  • The law fulfilled for us

    My friend Mike loves kitschy stuff and he loves God. So, anything that combines kitsch and God is a slice of heaven to him.

    Recently, someone gave him a Moses and the Ten Commandments clock. Moses, holding a stone tablet in each arm, is looking off into the distance, all holy-like, and there’s lightning behind him.

    Every hour, but not quite on the hour, the clock will play some light piano music and a voice — could be God, could be Moses — announces a commandment. “Thou shalt not kill” or “Honor your father and mother.”

  • Forgiveness

    Forgiveness is a beautiful thing, but not everyone expresses it or demonstrates it. But God does! In Christ there is complete forgiveness available. When God forgives, He forgets. “And their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more” (Hebrews 10:17). What grace! What love!

    Some things are a fact and should never be doubted. Forgiveness is a fact. Paul says in Ephesians 1:7, “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses ….”

  • Perfect hard-boiled eggs

    Eggs are an easy, low-cost source of protein for your family meals. In making hard-boiled eggs, for easier peeling, use eggs that are seven to 10 days old. Pack hard-boiled eggs for lunch. Slice or cut into wedges for tossed salad. Dice for egg salad.

    Directions: Place eggs in saucepan large enough to hold them in single layer. Add cold water to cover eggs by 1 inch. Cook on high heat just to boiling. Remove from burner and cover pan.

  • The things we do for our children

    When my daughter Natalie was young, she wanted to get her ears pierced. And even though she wanted her ears pierced, she was afraid of needles. Her solution, one that was clever and smart, was for me to get my ears pierced to show her it did not hurt.

  • Happy Father's Day

    Well it’s almost time to celebrate dad again with ties and cards that are funny or made from the hands of the littlest of these to show just how special Daddy really is.

    My Daddy, named John Samuel, was always called “Jack.” He used to say, “all great men named John are called Jack,” and he was one of the great ones.
