Some Kind of Clivity - 8/23/2018

RANDOM THOUGHTS: HOW MY MIND WORKS:  My daughter, Sheila, is very interested in the DNA sites and sent hers in recently to 23andMe for results.  Since then, she has been getting contacted by various cousins she did not know about.  She now has me interested in it now and wants me to get mine done too.  I guess, maybe I feel left out that I am not getting contacted by various cousins that I don't know.

My Help - 7/18/2018

My HelpSHORT THOUGHTS: I saw this beautiful sunrise while walking my pup this morning.

I did not sleep very good last night and I was really, really dragging. I didn't even want to take my dog, Buster, for a walk but he was not having it. So off we went with Buster dragging me behind him.

Then we turned the corner and saw this. It brought to mind the truth that even when I am weak and tired, God is still strong and mighty. His love never fails us.

Nothing But the Blood - 7/2/2018

SHORT THOUGHTS:  There are so many religions in this life telling us the way to get to God.  Do these things...don't do that.  Give up this...adopt that. All with the goal of moving us closer and working our way to God.  All religions except for one that is.

As a Christian, you don't find your way to God.  God, the creator of the universes, the heavens and the earth, the stars in the sky, the forests, the rivers, the oceans and the creator of you and the creator of me...came to us.

Song From Haven - Nothing But the Blood

God's love for us is the one thing in this life that will never fail us. Check out this awesome message about the One that loves us the most and knows us the best.

Dunk-Tismal (R) Madness - 3/22/2018

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  I just had a break with my friend Mitch and Larry.  In our number of amazing conversation topics today, different kind of baptismal's came up.  Larry said his son, Brian's church used a big metal trough and in my mind I pictured the pastor lining people up to be baptized and saying, "Moooove along" and I may have moo'd out loud.  I'm not certain about that.

Frankenstory - 11/2/2017

frankincenseSHORT THOUGHTS:  So do you think that if Dr. Frankenstein had used a lot more of this Frankincense, that his son's life may have turned out totally differently than it did?

Without Him - 10/20/2017

SHORT THOUGHTS:  We are weak and fragile but our Savior is strong and mighty.  All our strength, all that we are, comes from Him.  Without Him, we are all lost.

Carry on,
