"Seeing is believing" is perhaps one of the most uncontested idioms in the English language. Court cases are waged on the power of eyewitness testimony. This post is a continued testimony of my previous two posts. Because I am seeing God in everything! https://godstillspeakstoday.com/2023/05/20/jaw-dropping/ https://godstillspeakstoday.com/2023/05/26/short-and-sweet/ I bought a small lamp with a shade for the … Continue reading Seeing is believing
Burn the ships
You may remember the commercial that said, "Not going anywhere for awhile? Grab a Snickers." I was thinking of this when I heard the song on the radio this week, Burn the Ships, by For King and Country. You may have heard the story of Cortés and the burning of his ships. In the year … Continue reading Burn the ships

We all have them. Those stories you love hearing over and over again. One of the ladies in the nursery at my church said one little girl wants to hear about Daniel in the lion's den every Sunday. As it is being read, the little girl is whispering the same words to the story. She … Continue reading Do the right thing
My best friend is an inspiration to me, and is also an incredible human being. I am blessed to have her in my life after what seemed to be a “friend drought.” Recently, she got me a Swindoll Study Bible, with my name embossed in gold on the front cover. It is the NLT, which … Continue reading 277 Challenge
I know, I know. No one likes listening to a whiner, but we got hit with another snowstorm where I live and the wind was blowing too, which pushed the snow into all the beautiful perimeter paths we shoveled along the fence to keep the dogs in the yard. This winter I feel like a … Continue reading Perimeter security
I remember when I was in my late teens and early twenties. Hey, don't laugh! I can remember that far back! I knew absolutely everything, and felt like I was bulletproof. Nothing was going to come against me or harm me. Then I grew up when reality set in. I've been thinking a lot about … Continue reading Bulletproof
Rest easy, dear readers, this is NOT another tale from the ranch! But it does involve scorpions! (So reader discretion is advised.) Scorpions are predatory arachnids. (ie: spiders!) They have eight legs, and are easily recognized by a pair of grasping pincers and a narrow, segmented tail, often carried in a characteristic forward curve over … Continue reading Scorpions
I got a telemarketer who called my office so good the other day! He started reading from his script, very monotone in his speech, and then asked if the owner was there. I replied, “Yes I am, and I did the job exactly as you told me to, but there's blood everywhere! What do you … Continue reading Dead weight
I always feel sorry for that poor guy named Will. You know, when in the movies, the person in charge says, “Fire at will!” Fire at will is a command given to allow the troops to fire when they are ready. They use their discretion and choose their targets. It gives the soldier a greater … Continue reading Pink Slip
It just slipped out!
I recently had one of those situations, where I was caught up in the moment, and the words just slipped out of my mouth. But I was not embarrassed by what came out. I was outside shoveling snow. It was so peaceful and quiet, and I was just quietly praising God. I got so caught … Continue reading It just slipped out!
