Why?

Why?

A friend asked me "why?" Why should my life as a Christian make nonbelievers question their disbelief in God? I answered by quoting scripture (NOT from memory, mind you): "Friends, this world is not your home, so don’t make yourselves cozy in it. Don’t indulge your...

New Direction

New Direction

After taking a break from blogging to work on a major writing project, I've decided to step away from media analysis. There's just too many lies and slanted verbiage out there to discuss and it kind of bums me out. Parting Thoughts on the Media We should all realize...

Cages at the Border

Cages at the Border

Okay, here's a quick one because I'm under deadline for another project. Topic: US detention facilities for children at southern border with Mexico, and what they're called...based on who is President. Keep in mind, these are descriptions of the SAME facilities....

Burying More Than Nursing Home Residents

Burying More Than Nursing Home Residents

Another way the media slant the news is to spend more time on a less important story that supports the narrative, and bury a hot-button story that goes against it. I was speaking with a Democrat-voting Independent who assured me that Texas Governor Greg Abbott told...

NOT Just the Facts

NOT Just the Facts

The problem with the news today is the lack of facts. Take the following two paragraphs. Both of these are from general news articles, and not from opinion pieces. #1: We can verify that the claim of thousands of jobs lost is true, however, it can be misleading. A...

God Keeps Working, Even When We’re Done

God Keeps Working, Even When We’re Done

So, after a year of Zoom Small Group meetings, parties, a partial study (that failed, btw), and even a baby shower, we are planning the Spring-Summer Bible Study...in-person. Actual people, in an actual room, having organic conversation with no screens, no time-delay,...

Friends First

Friends First

It's sad to me that during the past few years, I've lost friends over politics. They've shunned me and said they couldn't be my friend because I felt a certain way. Don't be like them. Love your friends despite your differences. There is more to life than opinions. ...

Laughter as Medicine

Laughter as Medicine

I love to laugh! We all do, right? I think we need more laughter these days. I read today that we have to be careful how and when we laugh so we don't malign a group or person. Um, okay. I agree with that. There are ways that laughter can be used to hurt or destroy,...
