A Work in Progress


How many of us start out the new year with resolutions to make ourselves into someone who gets rid of harmful habits and resolves to be a better person than the previous year/years?

We’re going to be more productive and proactive, more loving and caring, less grouchy and picky; no more dope and smokes, no more overeating and drinking…on and on we plan. And then…flop!

Well, don’t you worry. We’ll get there one day because…

Let Your Love Grow


The antidote to all things wrong in this world is love. What our topsy-turvy planet needs now is this antidote. So come on world, in the words of the Bellamy Brothers (1976) let your love grow…and grow and grow…

Here is a comment made by one listener: “I was listening to this in the store, had to come home and look it up.. it felt like the Holy Spirit came over me while it was playing…I love this.”

Take It From the Birds


Have you sometimes wondered if birds ever wake up grumpy? It seems to me they are always singing from the time they wake up until they tuck into their wings again at day’s end.

What do they know that we don’t know?

Let’s take it from the birds and start our day with a song, no matter what.

Beautiful Sunday


Here is a great song from the seventies. I suggest we think of God singing it rather than Daniel Boone; especially when he sings, “When you say, say, say, say that you love me…”. God loves when we say that we love him, whether strolling a park, riding a car, getting a burger…whatever.

When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” John 21:15

Every day is a beautiful day with God in it. Happy Sunday.

Is There Any Hope?


In today’s world it seems things just go from bad to worse. The virus appears to ease off just to rear its head again in different parts of the globe. Violence and crime walk hand in hand; peaceful protests turn ugly; rulers bend the rules; fires, floods, ferocious winds and earthquakes ravish the earth. And we, the human race, ask, “Is there any hope?”

Scripture says, “For in hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.” Romans 8:24-25

The following song keeps me hopeful. Happy Sunday.

Church in the Wildwood


For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them. Matthew 18: 20

With most churches and places of worship closed due to Covid-19, there are ways and means of still attending some kind of spiritual service, whether online or by telephone. We are to remember that the church is the people not the building. Here is a Church in the Wildwood to lift our spirits even though we aren’t able to accept the invitation at this time. Happy Sunday.
