How about a little fun with tongue twisters? Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear. Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair. Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t fuzzy, was he? If a dog chews shoes, whose shoes does he choose? I thought I thought of thinking of thanking you. How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck… Continue reading The Solution to the Struggle
The Most Important Thing
Do you get distracted easily? Whew! I thought it was just me. I’m glad I’m not the only one. The most distractions come when I try focusing on something especially important to me—time in prayer and Bible study. Thoughts that definitely could wait a while inevitably come and remind me to do something today. So,… Continue reading The Most Important Thing
Removing the Bandages
When I was a child, my sister and I would stay up with my father watching the classic movies. Not just any black and white vintage movies. The scary movies from the 1930s-1950s. To me, no one is a better Dracula than Bela Lugosi. Only Boris Karloff perfectly portrays the Mummy and Frankenstein. And the… Continue reading Removing the Bandages
Lessons Through the Flood
I love the rain. It’s so cozy when you can stay indoors and watch the raindrops and listen to them land on the roof and windows. So peaceful.

Who Do You Trust?
When it comes to entertainment, the world has an incorrect view of cherubim. They are not the cute, chubby baby Cupids. They are actually mighty warriors and guardians. Gatekeepers have an important role as guardians of the gate. To get to the other side, you have to go through the gatekeeper. Who would you consider… Continue reading Who Do You Trust?
Who Are You When No One is Looking?
It is believed that the work, “The Invisible Man” is an exploration of examining a man’s character. It asks the personal question, Would I be the same person if I knew I could get away with anything? Being invisible allowed the main character to act out without any consequences to himself. Dwight L. Moody touched… Continue reading Who Are You When No One is Looking?
