Looking over the tops of the trees to the Mantiqueira Mountains (not in photo).

  1. Is it wrong to speak of sharing the gospel with someone? Paul didn’t think so, 1 Thes 2.8. (Most versions translate metadidōmi as “share.”)

  2. With God’s acceptance, we can face all our warts and shortcomings and work by his power to perfect holiness.

  3. One writer says we can only “try” to be Christians. Point that it’s a process is well taken, but that doesn’t mean we are less than saints, less than God’s holy people.

  4. I often pray that God will give us growth in all areas: numbers, spirit, good works, generosity, love, in knowledge and certainty of truth. What am I missing?

  5. Every night, before laying your head upon your pillow, zero out all anger, irritation, resentment, and bitterness. You’ll rest well and rise refreshed.

  6. A verse of mine: My view, beyond my desk, of light and palm, / Refreshes the mind and brings the spirit calm.


7. A Bible verse: “For this reason Christ died and returned to life, so that he may be the Lord of both the dead and the living” Romans 14.9.

Doesn’t seem so long ago …

This was in front of their house. Had quite the conversation about “chillin'” on a social media site with a friend or two.

Here are some first images of the outside of my home office in the back yard. We closed in the back porch, removed the door from a bedroom on to the porch, and will use the bedroom and porch area for the home office. Still work to do, but it’s getting there.

Here are some photos of my home office taken several days ago. Still need shelving. Photos of the outside to follow.
