God Never Does THAT! How Dare You Say Such a Thing!

Jeremiah 5:12  They have belied the LORD, and said, It is not he; neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see sword nor famine: This is a common refrain these days, that God does not bring trouble on the world, let alone His own people.  One of my …

Your Focus Determines Your Security

Sometimes, I like listening to the radio to get a bead on what society is thinking, feeling, and longing for.  Occasionally, listening to Christian radio ends up affording the same opportunity for discovery.  This morning, I was listening to Praise106.5FM again, streaming it over my ‘net connection, when Dan Bremnes’ …

Moral Battle Lines in the Court of Public Opinion

I was listening to Praise106.5 the other day at work, when Newsboys “Guilty” came on.  Work was quite slow so I took time to really listen to the lyrics.  Let’s take a quick look at them: Guilty When did it become breaking a rule, To say Your name out loud …

“Stopping Lessons”

See there’s this horse, and she doesn’t like to stop.  My daughter’s been training her from “track broke” for over a year now when  training began in February of 2015.  She can walk, trot, canter (needs help with transitioning up to Canter however, and with balancing), go over trot poles, …

Of Expiry Dates and Saving Money!

As already written a few weeks ago now, there is quite a bit of frivolous, high-living-driven wastage going on in Canada because of the materialistic mindset that everything must look perfect or its not worthy of being consumed.  Grocery store chains such as Loblaw’s family of stores are to be …

“Waste not, want not!”

But many homeless people will tell you that they eat better from the dumpster bins of restaurants and grocery stores than they would have had they been working and earning an income!  Why?  Because modern “civilized” society is not only one of hedonism and excess, but also one of materialism …
