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
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
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 had a conversation with a lady recently that really made me think. She mentioned how when she received a bad health diagnosis, the nurse in the room came up to her and put her arm around her. The woman got mad, thinking she didn't need anyone's pity, and angrily left the room and walked … Continue reading Solace
Today my post contains one of my favorite words, vassal. I even did a post on it back in October 24, 2018. (https://godstillspeakstoday.com/2018/10/24/im-the-lords-vassal/) So when I heard this word in a movie the other evening, fief, I was led to investigate and use as a post. A fief was an element of medieval contracts based … Continue reading Fief
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!
Things I’m grateful for
A fellow reader suggested I re-post this today. So I am. Happy Thanksgiving! I try to count my blessings with regularity. It takes my mind off the negative and focuses on what positive things I do have in my life. I have been taking it to a new level lately by witnessing what I am … Continue reading Things I’m grateful for
It's a good thing I'm multi-lingual. I speak English (my native tongue) Spanish, Dog, Horse, Cow, Chicken, and Llama. I am also leaning to speak sheep, but the subjunctive tense is really difficult to grasp! But speaking sheep is for a future post. One morning the dogs were clearly letting me know that there was … Continue reading Foundation
You know when you have one of those moments where you see something and your brain makes a connection? I had one of those this morning. I was at a stop light in town and the truck in front on me had a license plate that said "GodWins." God Wins. WOW! What a great message … Continue reading Spoiler Alert!
