What ever you are going through is not hopeless. I was selling vacuum cleaners door to door, and I found a man in the yard fixing a sign in his yard. I came up to him, and he said, “Go on in. She is awake.” I went inside, and sure enough, his wife was in […]
What is poetry?
“If we saw reality, we would never be unhappy.” The Buddha This means that if we looked at life and saw what was actually there from a viewpoint of “I started with nothing and now I have lots” we would experience happiness. Yet we make-up unrealistic expectations of what should be and consequently we experience “not enough”, which has […]
People sure can ‘cherry pick’ their sins!
Let me first say this. I DID NOT say God hates homosexuals or those who have abortions. God loves everyone, and we were all made in His image.
Now, with that said…I wonder why do so many of my fellow Christians act as though homosexuality and abortion are the only sins that matter socially, politically and most of all that matter to God.

13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are MANY who go in by it. 14 Because[a] narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are FEW who find it.
The LORD says, “many go in by it” meaning the gate to destruction, and then He goes on to…

Most of us lead very busy lives. How many times have you thought, said or heard someone say…I don’t have time to read, or study my bible, pray or go to church? How many feel that God happily accepts being an after thought or ignored? How many feel it’s okay to say you believe, but […]
