Today is dedicated to the men who sacrifice so much to provide for their families. Sometimes they go without to make ends meet. In this tough economy and times of high unemployment, these men work extra hours so their families can have food, clothing, shelter, and the necessities of life.
"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" (2 Peter 3:9).
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?
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.
With the advent of summer, many churches in and around Liberty County are having vacation Bible schools.
In our country we have just observed May 31 as Memorial Day. How fitting it is to remember all those who have served to make sure we can have the freedoms we enjoy, and especially to remember those who have given their very lives for us. Over the years to some this special day has lost its meaning. Parents may have failed to explain the importance of the day, rather seeing it as a day of going to the beach, or having friends over for a cookout, or some other form of recreation. Proper recreation is not a bad thing ...
A few weeks back, one of our older gentlemen at the church dropped by the church.
It really was amazing how it happened. I'm not sure what he did to change. But when I was about 15 years old my dad was not very smart. He had all kinds of beliefs and rules that were old fashioned and foolish. I even got to the point that I prayed that he would get smarter and more up to date. It only took about 10 years, but that is actually what happened. By the time I was 25 he was one of the smartest men I knew. And he had not even gone to school. He just ...

Many of us remember the TV commercial about the elderly woman who was alone, fell in her home and "couldn't get up." She found herself in a bad situation. We all remember the woman's cry for help: "Help, I've fallen and I can't get up."
If you have ever hiked through a wooded area you understand, "following the path."
Jesus said, "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." During this Memorial Day weekend, we take the time to remember those who have given their lives for us. I know that we, as a nation, have often debated the merits of a particular war. The reasons for conflict have been many and varied.
A few weeks ago I started walking/running in the mornings, mainly for health reasons. It has been hard to be consistent so I only do this activity a few days a week.
This weekend, most of us are off from work and are enjoying life and the weekend.
The Apostle Paul wrote, "Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God" (2 Cor. 1:2 – 4). In a world where trouble waits around every corner it is good to know that Christians do not have to face trouble alone, we ...
Last week, we began talking about how obedience to God is a must. We looked at two Old Testament examples of this idea: the Israelites and the brazen serpent (Numbers 21) and the account of Naaman (2 Kings 5).
Teachers in Bryan County schools go back to work Monday, and the students will only be a week behind them.
Human beings always have had conflict with one another. Conflict can sever once-good relationships that can go unresolved throughout one's lifetime.
I recently read a story of a lady who spent $30,000 so she could look like Kim Kardashian. Now, she has to spend the next few years paying it off.
Back in the summers of my college days, I worked for a builder. For the most part, I kept the skilled laborers (carpenters and brick layers) supplied with materials. Then, there was the biggest mistake I made during my first summer.
Anyone who desires to be saved needs to realize that God's will must be obeyed.
On most Fourth of Julys, our family, which this year included 17 of us, meets at our house for food, fun and fireworks.
