S The most high rules in the kingdom of men

"Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works [are] truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase." Daniel 4:37 (Read Daniel 4) Continue Reading »

S Why I won't be in heaven....

Again and again I hear preachers telling mourning loved ones that this person is, without a doubt, in heaven because of how much he loved Jesus, how many people's lives she touched, how strong a faith he had or how much good she accomplished in her lifetime. Continue Reading »

S A Walk in the Park

This writing comes just after the wrap up of a weekend keeping our 3-year-old grandson, Canyon. After two very full and eventful days with us, his family picked him up and they rolled down the driveway and out of sight. Continue Reading »

S Where's the summer, where's the rain?

Where's the beef? Remember that old Burger King commercial? Or was it Wendy's? It could have been Arby's or McDonald's or Hardee's, or Sonic. It really doesn't matter; it's the "meat" of the ad we remember. Continue Reading »

S Forgive and smile; it makes life more pleasant

S I'd stop along the road to Grandma's house

Summer to me was freedom from a long winter of being cooped up in the house, or bundled up in about 20 pounds of clothing if we did get to go outside. Not that we didn't have fun in the winter time, but summer was just better. Continue Reading »

S Be thankful we aren't fighting plagues of frogs

I got my leather gloves out of the truck and pulled the sharpshooter spade from the back. The thistles are growing good this year and I fight them constantly. We sprayed and the offspring spot spray several times every summer. I dig the nasty, evil weeds up and haul them to a burn pile. I will never understand how snakes and thistles continue to thrive when the rest of the animals and plants turn up and die! Pun intended. Continue Reading »
