So, I mentioned a few days ago how I’m using Proverbs as part of my daily reading.  As I’m finishing up Chapter 27 today I read this: “Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds;  for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for [...]

I Found A Good Spouse!

“He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord.” - Proverbs 18:22 (NIV) So, I’ve been reading through Proverbs as part of my daily devotions.  One of the cool things about the book of Proverbs – 31 chapters – you can read one a day (I know, some months have [...]

Thoughts about the 15th

I know it’s been a full last week and a half but I finally wanted to get my thoughts up here.  As I mentioned on the 14th – the 15th was my last Sunday leading worship in Wadsworth.  To say it was an emotional morning for Beth and I is an understatement. Jim’s sermon spoke [...]

Showing God’s Love

So, earlier this week I posted the story about Jason McElwain.  An example of a school getting behind one of their classmates and supporting him and loving him.  Then there is this story.  Maybe you’ve already seen it – I first saw it a few months ago – but it’s worth watching again. This is [...]

An amazing story…

So, the Super Bowl was Sunday night.  While last year’s game was amazing, this years games was as good – if not better.  Congrats to the Steelers.  As a life-long Browns fan I can hope to one day enjoy that same  feeling. Of course the other story on Sunday nights was the ads.  There were [...]
