   Today's cherished nugget from guest blogger, Pastor Bill.
"The right temperature at home is maintained by warm hearts, not by hotheads" (Unknown).
How many times could the fires be kindled at home in a positive way if we responded to our spouse and children in the way we want them to respond to us?  Jesus gives us this good advice:  “…as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise” (Luke 6:31).
God, help me to be the man at home (and elsewhere) that my family and friends need. Amen.

Daily Nugget



   Today's cherished nugget from guest blogger, Pastor Bill.
“Very soon, all of us will be living in the electronic village hooked up to a huge computer, and we will be able to know what everybody else in the world thinks. The majority opinion will become law in that hour” (Francis August Schaeffer, 1912–1984).
I dare say we are in that hour, or very near. We see our politicians' values change daily, based on which way the winds of the polls blow. I also believe it is not necessarily the majority, but the loudest group even--if they are a minority--that moves the polls.  Don’t you long for the return of the days of integrity when you knew day in and day out what a certain man or woman stood for? 
The writer of Matthew 5:37 records these words of Jesus, words that we need to be reminded of today and remember tomorrow: “But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.”
God, thank You for being consistent and not changing because of the polls.  Amen.

Daily Nugget



   Today's cherished nugget from guest blogger, Pastor Bill.
“The presence of Christ brings us his power and ability to use our limited resources in his limitless ways” (Rebecca Manley Pippert).
Just as the small boy’s lunch was enough when he let Jesus take it, bless it, and break it (Matthew 14:13-21), when we let Him have what we have, our little is much in His hand.  Many times we see it is not our ability that God wants, but our availability.
God, my resources though limited are sufficient in Your hands. Thank You. Amen.

Jet Stream




If you want to find out about "global warming" ... just follow the jet stream, and activity on our sun. As the sun cools down, the jet stream slows down. As the jet stream slows down, it falls further away from the polar regions, thereby bringing cold arctic air toward the middle of our planet. This brings on an ice age over time. The key ... the sun and the jet stream.

  Today's cherished nugget from guest blogger, Pastor Bill.
“Youth has to do with spirit, not age. Men of seventy and eighty are often more youthful than the young” (Henry Miller).
May we catch the vision of Joshua’s strength in Joshua 14:11 that says, “As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, both to go out, and to come in.”

Even as we grow older, may our vision and vigor not decrease, but may we use our abilities to become what the Heavenly Father desires for us.
God, let me walk with you forever as in the days of my youth. Amen.

Daily Nugget



Today's cherished nugget from guest blogger, Pastor Bill.
“Worship is not about having a fantastic voice” (Temi Peters).
Many folks are afraid that their voice is not sufficient to praise God. The truth is God is worshiped by every pebble in the stream that changes the gurgle the water makes. Every tree and each leaf makes the sound of the breeze change its pitch.
Our voice also--whether whisper or robust, soprano or gravelly bass--is made just like God wanted us to be at the time of our creation.  The only shame is to remain silent and not to blend our voice with others so to create the harmony for which we were created by our Holy God.
The writer of Psalms 150:6 says, “Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord.” If you are reading this, you qualify! Do NOT waste your opportunity.
God, thank You for creating each of us uniquely and for allowing us to join the universe in worshiping You.  Amen.
Bro. Bill
