Allegation Credible

Friday, February 1st, 2019

Share on Facebook I lost a friend today. Not to death, but to a credible allegation. As his friend, I hold out hope it remains an allegation. Allegation means there is no proof.

Thank Ayn Rand. Thank You Milton Friedman. Thank you Frederick […]

Merry Christmas

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

Share on Facebook The commercial Christmas ended at Midnight December 25 as retailers switched to Easter candy.  Believers, however, have had the rest of the Twelve Days of Christmas to reflect.  Christians and non-Christians alike celebrate at the darkest time of the year to remember the light.  It’s no wonder then that light plays an […]

Gifts for Christ or Herod?

Share on Facebook Christmas time teaches a lot about our priorities. In my house growing up it was all about the kids. Our families would all gather at my grandmother’s house, later my dad’s, to celebrate. The highlight was the kid’s opening presents. Giving to the “least of these” was the reason for the season. […]
