I can’t remember for sure when I started this tradition, but I have not missed a year in the past 25 years.

Every Independence Day, I take time to read the Declaration of Independence as written by our founding fathers. …


This afternoon, I learned a Facebook friend died suddenly on July 1. He suffered from an aortic dissection and died quickly.

That meant there was no time for goodbyes or to offer final words of advice and encouragement.

People reflecting on his death and the man by viewing his Facebook…


People put things in storage for a number of reasons, but most often because they are moving or downsizing and they don’t have any place to put the items.

But, then the owners might fall on hard times to the point they can no longer pay the storage fees. If…


When 100,000 people are assembled in a large group, it may appear to be a huge crowd. But, compared to the population of an entire country, that same group may be a very small subset.

Have you ever been in a crowd of 100,000 people? Crowds of that size attract a lot of attention for being loud and boisterous. In the wrong circumstances, gatherings that large can take on lives of their own. That’s where we coin the term “mob mentality.”

Surely 100,000 people is…


When a car wasn’t miraculously repaired, one teen thought that was proof God didn’t exist. However, I think God really answered the prayer, but not in the way the young man had hoped.

One of the biggest stumbling blocks to accepting the existence of God often comes from unanswered prayer.

I was talking to a gentleman the other day who recalled a story that “proved” God did not exist because of an unanswered prayer.

When he was 15 years old, he and a…


I loved Jered Wilson’s column at The Gospel Coalition where he explored the problems men face in approaching midlife.

At 61, I am beyond midlife and firmly entrenched in geezerdom. But, it doesn’t mean that I didn’t experience some problems as I approached 50.

The first thing I remember is…


“And he went outside and wept bitterly.”

That passage from Luke 22:62 and Matthew 26:75 describes how Apostle Peter responded after denying that he even knew Jesus — a man Peter had traveled with every day for more than three years, and a man who considered Peter to be one…


Last week, I explored the need to cancel-proof your life so you’re prepared for when the “woke monster” comes looking to devour you for something you wrote, said or did — even if it was decades ago.

When making yourself cancel-proof, the first thing you’ll want to do is ensure…


Words mean things and I’ll admit that I often use the words “wisdom” and “knowledge” almost interchangeably without realizing they have two distinctly different meanings.

There is a joke that describes the difference between the two words as knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit, while wisdom is…


You are just one social media post away from losing your job or your business.

The cancel culture is rampant in early 2021. It is an all-consuming fire seeking to burn down everything and everyone in its path.

No longer content to demonstrate in public, protestors are showing up at…
