What Do You Love the Most?

September 11, 2019

I recently read an excerpt from a book, Carlos Garcia (our Nicaraguan missionary) had posted online. It impacted me like lightening, as it strikes at the core of the “me” culture today.   “God is never going to change to make room for you in the Kingdom. It is you who must change.

Make Sure You Have the Right Attitude

Attitude is extremely important when flying an aircraft.   The “attitude” of a plane describes the angle of attack the plane has with respect to the horizon. In other words, how the plane is oriented with its nose down or up, will determine how the craft will reach or maintain altitude.

The End of Empathy

There is no arguing that we live in a shifting culture. Things that we took for granted 30 years ago are on their way out, or already gone. The victims of the shift are many.

It is no secret that I love Christmas. I love everything about the season. Christmas trees and Christmas decorations, Christmas blend coffee and Christmas carols.

Never too Late

October 17, 2018

I have a travel companion. No matter where I travel, it comes with me. It is a piece of wood, about two feet in length, 2 inches wide and a ¼ inch thick.
