  • The Three Major Reasons Why Jesus Christ came

    God is a God of purpose and does nothing without a reason. Jesus was sent to earth by God for a purpose, which He started and finished. An understanding of this purpose will help you to appreciate the coming of Christ and His mission on earth. And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins." Matthew 1:21 (NKJV) Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of... continue reading...

  • UFO and ALIEN DEBUNKERS

    Alien and UFO debunkers clearly join UFO groups to closely monitor those who claim to be alien abductees and to plant seeds of ridicule. From their abject denials, to their deliberate planting of Pollyanna disinformation, about alien creatures and their sinister motives, it can initially and wrongly make one wonder, whether there is intelligent life, on Earth. Some debunkers, however, seem not to be purposeful, governmental planted cynics. When someone like THAT surfaces, one must feel sorry for them because they are so very poorly informed, and one must tell them that there is no longer room for such ignorance, (ignoring evidence) in this... continue reading...

    MIDNIGHT at the WAFFLE

    I always figured Jesus was a Waffle House kind of guy.  For some reason God seems to be partial to the use of irony. Just when we think we have the answer to complex questions, suddenly revealed is a simple answer that solves the grand riddle...but only if we choose. In a verse from the song “Rising Sun” are some words I’ve always thought clarifies well the difference between the world in pain and heavenly bliss; popular culture and reality:       One foot on the Platform     The other foot on the Train... It’s a good, ironic example of the difference between how we perceive our place in culture, and... continue reading...

  • The Origin of the U.S. Dollar Sign

    Guillermo was an exchange student at our high school during my senior year. He was from Mexico. He was a year behind me, but he was in my French class with Mrs. Litterer. He was a heck of a lot better at French than I was, could rattle off long sentences that made the girls swoon. He was also in my Creative Writing class with Miss Potzer. He spoke the language pretty well, but was awfully bad at writing creatively in English. I was good at it, so in that class, anyway, I wasn’t so intimidated and was more inclined to associate with him. I didn’t particularly like Guillermo. I didn’t think he was that good looking, but the girls sure seemed to...6 continue reading...

  • Setting the Scene: Fiction and Non-Fiction (Including Memoirs)

    Scene setting, whether that’s for fiction or non-fiction, which includes memoir, is all-important to give readers a sense of time and place as they read. And, you want to provide setting early in each scene or segment, and as you go. You can provide scene setting through narrative, as well as dialogue. And you need to provide the setting each time characters shift from one scene to another. You never want to leave readers “wandering in the dark,” with no idea where they, through the characters (or the non-fiction writer), are or should be. When you write in first person, your main character (or you as the “star of your show”) provides this... continue reading...

  • Confidence Or Arrogance

    ONCE, a psychology counselor was invited to give an interactional talk at a school to a selected class in which, majority of the students were considered brilliant and remarkable than other classes, and since they were only a bunch of elite teenagers, despite being outstanding in terms of educational knowledge , they, however, were rather snobbish in their self-confidence.  Some of them were showing disapproval and put negative remarks to the psychology counselor. " Who is this man coming to our class to lecture us ? Are we not smart enough ? Based on what that he's here to do a psychology counseling that we don't need ? "  One of the...5 continue reading...

  • Hot Enough to Spit Nails

    Dear readers, take a moment to think of anyone with an infirmity, handicapped or at times needs assistance. Have you seen the American made automobiles recently?  Remember your taxes bailed them out of trouble about six years ago! There are no more bench seats.  All are made with consoles in the middle and the gear shift is verticle. Most of the choices are high sitting “cross over” vehicles that have a high gravity level.  From my days in Physics classes, “during 1812” we were warned about being in vehicles with high centers of gravity could easily turn over.  That was a great way to keep us from sand dune riding in...1 continue reading...
