I asked myself what you would want to know about me!
It’s a difficult answer and has many rabbit trails.
Perhaps it would be best to tell you what I want you to know about me.
I need you to know that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Phil 4:13) and I believe that with my whole heart.
I was born in 1957 in Baytown, Texas. I was born again in 1975, also in Baytown, and moved to East Texas later that year.
In between those years I broke 3 bones, fell off a railroad tanker car, my parents got divorced and each remarried, and I attended Highlands Elementary, Highlands Jr. High, and Ross Sterling High School.
I never did drugs. I actually believed the commercials that only dopes do dope and I didn’t want to be one. I did try smoking cigarettes but they made me cough and drinking made me uncoordinated, so I have abstained from either.
I met and eventually married the love of my life, Linda. I was introduced to her by the Love of my life, Jesus. Both of them were glad I didn’t do drugs, smoke, or drink.
My wife and I have two children and five grandchildren.

I do a blog/devotion every day called Morning Thought from Pastor Tim.
Several years ago I was fascinated at how the New Testament writers would include Old Testament scripture in their writings. Often if you run the reference on the O.T. scripture you’ll scratch your head and wonder how they applied that to their N.T. writing. Of course, it’s the Holy Spirit inspiring them. But I thought it would be neat to apply scripture to everyday life; to surroundings and situations. That’s how I started Morning Thoughts.
I’m just ignorant to believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God and the only truth for us. I don’t read too many other books, I just stick to the basics of the Bible.
