"We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair." 2 Corinth. 4:8Do you worry? It's okay to admit it. Nobody else is around. You don't have to impress any other Christians with your faith. Okay, I thought so. As human beings we worry. It comes from having a peculiarity of vision. We can see where we are, and we can see where we've been, but we can't see ahead. Imagine being on a dark road at night and having to drive your car backwards down that road with only the dim tail lights lighting the way in front of you and the headlights brightening... Read More
"Now it happened, as He went into the house of one of the rulers of the Pharisees to eat bread on the Sabbath, that they watched Him closely" Luke 14:1Jesus never had a moment's peace. Everyone was watching Him. From the day He walked into the Jordan River to be baptized He took on celebrity status. The first year was wonderful. Everyone loved Him. The second was more trying. The third -- well let's say it would have driven a mortal man insane!The people watched Him because He did exiting things -- and maybe, just maybe it would happen to them. People haven't changed much. We still like... Read More
Excuses, excuses, everybody has excuses. Way back in the dark ages, when I was a boy, excuses for not having homework done ranged from "the dog ate it" to "I finished my work but it dropped out of my notebook into a mud puddle on the way to school." Solomon tells us that the sluggard or lazy man always has an excuse. Solomon's example is that there is a lion outside and it might eat the sluggard. Indeed there were lions roaming Israel at the time of Solomon, but not in the streets of Jerusalem! Note that the sluggard is afraid he will be killed in the streets, not in the forest! It seems that... Read More
About a month ago my five year old daughter said to me, “Daddy is Mickey real?”
She was referring to the one and only Mickey Mouse. She went on to say, “Laura at school said Mickey isn’t real?”
I said, “What do you think?”
She said, “I think he’s real. He’s magical. But I don’t think Goofy or Donald or any of those other characters are real.”
I said, “Why?”
She said, “Because they don’t have tongues. They can’t eat without a tongue. But Mickey has a tongue. I think he’s real.”
I smiled inwardly. Seemed like pretty solid reasoning to me!
Then... Read More
"Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: "Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?" Then I said, "Here am I! Send me." Isaiah. 6:8I received a call the other day! It went something like this: "Mr. Lilley, this is your dentist's office. We just want to remind you of your appointment at 10:00 AM tomorrow." I knew it was a call because my phone rang. I know it was from my dentist's office because I knew I had an appointment for a check up tomorrow. Besides that, the dentist's phone number and name appeared on my caller ID. There was no doubt that at 10:00 AM tomorrow I must be sitting in... Read More
When I was a child, my parents were my heroes. As a teenager, I often viewed them as adversaries. As I became an adult, they became more like great friends. Once that happened, I learned more about who my parents really are and were before my sister and I popped into the picture. And, I came to realize--as I think most of us do--that they are, well, kind of awesome. Blogger Eliot Glazer had the same realization. In fact, he not only realized his parents were awesome, but that all of our parents were awesome too. To celebrate this fact, Glazer has created a photoblog called My Parents Were Awesome....

With the economy in shambles, many parents are struggling to find a way to create that magical Christmas for their children. I myself was facing this same dilemma, trying to conjure up ways to put on my "mommy" face and not let them know that this year Santa was broke. While looking over the abundance of toys they have acquired over the years, I was struck with an idea... an idea that is so anti-modern Christmas that it just may work! Substituting presents with memories! What?! How can someone pull that off? It's actually easier than I thought, and here is how:
Step One: Assess your... Read More
