Let the Bullets Fly!
20th of July

Let the Bullets Fly!


Like many, I have been grieving over all the bullets flying.  Bullets made with lead. Bullets made with words. Both wounding, maiming, destroying.  Seems to be increasing.  The murders. The hate. The protests. The terror.  What’s one to do? I say, act like a dog . . . Yesterday morning as I lay in bed with the sun just beginning to shine through the east windows, I heard the thunder of four little feet tearing

Black + White = Love for All


Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. 1 Peter 4:8   We opened our farm this week for Nature Camp 2016. Kids from the worst neighborhood in Milwaukee come here each summer to experience God’s creation—fields and ponds, trees and flowers, birds and butterflies, horses and barn cats, black and white. This is the place where kids from the “hood” meet kids from the “burbs”—a place where we

Truth Never Dies


Today, I’m passing along a poem I found in William J. Bennett’s The Book of Virtues, a marvelous collection of writings from he compiled for children on the subjects of self-discipline, compassion, responsibility, friendship, work, courage, perseverance, honesty, loyalty and faith.  These stories and poems are not just for children. They are for all people everywhere. The following poem, “Truth Never Dies”, does not name the author but I found these words so comforting in

Character Matters

Character Matters


He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8   That storm rolled in like a freight train yesterday. Saw it coming from the west all dark and ominous. Ran to the barn and closed those sliding doors. Got back inside just in time. BOOM! Lightening and thunder came with the

True Church
6th of July

True Church


  Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. James 2:17 Started in the fields yesterday, early afternoon, church on the farm. Ended up in the barn at 9:45. PM. Longest church I’ve ever witnessed. Don’t know if anyone here knew they were at church or in church, but I still say it was church just the same. That farmer up the road rambled down with his haying equipment late morning and

True Independence
4th of July

True Independence


  Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2 Corinthians 3:17   Today is Independence Day, 2016. For starters, I reread the Declaration of Independence (click to read) and familiarized myself with the reasons we separated ourself from England in 1776.  One word . . . Tyranny. Our forefathers found life under tyrannical rule absolutely unacceptable.  Politically, I wonder how many of us have forgotten?  How

When The Sky Is Dark and the Rain Comes and You Wonder If You’ll Ever See the Sun Again


The Spirit of the Lord is on me,  because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. Luke 4:18-19 The thunder rolled. And so it goes . . . Near-perfect stretch of summer days followed by overcast. And then, clouds moved fast last

Through Thick and Thin


Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. Hebrews 12:2 Hayfield came down the other day.  At least part of it.  We split the harvest with the farmer up the road who has his cows. He’s got the equipment. We’ve got the grass. His cows and our horses need fed during the long stretch of frozen Wisconsin fields.  “Can’t cut it all today. Gonna rain. Can only cut what

At the End of My Rope and What Came Next


So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10 I have a love/hate relationship with spiritual growth.  Actually, I prefer to do things I love.  I prefer to do things I’m good at. If spiritual growth were easy all the time, I’d be cool. But when I’m stretched

As For Me and My House

As For Me and My House


How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!” Isaiah 52:7   With so much bad news delivered every day, ever feel in need of something uplifting?  Me too. When I think about all the problems in our lives and our world, I wonder. What can I do? Early this morning, my Morgan

What are We Waiting For?


Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6 A continuation from Monday’s post . . . Back to Benghazi, which is just a reflection of reality, now . . . Hate spreading hate.  Violence spreading violence. I’m not trying to incite hatred or violence by bringing up this subject. But may I kindly ask what’s stirring in your own heart

Why?

Why?


Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6 Why? What’s the answer? I wonder. Consider the whole story of life, starting with a snippet . . . Watched a movie last night about the tragedy in Benghazi, four years ago, two months before the presidential election. 13 Hours.   (Click on the 13 hours above and receive a free trip
