Of all the interesting sea creatures God made I think I like the Giant Pacific Octopus the most. They are very intelligent and fun to interact with. Like the Wolf Eel, if they become accustomed to a diver's presence they will readily take food from your hand. They especially like Dungeness ... read more

Here is a great tip for getting started with consistent Bible reading:
Read a chapter of Proverbs for each day of the month. There are 31 chapters. If a month has fewer than 31 days read two chapters on the last day of the month. February is a special case. Plan accordingly. Wash, rinse,... read more

According to the Genesis record when God created mankind He made us very different from the rest of His creation in that we bear His image.

I can clearly see God's hand in my past guiding me all the way. That "20/20 hindsight" gives me solid confidence that the future is firmly in His hand as well.
At times the present can look fuzzy. Has that ever happened to you? Life suddenly goes out of focus and you're not exactly sure... read more

Roughly 70% of the earth's surface is covered with water. All but 3% of that is saltwater. Fresh water is my favorite beverage but I really love saltwater! I like to be on it, in it and under it.
What a wonder it is to see the things that God has hidden from casual view. There are a... read more

The next step for many folks would be to take the first step.
I wonder how many Christians are frozen in place because they still haven't taken the first step for fear of what the next step will be.
I know some folks who've spent a lot of time preparing and planning and praying. (Don't... read more

I saw a church sign promoting the Ten Commandments. Interesting. Why would a Christian church be promoting the Old Testament law?
Then I saw another and then another and as I drove on it seem that every church in that area was bill-boarding the Ten Commandments.
Often less is more and... read more

Actions come from belief. If you really believe something you will act on that belief.
James would probably tweet: "What you believe is demonstrated by what you do."
If you want to know what someone really believes look at what they do. If you want to know what you yourself really... read more

45 years ago I left my childhood religion of Mormonism and became an Atheist. 40 years ago I left the religion of atheism and began searching for the Truth.
Just as I had set aside the Mormon notion that I was on my way to becoming a god, I set aside my Atheist belief that there was no god.... read more
