Add to Your Faith: LOVE

Lately I have been thinking about a verse in 2 Peter chapter  1:7, “Add to your faith…godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection…Love for everyone“. What’s amazing to me is we can have “faith” and not have “Love” at least not the correct definition of Love. Jesus was trying to teach this to the young…

Bowie and the Lord’s Prayer

As I began to look for the perfect video performance in memory of the late David Bowie for the fb page, “I Remember Summer Concerts at Pine Knob in Michigan”, I felt a nudge to research his beliefs.

Liberty & Justice for All…

As we stood to say the Pledge of Allegiance the last few words stood out to me, almost as if they were prophetic: “… with liberty and justice for all“.  My husband and I were in the front row on the far left as he had signed up to speak for two minutes and thirty…

Bed, Bath and a Meal

The Sheep, the Goats and the Little Boy

Just the other day during my afternoon stroll down the long boardwalk to the river I encountered a new family fishing at the end of the pier.  As always, I generally approach by greeting them and proceed to ask the same question as I’ve asked many others time and time again, “Have you caught anything…

The Main Thing

“Something was missing. I was a successful minister and founding pastor of a church that grew from zero to three hundred and it wasn’t enough. I was a successful businessman earning a six-figure income with a bright future and it wasn’t enough. I had a gorgeous wife who loved me, two beautiful boys, and the…
