Hebrews 13:2, Hebrews 12:12-13, Hebrews 13:16 How many times have we all found ourselves driving along a road or highway daydreaming and in an instant we lose sight of where we are or where we are going? We’ve all missed a sign or turn and took an unplanned route as a result of our inattention. Our own personal distractions, foggy spiritual focus as well as [...]

Recently I was praying about my busy schedule and I asked God to help me sort it all out. It was all good stuff... things that honored Him.

A Surprising Perspective

By | 2018-03-08T20:19:57-07:00 July 20th, 2015|Blog|

As our plane approached LAX on the evening of our return from a vacation, a large number of passengers began making o-o-oh sounds. I glanced out my window and saw a most amazing and surprising sight - fireworks exploding everywhere for miles. It was an awesome and most interesting perspective of our nation's birthday celebration for the 4th of July. Of course I have seen [...]

Running the Race in Stride
