The Storm| July 1, 2015
Years ago, I was gripped as I listened to a minister who for several years had faithfully served the church. His work had taken him all over this country. As he concluded his message, he told of one of the most frightening yet thought-provoking experiences of his life. He had been on a long flight from one place to another. The first warning of the approaching problems came when the sign on the airplane flashed on: Fasten your seat belts. Then, after a while, a calm voice said, "We shall not be serving the beverages at this time as we are expecting a little turbulence. Please be sure your seat belt is fastened."
Conflicting Choices| March 1, 2014
David and his life-long buddy, Jonas, stepped into the darkness of night as they left the singing and headed for the barn. Neither one had asked for a date as they stepped into the late winter night. Under the cover of darkness, David cleared his throat and then spoke: "I want to tell you what happened to me about a month ago. I hope you'll understand me better than some did whom I have talked to about it." "Does it have to do with our church rules and regulations?" Jonas wanted to know.

The Dream God Gave Me| January 1, 2014
It was time for the returning of Jesus...The Father was sitting on His throne. There were lots and lots of people sitting in the room. Then it was time for everyone to get in line and receive the Judgment from the Father. The line was endless! There were people I knew and lots of people I didn't know. At first I was surprised to see so many people were happy (they were saved.) but then the stream of lost souls (crying and angry) started pouring out of the building. It was a steady stream...double line...it was so sad! The ones left still standing...waiting in line... had to push their way thru the steady stream of lost souls.
The Lingering Christmas| January 1, 2014
It was a good thing that the Christmas carolers has bundled up snuggly in their dark-colored hats, bonnets, boots, and gloves as the snow swished across the countryside. David had been going with the young people to bring goodies and cheer to shut-ins for a few years. He had always loved to sing Christmas hymns with his strong voice, but tonight was different. It wasn't that he didn't still experience the sheer joy of singing, but this time he was not only pushing out words by using his own vocal cords, but it seemed that a voice was calling to him from deep down inside as they sang.
The Dream| October 31, 2013
"Oh, it's so strange," Mattie began. "Last night I had a disturbing dream but I didn't tell you about it, and now I've dreamed it again." "Well, what did you dream?" "I hate to admit it, but remember how you have been telling me that we can only be saved by the grace and love of God toward us?"

Choosing Our Cross| May 1, 2013
Sometimes I stop and wonder why God in his merciful love Sent His only son, Jesus, down from the beautiful heaven above. Was it because our gracious God could see beyond that huge loss, And this was the only way to teach us to accept our own cross?

Come Unto Me| July 1, 2012

Who Is My God?| November 1, 2011
He is the Loving Father I Run to, When: I'm weeping either from sorrow, or sadness, or pain, and He wipes away every tear from my eye. I'm feeling insecure and don't know which way to turn. I need a touch of His gentle hand on my soul to remind me Who is in control of all things in my life.

Baptized by My Spirit| July 15, 2011
"Papa, how can I show these people how much I want to live inside of them? Will they get it?" "It's okay, Son. We will think of a way to help them understand." Silence in heaven. Suddenly a voice of glory rings out. "I know! I will give them My body to eat and My blood to drink! Yeah!"

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made: The Heart| May 1, 2011
Our physical heart is responsible for pumping life-sustaining blood to the body. The blood contains nutrients (food) and oxygen that the body must have to live. Even though it is a small organ, about the size of a man's hand, it pushes blood along a 60,000-mile-long network of vessels! These vessels are like straws that the blood flows through.

Life Is Like Two Rails On A Railroad Track| March 1, 2009
People ask me, what is the purpose of life? And I respond: In a nutshell, life is preparation for eternity. We were made to last forever, and God wants us to be with Him in Heaven. One day my heart is going to stop, and that will be the end of my body-- but not the end of me.

No Perfect Church| March 1, 2009
It is related that a man once came to Charles H. Spurgeon, and asked that great preacher if his church was a pure church. He said he was looking for a pure church that he might belong to it. Mr. Spurgeon said that he did not know about his own church; but he did know that there were many good people in it-saintly people and truly Christian people.

An Old Farmer's Advice| January 1, 2009
Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight, and bull-strong. Life is simpler when you plow around the stump. Words that soak into your ears are whispered...not yelled. Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.
The Law of the Garbage Truck| November 1, 2008
I hopped onto the buggy and we took off for town. We were just driving along when suddenly out of nowhere, a team of horses, hitched to an old box wagon jumped out of a side road, right in front of us. My dad pulled back on the reins and our horse came to a quick stop; we just barely missed the side of the wagon.
The Tale of Two Horses| November 1, 2008
Just up the road from my home is a field, with two horses in it. From a distance, each horse looks like any other horse. But if you stop your buggy, or are walking by, you will notice something quite amazing.
