A word for Believers—-“while the world around us rages, the world within us can know a strange stillness and an unexpected calm....”
Read John 16:31-33 and reflect on the important thoughts in that passage.
For me one of the most important thoughts is this---God the Father was with Jesus. And, in the same way, Jesus, the Prince of Peace, is with us. He will never leave us. He will never forsake us.

THE LOVE OF GOD
CASTS OUT ALL FEAR
OF THE CORONA VIRUS
Perfect love casts out all fear of the Corona Virus (I John 4:18). It may take a few weeks, but I believe that evil virus is being overcome by our words of faith. We are more than conquerors through Christ. Also it is important for us to meditate on what God’s Word says about God’s Love, as we did in the last blog I wrote. Perfect love casts out fear. Today ...Read Full Post »

I grew up hanging around my Mom’s Beauty Shop in Atlanta, Texas. I would sometimes go there on early release days from school, and just hang out. I would go next door to Walker’s Drug Store for an Ice Cream Float or Soda. I would sweep her floors, load her coke machine, take out her trash or whatever she needed as a way of earning my allowance. Her shop was always a busy place. Usually people waiting, one in the chair, and a couple sitting under the dryers. She had a couple of ...Read Full Post »

Now my Brother and I were something else when we were growing up. If it crossed our mind, we usually did it……..Not so smart I might add. We never thought too much about if someone would get hurt, our philosophy was, ” if it makes someone laugh….well it was all worth it”. I think my a Brother was the more mean of the two of us, but that’s just my opinion of coarse. There have been several times in my adult life since the birt...Read Full Post »

” TIED UP “
When I was young we had a Bulldog, named Buddy. He was a good squirrel dog as well as watch dog. He was actually part Hound and part Bulldog. You could not keep him in a pen. He would either climb out or dig out. But anyone he didn’t know, he would bite, so we had to put him on a chain a lot of times. He loved to go riding in the truck. He would stand and look over the dash out the window. Once while drivin...Read Full Post »

” JESUS LOVES ME, THIS I KNOW “
When I was a kid my Mom always sang to us when she tucked us in bed or when she held us when we were sick. The song that seemed to just come out of her was, “Jesus Loves Me”. You don’t really hear the song too much today. I wonder if it is even still taught in our children’s churches, nurseries, or if Mom’s today still sing it to their kids.
I have been in Church Services and this so...Read Full Post »

THE LOVE OF GOD
(from I Corinthians 13)
One reason we need the love of God is that it can enable us to cease from strife. A Greek word which is often translated “strife” in the New Testament is “eritheia”. It means, “strife, selfish ambition, contention, discord, quarreling, and party spirit”. Before the New Testament was written, it was used by Aristotle to describe “a self-seeking pur...Read Full Post »

” A LATE NIGHT FLIGHT “
My Brother and I were definitely All Boy……We were into something all the time. My parents kept a close tight reign on us and we got our rear ends tore up all the time. But we were some hard headed jokers.
Back in the 70’s my Dad was building his parents a house on our property in Bivins, Texas. PawPaw and Granny sold their house pretty soon, so they lived with us while Dad was fi...Read Full Post »

” ARE WE LOST “
We spent countless hours in the woods when I was a kid. We would go to McLeod , Texas and spend the night with some relatives there. The ladies would sit around the table and visit while the men all sat around and listened to Jerry Clower or Justin Wilson on record. We would laugh and plan out the big Squirrel hunt at daybreak. We all had squirrel dogs.
The next morning after a big breakfast, we would head out t...Read Full Post »

“A ROCKIN’ HOG”
Now when I was a teenager, My Brother, A couple of our friends, and I were always pulling some kind of practical joke or something. It didn’t matter who, we just pulled our pranks on anyone that gave us opportunity. I remember one night my Parents were watching TV and my Brother and I and two friends that were always at our house (or we were at theirs) was just sitting around watching a little TV as well and visiting. It was about 7:30pm...Read Full Post »
