Back a Real Champ

The lights went down. Spotlights began to circle the area. Music started to swell. Then the announcer came on the P. A. system and said, "Time now for your University of Kentucky WILDCATS!!!" Welcome to college basketball at its finest. Welcome to Rupp Arena, home of the University of Kentucky Wildcats. There are not too many places on earth that you can watch a basketball game in any better…

Back a Winner

Anna Kournikova. Remember her? She took the professional tennis world by storm as a young woman. She had it all was what we were told. Mostly what she had was enough game to play well and enough beauty to make a living with endorsements because she looked good in a commercial. Got a quick question for you. Name the tournaments that she won. Go ahead, I'll wait. And wait. And wait. That's…


My son loves balloons. Every time we go through Wal-Mart or visit a carnival or or special event where balloons are sold, my son begs for one.

Why do kids love balloons? Is is because balloons are free-spirited and unpredictable? Because they are higher than we are (and kids always want to be up higher)? Perhaps it's their resilience. Balloons can be batted around and knocked down and still…

Batteries Not Included

The only thing my nine-year-old really wanted for Christmas was a remote control transforming (ugly) toy that can go through water and mud. The first words out of my mouth were "It's not coming back into my house after it goes mudding!"

Only one local store carried it and they only had two. The price was exorbitant for a toy, so I went back and put it on lay away. I knew nothing ever comes…

Be Afraid Be Very Afraid

I have been facing some of my fears as they have been exhibiting themselves in different forms in my life this past week. One morning I woke up and just felt scared. I felt guilty and inadequate and wasn't sure if God could really use me. For some reason on this particular morning I woke up dwelling on some past lost battles which I felt I had lost. I don't know what exactly triggered it but I…

Be Careful

It might not necessarily be fun, but it is always interesting to watch something happen that really need not happen, but it happens anyway. I got rear-ended yesterday. Truly. Hit from behind by another motor vehicle. This is the third time I have had this happen to me. All three have been easily seen as they were about to happen. I have watched all three in my rearview mirror. It is a hopeless…

Be Careful to Remember

In . In a very simple and symbolic gesture, Samuel picked up a rock, set it at a particular geographic location, and named it 'Thus far God has helped us' as a remembrance of what God had done for Israel on that day. Hitherto the Lord had helped Israel, and it was imperative that Israel would remember God's help going forward. How easy it is for us to forget the goodness and provision of God and…

Be Fruitful

My daughter, Kara, and her husband, Vince, love dogs. No, I mean it, they really love dogs. My son-in-law especially. He becomes attached to dogs so very easily. Let's face it. There's something special about dogs that cats don't have. Walk in the door of a home where a cat lives and you probably won't know it, unless there's that odor. But walk in the door of a home with a dog and you know…

be still
I get to the screaming point. I want to shout out the truth, but to no avail.
I work and work at trying to be what God wants me to be and I always fail.

Help me, Lord.
Carry me over the fjord.
The chasm is deep and
I weep.

Dry my tears.
Release me from my fears.
Carry the truth to those ears
that refuse to hear
the truth.

Put back that hair that I have pulled out.
Rub the steel…

Be Still and Know He Is God

verse which speaks volumes to those of us who are prone to anxiety, worry, fear, and doubt. It says, 'Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.' The King James Version has the more often quoted phrase which reads, 'Be still, and know that I am God.' The Hebrew word from which we get the phrase 'be still,' raphah[1], could mean…
