I have a new appreciation for the Psalms after discovering that they are the only real account of man's opinion, or response to God.  The Psalms are prayers, mostly, that were offered to God.  In the Psalms we get a close up look at how the Jewish people viewed God and how they believed He worked in their lives and their opinion of how He worked in their nation.  No longer do I feel bad for getting angry at [...]]]>

I was reading in Mark 4 the other day and told the story of Jesus going to Simon the Leper's house.

How to Deal with the Boston Bombings http://www.butlercountytimesgazette.com/article/20130416/BLOGS/304169921/-1/blogs01?rssfeed=true Tue, 16 Apr 2013 17:31:11 +0000 http://www.butlercountytimesgazette.com/article/20130416/BLOGS/304169921/-1/blogs01 How do you deal with tragedy?

In the wake of the Boston Bombings many people are struggling to make sense of what happened.  As of the last news conference I heard, there are three dead and more than 100 wounded from the two bombs that exploded on the sidewalks of Boston near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.  And just about everyone involved from the Mayor to the President is saying the same thing, we will discover who did this and why.

The reality for me is that I very seldom think about this.  There are times when I do.  In fact, on a regular basis I consider this thought.  Saturday nights.  I have a routine that involves abstaining from intimacy with my wife, I shower and prepare for Sunday morning and I ask God to clean me on the inside and prepare me to speak to His people.  To wash my heart and cleanse me from all unrighteousness so [...]]]>

Until now Dad and Mom have taken this child every place they wanted him or her to go.  I have a brother in law whose wife just recently gave birth to their first child.  She makes no decisions.  She gets no say so.  She can cry, to be fed, to turned, to be [...]]]>
