It’s July 5th and this morning I stepped out on our balcony and put out our flag one more time. We don’t have a bracket to insert the pole into, so I used spring clips to attach it to the railing. It doesn’t really matter how it is displayed, the flag is a symbol of our nation and of our devotion to America. I love my nation and this Independence Day season I have been feeling particularly proud to be an American...
Everyone's Blog in General Blog
Years ago, when we were still homeschooling our sons, my youngest son, David, created a web site full of very nice graphics that can be used as walpaper, icons or whatever. He even used some of them to make real tiles that he sent to his grandmothers as gifts. That site has been sitting inactivated and static for years but just the other day David reactivated it.

Life is like a river bottom. Small pebbles fill the gaps between large boulders and stones. It is there in the cracks and holes between the pebbles, that living things thrive. Sure, life can be found under the large stones too, but it’s the small pebbles...
It was an intensely interesting conversation. Two young people sat at the table with Ruth and me, our pastor and a couple of other people, discussing the books they were writing. Both were involved in Christian ministry. It was fun to join into the conversation with them since I had already published a book (albeit a nonfiction book rather than their fiction stor
On the first Sunday of October 2011 Ruth and I held the last service of Living Water Fellowship Church. I preached to an empty room (except for Ruth) that morning. During the four preceding years we had been attempting to plant Living Water Fellowship Church in Butte, Montana and, fully expecting that God was going to gather to us chosen people who would help make it work, I had written a blog dealing with the subject of Spiritual Warfare as a primer for people who were coming on board. There is a lot of good insight contained in that blog and I intend to leave it up -- but I need to bri
Last summer, after the political conventions were over, the Lord showed me that the two choices being offered to the American people were, on one hand, a judgement on our nation or, on the other, an opportunity to obtain mercy.
