Love God

We must never forget that we were created to worship and love God. We are the creation – He is the creator. We are to serve Him. All the blessings that His word tells us about are there for us if we will follow Him. The world has the idea that man can do just about whatever he wants and God will still save him.

Let us tend our own gardens first

Well, my driver's license is about to expire. That means that I will soon be five years older than I used to be. I thought about simply renewing it online, but I want a new picture. No, I'm not that vain. But since I last got a license I have had laser eye surgery. I no longer wear glasses, and my old picture has me in glasses. I don't want to have to explain that to an officer.

Thoughts of uncertainty

I was driving to the office the other day when out of the corner of my eye I saw a squirrel come out of the grass and dart right in front of my car. There was no time to brake and sad to say, the only nuts that that squirrel is eating is in squirrel heaven if there is such a place.
