Yesterday I preached on “THY WILL BE DONE…”   

One of the major points was that when we pray that prayer, we’re making a commitment to KNOW the will of God… (and it’s not that hard to figure it out, since God’s will is written down in the Bible).

So check out this morning’s Verse of the Day from Biblegateway.com :

The teaching of your word gives light, so even the simple can understand. (Psalm 119:130)

I love it when God makes connections like that.


Love this translation of today’s Bible verse fromB bible Gateway:

“I will hurry, without delay, to obey your commands.”  Psalm 119:60 (NLT)

Today’s my anniversary.   Probably as a reference to

Today’s my anniversary.   Probably as a reference to my increasing age, my son made the observation that I’ve now been married for half my life.  

Let me just say this…It’s been the BEST half of my life.

Yesterday I finished up teaching a doctrine course

Yesterday I finished up teaching a doctrine course in Mexico for the Bible Institute that;s sponsored by Edificando Generaciones ,one of Concordia’s  mission partners.

To me it’s amazing to hear Melissa simultaneously translating my teaching; and to see the students looking at me but listening to her, ans especially, to see the hunger and passion for the Word of God in these adult learners of all ages. One of the neatest things for me is taking a complex concept, trying to relate it in simple terms, and then seeing the “Ah! Ha!” in the students eyes.  


That experience:  PRICELESS.

Standing in line for 2 hours waiting to cross back into the US — not so much.

But, heh. There’s a bright side there, too.    Great chance to finish up reading a book.


just sharing

one of the daily Bible verses that comes straight to my email.   Hope it blesses you.


Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.   (Ephesians 3:17-19)

just saying…

We had some friends over for dinner and a movie this weekend.   Dessert was brownies and ice cream.   Well…our friends made a “brownie sandwich”  — brownie on the bottom, 2 flavors of ice cream in the middle, and another chewy brownie on top.

Mmmmmmmmm.   Wonder why I never thought of that?

Sure was a good idea.   Just saying…

The verse of the day from Biblegateway.com:

Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.  Romans 12:10


On a weekend where most people set aside extra time for family, it’s a good time to work at this.  I’m going to.   How about you?
