  • Finding your joy

    Ever since I was a kid, I have loved the movies.  I look forward to the latest blockbusters with great anticipation.  Now I admit, as a guy, I enjoy the big “blow-em up” kind of movies.  I look forward to things like Star Wars or Jurassic Park or even a great war movie.  That said, I also enjoy romantic comedies, though sadly the recent spate of these are generally morally bankrupt.

  • The Bible can be uncomfortable

    Have you ever watched America’s Funniest Home Videos?  We used to watch it a lot, just because it is funny, lighthearted, and our grandchildren would laugh their heads off.

  • God’s refreshment

    Work hard on a hot day and then grab a glass of ice cold sweet tea.  Feel the cold glass in your hand and taste the sweetness on your tongue, . Ahh!. Just a short break in a hard and busy day, but it refreshes and renews your strength.

    Mt. Eden Christian Church Homecoming to celebrate 173 years

  • Clearing out the clutter

    I notice a lot of people are moving this summer.  Homes for sale here and there and it seems that they are selling pretty quickly.  I guess that’s good news.

    I have to admit, I’m not big on moving anymore.  When my wife and I got married, I think we moved seven times in eight years.  And honestly, those moves were not too bad.  Then we settled down in one house and managed to stay there for about 16 years.  Moving from there was a different story.

  • Cool water on a hot day

    Maybe you didn’t notice, but it has been hot. A couple of weeks ago our church helped out with ticket sales and parking at the Spencer County Fair, and we got to experience that heat first-hand. It was in the 90s every day, with heat indexes over 100 sometimes.
