SHORT THOUGHTS: I read these words this morning in my prayer time and they were just so true that I had to share them with you all.
To me, if we just open our eyes and our ears, the evidence of God's existence is literally...everywhere. He is in the things that "just happen" like clockwork every single day...the seasons coming and going...the beauty in all creation all around us. He is calling out to us everywhere if we will just open our eyes and our ears and see Him and hear Him.

SHORT THOUGHTS: Who couldn't use a straight path? So much of life does not make sense to me. But that is not so with God. He sees everything from the beginning to the end. He sees what will be where we see what is now. He see us for who we will become where we see us for who we are now. He removes our sins as far as the east is from the west while we remember all of our shortcomings.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: I had a thought a few minutes ago and so I thought I would just run it by you all and see what you think.
If a "MOTORCADE" by definition is a procession or parade of automobiles or other motor vehicles...and a "BARRICADE" is a defensive barrier hastily constructed, as in a street, to stop an enemy...then why isn't a "BEARICADE" by definition a procession or parade of bears or other bear like animals or a defensive sleuth of bears hastily brought in, as in a street, to stop an enemy???

RANDOM THOUGHTS: I just thought of something so cool that I just had to share it with you all. You are very welcome...in advance.
As I was walking to get a cup of "wake me up" coffee...this thought...wonderful gift even, possibly even epiphany occurred to me.
If I ever become rich and I am able to buy my own town, I am promptly going to change the name to "Cognito." Then whenever some asks me where I am, I can say...wait for it...a little longer...almost there, "Well, I am in-Cognito."

RANDOM THOUGHTS: So last night, on the eve of my 55th birthday, as normal, right before bed, I used the restroom.
As I was "sitting" there and finishing up, just minding my own business...I leaned. When I did, there was a fairly loud snap and everything in life suddenly shifted. Luckily, upon inspection and to my great relief, the snap was not my spine, hip, collarbone or any other important part of my body. What is was, was my toilet seat.

JOURNAL: In the last few months, two things that I have been praying for, for a long, long time have made sudden progress. When I was praying and thanking God for these things, God had a moment with me where He suddenly reminded me of a great truth.

SHORT THOUGHTS: Today, I am thankful for all the little things I see all around me that make me smile and sometimes outright laugh. I am thankful for the sunrises and sunsets, the awesome beauty God finger paints in the skies on a daily basis and for all the wonderful things in creation that He has made for me to live in.

JOURNAL: Now I love manuals. Whenever I get a new product, I almost always save the manual, even if I know that I may never, ever look at it again. When I was younger, I use to put them all in a big file in a filing cabinet and every now and then throughout the years, I have actually had to go find one to get some useful information out of it. But most of the time that does not happen. Most of the time they just sit in the filing cabinet year after year, some way past the time I even have the pr

JOURNAL: I work for a large company in Boise. It takes at least 10 minutes to walk from one side of the company to the other. And that is if you walk pretty fast. They have many parking lots to accommodate all the people and depending on when you come in, you can have a bit of a hike walking in to your building.

JOURNAL THOUGHTS: These verses (Ezekiel 36:26-27) at the end of this story are part of my memory verses. This morning when I was going through my verses and recited these two, I stopped and thought more about them.
