“CAN’T SLEEP?”

(“Don’t count sheep; talk to the Shepherd!”) Used with Permission by, Linda DeSilva Sleeplessness is a problem for many people.  On the very rare occasions when I can’t sleep, I pray for insomniacs known to me. The hands (or digits) on the clock move almost imperceptibly; pain continues for sleepless sufferers; the long night seemsContinue reading ““CAN’T SLEEP?””

WEEDS, WEEDS, WEEDS

When we engaged a new-comer to play golf, we waited, with anticipation, for his ball to get stuck on a milk weed.  We knew that weed has developed little to no tolerance for a golf club, in spite of what some non Bermudians are prone to think.  I recall how my Father would have usContinue reading “WEEDS, WEEDS, WEEDS”

NEVER ALONE!

Used with Permission by, Linda DeSilva The music on last Sunday’s BBN radio presentation of ‘SONGS IN THE NIGHT’ was different from the norm.  Usually there is a male soloist and a ladies’ ensemble.  This time, the Moody Church Choir sang a selection in which one group chanted in unison “YOU ARE NOT ALONE!” repeatedlywhileContinue reading “NEVER ALONE!”

A PEARL OF GREAT PRICE

I will not get into the discussion, but before long we agreed to attend the banquet together.  As we enjoyed each other’s company, we even managed a couple of dates prior to the banquet. By the time Christmas arrived, I was invited to spend it with her family.  It was a beautiful time.  Included wasContinue reading “A PEARL OF GREAT PRICE”

LEARNING TO SING AND PRAY

I recall how when I first read this, I found it a little confusing… How in the world could a couple of men who had just been beaten, on their bare backs “with many blows” find it an ideal moment, “midnight”, to pray and sing? (v25) As the story unfolded I noticed that I hadContinue reading “LEARNING TO SING AND PRAY”

THE BLAME GAME

Used with Permission by, Linda DeSilva Excuses! From infancy, we use them to ‘pass the buck’.  “The dog ate my homework.” (BC – before computers!)   “Sorry – project’s not complete – computer problems!” “The alarm clock didn’t go off.”  “It wasn’t my idea! He made me do it!”   I guess we have all played ‘TheContinue reading “THE BLAME GAME”

A LOWLY NAZARENE

In fact, they may lose their “cool” in an effort to destroy any allegiance that I might possess in acknowledging Christ as my Lord and Savior.  They wonder why I might show allegiance to a “made up story” about an illegitimate child who is purportedly God in flesh.  Of course they address it as aContinue reading “A LOWLY NAZARENE”

THE HIGHEST POINT IN HEBREWS

Playing soccer was enjoyable, but I have to admit that I was not the first guy picked on the team.  With that much out of the way we will move on. The Olympics are not my priority to view.  While I admire the accomplishments of the athletes, and wonder in my mind how in theContinue reading “THE HIGHEST POINT IN HEBREWS”

SEPARATING EARTHLY AND HEAVENLY

We are all faced with the realization, as we wake each morning, I have all of these things to get accomplished.  They could be the simplest of challenges, and they could be monumental in our thinking.  The tug of war begins.  What is first on my agenda and what can wait? As a believer, IContinue reading “SEPARATING EARTHLY AND HEAVENLY”

THE FRINGE OF HIS CLOAK

After I visited the Holy Land, I was more than convinced how some use the items for profit, for support of their fantasies, for notoriety, the list is endless.  I fully expect them to find sufficient pieces of wood from the cross to build another Noah’s ark. The thought that has lingered in my mindContinue reading “THE FRINGE OF HIS CLOAK”
