A different Father's Day

This year was the 51st Father's Day at the same house for our family. We have many great memories. A variety of games including volleyball have been part of the routine. A great meal including grilled hamburgers, steak, chicken and hot dogs have been standard.

The best gift ever!

Giving and receiving gifts can be very enjoyable. We could each make a list of good gifts that we have received. It might be five or it might be 50. Now let us imagine that we list them from the best on down to the end. This would be quite a chore and take days, weeks or months to complete.

Be nice now

This is a common expression. A group of friends jokingly start cutting on each other. Someone will pop up with that expression, "Be nice now." This is usually a friendly comment. Perhaps we could all do better.

Can God do anything? Can God make a rock so big that He cannot lift it? Most of us have been asked these kinds of questions over the years. Skeptics, agnostics, and atheists thrive on the these kinds of questions.

Keeping focused

Science, engineering and technology have come a long way during the last hundred years. The first television that I ever saw was a little black and white 12 inch set. The picture was so blurred that it was hard to see the detail. That was during my early college years.

What am I doing?

Floyd Ebby, a friend of mine was a speaker at one of our Gideon Conventions many years ago. He told a story which is sort of an analogy that says it all.

Responding to chaos

The president, governors, senators and house members all talk about debt and balancing the budgets. Food, clothing and housing for the poor and homeless are ever with us.

The week after Easter

The week before Easter we sing one kind of hymn in church. Old hymns like, "On a hill far away, stood an old rugged cross." or "When I survey the wondrous cross," or "Jesus paid it all" that are appropriate.
