The Power Within

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…

 

“But very early on Sunday morning the women went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared.  They found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance.  So they went in, but they didn’t find the body of the Lord Jesus.”

                                                                Luke 24: 1-3 (NLT)

 

It was about ten years ago now, that I traveled to Scotland for a week of golf on some of the historic courses of the game.  What made the trip especially memorable was that I took it with my precious son, Nathan, as the two of us joined seven other father-son pairings.  Throughout the week we traveled the Scottish countryside and played courses across Scotland, including where golf began at the famous Old course in St. Andrews, Scotland.

While in St. Andrews, (more…)

Voices

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…

Luke 23: 22-23 

 

            The air outside this morning is breezy and much cooler than the heat which I felt yesterday.  My Bride, Lynda, was a bit frustrated with me.  She seldom gets angry with me, although yesterday would have been an appropriate opportunity to do so.  (more…)

            “This is what the Lord says:  ‘Stop at the crossroads and look around.  Ask for the old, Godly way, and walk in it.  Travel its path, and you will find rest for your souls.’” 

Jeremiah 6:16 (NLT)

 

            The words of a dear friend, from his book The Road to Somewhere, published in 2003, were floating through my thoughts as I sat here waiting for another day to stretch out before me.  In his book, New York Times best-selling author, James Dodson, paints the experiences from a once-in-a-lifetime odyssey (more…)

Moments

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…

 

“If I had only known it was the last walk in the rain, I’d keep you out for hours in the storm,

I would hold your hand like a life-line to my heart; underneath the thunder we’d be warm.

If I had only known it would be our last walk in the rain.” 

 (Reba McIntyre, If I Had Only Known)

 

            I had seen that faraway pensive look in her eyes before.  It’s been a number of years and I have seen it at times since.  I always hope it’s not something that’s troubling her; and I always want to take it from her if it is.  Sometimes she would tell me what she was thinking, sometimes not.  (more…)
