RANDOM THOUGHTS: I just got done listening to a commercial for a new drug. At the end of the commercial, it listed all the side effects which like normal, were many. Then it said you could not use it if you had an organ transplant.
I turned to my lovely wife, Denice, and said that I had not ever had an organ transplant but that I had moved our piano twice now. She agreed by just saying yes, we had. But I don't think she even cracked a smile.

SHORT THOUGHTS: Not all things are meant to be held together as they might have always been. Sometimes we have to let things go and let things become whatever they become.
We may want and see something a certain way in our lives but that does not mean what we see and want is what is best. Sometimes God’s best for us looks very difference…wait…almost always…God’s best for us looks very different than what we think it should look like.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: So this morning after coming in and filling up my water bottle, I promptly knocked it over and tried unsuccessfully to catch it and it ended up clanking (metal) a couple times on it's way to falling off my desk and into my garbage can. When this happened, I had headphones on and was listening to the news. While I continued listening to the news, I began to clean up the little bit of water that had spilled along with some of my tea that I spilled trying to not let my water bottle spill.

SHORT THOUGHTS: Psalm 115:2-8 were the verses from my reading this morning in my closet time. There were more verses after this and one before but I just kind of stopped reading like there was a stop sign when I got to these. Then I read them again and maybe even again and absorbed them.
The last verse just spoke so loudly to my soul. We become like our idols. Likewise, my logic tells me that the concept is also true that when we follow God, we begin to look more and more like a son or daughter of our Loving Father.

SHORT THOUGHTS: We all go through hard times in this thing we call...life. But we never go through them alone. Oh, we may think we are alone for sure but truth is...God is right there, going through our hard times and all other times with us. His presence is with us always. When we feel we are all alone, it is not because God is not there. What is missing is our awareness...our ability to see and notice God right there all around us, in

RANDOM THOUGHTS: A man, his dog, reclining in a chair in Cascade, Idaho. Does it get any better than this?
Well...it would be better if I had my wife with me here.
And...if all six of my girls were here.
And...if all seven of my grandkids were here.
And...if I had three large pizzas, half Canadian bacon, half pepperoni and sausage.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: 4am...we are not friends. To be truthful, I really don't like you very much at all. In all of my 55 years on this earth, I do not ever remember a time that I have been glad to see you when you when I saw you face to face. In fact, it is always just the opposite and I always wish you would just go away.
