I overheard a man say that Jesus never made any mistakes.  He went on to quote Hebrews 4:15 that tells us Jesus never sinned.  Apparently this fellow never looked up the definitions of mistakes and sins.  There is a huge difference between cutting a board...

In addition to a CAT scan today I also had an echo heart examination.  (Researchers are preparing me for experimental treatment beginning in Philadelphia next week. They are eliminating variables in me, their white mouse.)  I thoroughly enjoyed the heart examination.  I got to watch...

I’m getting a Computerized Tomography, CAT Scan in the morning.  This thing takes pictures of everything.  When they are finished my insides will be like an open book.  My heart, liver, kidneys, etc. will be public.  I’ve had a scan before this and remembered Psalm...

There were a few people waiting for the elevator to arrive when a small group of young people suddenly appeared and pushed their way to the front and rushed in as soon as the doors opened.  I had to smugly smile to myself as I...

Our day began at 4 A.M. this morning.  At 6 A.M. I dropped my wife off at the Manchester NH airport for a not-so-long flight to Nashville, Tenn.  At 8 A.M. she called me from a bus on her way to Boston.  The plane in...
