“ Is It Time ? ”

“The fullness of time” is  a very thought provoking term. Scripture used it when describing the timing of the Lord’s coming to earth as a child….. “In the fullness of time, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law.” (Gal. 4:4) “The fullness of time”…. the right time for things to happen… … Continue reading “ Is It Time ? ”

The Wiener Wagon 

You’ll never guess what a friend of mine saw the other day while driving through Pennsylvania. Hmmmmmm, was it a famous movie star, a superstar athlete, an honest politician, a meteor ? No, no, no….. do you give up? Okay I’ll tell you…. he saw the “Wiener Wagon”. I’m serious the “Wiener Wagon” is still … Continue reading The Wiener Wagon

This includes great intellects and athletes, care givers…. people from every walk of life who live in an extraordinary way. I read yesterday about Green Beret Colonel Paris Davis who was awarded the Medal of Honor for … Continue reading The Lord Blesses The Little With The Great
