The Blessing of the Lord God

Yesterday I mentioned the blessings in Deuteronomy Chapter 28. Just in case you have never read it, I decided to post it from the NLT version.

Deut 28:1-14
“If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the world. Continue reading

Be Blessed

We had quite a different service last night.
Our Bible study has started in Ephesians, where we only read the first three verses. We halted on the third one; Eph 1:3-All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.
This tells us that He has blessed us! Continue reading

Finding what you are not looking for!

Last year I upgraded my phone to an iPhone4s. I took my old iPhone3g and gave it to Linda.
She took her old phone and put it away.

Only a mother’s love

I remember a few years ago I was in San Augustine when I notice a bird’s nest underneath the courthouse pavilion. As I stared at it, wondering what kind of bird had built it; I saw something move from within the nest. I climbed atop a table and gazed into, what I can only describe as, the eyes of the most ugly bird I’ve ever seen. Continue reading

An only (but not lonely) child

I am an only child!
I have no brothers and no sisters but I do have many cousins and there is one in particular that I saw quite often as I was growing up, her name is Donna.
At times we were inseparable as we played or got in trouble. She was just about the closest thing to a big sister that I’ve ever had and perhaps I was a little brother to her because she, too, is an only child. Continue reading
