My wife and I stopped at a 50’s Diner this afternoon.  It is great fun to listen to Chubby Checker, Little Richard and the Beach Boys, while looking at pictures of Mickey Mantle and Joe Dimaggio decorating the walls.   A few booths away there were...

My dog and I were walking down our hill when I heard the lyrical sounds of the neighborhood ice cream truck.  Turkey in the Straw is one of the finest pieces of music ever composed. Much to my delight it was also coming down the...

Truth is not just a what but a who. Paul wrote, “I know in whom I have believed and He is able.”   In John 14:6 Jesus said, “I am . . . the truth.”  Jesus did not say, “I know the truth.”  Nor did He...

I am fairly sure there are days God doesn’t like me.  I know He loves me but loving and liking are two very different things.  I officiated at a marriage several years ago where it was evident the couple didn’t like each other.  So why...

It was one of those days.  I was standing still and was sweating.  I could have turned on the air conditioner in the house but my wife says I’m cheap.  I prefer to call it frugal.  So we did the next best thing.  We got...
