I Was Just Thinking

When I was asked to write a blog for Back To School, I thought, “You're kidding? Already? That means summer is almost over!” It's hard to believe it's that time of year again. As I write this my grandson Weston had his first day at 4K. His parents took a picture of him by a birch tree outside their home. It was deja vu for me. We took pictures of all our children by a birch tree outside our home on the first day of school each year. Pretty soon those pictures were circulating via text messages throughout our family.        MORE.....

As I thought about echoes, I thought about the echo of my life and my faith. Will there be any sound after I am gone? I watched the movie Gladiator again not that long ago, and the main character makes a statement that says “What we do in life echoes in eternity.”  While just a movie quote, this statement is true for our faith lives. What we do now to share our faith with those around us, to make ourselves useful and available for the Holy Spirit to work through will impact those around us.   more...

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”                                                                                                                        Hebrews 12:1-2

It’s all in the cloud today. Data, I mean. Cloud computing has been a buzz word and has earned its credibility in the technology world of late. more...
