How much will you pay for an authentic James Harrison Superbowl record breaker T-Shirt? I think this shirt may have been worn during the Super Bowl game and James made his record breaking touch down. I think the guy that has this shirt stole it off his back while he was in the shower.
Or possibly you’d like to bid on Aretha’s hat she recently wore at the Oh’Bama inaugeration. She says she’s not sure if she is going to let the Smithsonian Institute have it.
And if nothing else you could always bid on Michael Swim Phelps’s hooka pipe. He says he used bad judgement. Probably thought the pipe was a bad fit for his teeth.
Or possibly my dirty socks.
I don’t know. I guess the Super Bowl brings out the best or worst in me. Sigh…

I am focused and praying hard for couples in marriage that I know are struggling. Yesterday, one of the couples said they were separating and another said they had already separated. Sometimes it seems God sends back a “Google Error. Bad Request.” response.
What am I doing wrong in my prayers? If separation is the result of my prayers, maybe I shouldn’t be praying? Is God just too busy keeping up with presidents and kings and things? Does God really care?
Then, I think about Jesus willingly dieing on the cross that I might have life and have it abundantly. That negates any argument of not caring. Could it be that my prayers are adding light to the couples’ life that reveals things they don’t want to see?
Running from God is never the solution. He never tires. He will chase. Abundance is found when God is embraced and you walk faithfully together through the fire. Let God catch you. Give up the chase. He can and will make a difference. God bless.
Till death do us part… Excuse me! But what does that mean? Does it mean I will stick with you as long as I “FEEL” like I love you? Does it mean I will be faithful as long as you stay young and perky? OR does it mean I will stay faithful and love you until death separates us?
Believers in our church are beginning a movement to turn our eyes and hearts to God every 60 minutes for 60 days. God has impressed me that for now, I am to pray for specific marriages. These couples include friends, family and even a new friend reqesting prayer in Barbados.
Something really profound happened today. A friend called today and said he was bringing his wife to town as a surprise and wondered if we could meet for dinner at the River Walk. We hadn’t seen each other for years and he reminded me that they were in a marriage enrichment class we taught 10 or 15 years, ago.
Our meeting was not a coincidence. It was God reminding me. The battle for marriages is worth the fight. If I can pray for you or a friend of yours, let me know. I will be honored to add your choice to my list. God is in the miracle working business for those that love Him.
I look forward sharing some incredible “God Spots” with you as God rescues marriages!
The Holy Word of God can not be captured and put in a box. There is but One mighty and powerful God who is able to subdue the evil one. It is by His Word and authority that the evil one has no place in our life.
Value His Word. It is a gift from the One true God. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost.
Believe and you will receive. Reject Christ and you will die and experience death eternally in Hell. There is a place called Hell for those that reject the name of Jesus.
Thank you Jesus for dieing on the cross and saving us from our sins. There is but one true God. Thank you Jesus.
Thank you for revelation. Thank you for growing us in your Spirit. May the world believe in the One true God. Amen.
Jim Thornber (monk buddy) commented, “Most people have what is called the “opposable” thumb. But, since this thumb is actually on the same hand as the rest of the fingers, it is not really in opposition to the other fingers, but works in conjunction with them to do more than they could do alone. “
This is an incredible new year’s revelation. I’ve heard and considered the Biblical references to each of us being a different part of the body and it takes all of us to create a healthy whole. But I never nailed down where I fit in the body. Jim’s comment really rang home for me.
Today, I am a thumb. I am not a finger. I don’t really fit in with the fingers at a dance, but I can enable them to get to the dance. Where would the fingers be without a thumb? Possibly, just wall flowers leaning up against the wall waiting for a thumb to come along.
I understand the fingers can be a bit uncomfortable with the thumb being so different. But, have you ever seen a hand of fingers open a pickle jar without a thumb. You could get all the fingers in the world to contribute to the effort and likely the jar won’t open without at least one thumb.
This is so impactful for me, because I don’t have to be a finger. Others may wish I were a finger so I’d fit in, but somehow I don’t think the world will be a better place without thumbs.
“Thumbs up” to the “thumbs” of the world! Even ichabod is a self confessed thumb. How many other “thumbs” are out there?
Cora and her visiting sister from DC went house looking this week. You know it was that kind of thing you do about once a year. You either have to try on shoes or look at houses. You really don’t need either, but it is just something you need to do.
After careful prayer and consideration of all the Financial Peace University principles, I helped them pick one out. I cashed in our 201K retirement plan and figure this one will do fine. It is something we can afford and will be economical to heat in winter and cool in the summer. Family gatherings might be a bit cramped, but it’s all about love. So, it’ll be ok.
I thought the xeroscapping was well appointed. The cactus further actuates the sensitivity to conservation and treating mother earth with respect.
So in the new year, I want to invite all my blogging buddies from all over the world to drop by spend some time with us at our new digs.
Christmas celebration at Grace Point Church was “electric!” With Justin on the grand piano the music was inspiring and easy to see God’s pleasure in His house. Thank you Grace Point for a wonderful year and an awesome opportunity to close it out right, remembering all that God has done and all He has planned.
I want to do something special for God this year. I want to put a picture of Him in a frame and hang him along side of Jesus.
Now don’t take offense. I know many of you have a picture of Jesus hanging on the wall right alongside of Elvis. I think it is time to hang a picture of God.
This is where the trouble begins. What is the picture going to be? No one has seen the face of God and lived to tell about it. Moses saw the backside of His glory. That was a start but doesn’t help me.
Can anyone help me with your idea of what goes in the picture? Possibly, I should put…
- A beautiful sunset
- A walk on the beach
- Two love birds
- Giving $5 to the “bell ringer”
- Standing on the corner yelling Jesus
What do you think? What should I put in the picture? OK. You read the blog. I see you. There you are. A few hundred of you are lurking. Now you are grinning. I told you I could see you.
Now click on comments and give a word or two of your picture of God. Do it anonymously if you must. Come on. Click. You can do it. Put your fear behind. That’s it. Click. Thanks!
First let me clarify. I am referring to God’s son and not ‘Hey Soos’ for all of us in Texas. I’m ok with ‘Hey Soos’ coming today, but probably won’t impact me as much. Now if Jesus shows up today, that will be another thing.
I’m wondering what I will be doing if Jesus shows up. When I see Him and the angelic host in the clouds, will I stop and wait for Windows to shup down? Or possibly, I might get that last swallow of coffee before I step out.
I’ve been thinking. If I really believed Jesus were coming today or relatively soon, what should I do differently. Like, should I leave the keys in the car so “Pick a Lock’ doesn’t have to be called. Maybe, I should go ahead and clean out the fridge of the things that might go bad. I wouldn’t want to leave a mess. Oh yeah, can’t forget the garbage.
More importantly, maybe I should leave my gate open so my dog Spot could get out and have a chance at a freedom of his own. I’ll probably leave a bag of dog food out, but how much is enough? I don’t know. I was just thinking.
What might you do differently if you knew Jesus were coming today?
