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.

Songs From Haven - One Thing Remains

My wife, Denice, and I started a new video series called, "Songs from Haven." We will be recording some of our favorite songs and hopefully yours too while we are up in Cascade at Hummingbird Haven. The title of the first song is called, "One Thing Remains" which was written by Kristian Stanfill.

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.

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.

2 Corinthians 4:7 (NIV) But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.

Completely Dead - 10/18/2017

halloween_grassRANDOM THOUGHTS:  It is crazy how some people take care of their yards and others just let them go to poo.

My wife and I took a walk tonight and came across this yard with most of the front yard completely dead. Such a shame.

The Little Things - 10/17/2017

The Little ThingsSHORT THOUGHTS:  I really love corn on the cob, even if it is just a mini one from the Idaho Pizza salad bar.

Sometimes, things come in ways we don't expect or appear looking differently than we thought they would and can slip right by unnoticed if we are not careful.

My Cup Runneth Over - 9/25/2017

sippy_cupsRANDOM THOUGHTS:  Last night, Denice had a "wine" accident. Not a "whine" accident which is very different and much...much more...well, it's just different.

Last night when she took a drink and went to put it down, she set it on the edge of something and the glass tipped, sending wine all over the place.  Yes, it was not a really grape situation.  This immediately caused a mild, red wine on the couch and carpet, panic.

The Pretzel - 8/8/2017

RANDOM THOUGHTS: So, today I was tricked into doing some exercises.  Yes, my wife, Denice is a tricky one no doubt.

Last night before bed, she asked me if I would like to do some yogurt in the morning.  I was like, "Wow, I like yogurt...let's do some!"  I am always up for new things and so I was glad to introduce yogurt to our morning routine.  Then the morning came and there was no yogurt waiting for me, there was just this YouTube video on the TV screen.
