Jesus saves

While in Houston…we got a bit lost.  And while at one stop light.  There was an older church building surrounded and dwarfed on all sides by enormous sky scrapers.  On the old church building was a sign placed prominently on it’s steeple that just  said “Jesus Saves”.  And I thought what a great picture that […]

Dust

So I’m out on business travel again. This time down in Corpus Christi and then on to Houston and back to Austin and home on Friday.  It’s been a good trip so far.  But I’m really feeling weary from all the travel this month.  I’ve literally been gone more than I’ve been home.  And I […]

Regret and God

I awoke this morning early…more insomnia.  My mind hamster wheeling over regrets in my life. If I could go back in time, there are so many things that I would change.  So many failings and errors and wrongs I would prevent.  There are a few really big screw ups that I would REALLY like to […]

My anthem

God has shown us how to live, to live justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with Him.  That’s the word for me.  He is speaking words of tenderness over me.  He is rejoicing over me with singing.  Underneath me are the everlasting arms. Come what may…I need not fear.  His rod and his […]

The night is given

Life is a hard fight, a struggle, a wrestling with the Principle Evil, hand to hand, foot to foot.  Every inch of the way must be disputed.  The night is given us to take breath, to pray, to drink deep at the fountain of power.  The day to use the strength which has been given […]

Puritan prayer

Last night at LGBC Julie read the following AWESOME prayer, and I just have to quote it here: O Holy Spirit, As the sun isfull of light, the ocean full of water, Heaven full of glory, so may my heart be full of Thee. Vain are all purposes of love and the redemption wrought by […]

Ack

Man, I’m sick again.  And it’s that kind of crud that doesn’t lay you out completely.  It just makes it harder to do everything and is extremely annoying.

Happy Valentine's Day

It’s St. Valentine’s Day.  And I just realized I wasn’t really sure about the history of the day.  And so a quick perusal of Wikipedia revealed this.  Wow.  Sounds complicated.  Well, I do think it’s cool that it celebrates the history of at least some Saint who was martyred.  Cool in the sense of celebrating sacrifice which […]

Back again

I’m back from traveling all week.  It was pretty waring.  Thankfully the weekend has been restful.  Tomorrow it’s back to the races.
