True North

  In routine life on Planet Earth, there’s one rather ordinary looking piece of equipment that is used by thousands of people every day. It’s called a compass. Hikers, hunters, military personnel, navigators on ships and planes, and even  12-year-old boy scouts and girl scouts out on field trips use a compass as a normalContinue reading “True North”

What Happened to ‘The End’?

Over the past decade, the publishing world has experienced an interesting, but, in my opinion, sad phenomenon. Almost all fiction authors and/or publishing houses have started leaving out the words “The End” on the last page of novels. It’s now become passe, and I guess in some minds, even unsophisticated to write those two iconicContinue reading “What Happened to ‘The End’?”

  In this crooked and perverse generation, we MUST stand TALL for the Lord!   “Stand up, stand up for Jesus. The strife will not be long. This day the noise of battle; The next the victor’s song.

Focus on Coffee – Day 7

Well, here we are at the close of another coffee series. I do love posting about coffee. (I said that a few times already, didn’t I?) Today I’ve focused on a cup of coffee and an open Bible because, frankly, that’s my M.O. I’ve spent many long hours with a cup of coffee and myContinue reading “Focus on Coffee – Day 7”

Focus On Coffee — Day 1

Well, as all my regular visitors know, I do love coffee. But I’ve noticed that during this past couple months — with life a little topsy-turvey — I’ve needed a lot more coffee than usual.
