Why can't each day be celebrated the way every New Year is? Why must we wait 365 days for another chance to express our optimism and hope that the next year will be better than the one just finished? Why can't we feel this way each morning as... read more

So this is Christmas according to the calendar on the wall. Looking out my window it looks just like yesterday and the day before. The sun arose as it always does, the barren fields lie dormant and the wind is softly blowing through the leafless... read more

What is Christmas anyway? Is it decorated trees, bustling malls, cookies and breads? Is it mangers, animals, shepherds and wise men? Is it candles, carols and special prayers? Is it visits to relative's homes complete with a big meal and opening... read more

It truly amazes me how shallow many Christians really are. Their idea of practicing their faith is at best to show up at church once a week and perhaps on Christmas Eve. Rarely, if ever, do spiritual thoughts enter their head and at no time are... read more

Do the words JESUS CHRIST flow naturally from your lips because they are the joy of your heart or are they encased in religion and thus a meaningless phrase? I am not a fan of dropping "Christ" and strictly calling our Lord and Savior... read more

The legendary football coach Vince Lombardi said that fatigue makes cowards of us all. I am here to say that fatigue also causes us to become dull, slow to react, insensitive and fair game for the enemy. Just as a fatigued gazelle inevitably is... read more

Last evening, as we were leaving a housewarming at some friends home, I strayed off the cement driveway, lost my balance and ended up falling flat on my stomach. In the 12 hours since the incident, I have suffered from the humiliation of falling,... read more

The victorious Christian walk is as much about enduring as it is overcoming. Joshua was victorious as he led the Children of Israel in capturing the Promised Land. Job was victorious as he hung on for dear life, resisting the temptation to curse God... read more

When I was 19 years old, I thought I knew everything. When I was 29 years old, I knew I knew everything. When I was 39 years old I knew I didn't know everything. When I was 49 years old I realized I knew very little. Soon I will be 59 and I know I... read more

Jesus healed ten lepers but only one came back to thank Him. While the other nine rejoiced in their healing, only one understood there was something more to be done than just enjoying the miracle of their healing. This one man returned to Jesus to... read more
