Good morning from Temple Terrace, Florida,
We’re here for the month of January. Enjoying time with our daughter and our grandkids. Seeing old friends. And looking forward to speaking in chapel at my Alma Mater, Florida College on January 25th.
This week’s recap features two posts that speak to the civil unrest we’ve experienced and the Christian’s response and attitude toward it. Also, there’s a post from 2016 that is relevant to the divided state of our country.
Good morning from Temple Terrace, Florida,
It’s a bit cool here in the pre-dawn hours at 54 degrees, with a predicted drop to 48 and highs today only in the ’50s. So, winter can be a bit tough here in Florida sometimes!
We’re enjoying time with our grandchildren, working on finding a house we can call home, and counting our many blessings. In addition, we have an opportunity to see many of our friends from bygone days. Continue reading
Good morning from sunny Florida
We begin 2021 in a very familiar place to us–Temple Terrace. It’s where Norma Jean and I met in 1967 when I was a student at Florida College. We are spending the month of January here as we finalize plans to secure a home for a permanent resident, which we will be announcing later.
We will be returning to Citrus county tomorrow where I’m preaching for the West Citrus church as well as on January 24th and 31st. So, I have two openings this month, if any church in the area needs a guest speaker. Continue reading

Good morning from Homosassa, Florida,
We’re spending most of December here on Florida’s Nature Coast, close to Kenny’s family.
You never know what kind of wildlife you’re going to see here, either on land or water. Yesterday, we looked out from our back porch and saw a pod of Dolphins swimming by our house. There must have been 20-25. They were frolicking in the water, having a good time. And so were we just watching them.
Today’s recap will help you catch up with links to any posts you may have missed this week. Also, it includes two posts on the topic of Christians wearing masks. Plus a bonus post. Continue reading
Good morning from sunny Florida,
This is our final weekend at Indian Shores before moving up to Homosassa for the remainder of December. That will put us close to Kenny’s family and where we will enjoy being together for Christmas.
Also, I’ve been asked to preach for the West Citrus Church on December 13 and 20. It’s always a pleasure to return and worship with these brethren. Continue reading
Good morning from Indian Shores Beach,
For the third consecutive year during this adventure, Norma Jean and I are enjoying an extended stay at the beach. Along with some preaching opportunities and our daily writing, it affords some relaxing time to appreciate the beauty of nature and enjoy God’s blessings. Additionally, it’s an excellent time to plan for next year’s activities, to the extent we’re able to do so. Continue reading
Good morning from Indian Shores Beach, Florida,
Except for tropical storm Eta, which for us was very minor, we’ve been enjoying warm weather in the ’80s, gorgeous sunsets, and delicious seafood for the week.
This afternoon we’re driving over to Orlando where I’m preaching tomorrow for the Palm Springs Dr. Church in Altamonte Springs. It’s been several years since we’ve been there, so we’re looking forward to being with these brethren again. Monday, I’m speaking at Florida College for their daily devotional period. On the 29th I will be preaching for the Skyview Church in Pinellas Park. So, in addition to writing, we’re enjoying some ministry opportunities. Continue reading
Good morning from Homosassa, Florida
After 4 gospel meetings in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Indiana, plus two other preaching appointments, we’re back in Florida for the winter, Lord willing.
