Did you hear the tree fall?

As a Christian I have an obligation to share my faith, to WITNESS to the world that Jesus was born of a virgin, was crucified, died and arose from the dead on the third day.  His sacrifice was made to save you and me and to permit our sins to be forgiven.

He sits at the right hand of the father, but he will return to judge both the living and the dead…….. Continue reading

Tombstones

What mark will you leave upon the world?  An older gentleman once told me your life is but a dash.  He went on to say the dash between dates on your tombstone represents your whole life, not much of a showing is it he said? Continue reading

Everyday Miracles

My favorite place to vacation is Destin, Florida and specifically at the Coral Reef Inn.  We rent a condo just feet from the ocean and spend a week enjoying the Emerald Coast of the United States.  The kids spend their days on the beach, and snorkeling just to name a few of the fun things to do.  My wife relaxes, letting her hair down sipping a fruity drink all the while trying to protect the family from frying in the summer sun.

Bacon

I lead a Bible study group every Friday at a local nursing home, its my favorite hour of the week.  Sixty short minutes to share with a group of older folks I’ve come to love.  Each week I learn a little more about them, for instance last week a conversation about tomatoes led to a discussion about BLT’s.

If bacon makes everything better, a bacon, lettuce  and tomato sandwich must be the perfect food.  I know they’re my favorite and have been since childhood.  My Mom use to make the best, with tomatoes and lettuce fresh from our garden and the bacon once rolled in the mud just beyond the garden fence.

Mom is part of my Bible study group and we were deep in discussion about tomatoes when another resident of the home mentioned they only get bacon a few times per week, and even then only one piece per person.

One piece……

I can’t get it out of my mind.  I can not imagine a life in which bacon is such a treat that I would only see 3 pieces a week.  Where did her life go off the tracks that landed her in such a situation.  And why can’t I save her……
