I Noticed His Work
January 16, 2018

Ever since I was a young boy, I always observed others in their occupations. Even though I was only about 5 years old when I started doing that, those observations could be quite revealing—usually to the good, and probably in a few cases to the bad..... I would notice things […] [READ MORE]

I Sure Enjoyed That Special Time With You
January 8, 2018

I want to tell you about something amazing that happened to me in the summer of 2016. And yet, for those of us who call ourselves Christians..... the story I’ll tell you about should probably be routine—NOT amazing. But let me back-up two more years, to build up to my […] [READ MORE]

A Simple Country Christmas
December 18, 2017

Families tend to develop traditions as to how they spend Christmas and surprisingly those ‘patterns’ can remain for quite a number of years.   Growing up in a large family, we had traditions at Christmas that many of us still talk about today.

The Hardest Part Of Faith Is.....
November 27, 2017

We sure have become an “instant society“. There has been a technology ‘explosion’ going on for awhile now, and some say we will be amazed where it leads! But have you noticed as I have, as things like instant messaging and other technologies that allow people to accomplish more faster […] [READ MORE]

In Everything.....
November 20, 2017

Once again we made it to Thanksgiving week! I know many would say that Thanksgiving is their favorite holiday of the whole year..... family, friends, food, football!

Dormant ..... Or Dead?
November 13, 2017

It seems like many people say fall is their favorite season of the year! I am not part of that group. I am all about SPRING! (In case anyone was wondering, as of today, it is only 126 days until spring!) Part of the reason I don’t like fall is […] [READ MORE]

Are You Serious!
November 6, 2017

Are you joking! Are you serious! Or, Are you joking? Are you serious? If we are talking with a close friend or someone we’ve known for a long time, we can almost always tell when someone is serious. But sometimes.....well..... there have been a few times over the years, when […] [READ MORE]

Where’s The Keeper?
October 30, 2017

Have you ever paid much attention to how quickly some words, phrases or terminology come and go from everyday use? It wasn’t that long ago when if you had used the word “Facebook” to someone, you would have received a puzzled look, or they may have agreed that someone always […] [READ MORE]

The Orchard
October 23, 2017

I have a small orchard on my little farm. There are several different varieties of apples, cherries, peaches, pears and grapes. It has taken almost 25 years to get them all established to the point where they are right now, yet there is never any promise of a crop of […] [READ MORE]

Medals.....Or Playing The Game
October 16, 2017

Anyone who knows me well could easily tell you that my all time favorite TV show is “The Andy Griffith Show”! Today I want to use a story from that show and contrast it with some events I’ve witnessed in the last several days of my own life.The episode from […] [READ MORE]

A Wheelchair, Refi, and Jim!

Imitate WHO?
October 2, 2017

Did you know that there is a lot of detail work that goes into developing an imitation or impersonation of someone? It's so much more than just learning how to "sound" like another person-in fact, sometimes the voice is the easy part. You have to study closely--not just the voice […] [READ MORE]

I Found It

Immy, Not Jimmy
September 18, 2017

The first several months of 1968 were a very memorable time for me, and again, a change which God used to help mold me into who I am today.The year started with me developing a cough-not a cold-but a deep cough, which became chronic and more severe. I had been […] [READ MORE]

Are You Being Yourself?
September 11, 2017

Did you ever have a job for a short time as an adult, and when you look back, you can clearly see that perhaps the only purpose of that job was to correct a hidden character flaw? Maybe you never did.....But I sure did, and it was a doozy!When I […] [READ MORE]

OPEN 9-1
September 4, 2017

My childhood memories of Labor Day meant that my father's general store would be open for only 4 hours, 9-1. And that also usually meant that my father had some kind of project planned for the afternoon--because when you work 70 hours every week, with no vacations, there is just […] [READ MORE]

Life's Highway

As we continue to make our way through life, have you ever wondered how once in a great while, God sends a friend into your life without you even realizing it? Maybe that sounds strange, but that's what I'm writing about today! Starting in the late 1980's through the late 990's, […] [READ MORE]

You've Changed
August 21, 2017

This is the time of year that brings back a memory of my favorite high school teacher, Mr Rex Estus. Mr Estus taught English-and so much more. He taught and prepared students for life outside of school, whether you were going on to college or not.My first contact with himas […] [READ MORE]

He's Mean!
August 14, 2017

Sometimes, lessons we learn in our childhood, even if they may seem small at the time, can go on to have a major impact in our lives as adults. That was certainly true in my life, and like so many of my childhood lessons, I learned this very important one […] [READ MORE]

What Will Our Line Be?
August 7, 2017

There was a TV game show in the early days of television called "What's My Line?" It was a very popular and long-running panel show, which had a celebrity panel asking questions of a member from the public, where the panel would try to guess their occupation. The panel could […] [READ MORE]

What Do YOU Say?
July 31, 2017

Did you ever take time to really listen to what people say and "how" they say it? It does take time-something most people don't ever seem to have enough of, but it can be very interesting.I first started learning to listen to what people say while working in my fathers […] [READ MORE]

Angels And Stethoscopes

From 2003 until she passed away in 2014, my wife Laura spent hundreds of days in various hospitals from here in northern Indiana to Indianapolis.
