Vincent Van Gogh is one of my favorite painters. I have had a love for art since Middle School. Our art teacher, Mr. Gibson, was so awesome and opened my eyes to so much. Middle school is when I learned how to draw. My mom is very artistic. She started her own business in the 80’s painting signs. She used …

This is a router thing at my work in the TV room. I have to use it by pushing two buttons and then “take” so it will do what I need it to. It is counting down the days, hours, minutes and seconds of the year. I took this on Monday when I was making the DVD and video for …

This post is another part of yesterdays from my Pastor’s Sunday message. It might have a few of the same things, but I felt like it needed to be said.For whatever reason, when bad things happen to us, a lot of people blame God. Even with insurance issues… let’s say lightening hits your house. It’s labeled as “An Act of …

My Pastor had another great message yesterday. I have learned a lot during this series that he did. In John chapter 16, Jesus was talking to His disciples about life. In verse 20 He tells them that grief will turn to joy. Verse 33 is the one I have a picture of. Jesus warned us that we WILL have trouble …

We all need a little hope. Hope is “the feeling that what is wanted can be had.” Defer means to delay. So put off hope makes the heart sick. Humans need hope. We all need to know that things will be ok, a hope for tomorrow, the knowledge that bad seasons end. Are you giving hope to someone? Tell them …

This morning, I am thinking about time. There are several songs about it. My main thought is this: “Time is the most valuable thing you can give anyone. It is something that you can not take back.”Sometimes, I feel like I waist other people’s time. Well, and on the same note, I guess I feel like some have done the …

Life can be rough! We all go through seasons that get us down, and it seems like everything is coming at you “90 to nothing” like one of my best friends always says! The amazing thing about being a Christ follower is that we have Him and tools to help us over come the rough spots.I love Mandisa’s song Overcomer! …

Christians, we have an enemy. I do not like to talk about him, but nevertheless, he is real. One of my favorite authors, C.S. Lewis wrote a fictional book called The Screwtape Letters. It was his idea of how demons work on us. Screwtape is the head demon and he writes letters to his protege, Wormwood. Here is line from …

In Matthew  25: 14-29 Jesus taught a parable about a man who gave three men “talents”. In that culture, a talent was money. But this was a parable… so that means that it was a story used as an example. The “Master” gave one man 5 talents, another man 2, and the last man 1. The dude with 5 talents …

Another part of my Pastor’s message on Sunday had to do with the mountains in our lives. Somehow we have it ALL wrong!In Hebrew culture, “mountain” means anything that sets itself between you and God. These mountains keep us from face to face intimacy with Jesus. We take the mountain as our own. When we try to move the mountain, we end …
