10 & 2

| January 11, 2014

10 & 2. That is where they say your hands should be when driving down the road. Your head should be on a swivel. You look ahead at the traffic coming towards you. You look through the rearview mirror, then the right, then the left side mirrors. When coming to an intersection, even if you […]

Veterans Day

| November 10, 2013

Tomorrow is Veterans Day. This is a day to honor all of the men and women who have spent a portion (if not all) of their lives serving this country and protecting our rights. I am extremely thankful! Friday, was a day like any other for me. I woke up, went to work then went […]

A Fortunate Guy

| April 7, 2011

Not too long ago, MawMaw, Christi’s Grandmother Shaddix was placed in the hospital. At first we thought it was going to be an in, and then out, type of stay; but we found out that it was too be much more extensive than that. A couple of weeks was her tenure there and at one […]

Football!! (4th Quarter)

| December 4, 2009

The game is coming to a close. The fourth quarter is about to start. There is a question that needs to be asked…  Are you an eligible player? To be a functional part of the team, you must be!  Having a flag thrown at this time of the game, can be detrimental to not only […]

Football!! (3rd Quarter)

| December 1, 2009

When comparing football to Christianity there are some certainties. There must be a good game plan, offense, defense and a bench with depth. There must also be a good coach(s). Another aspect of this correlation is the spectator. At some point in our spiritual life it might become necessary for us to be a spectator. […]

Football!! (2nd Quarter)

| November 27, 2009

Are you a team player? Christianity is certainly individualized, prescription but it is a team as well. There is no doubt that we are responsible for our own salvation (Philippians 2:12), but the support of our brother’s and sister’s in Christ is extremely important! How many times have we seen a great team fail (and […]

Football!! (1st Quarter)

| November 24, 2009

Football is not a game for the weak of mind or body. It is a sport that requires discipline and dedication. You might think that comparing this gruesome sport to our spiritual walk is far fetched, but I submit unto you that it is not. I hope by the time you finish reading this you […]

Are You Happy To Be Here?

| November 14, 2009

Attending the worship service should be something that we all enjoy.  There are many reasons for this.  First of all, it is our opportunity to remember the suffering that our savior went through for us. That sacrifice that was made, remembered by partaking of the supper that our Lord instituted, is the focal point of […]

Deep Impact

| November 3, 2009

We had a pond.  Actually some might would call it a lake, and there was not just one, but three. One of the things that I enjoyed doing most as a young boy was hiking through the woods of southeast Oklahoma. Usually my dogs were in tow, and we would playfully run with each other. […]
