Let them know. I worked in a pie factory from 1972 to 1986. I started washing pots and pans in the afternoon after high school and worked my way up to Vice President of Marketing, learning lots of things about business. I worked all areas of production: purchasing, receiving, pre-mix, mixing, baking, line operations, packaging, … Continue reading Pie Factory
Give them a resolution. I wonder sometimes how I can have so many redundant thoughts. How many times do I have to fall the same way I have fallen before? How many times does God have to tell me if I go His way, it goes a lot easier? I seem to have to often … Continue reading Happy New Year

We have been before and have always enjoyed the shows. They are clean, funny, and the cast is very talented. But this time something … Continue reading Funny Bone
Pray for them. Carey and I finished reading a compilation of sermons by John G. Lake Monday. Lake (1870-1935) is one of the most renown “faith healers” in history. There are even reports that healings from his ministry were responsible for closing a hospital in his home base of Spokane, Washington. Last Thursday a very … Continue reading Healing?
Give them a word. I stopped cutting the front yard last week long enough to talk to a realtor coming out of the house next door. He had just shown the house again. It has been for sale for a few weeks. I introduced myself and told him a couple of people looking at the … Continue reading Sweet
