    Who can't work?

    In Florida, we have been under a stay at home order for a while. When you drive around here, almost every business is still open. The FDOH has published a list of essential services that are exempted. I think just about every business can find one of the exemptions that allow them to stay...

    Granddaughter doesn't Drive

    My 19 year old doesn't drive, nor does she want to learn. She has a good job about 10 miles from home, and she depends on her father to drive her to and from work. I believe that her sticking point is taking an online drug course. She is afraid that she won't be able to pass it. Does anyone...

    What are some of the good things that have happened to you during this stay at home? All my children and grandchildren except one are still employed, and are receiving their paychecks. My grandson in Michigan is out of work. He was to start a new job the day after the project was put on hold...

    Are the young people taking stay at home seriously?

    I usually look at the Florida covid19 web site every morning and today, in the five counties surrounding my home county and including my home county, I noticed that more than half of the new cases are under 56 years old. In some of the counties, all of the cases are under 56 years old. How...

    I miss my hugs

    Every one arrives early for our church services. We stop by the coffee pot, get a cup of our favorite brew, then it's hug time. From the toddlers, through every youth and teenager, every young adult through the last senior adult to arrive, there's enough hugs to brighten any poor souls day and...

    Covid19 and Russia

    Am I the only one who is wondering why Russia has so few cases of covid19. Could it be that they actually developed and released it? Maybe they actually have a vaccine for it. Anyway, it's something to think about.

    Social Distancing

    When I first heard the term social distancing, all I could think about was cell phones had finally taken over any perception of sanity left in the world. Everywhere I go, I see people walking together, but they are not aware of each other. When I go to a restaurant, couples have their face...

    Spring Break Travel

    What will you be doing for Spring Break? I live in the panhandle of Florida. Much of our annual income depends heavily on Spring Break (the next six weeks). Our economy was decimated by hurricane Michael and is only just beginning to recover. A hit from the corona virus fear mongers could be...

    EPD diet

    My wife has been diagnosed with EPD (Exocrine Pancreatic Deficiency). She has been prescribed drug called Creon. It replaces the exocrine enzymes that her pancreas no longer produces. It must be taken any time she eats (meals, snacks, etc). It is also quite expensive. If she doesn't take...

    Which One?

    If you were allowed to keep only one Bible verse with you, what would that verse be and why would you choose that verse?

    IOWA caucus results

    What a joke! As of this time 71% of the precincts reporting. It looks like a Pete and Bernie victory with a combined 51+% of the vote. I can't imagine a country with either of them as president.

    The dial of Ahaz

    In Isaiah 38 God turned back the shadow on the dial of Ahaz ten steps (degrees in KJV). Isaiah 38:8 Behold, I will make the shadow cast by the declining sun on the dial of Ahaz turn back ten steps.” So the sun turned back on the dial the ten steps by which it had declined. ESV Isaiah 38:8...

    Another First for the Great State of California

    Why stop at nuclear, coal, and oil? Now natural gas is on the chopping block. Cities ban natural gas to fight climate change

    On the lite side, Pete really does wash his hands.

    While eating day old pizza, Pete Hegseth told his co hosts on "Fox and Friends Sunday" that he had not washed his hands in over a week. His Twitter stream lit up. He finally did what any dedicated republican or democrat would do. He repented (admitted that it was a joke) and told everyone...

    Pray for our church

    Thank you for the prayers. Please pray for our church services tomorrow. We will be able to meet in our sanctuary for the first time since the storm. Many of our members are still not able to get from their homes to the church. Pray that we can get God's message to them.

    Pray for the churches and families affected by storm.

    The needs are great, the people are hurting, and everyone needs comfort. Pray that God will provide cooler weather and a dryer season for recovery and restoration of our homes and businesses. Pray that God will touch the hearts of those in need of his love and comfort. Pray for all of the...

    We need your prayers.

    We are safe and uninjured. The hurricane left us with a lot of damage, much of which is not covered by our homeowners. We will be without power for at least three more weeks. We have a generator, but we are rapidly depleting funds for fuel to keep it running. Our story is repeated at every...
