Enjoy the Journey

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.  Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.  Proverbs 3: 5-6 (NLT) 

 

Here’s the picture. 

It was a day which could only be described as a Winnie the Pooh kind of day—blustery and uncertain.  Not the most desirable for a day of golf.  But there you are standing in the fairway, 180 yards away from a narrow elevated green sloping from back to front and guarded on the front left by water and on the back right by yawning revetted bunkers.  (more…)

God’s Friend

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…

 

And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,” and he was called God’s friend.   James 2: 23 (NIV)

John 1: 4, 5 (NIV)

The Foundation

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…

 

“I am the resurrection and the life.  He who believes in Me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in Me will never die.  Do you believe this?” 

John 11:25 (NIV)

 

It’s simple enough, though. (more…)
