I hope you had a Happy Valentine’s Day. I told my wife I loved her, called my mother, and called my sister; I checked off my list. I hope you have plenty of people in your life that you are loving and that are loving you. Everyone, on some level, needs to experience love. Love […]
Anything But Average
This last Super Bowl was anything but average. Every one of those athletes that performed in that game was anything but average. Usually, the team that wins is an above average team, and we can say that the Patriots are an above average team. Tom Brady is an above average quarterback. At the end of […]
It’s OK if….
What do I mean by “It’s ok if…”? I want to touch on disappointment. Life has its ups and downs. Life has its setbacks, and disappointment is a part of it. Disappointment is a feeling of sadness and displeasure caused by the unfulfillment of one’s hopes or expectations. I think in life, we have to […]
When GOOD is Great!
When good is great! Maybe you’ve never heard of it this way, but that’s what we are going to discuss today. While I was at the gym, a world class professional athlete who attends our church was also there. She is a professional trainer, body builder, in great shape and an all-around great person. I […]
I want to talk today about Resilience. It is defined as “the ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape, having elasticity.” This description is similar to a bamboo tree.

Winners vs. Losers
“I always turn to the sports page first. The sports page records people’s accomplishments. The front page, nothing but man’s failures.” – Earl Warren. One thing we love about sports is that there is a winner and there is a loser. I think one of the things we like about politics, as gruesome and cruel […]
It Takes Time!
The message today is titled “It Takes Time”. It’s time and it takes time. So what takes time? Something that was on my heart over the last couple of weeks was thinking about two of my friends who both went through a very difficult time. One lost his marriage by way of death and the […]
A Happy Mess
Who likes messes? I don’t know if any of you have ever had remodeling work done, but we are getting ready to make some small changes in our kitchen. With changes, comes a mess. Sometimes, in our own life, we can go through a mess. But, if we know anything about God, we know He […]
Let It Go!
Today I want to talk about letting it go. There was a child playing outside and he was upset and ran into the house frantically. His mother asked him what was wrong and the little boy said that the neighbor boy was teasing him and called him a bad name. The mother asked if he […]
