You Gotta Move

There is a regular reading plan that I try to follow everyday. And for years, I have been following it. It is one of those “Read the Bible in a Year” plans that start on January 1st with Genesis 1:1 and finish on December 31st with Revelation 22:21. When I first began, I just readContinue reading “You Gotta Move”

Bearing False Witness

Recently, our pastor has been teaching on the “Ten Commandments”. One by one, he has been teaching what it is, why we should obey it, and how we should put into to practice in our lives. It has been lovingly put forth in a way that is relational and helpful without bashing anyone with legalism.Continue reading “Bearing False Witness”

Parenting A Child Vs. An Adult

As I have mentioned before, I have four sons. One of my sons is an adult. And for the past few months, it has been difficult to support them in a way I fully want to and need to but can’t. It is physically and emotionally impossible to fill all of their needs at theContinue reading “Parenting A Child Vs. An Adult”

Seeing a Fuller Picture of a Verse

John 6:29 Jesus answered, “The work of God is this; to believe the one he has sent.” Do you have a memory verse this week? One of those verse that you read and say, I need to learn this so that I can recite it without reading it at times? Right now, my verse isContinue reading “Seeing a Fuller Picture of a Verse”

Rationalizing Your Actions

There was an article that I read this morning that really resonated with me. It is convicting, humbling, and edifying. And usually, I would not post a “reaction” article to something I read in anything other than the Bible, but I think that at times information needs to be shared among each other in theContinue reading “Rationalizing Your Actions”

Change in Your Lens

I just woke up from a dream that the earth imploded sending me to a different planet. My only objective once realizing I am in another place is to find my guys, especially, for some reason, my youngest son. So go ahead and read this, analyze it, and tell me what you think about it.Continue reading “Change in Your Lens”

Divisions in the Home

This morning has been hectic, but most mornings are. This got me thinking about various characteristics of my household members. Some of us are literal slugs in the morning. But when it comes to the night time, we can’t seem to quiet ourselves down enough to sleep until the wee hours of the morning. TheContinue reading “Divisions in the Home”

Quiet Time

Did you know that having “quiet time” is very important principle that Jesus Himself exemplified for us? In Matthew 14: 22-23 ESV, “22 Immediately, he made the disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. 23 And after he had dismissed the crowds, he wentContinue reading “Quiet Time”

Allergy

I keep looking on the band on my arm that reads “ALLERGY”. It’s on a red band in big, bold letters. It is wrapped around my wrist along side my white identification band. I used to also have to wear a bright yellow band that read “FALL RISK”, but that one, thankfully, is no longerContinue reading “Allergy”

Dating My Son

Today, I decided to go on a date with my son. I am trying to do this once a month with each of my sons. My oldest one is super busy with “adulting”. However, my younger three are free for me to hang out with most days. I truly believe that kids, in general, needContinue reading “Dating My Son”
