Friends of Jesus...

Jesus was called "Friend of Sinners" because He came to deliver (all of us who will call Him "Friend") from all Sin. I am personally a debtor of His Friendship. 

In John 15, Jesus said to those closest to Him: "I have called you friends." 

I had this thought recently: "Friends of Jesus make good friends of one another."

There's an old Michael W. Smith song about "friends" of Jesus. Take a stroll down memory lane as you listen and as you do my prayer is that you will be blessed by The Friend of All Friends, yes, Friend Jesus.

Always and Forever and Today...

Today, August 23, 2016, marks 36 years of marriage for my wife, Kim, and I. 

Times has mysteriously disappeared, yet love miraculously remains. 

The song link below is one song sung at our wedding in 1980. Yes, it's our song. 

A few weeks ago we attended a funeral for a wife who has passed of cancer and her husband had a soloist with guitar beautifully sing "our" song, because it was their song, too. It was a tender moment for Kim and me. Yep, memories, emotions, and tears. 

Let us cherish the ones we love always and forever and today.

"Be Angry..."

As humans, we are vulnerable to becoming angry. After all, life is hard. 

There is of course, a righteous anger that may feel wrong, yet is very right. For example, I get angry when the enemy deceives God's children. Makes me mad, in fact. Still, we must not burn with anger or allow madness to make us mad. 

This verse below is a guide and a prayer to help us approach and alleviate anger in our lives. These words give us permission to "be angry" but a condition is attached...

"Come to Me!" -- Jesus

"Return to Me"

This sacred crying song by Jason Upton -- written and sung from The perspective of The Prodigal Son's Loving Father -- touches my heart:
