  • Be “Hoo” You Are

    ~My eyes are awake through the night watches, that I may meditate on Your word~ Psalm 119:148 As a young child I came alive at night, and snoozed each morning till the last possible second. In college I signed up for all the evening classes I could find. The professor of my one morning class once gave […]

  • Moving Right Along

      Let your eyes look straight ahead, and your eyelids look right before you. Proverbs 4:25 Not too long ago I was alerted to a new comment on one of my old blog posts. I had to read my entry for context before responding, and found myself frowning. At the time that post was written, […]

Remote in hand, I flipped through their zillion channels for something suitable to watch. It went a little like this: Click. Pause. Interesting? No. Click. Pause. Seen it. Click. […]

  • The Bible – Better Read Than Watched on TV

    I’ve been hearing all week about the upcoming The Bible series on the History channel. Though I originally determined not to watch it (because movies derived from books rarely do the original work justice, and I didn’t want to have that disgusted feeling about the precious Word put to screen) I succumbed to the pressure […]
