When I was in College studying computer science (it was called data processing back then), we were taught the KISS method: keep it simple, stupid. Sometimes the best answer is the simple one. No sense getting all complicated; it’s not impressing anyone. We try to figure out the answers and get all overwhelmed. Sometimes we … More Keep It Simple, Saint
We all have movies we like to watch again and again. The best movies are the ones where each time you watch the movie, you notice something new and different that adds to the overall idea.

There’s always things to do, read, write, nap, watch movies (isn’t winter a great time to … More I fell into a deep depression…
My original post about the Orphan Spirit is popular. I didn’t write most of the information there; I included articles by other authors and included their names and websites.

The Book of Exodus (and the Gospel of Matthew) both start with a genealogy. We tend to quickly read over a list of names and deem it “boring.” But all of God’s Word was written with purpose. First, these are the names of the tribes of the men who fathered the tribes of Israel. Starting … More The Exodus “Name Game”
Years ago when I had my first car and my first custom car stereo system, I did mix a tape and we played it until it got that “window sound” –which means it was time to throw it out the window. 😉 Many years have passed since then, and life has changed me.

We had a surprise guest attend our usual Tuesday prayer group, Pastor Betty Wodila, from Uganda.
