A debt free eternity

     Last week I was watching a Dave Ramsey seminar on Youtube.  I have always enjoyed listening to him on the radio, giving financial advice to people who call his show.  The 50 minute video was about getting on top of your financial house.  You need a ladder to get on top of your financial house, …

                                         B or Not 2 B

   Years ago when I was attending Business College we had an intermediate accounting course entitled "Accounting – 2B." Almost everyday as we went up the steps to the second floor where we had the class, we woul…

A time of thanksgiving

This is a great time of the year! In November we celebrate Thanksgiving and now in December the birth of Jesus (Christmas). We get time off of work, get together with family, friends, eat too much, and simply enjoy the season.

When we think about Thanksgiving, we have so much to thank God for tha…

Decent and Orderly

               "Let all things be done decently and in order."                                                                      Paul is talking to the Corinthians about using spiritual gifts in the worship service. However, I believe this still applies to today's worship service. Today we have p…

Far Richer than Solomon

  Richer than Solomon?

After reading 1 Kings 10, we come to an understanding of the great wealth Solomon was given by God. Much of it was gained as gifts for his wisdom- he was sought by men and women throughout the world. Reading about him and his life in the Old Testament, we learn that he was b…

Apologize and Forgive

  A couple of years ago, on a Friday afternoon, I had a work related disagreement with a co-worker.  It had been a stressful week and we both lost our cool.  I can't even remember what the arguement was about, but it was of little importance.  This took place at the end of our work day and we both l…

Life's Struggles are Truly a Blessing

The Eagle has the longest life span among all birds. The Eagle can live up to 70 years! But, to reach this age, the Eagle must make some hard decisions. When the Eagle reaches approximately 40 years old, its long and flexible talons can no longer grab its prey. The long and sharp beak of the Eagle a…

Simple, yet profound

 
                                                            
   This blog will be simple – yet profound. I must hastily explain lest I be accused of haughtiness. 
   This blog is simple because it consists of nothing but Scriptures. This blog is also pro…

Contentment

  My brother and I cut wood for a living, and recently we cut for an elderly couple. The man is 88 and his wife is a little younger. They seem to be in generally good health, they do gardening and are very involved with their family and church. It is a joy to talk to them, especially the man because…

What do you believe?

 

   Here is just a little background to paint the picture: Out where we live, most blocks are one mile long. A set of train tracks cuts a number of the roads in half as it runs diagonally across them. A few Saturdays ago, I was heading along my normal route when a sign at the corner said, “…

Choosing a road

     A few weeks ago, my twelve year old son gave a short lesson for our young men's training class that I would like to share with you here.
      When we go to church services, there are many different roads that we can choose from to get there.  For our eternity, there are only two roads.  Th…

A Kind and Giving Heart


  This past week my family and I went to Chicago for a week. We saw and experienced many beautiful things. It was a wonderful trip! There was one thing that stood out to me most and that was my son's attitude towards the homeless. I have never seen an attitude of real concern in a young individual …

A TRUE CATASTROPHE

When you hear the word “catastrophe” what do you think of?  An entire city destroyed by a tornado, hurricane, or tsunami?

Webster’s Dictionary defines “catastrophe” as a momentous tragic event ranging from extreme misfortune to utter overthrow or ruin.

When we think about the brethren, …

Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country...

    It was about fifty years ago when President Kennedy made that speech.  He received great support and praise for it.  How our country has changed!  Now we hear about entitlements …

Garden Work

 

   It is the time of year (at least here in Wisconsin) when those that have gardens are busy getting them ready for the growing season. The warmer days and bright sunshine help put us in the mood to grow flowers and/or vegetables. There is a satisfaction that comes with working on helping …

Spend Time With Your Kids

     My Dad... What can I say about the man?  He is the one person I know who can do anything.  Over my 44 years of life he has never ceased to amaze me with his knowledge and abilities.  When the problems of life overwhelm me, he is the one I turn to for help and advice.  He is a good christian hus…

What is the most important thing in life?

Most people would answer this question by talking about family and friends. Some would appreciate stability and the comforts that this life has to offer. But how do we make clear what is important- by what we say or what we do? All too often we are good at saying one thing and doing another. We may …
