Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…


Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.  Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.  And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.

Romans 5:1-5 (NIV)


            The rest of the house was still asleep, as it was still quite dark outside when I woke early this morning to prepare breakfast and put it in the warmer for Lynda and our precious younger Granddaughter, Ellie Kate.  (more…)

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…


“Your life is an occasion—rise to it!”  Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium (Walden Media)


The sun outside my window is rising on yet another Monday.  Is the sun rising where you are?  And what do you have in store for the day?  Or should I ask, what does the day have in store for you?

Trust God Or…

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…


“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you eat or drink…or what you will wear…look at the birds of the air…your heavenly Father feeds them…So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?  Or ‘What shall we drink? Or ‘What shall we wear?…but seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”           

Matthew 6: 25-33 (NIV)


It’s a beautiful day outside this morning, so I’m not at all sure why he, of all people, came to mind.  The remembrance dates me, and will date a number of you, too.  (more…)

The Calm in the Storm

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…


“By now it was dark…a strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough…they saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on water…they were willing to take Him into the boat, and immediately the boat reached the shore where they were heading.”                               

John 6:17-21 (NIV)


As I sit here this morning, the sun is beginning to come up. 

The recent spray of rainstorms has passed.  Another reminder of a season of icy winds and wicked weather touching all of us in one form or another.    

But at least for now—a moment of calm. (more…)
