Praying For Our President

Whether you're a Christ-follower or simply believe in the power of prayer, you have an obligation this week. With this Presidential Inauguration, the first 100 days, and beyond...it's imperative the focus is upon prayer.

Goodbye Bones

The death of someone special or close is tough, but it seems even more so when that death is around Christmas. Of all the holidays, losing someone at this time is hardest. On Christmas Eve morn 2016, my family said goodbye to Bones the cat.

Today and Tomorrow, Being Side By Side


It began late last night. Shock, disbelief, anger, and grief. My Twitter and Facebook feeds began to try and capture many stunned emotions. Even my Instagram and Snapchat feeds began to showcase the dismay.

Of course, all the feeds contained the celebrations of many Trump supporters.

Reflecting back to the 2012 election, I was curious what some tweets may have been at that time from Romney supporters. What would be the tone and would the verbiage be similar? 

As Scripture says, "There is nothing new under the sun."

No Contest Comparing Reasons Not To Vote For Clinton And Trump

I doubt anything written by me will change anyone's mind regarding today's election. If you haven't already voted, your mind is likely made up. There's a slim to no chance of anyone influencing your decision.

But I hope that decision is to vote. Not voting is not an option.

Some people think their vote won't count, their vote won't make a difference, the election has already been decided or is rigged, or neither candidate deserves their vote. In 2012, Obama only won the popular vote by 5 million. Far more than that didn't bother to cast a vote that day.

Again, not voting today is not an option.

Antique Cars Take My Breath Away

Driving one Sunday morning, I came over a hill and repeated the same reaction I have with seeing any antique vehicle. An instant peace falls over me, regardless of my stress or distractions. This is immediately accompanied by a deep inhale and exhale and a sigh of contentment that's made me wonder if I belong in another time.

Thanks For Trashing My New Car

My daughter was waiting outside for me to take her to school. As I locked up the house, she walked over to the passenger door of our new Honda. Approaching her, I knew something was wrong in the way she was staring into the car. As I came beside her, it appeared someone had broken into the vehicle.

The passenger seat was covered with papers of various colors and sizes. It appeared to be trash, and none of which came from the car. I scanned the exterior body and went to the drivers door. No broken glass, no damage.
