He (she) is totally at the mercy of those who are caring for him. If his caretakers are loving, kind, compassionate, conscientious, tender, and gentle Continue Reading…

In The Eastern Sky

Camping was an economical holiday—it didn’t cost very much—so of necessity our vacations were spent on the rivers around Poteau—Kiamichi, Blackfork, Little Fourche Maline, Big Fourche Maline, Little River, and Cucumber Creek.

Long Ago and Far Away

“Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ– this Jesus whom you crucified.” Now when they heard this, they were pierced to the heart and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brethren, what shall we do?” Acts 2:36-37 I have seen Continue Reading…

Where is Your Olivet?

Now during the day He was teaching in the temple, but at evening He would go out and spend the night on the mount that is called Olivet. Luke 21:37 Jesus knew. He, like His Father, was omniscient.
