Something Beautiful for God

Greetings! When I did youth work, I would often ask the kids a simple question, “If you could eat dinner with anyone, living or dead, who would it be and why?” It always was amazing the answers I would hear. Some would be serious, while others would try to make a joke. Some kids would […]

Give All You Can

Greetings! I have no idea when I learned to ride a bike. Nor do I remember who taught me, but I do know it wasn’t my mom. She was a pretty amazing lady, but she never learned to ride a bike. Anyhow, I would guess that when I learned, it wasn’t much different than the […]

But a recent issue of National Geographic reported on new micro-CT scans that show how metamorphosis takes place. Metamorphosis is a radical change in form and function. Many animals […]

Change in Attitude?

Those that weren’t expletives were, to say the least, rude. Jimmy tried hard to change the bird’s attitude. He was constantly saying polite words and playing soft music; he […]

Mulligans

Greetings! I saw this story on the internet (so it has to be true, right?) about this retired guy in Florida who was a golf addict. According to the story, he played 5-6 times a week, rain or shine. It seems that the wife grew tired of being a golf widow, so she begged her […]
