Purest Times in Life

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…

 

“…whatever is true, whatever noble…right…pure…lovely…admirable…think about such things.”

Philippians 4: 8 (NIV)

 

            The cool weather remains to usher in one of the great periods in all of sports. 

It’s an unlikely pairing for the 2010 World Series, between the Texas Rangers and the San Francisco Giants.  (more…)

So Obvious–Right?

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…

 

For you have defied the Lord of heaven and have had these cups from his Temple brought before you. You and your nobles and your wives and concubines have been drinking wine from them while praising gods of silver, gold, bronze, iron, wood, and stone–gods that neither see nor hear nor know anything at all. But you have not honored the God who gives you the breath of life and controls your destiny!                      Daniel 5: 23 (NLT)

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…

 

“The first question that the priest asked, the first question that the Levite asked was:

                        Martin Luther King, Jr., “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop”

April 3, 1968, Memphis, Tennessee

 

            I suppose where I first noticed Him was in the steadfastness of Lynda’s parents. 

Then I began to notice that He was always apparent in Lynda’s steady, daily and uncompromising example.  (more…)

Cold Fronts

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…

 

So Joseph said to his brothers, “…And now do not be distressed or angry with yourselves because you sold me here, for God sent me before you to preserve life.”

                                                            Genesis 45: 5 (ESV)

 

A bit of a cold front passed through last night.  It’s definitely a bit cooler outside this morning.  (more…)
