Absent from His Presence

Absent from His Presence Have you noticed that people we associate with who could be from work, school, home, friends, a neighbor, or a family member we can take for granted and not realize the influence or blessing they have been until they are absent. All of a sudden your routine goes haywire. How amContinue reading “Absent from His Presence”

It’s OK to Ask for Help!

We can become vulnerable to injuries when it comes to sports, work, construction, play, recreation like riding a bike or even climbing a mountain. I find that in our world of independence and individualism we tend take pride in trying to figure things out ourselves, or we try to get healed on our own.For someContinue reading “It’s OK to Ask for Help!”

An Inside Job!

Change Comes When We Decide we are Powerless The great experience about living in New England or the Northeast is the changing of the seasons. Just when we get tired of winter or summer, spring and fall seem to bring relief from both extremes of the heat and freezing temperatures. If we want change inContinue reading “An Inside Job!”

My Help Comes From The Lord

I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

Watch your Life and your Doctrine Closely!

I was away for a few days about a week ago down Cape Cod by Nauset Light/Coast Guard Beach. What struck me was the erosion of the beach and sand due to the ocean storms. I thought erosion of beaches only happened in California! This stairwell deck was 65 stairs. I know because I walkedContinue reading “Watch your Life and your Doctrine Closely!”

When God Frustrates The Plans

You know it’s a bad day when the light at the end of the tunnel are the lights of a locomotive train! Too often we can be quick to blame others orContinue reading “When God Frustrates The Plans”

Exceedingly Abundantly

Scenes like this will lower anybody’s blood pressure. This picture was taken on Martha’s Vineyard a few years ago. Im amazed how the Lord desires to bless us beyond what we could ever think or imagine, especially in the small things in life. Life is about taking risks, but you will never know what yourContinue reading “Exceedingly Abundantly”

G.P.S.

GPSThe GPS is one of the best inventions of modern man. Just ask any woman and she will agree with you because most guys “know where they are going” when it comes to directions! I literally got lost last night driving with my wife because I thought I knew the road. We ended up onContinue reading “G.P.S.”

Think Outside the Box

Thinking outside the box is usually unacceptable in our ‘cookie cutter society’! We build up walls and have become less patient and intolerant because they don’t agree with me or ‘with us’. Let’s take a break from religion and politics aside as we are constantly bombarded from the media and the internet. Change or toContinue reading “Think Outside the Box”
