I am enough. So are you.

I am enough. I am not God. You are enough. You are not God. We are enough. As His people, we are enough. Let’s just live as if we are enough. We don’t have anything to prove because we are wonderfully made in His image. We don’t have to be anything more than His child.Continue reading “I am enough. So are you.”

That’s a LOT of money

No matter how you might slice it, this post will most likely come off as judgmental, at the very least to some folks. So before I begin this short wonderment (yep, I’m simply wondering “what if” in it) let me make myself clear. I don’t think there is anything wrong with the concept of freeContinue reading “That’s a LOT of money”

Leave the light on

In 1986 a fresh voice hit the airwaves of America. It was the voice of Tom Bodett who touted Motel 6, and always ended the commercial with “I’m Tom Bodett from Motel 6, and we’ll leave the light on for you.” His voice, a very pleasing, melodious voice captured America and he became an iconContinue reading “Leave the light on”

Financial status: What about it? Doesn’t matter. Influence: We are all equals in the eyes of God. Political beliefs: Who cares? Title: SeeContinue reading “Ain’t no room for it”

Our blood is no different than the blood of Jesus that ran on that day He shed it for us all. ThereContinue reading “Not all division is okay”

Awwwww, for the love of Jesus

Did the title grab your attention? It’s one of those sayings that one hears (or says) every once in a while, from one who is pretending not to swear, or is trying to swear politely. Typically, they are trying to avoid some of the harsher four plus letter words we might normally hear when oneContinue reading “Awwwww, for the love of Jesus”

The YouTube for Life

During the past few years, this crusty old salt has leaned into YouTube more and more for good purposes instead of for purely entertainment reasons. That’s because I discovered (yes, duh!!) that I can consistently find at least several videos about fixing things, and I’m in the fixing business. And, that means that I learnContinue reading “The YouTube for Life”

You might want to consider….

One of the means I use to reach people is through books that I have authored. As I have shared before, I am strictly a grass-roots, blue collar type of guy, one who has learned many valuable lessons just through doing life. I am a committed Christian, though that has not always been the case–byContinue reading “You might want to consider….”
