“Classic BLOGS… from the past”

Originally posted April 26, 2020 “What, Me Worry” My mother used to say “boy, your father was a “worrier; he really knew how to worry”.  I guess that’s where I inherited my tendency to worry. Ask Judy if I’m a worrier and she won’t say a word, but her “eyebrows” will go up…. Hmmm. Worry is … Continue reading “Classic BLOGS… from the past”

Delusion– Be On Guard

“Delusion is defined as a peculiar belief or impression that is firmly maintained despite being contradicted by what is generally accepted as reality or rational argument, typically a symptom of mental disorder.”  When I’m deluded, I don’t know right from wrong. “Because they refused to love the truth and so be saved….therefore God sends upon them a … Continue reading Delusion– Be On Guard

We’ve all heard the expressions…”earn your way”… pull yourself up by your bootstraps….. put something in the pot”…. bla,bla,bla. Unfortunately we can attribute this mindset to God himself.

Sure enough as I looked out over our lawn I saw intermittent piles of feathers and no chickens in sight. My daughter-in-law added that she saw … Continue reading The Sneaky Fox
