The Times, They Be A Changing

Well, good morning y'all.  Hey, I'm from the south.  Arnold was truthful when he said: Our new home is set up, well, sorta set up.  Nearly a month into this new journey, and I'm finally able to sit down and do what I enjoy and is my personal therapy:  writing!  Truth is, I've been putting [...]

A Moving Journal-Day 8

  Day 1 of clean-up.  Another trip to our local storage unit for "stuff" we're not moving.  My son and my best friend came to help.  Loaded up my personal pick-up.  And another trip to the local thrift store.  As I was unloading our "actually good condition stuff" I noticed something.  And then I remembered [...]

A Moving Journal-Day 7

Got up this morning, went out to the garage. walked into the utility room, and to my horror (deep horror--Stephen King kind of horror) there was still some things to pack.  And then there was those boxes we are opened after taping up that had to be re-taped.  Oh, my tool chest wasn't properly prepared [...]

A Moving Journal-Day 6

Tomorrow the moving truck and crew arrive.  Well, no more trips to the curb.  This morning was pick-up day, and managed to get it all out there with 15 minutes to spare.  Timing is everything as they say.  Packed some more.  The Moving Supervisor, that's my wife, informed me that I needed to take some [...]

A Moving Journal-Day 5

  Welcome to Jeopardy, Randy.  "Thanks, Alex, I'll take Chaos and Stress for $1,000."  And the answer is:  "This picture is what it feels like." Yes, Randy:  "What is the feeling you have when the moving truck will be here in 2 days?"  Correct! Well, today started like usual.  Packing some more, taking some more [...]

A Moving Journal-Day 4

Well, good evening to all.  I'm sure this journal has you sitting on the edge of your chair.  Yeah, Right.  Even I'm not that delusional.  Well, today can you guess what we did?  If you guessed that we sat in easy chairs watching TV, you will not make it to Final Jeopardy.  More packing and [...]

A Moving Journal-Day 3

OK, Day 3 is in the books.  In 4 more days the moving company will arrive to pick up our belongings.  Then, on Monday afternoon we will meet them again at our new home.  I guess you could say this is entering "crunch time".  At least it feels this way.  Here was my day. At [...]

Moving Journal–Day 2

Well, Day 2 has come to an end in this adventure of preparing for the move.  Today I preached my final message at this church.  It was indeed a mixture of great joy and sadness.  Hugs were everywhere--tears offered and tears fought back.  Over these many years of preaching, the Spirit always challenges me and [...]

Blah, Blah, Whiners Have You Anything Else?

I am...started to say "surprised" but really I'm not because I saw it coming from a mile away.  I am...started to say "amazed" but that's not the word because there's nothing profound or significant in it.  I am...started to say "speechless" but there's so much I could say.  I am...started to say "fed-up" because I [...]

Do You Serve Before God’s Altar?

OK, since God calls us to be a Kingdom of Priests (1 Peter 2:9) I ask you:  Whose altar is it?  Priests in the Old Testament served before the Altar of God, meaning God owned that altar.  If the altar is yours then the Fire of Revival will never fall on it.  The fire from [...]

Ultracrepidarianism Is Killing The Local Church!

Do you know what an expert is?  Well, listen to the word and you hear 2 words.  The first word is "ex"--"ex" means former, or once was.  The second word is (sounds like) "spurt"--a "spurt" is water under pressure.  Therefore, an expert is a has been who is under pressure.  So know that I am [...]
