Ping! I had an idea

Ping! I had an idea Recently one of my sons sold his business. I asked him what he was going to do next and he told me he didn’t know. He added that he wished he could come up with a good idea. I’d been mulling around a thought for a business that I feel would have huge potential and a good payday. The idea continued to haunt me for a few days so finally I called him up and told him about it. I could feel his excitement over the phone and we decided we would take a...

What’s in a hug?

What’s in a hug? According to a poll I read, 82% of the people worldwide have lost hope. For some it’s a wayward daughter or son, maybe a bad medical test, the never-ending middle east conflict, finding a job, paying off debt, murder and violence, those guys in Washington D.C. – you name it.

Lately I’ve been looking for ways to find ways to lighten things up and the Gospels are a good place to find it. There are those who have made it their lifelong goal to stop Bible study; however, that effort will never succeed. I received an e-mail just last night from our managing director of the Jesus Alliance and she reported great success with the following meme: There...

All I know is . . .

All I know is . . . I was talking to a friend who is a bonafide modern day prophet this week and the subject of my eyes came up. He inquired how I was doing, and I told him that after the operations the left eye was now 20/20, but unfortunately the right could not be corrected due to the macular degeneration. The doctor then told me that nothing further could be done. I told my prophet friend that Jesus healed the blind by taking some dirt and spitting into it and rubbing it on his eyes. He...
