My favorite indoor sport these days is eating. I’ve had a lot of practice at it, and I’m good at it–really good. I not only chow down, but I also chow any direction I can. I can do such a good job cleaning a steak bone that the dog actually cries and turns his head […]

It shows that we are taking a moment to pause and consider that which we are thankful for…and it’s the perfect time to express that.

If I were God…

If I were God…

If I were God, I’d be thrilled. There’s a MAN singing in church. And, he’s raising his arm as he sings. Not only is he singing, he’s “into” his worship and praise. On top of that he most likely could care less if he’s singing a bit off key or off the beat. Nor does […]
