God’s Way Through the Words and the Weeds

DFW Airport wasn’t yet operational when we drove the ninety miles to Love Field in Dallas where I boarded a non-stop flight to Los Angeles’ LAX. From there I would take a series of buses that would eventually drop me off with Dale and Linda Ebel in San Clemente, California. Dale was the youth director Continue Reading…

Trust God? No Way?

I didn’t trust God, but I kept it under wraps and put up a good front, talked a good game and sang the stanza, "Trust and obey, for there’s no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey." In all honesty though, when I got away from the crowd, laid aside Continue Reading…

The Big Picture

At the height of the Vietnam war, the Wall Street Journal reported that once a week the President and four other politicians met to make all the decisions on how the war would be waged; that not one trained military mind sat in on these sessions, not even the chairman of the joint chiefs of Continue Reading…

Patrick

Dad loved to fly fish, and it wasn’t necessary for him to have a friend along. He thrived on the solitude, the quietness, the beauty, the "swish" of the line from his reel, seeing how close he could put his fly to "that dark shadow under the tree across the river–they’ll be hiding in the Continue Reading…

God’s Will or God’s Way?

If the telephone should ring right now it would scare him to death, so intent is he on his thoughts. God knows what I should do. He knows everything. His will is perfect. But how do I know what His will is? "God, what do you want me to do about this? Tell me." Silence. Continue Reading…

You’re alone. Tired. In a deep sleep. Suddenly, you’re sitting bolt upright in bed! Shhhhh … listen! What was that! That noise! Something woke me up… what was it? Did I lock the back door? Is there someone in the house? Where did I put that revolver? And your heart is thumping so loudly that Continue Reading…

Do You Have Enough Faith?

I believe this ice is finally ready for skating. I can hardly wait to feel that cold wind lash my face! Jim was skilled at observing the signs indicating whether the ice on his lake was thick enough to support his weight, and he was anxious to begin the skating season. He finished tying the Continue Reading…

The Reference Point

A tall man steps into your elevator and you think, he must be at least 6’5" tall. You must have a reference point from which to make such judgments, and its validity will dictate the accuracy of your estimate. Since both of you are standing on a level surface, you are 5’10" and his chin Continue Reading…

Masculinity, the Mantle of Manhood

A long, snaking abrasion appeared on the face of the Oklahoma earth as the single bottom plow gouged its way along under the weight of the old Indian and the unsteady pull of a Paint war-pony converted to plow horse. A single feather dangled at the quill from the gray braid of the warrior. One Continue Reading…

To Accept or Reject – That is the Question

"If only I had waited like my folks wanted me to. Maybe that right person would have come along. I probably missed God’s best…" "I could have married Don, you know. He’s a very successful CPA now. You should see the house they live in and the kind of clothes his wife wears!" "Surely there Continue Reading…
