Time Flies!

Have you ever heard the old saying, “Time Flies?”

You know, when I was a young boy and teenager it seemed like it took Christmas forever to get here. Now, it seems as soon as one Christmas comes the other one is upon us.

I don’t know why but when you get older time flies! Robin and I was in Muskogee, OK visiting Joel, Cherise, Elly and Jax after Christmas. When we got there it was pouring down rain and their roof developed a leak in one of the bedrooms.

Joel’s dad whose name is Tony came over with a tarp and some weights to cover the leak. While we stood of the roof we started talking about how time flies. I said, “Tony, it won’t be long before our bodies are in the grave and our souls will be with the Lord in heaven.” We talked about the past and some of the mistakes we had made. Oh, how

I wish I could turn back the clock and not say and do some of the things I did!

Psalms 90:12, “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts to wisdom.” Wisdom is the Lord Jesus Christ!

Young people, let me encourage you to walk with Him daily and hopefully you’ll not make some of the stupid mistakes I did!

Hey, It’s Not So Bad Getting Old!

I was talking with a young man a few days ago about getting older. I told him there were verses in the Bible that describes how our bodies would become as we got old, but I couldn’t remember where it was located. Well, this morning I found it while I was having my Quite Time!

Eccl. 12:3, In the day when the keepers of the house (this is your arms and hands) tremble, and the strong men (the feet and the knees become weak) bow themselves, and the grinders (you lose some of your teeth) cease because they are few, and those who look out of the windows (your eyes go bad] are darkened.

The only thing it didn’t mention is losing your hair, but only of few of us do that. LOL

I’m 61 and I think I’m a pretty healthy individual. I work out 5 to 6 days a week. I can still lift quite a bit of weight and I don’t have bad feet and knees. I have lost some teeth with the help of some dentist in the past and I do have to wear glasses.

I guess I’m trying to convince myself I’m not in that bad of shape for a guy my age, but, it’s coming my friends.

The upside is this if you’re a Christian. The older you get the closer you get to seeing Jesus and that’s a PLUS!

Hey, when you think of it that way, getting old isn’t so bad after all!

What’s Right Is Wrong, And What’s Wrong Is Right!

I’m really enjoying the Book of Ecclesiastes. It says in Eccl. that folly is set in great dignity. That means a dignity has been given to sin.

Back in the day if a person got drunk and ran off the road and they had to call someone to pull them out, it was an embarrassment.

Now a days it’s called a disease!

Back in the day young people tried to hide smoking dope.

Now a days it’s legal in some states.

Back in the day when a young girl got pregnant it was an embarrassment, especially to her mom and day.

Now a days it’s called a mistake!

Look at the rioting on TV. They riot because they say a young man has been killed by a police officer. I assume it’s OK to have a peaceful riot, but does that mean it gives you the right to break into businesses and steal?

What God calls wrong our society is calling right! There’s something wrong with this picture my friends!

Good Morning America!

Good Morning America! It’s Thursday, January 7th, 2016.

What excuses did you make this morning for not getting up and spending time alone with the Lord?

Remember, the one who created you and gives you air to breath throughout the day has a desire to spend time alone with ya!

Here, there, or in the air!
