A Great and Glorious Game

|

Ah, Opening Day! Well, sort of, anyway. MLB has spread the opening festivities over 2 days. And since I”m a die-hard Chicago White Sox follower, and the Sox play their first game tomorrow, I’m going to count tomorrow as my official Opening Day! I can guarantee you I’ll be streaming at least part of the … Continued

Peeps!

Easter is coming, which means you can’t walk down the seasonal aisle at the grocery store without passing lots of candy. By the way – is it just me, or does it seem like the Easter candy has been there a LONG time – since just after Valentine’s Day? Good grief…Easter is as late as … Continued

Beauty is God’s Handwriting

|

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God’s handwriting — a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing. Ralph Waldo Emerson  Join our Facebook community

Before I left for Arizona I said I’d share some photographs on the other side. Time to make good! Disclaimer: this trip was more about spring baseball than photography. Unfortunately, since the White Sox moved from Tucson to Phoenix, it has significantly curtailed my options when it comes to shooting. Some of the choicest scenery … Continued

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Everybody’s a little bit Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, right? I’ll be sitting at the ballpark this afternoon in suburban Phoenix, enjoying a little Spring Training action between my Chicago White Sox and the Milwaukee Brewers.

There are Books…

|

American Revolutionary leader Patrick Henry had this to say about the Bible: “There is a book worth all other books which were ever printed.” I love books and I’ve got lots of them…as enjoyable and informative as many of them are, and as much as I treasure them…none of them compares to the Bible. I’d … Continued

Are Your Troubles Trivial?

|

Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7 I’ve always liked that verse; I find it comforting. Sometimes, though, our troubles might seem somewhat trivial in the overall scheme of things. Maybe they’re too small to bring before the God of the universe? R.A. Torrey, an American evangelist, pastor … Continued

Strong Tea…

Christians Under Seige

|

It’s happening more and more routinely – Christians and Christianity are under assault in many corners of the world. I don’t normally get political here on the blog, but these events and the frequency with which they are occuring are unsettling… Consider just a few recent situations: A bomb ripped through a church in Alexandria, … Continued
