PastorMike's Book

Things Not Clearly Seen

Coming home from the Emergency Care Sunday evening, I felt like I needed to sit out for a while.  Midnight, quite dark  The neighborhood had already gone to bed.  I settled down in an Adorandak chair near the pool and pulled out my pipe.  I don't...

Some see "differencies,' some see how alike we are

It is quite amazing how people vary in their assessment of other ethnicities.  It is not that we are very different, we just seem different in different eyes.   I don't know if someone suggested this to me when I was three or four  or in that...

Under the Big Dipper ...

The power went off last night for one hour.  The whole north end of town.  I went and sat under the stars.  So much brighter when there are no lights in the neighborhood.   What a revelation.   The Big Dipper (Ursa Major) continuosly moves...

What the THROW AWAY GENERATION doesn't know.

I'm accused of being a pack rat.  But I don't save everything. just things I know are valuable and will be needed at sometime in he future.  And I'm a confirmed DIYer.   Case in point  Everytime I buy a new computer I get a new power cord.  But...

ARE they deliberately trying to start a Civil War???

The order seems to be out. "Get tough, especially on minorities." And it looks like this order is being heard whether in Baltimore or Brooklyn or Missouri or Texas or Arizona. "Get them fighting among themselves. Never mind the consequencies,...

WOULD i GIVE A MILLION TOMORROWS FOR JUST ONE YESTERDAY?

HELL, NO.  No deal.  Oh, there were a few yesterdays I'd like to visit again for an afternoon or evening,  But I'd trade noting for them.  I was a total dumb ass as a young man.  I didn't understand body language.  I didn't believe it when I saw it. ...

SUPPOSE... Just SUPPOSE...

This is for those who believe the Bible is right or right in it's predictions of how things will turn out in the end times.  What I am supposing is that Jesus is messiah and is at this moment preparing his return to earth.  He is already warring with...
