  • I don’t know about you, but I hate being lied to.

    A few weeks ago we drove to Tampa, which is about 70 miles from where we live. That same day, we needed to go to Port Charlotte, which is south of Tampa.

    How far south, you ask?

    Well, according to the “distance between two cities” online calculator I used, Port Charlotte is 70 miles south of Tampa.

    Except the calculator lied.

    We drove and drove and drove and about 110 miles later got to Port Charlotte.

    I hate being lied to.

  • As America celebrates another birthday, some things are very evident.  America has enjoyed the many blessings of God.  We have become the world’s greatest economic, political and cultural power evidenced by an unparalleled stand of living.

     But will America continue to enjoy these blessings?  Proverbs 14:34 says, “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”  Does this verse forecast what lies ahead for America?

    Thought for the week: Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe, and have faith that everything will work out for the best.
