As a child growing up in the late 50’s and early 60’s my life was great! I had great parents and life was good! My Mom, of course, was a typical Mom. She would feed me, clean my clothes, keep the house clean and fuss at me when I needed fussin’ at and her spankings were Momma Spankings.
A Momma Spanking was the kind of spanking that you had t [...]
A few days ago, during Tropical Storm Bill, myself and three co-workers drove past a two-car accident on Main Street in Tomball. It was raining, the streets were slick and just generally poor driving conditions. I closed my eyes while passing the accident, to pray that everyone in both vehicles were ok, and sud [...]
The Bible has a verse in it that makes reference to the fact that “there is nothing new under the sun”.
I guess, in general, that is very true. But if you get down to detail, I doubt that some Roman Soldier sat down and wished he had a better cell phone. I am sure though he wished he had a better way to communicate.
This thought has hit me [...]
Life in this area has been a good one. I have seen a lot of ups and downs to the lifestyles afforded in this part of Texas and, for the most part, the ups are way ahead of the downs. When the rest of the world seems to be going “down there” in a handbasket, Texas and a lot of the southern states seem to be doing OK. It seems to me, we like t [...]
After almost seven years, I have finally obtained a new hairdresser. Well, actually two of them. My last hairdresser retired after almost five years of on again off again washing and styling of my hair. I would always wake up in the mornings, feeling extra tired after my hair appointments. I would toss and turn all night long. My knees woul [...]
Have you ever wondered why as human beings that we ever say things that are kinda downright dumb? Now I am not against the human species at all, but the supposedly higher intelligence that speaks sometimes spurt out some of the most foolish things.
Take for example the recent horrible train accident we have all heard about. The news people ha [...]
Every once in a while my story gets extremely personal. That is my state of mind as I write this story today. One of my friends has passed away and it has created a small void in the memories I have had in years past of him.
Mr. Talmadge (Andy) Anderson was a guy that I liked to trade jokes with. I know him simply as, Mr. Andy. One of the fav [...]
Have you ever thought about how a person can measure various aspects of their life? Take for example Christianity. How many times does a person’s overall appearance define their level of Christianity? I am sure we have all caught ourselves in that moment of judgement on others simply by looking at them and deeming them as not being a very goo [...]
Somewhere in the Bible there is something written that states “your sins shall find you out.” Now I know that I may have butchered this up somewhat and I also know that it wouldn’t take two minutes to look the scripture up but then I wouldn’t have been able to fill up this paragraph with words. The truth of the matter is that I have sta [...]
