Keep your eye on the ball

Spring training is upon us. It’s time for a baseball story. I was the oldest of three boys. My Dad was our coach from the time we were old enough to wear gloves. Dad had a few one liners that he’d use to teach us the game but here’s my favorite. “Keep your eye on the ball,” he would say. Sounds simple enough…

Punxsutawney crazy

I don’t want to ruin your Groundhog Day. Just allow me to use this celebrated day to segue to a point worth making. People are gullible. They’ll believe most anything. There was a time that the majority believed the world was flat. How’d that turn out? It is rumored that some people actually believe that the groundhog…

Stuff

My wife and I are downsizing. It feels good! I would like to take credit but actually, it was her idea. She’s right. It’s time. We’re selling our five bedroom home and buying a condo. And we’re getting rid of stuff that we don’t need, want or have room for in our soon to be more modest dwelling. We move…

Whose fault is it?

We humans are really good at placing blame. I am chief among those who has little mercy for those who find themselves in difficult situations because of their own laziness or choices that they know will get them in trouble. I have learned that placing blame is a fairly common human response. The bible is full of stories that prove my…

Tacos for His Hands

Make plans to take the family out for dinner next week while supporting a worthwhile cause all at once. Here’s how. On January 30th, one of my favorite restaurants is teaming up with one of my favorite ministries for a fundraiser meal out. The Taco John’s at 4401 1st Avenue SE is donating 25% of their proceeds to His Hands…

Share the love with us

Share the love is back and I’m glad. This is our chance to provide shelter for the homeless in our area. Learn more. I hope you won’t let this opportunity pass you by without your prayerful response. Let the compassion of Jesus move you to bring grace to the least of our brothers. Jesus said, “For I was hungry and…

Sealed by the Spirit

I’ve been thinking about paint a lot lately. Paint. Most specifically I’ve been thinking about the redwood sealer that was slapped on our patio picnic table by “yours truly” last summer. About every three years, I’ve been sloshing on this thin, runny liquid that gives the table a reddish color…

The best kind of hope

It’s been said that you can live 40 days without food; three days without water; just a few minutes without air but only a few seconds without hope. Hope is that renewable resource that’s always calling out to you in your ears or maybe just as a thought inside your head. “Things are looking up.” “I believe…

Remember the good ol’ days

I remember the good ol’ days when many (or should I say most) retail stores were closed on Sundays. I believe the idea came from the fact that in the Christian tradition, many people in America honored the Sabbath by taking a rest from normal activities, including all forms of shopping. Today of course, many stores are open 24/7…

The kettle is a big deal

Don’t forget the kettle. The Salvation Army as they do each year is having their drive. Apparently, the Christmas season brings out the giving spirit in many and this wonderful organization actually depends on the generosity of millions to keep their mission strong throughout the year. If you’re like me though, you…
