What Kind of Farmer are You?

By · Comments (0)

I have been seeing too many couples lately, who have been married 25+ years, and who are ready to divorce.  The problems have been there for a long, long time.  They are reaping what they have knowing or unknowingly  sowed. It is a bit hard to think that they did not know what they were […]

Everybody is a Rock Star

By · Comments (0)

Do you remember the movie, “The Incredibles?”  It’s one of my favorites.  A few things stand out about that movie: #1  When the bad guy, Syndrome (Buddy Pine), says to Mr. Incredible, “If everyone is Super, then no one is”.  I think he was really hurt when Mr. Incredible told him (when he was young) […]

The Flintstones teach BOUNDARIES IN MARRIAGE

By · Comments Comments Off on The Flintstones teach BOUNDARIES IN MARRIAGE

I’ve been thinking a lot about the sanctity of marriage. I’ve thought about friendships with the opposite sex and how that has changed over the past decade or so. Having friends while married is a good thing I believe, for both men and women. I think of the cartoon, The Flintstones, and watched it while […]

LEAN ON ME

By · Comments Comments Off on LEAN ON ME

I was listening to my favorite oldies station today and “Lean on Me” was playing. Here are some of the lyrics for those who don’t know the song (by Bill Withers, 1972): Sometimes in our lives We all have pain We all have sorrow But if we are wise We know that there’s always tomorrow […]

Love Never Gives Up

By · Comments Comments Off on Love Never Gives Up

I am sitting here enjoying my fresh cup of coffee and wondering about a recent conversation I had with a man who is deeply in love with his girlfriend.  His depth of love is quite impressive, as is his perseverance and genuineness.  He so wants his beloved to be healthy enough to accept his love; […]

Too Little Too Late?

By · Comments Comments Off on Too Little Too Late?

I was thinking about my previous post about perseverance in marriage. I was pondering a situation where a husband has neglected his wife, and now she is done with him. She’s endured him telling her how she feels, what to think, what to do, etc. for too long now. She’s wants a divorce. He’s surprised […]

Mammograms and Marriage

By · Comments Comments Off on Mammograms and Marriage

Now there’s a snappy title!  Seriously, I thought of this while at the doctor’s office this morning.  I was getting my annual mammogram.  Now, say “Ouch” all together with me ladies! Yes, it hurt as usual, but with practically 80% of all the females on my mother’s side of the family tree having had breast cancer, […]

The Family Dinner

By · Comments Comments Off on The Family Dinner

I’ve spoken to a number of people and I am surprised to hear, all too often, that they “don’t sit down for dinner as a family”.  Why, I ask. “we’re too busy, ya know, Joey has basketball and Susie has volleyball”.  They also state they “eat out a  lot too” because of all the running […]

When to Say “I’m Sorry”

By · Comments Comments Off on When to Say “I’m Sorry”

I was listening to my favorite oldie station again and the song, “Could I have this dance for the rest of my life?” by Anne Murray came on.  I sang along.  Right after that song came, “I’m sorry” by Brenda Lee. At first, I thought how ironic. But then I realized it was perfect together:  I want to dance […]

Loving Your Unlovable Spouse

By · Comments Comments Off on Loving Your Unlovable Spouse

Now there’s a catchy title, huh? I’m sure no one has an unlovable spouse now, do they? Well, hopefully not, right? Because this is where the rubber meets the road in marriage: learning to give love, respect and grace to another human being when they are NOT particularly giving those things to me in return. Let […]

Going For The Gold

By · Comments Comments Off on Going For The Gold

I have been re-watching a little of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Last night the figure skating couples were on and I thought, “Isn’t marriage a bit like this?” Think about it. You are both skaters, you both work on your own, but then come together to create something very beautiful! At the very least, […]

10 Seconds to Say Yes to God

By · Comments (1)

I recently read a book entitled, “The 10-Second Rule:  Following Jesus Made Simple” by Clare De Graaf.  A great book which I highly recommend.  It’s basic premise is just like the title:  just do the next thing you’re reasonably certain Jesus wants you to do.  That simple.  So, I thought, how can I apply this […]

1913 Marital Advice

By · Comments (1)

I have this book called “Don’ts for Husbands, Don’ts for Wives” written in 1913.  I thought I would share some of the advice given.  I’d really like your comments on them too, so feel free to leave them! Don’ts for Husbands: Don’t look at things solely from a man’s point of view.  Put yourself in your wife’s […]

P-A-C

By · Comments Comments Off on P-A-C

No, I’m not going to write about PAC-Man, although I did enjoy playing that video game in the 80’s. What does PAC stand for? Let me tell you: We all walk around with these invisible letters above our heads. No, really, we do! We all speak in one of three voices. The P stands for […]

Some Thoughts on Power, Prayer, and Pleasing

By · Comments Comments Off on Some Thoughts on Power, Prayer, and Pleasing

I’ve been reading in 2 Chronicles lately, through my daily bible reading plan. It always amazes me amidst all the wars and violence of the Old Testament there are verses tucked away that speak to me. One verse in ch. 25 is, v. 2: “Amaziah did what was pleasing in the Lord’s sight, but not […]

Running the Race

By · Comments Comments Off on Running the Race

I was out riding my bike this morning.  The trail was particularly busy for a Saturday.  After going a little ways I saw a water station.  That’s when I noticed a bunch of runners with numbers on them.  Ah, a race is going on.  Then I saw the yellow mile markers (whoa, I was already […]

Busyness is not Next to Godliness

By · Comments Comments Off on Busyness is not Next to Godliness

I’ve been hearing people say over and over, “I’m too busy” “We wish we could, but we’ve got something going on”.  I wonder, why are we Americans SO busy?  What’s the point, really?  Going at breakneck speed drains us, stresses us out, makes us grumpy—or at least it does me! How can I reasonably expect […]

Wanting a Fire by Night and a Cloud by Day

By · Comments Comments Off on Wanting a Fire by Night and a Cloud by Day

I have been reading in Numbers lately.  Yeah, not straight through 🙂 My bible reading plan gives you about four chapters at a times and jumps around quite a bit.  So, one day I’m in Psalms, next in the New Testament, and now, in Numbers.  I am always amazed how God does two things: Gives […]

Why Your Marriage Matters

I’ve entitled my blog When Marriage Matters for a couple of reasons: It sounds good 5 people agreed with me that it sounds good It really does matter. It is succinct I forgot this reason already 🙁   (and five is a much better number than four!) What I’d like to share is why it matters […]
