Stat close to the One who loves you most

Where has the year gone? It seems like only yesterday that we were celebrating Christmas and then the New Year. And later this week we will reach the half-way point of 2010. That seems so difficult to believe.

God is always the most important

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof" (Matt. 6:33, 34).

What it mean to have a loving father

Sunday, June 20, we celebrated Father's Day, but the sad thing about it is there are a lot of fathers who don't take this title very seriously.

A Father's Day challenge to be strong, kind

I don't remember the exact words I spoke, but very quickly one of my nephews exclaimed, "Uh oh, Uncle Brad, you have to give up your 'man card.'"

Fathers Day

Happy Father's Day! Those words are echoing through the community all morning, accompanied with breakfast in bed (Cheerio's with chocolate milk, burnt toast and hand drawn pictures of adolescent abstract art, rendered by a future Picasso) or, perhaps, with a slender box containing the world's ugliest tie. In an earlier era, when school electives carried a higher value and priority, one might receive the odd handcrafted ceramic ashtray (emphasis on the word "odd").

Little these days remains the same

Have you bought your iPad yet? I have to admit that mine still safely resides at a store somewhere. For that matter, I don't even have an iPod yet. How backwards is that?

Things, life can fall apart

We moved into our present house around nine years ago. We have a circular driveway that is concrete close to the house but asphalt on both sides as it gets closer to the road coming into our cul-de-sac.

I'm sure you have seen the commercial at some point. She says, "It has to be true. I read it on the Internet." And then she meets her date -the "French supermodel." And you chuckle because you know someone who is that naïve.
