday and this is one way you can do this via internet.  I will always prefer my “paper” Bible but I see more and more people using electronic Bibles.  However you read the Bible, just read it!  It …

Peter, John, Thomas, and more. . .

In a moment. . .

Last Wednesday I had the wonder of listening to a retired Navy pilot who flew on and off air craft carriers during the 80’s and 90’s.  He began his presentation with, “I have taken off 784 times successfully, and landed 784 times successfully.  Without that ratio, I wouldn’t be here.” He went from a pilot …

D-Day

D-Day is always very sobering to me.  Yesterday I met a gentleman whose father is buried in France, a soldier who gave his life for the cause of a free world.   This morning I went in search of a few numbers to share with my friends at Hickory Creek Retirement Center and found the short …

Jehoiada, Jehosheba, and King Joash

This is my lesson for Hickory Creek tomorrow.  You may question:  These are older people, why teach this?  I teach this because it is the Word of God and every part of it is important.  I needed all of the background to make application to Psalm 1.  I hope that you find this nugget of …
