Money thoughts 2.0

Ok, after a day or so to chew on the whole $$ issue I thought a good counter-point might be in order.  That is to say, in order to be balanced, I would like explore the usefulness and role of money.  I have established my concern about how the love of money can be extremely […]

John on Atheist Church

Hey!  John Jensen was recently the guest on a show called Atheist Church.  And John’s brother is doing the interviewing!  The interviews are really good and I do recommend you check them out.  There is some profanity in them.  Which isn’t a problem for me.  And the content makes it very worth viewing even if you have a […]

the love of money

I feel lead to speak about something that is long over due.  And that’s money.  Jesus said that the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.  And he added that you can’t serve both God and money.  Now, I’ve heard it said that it is the loving of money that is evil…and […]

Soak in His presence

If you live in North Texas, than you know that we’ve been having a really long stretch of rain.  And it’s the kind of rain that is not hard…but it’s constant.  It soaks into the ground gently without causing destructive flood.  But it’s a real rain true enough.  If you stood out in it for long enough you’d […]

Too soon

I miss Patrick Swayze already.  He seemed like such a great guy.  One in a million by Hollywood standards.  I’m always in awe of celebrities who remain married to the same person (i.e. and don’t have multiple partners).  It’s clearly not easy to do so by the casualties displayed in the lives of celebrities.  Patrick […]

Interest

Boy, you know people are losing interest in your blog when not even the spammers care as much about it any more!  Lol!  Now twitter…that’s a different story!  😉

Blog life expectancy

Cleaned up my blog roll.  It’s amazing the number of blogs that have bit the dust.  Kind of sad really…but natural.  Not all blogs are going to have elephantine life expectancies.  I don’t know that this one will.  So, I’ve exceeded the rabbit life expectancy…will I make to the dog and cat averages?  Who knows.  […]

Night prayer

Got the following from Father Bosco Peters from NZ.  It is a NZ Night Prayer (Anglican??).  Whatever it is, it’s awesome:  Eternal Spirit, Earth-Maker, Pain-Bearer, Life-Giver, Source of all that is and that shall be. Mother and Father of us all. Loving God, in whom is heaven: The hallowing of your name echo through the universe! The […]

The kindness of our Savior

I was looking for a passage about the kindness of God, and came across this (Titus 3, Message):  -2Remind the people to respect the government and be law-abiding, always ready to lend a helping hand. No insults, no fights. God’s people should be bighearted and courteous.  3-8It wasn’t so long ago that we ourselves were […]

Hope

Things seem hopeless to me today.  Mind you, I know cognitivally that’s not true.  There is always hope.  And being so tired I realize influences the way I feel.  But, the situation I’m in feels like beating my head against a wall.  As always, the answer is to rest in Christ.  Stop whatever striving I am doing.  Stop […]
