- So . . . I'm "feeding myself" in the morning from God's Word and thought I'd post what I'm chewin' on and make my "food" available for others who might want to nibble a bit. Hope it's of some benefit to you . . .

The Depths of the Sea
I’m no exploration buff. Can’t say I’m particularly well read (or even read, at all) when it comes to boldly going where no man has gone before. Instead, what I think I know, I know from the media. My sense … Continue reading

Ready to Forgive
Back online . . . and hopefully, for awhile at least, back in routine. I’ve enjoyed the break. Enjoyed spending focused time with the family of God. Enjoyed a quick road trip south to central Oregon to connect with my … Continue reading
