SHE / THEY WERE SO EXCITED!

The other morning we were about to leave when I spotted two elderly ladies sitting in another section of that classy diner.  I stopped to greet them, and as usual said, “Good morning ladies!  Have a blessed day!  ‘This is the day that the Lord hath made and I am going to rejoice and beContinue reading “SHE / THEY WERE SO EXCITED!”

TEN COMMANDMENTS

KNEE-MAIL

This snail pace because of development all around us has become a gigantic problem that worsens each day.  Since boredom set in, I began reading all of the license plates, bumper stickers and window decals; one of them caught my eye: “God answers knee mail.” I said to myself: “I wish I could have thoughtContinue reading “KNEE-MAIL”

MOSES’ DISCUSSION WITH GOD

You see, they tear into me, reminding this old boy of times when the Lord and I would get into a debate.  I always lost and should have known better.  Moses debated the Lord and lost.  I guess that to be my consolation.  Let’s visit their discussion in Exodus 3. A reminder!  Moses was leftContinue reading “MOSES’ DISCUSSION WITH GOD”

THE FAMILY INHERITANCE

What really is confusing is that some in the family says that it was believed to be entirely different and it must have been changed because of pressure; even mental deterioration may spring into the center of it.  What a mess! That which catches my attention in Luke 12, where “someone in the crowd” wasContinue reading “THE FAMILY INHERITANCE”

MAGNETIC FORCE

(For those of you unfamiliar with it, we replace grass with decorative rock most of the time in Arizona.)  As I continued my search, he suddenly appeared with a large magnet on a string, hoping that our problem would be solved quickly.  It was! He felt the necessity of explaining why he kept this magnetContinue reading “MAGNETIC FORCE”

VICTORIOUS NOT VICTIMS

Though the going was rough, they were resting on the promises that Jesus had made concerning the follow up to His crucifixion, and then the resurrection and ascension.  While there may not be the violence of that hour, but it remains a stigma if a Jew converts to Christianity.  We must realize that selected vocabularyContinue reading “VICTORIOUS NOT VICTIMS”

REDUCED CHRISTIANITY

I use those words with slight caution, for many folk with which I fellowship might think that I categorize them thusly!  I speak again of the levity, the laxity, which has filled the, so called Christianity, in this day and age. There was assignment of that title at Antioch as the disciples were teaching aboutContinue reading “REDUCED CHRISTIANITY”

CLOSER HOME

Copyright Ted Cowen I woke this morning, just before the dawn The body felt better than did the previous morn And so, preparing for the day that plainly lay ahead I spoke with Jesus; He is the Living Bread. After going through the normal preparations I checked the headlines for sensations Things had not changedContinue reading “CLOSER HOME”
