Last month, my Pastor taught on the Upside Down Kingdom of God. He spoke about how people think the Kingdom should be one way, when in reality, it’s not that way at all. For example, back in the day, the Jewish people thought a powerful ruler would rise up and help them overtake the Roman Empire and get them out …

I’m sure he has been sitting there with his wife and maybe another neighbor enjoying good conversation.I have a set up much like that, only with 2 chairs and an empty flower pot …

Yesterday, one of our dogs got off her lease and ran off. We haven’t had to chase a dog in a while. (So, I guess I shouldn’t complain.) As I walked on the side of the ditch that separates my older part of the neighborhood from the newer part, all I saw was weeds. All different types just growing together, …

The story of the sower who put out seeds can be found in Mark 4: 3 â€śListen! A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came …

Have you ever noticed that grass doesn’t really grow under trees?  I mean, you see paintings, and every once in a while, a picture of thick beautiful grass under trees….but it’s been my experience, especially in my own yard, that it’s really hard for grass to grow underneath trees.   I love trees. This one in the picture is amazing …

My flower beds had gotten overgrown with weeds. It has rained so much, that the weeds had gotten out of control. I’d been lazy too, and hadn’t pulled them in a long time. Today was the day to get it done. So, I did it.As you can imagine, this got me thinking about the God. I have always had this …

One of my friends posted on Facebook this morning about how he has a long week ahead of him.   I thought, “There are still only the 5 working days of the week, so how will it be a long week?”   Then, I realized, it’s all in our thoughts and how we see something. If we focus on the …

This morning, as I was walking the dogs, I kept hearing owls “Whooing” and talking to each other. One owl would make it’s sound, and another owl in another part of the neighborhood, repeated and made the same sound.  I heard other birds, some making the same sounds, others making totally different sounds.This got me to thinking about human communication. …

This past month, I have been using my Visalus shake mix to help lose weight. Cool thing is, it worked! I’m down at least 12 pounds and toning up. I’ve made a commitment to this and exercise as a life style change.It’s raining here today, but I woke up and walked my dog anyway. In the rain. That takes commitment. …
