Good morning from Pompano Beach
It’s been a real pleasure to spend some time here again this winter and reconnect with our good friends Steve & Theresa McAllister as well as the Northside Church and preach there both Sundays. Of course, the sunshine and 70+ degrees are not bad either.
Today’s post is a recap of the past week’s post, with its quick links, giving our readers an opportunity to catch up on any posts you have missed.
Also, today is the 49th anniversary of Roe v Wade and we’ve included a bonus post written 9 years that you will want to read. Continue reading
Good morning from Beverly Hills, FL
Well, winter weather has hit Florida. It was down to 36 degrees in Citrus county one morning this week. Brrrr! Kinda cold for Floridians and us spoiled transplants. However, it has warmed up to the 70s during the day.
But regardless of the weather where you live, these posts from ThePreachersWord will warm your heart. Continue reading
Good morning from Cobbly Nob, Tennessee.
Norma Jean and I are quickly coming to an end of our stay in the Smoky Mountains. It has been another wonderful, relaxing, and also exhilarating time enjoying God’s creation and the Fall foliage as the colors become more brilliant each day.
It has also been wonderful to be with the brethren at the Cosby Church and to enjoy time with our good friends Olie and Mary Williamson and James and Cheryll Witherington. Also, we’ve seen friends and former classmates, visiting the Smokies, who we haven’t seen in years. Continue reading
Good morning from the Great Smoky Mountains,
One of the things I wanted to do when I stepped away from “full time, located preaching,” 3 1/2 years ago was spend a couple weeks in the Fall in the mountains. Except for our honeymoon here 53 years ago, we’ve never had the time to come for more than 2-3 days at a time.
We’ve been blessed that this is 4th consecutive year to be here the last two weeks of October. But an even greater blessing is the connection we’ve made with the brethren at the Cosby church of Christ and their preacher Olie Williamson and his sweet wife, Mary. They are lovely folks. Kind. Compassionate. And just the “salt of the earth” kind of people. Continue reading
Good Morning from Beverly Hills, Florida
We enjoyed a wonderful week with the East Shelby Church in Collierville, TN. The brethren were engaged, receptive and very hospitable. If they were as edified as Norma Jean and I were, then it was definitely a mutually beneficial week.
Good Morning from Citrus County, Florida
Well, Fall has arrived in Florida. Sorta. We’re waking up to 66 degrees. With predicted temperatures “only” mid to upper 80’s. Give us another month or so, and it will be pretty sweet.
Tomorrow AM I’m teaching the adult class and preaching for the West Citrus Church, where we’re members. Wednesday night we will be at the Brooksville Church closing out their summer lecture series with the topic, “God is Love.” Then getting ready for a meeting at the East Shelby Church in Collierville, Tennesse, beginning next Sunday. So, it’s a busy week ahead. Continue reading
Good morning from Beverly Hills, Florida,
We thought we were getting a visitor tomorrow, named Fred. It appears, however, he’s going to pass by us. But we’re hearing that Grace may be forming and coming later. Yep, it’s that time of year in Florida. It’s part of the price of living in a tropical environment.
Today’s post, a recap of the past week, with quick links, allows you to catch up on any post you missed. While every post seems to resonate with someone, two especially stood out this week in terms of reader response.–When you Fall, and My Body. My Choice. Right or Wrong. If you missed them, I think you will find them encouraging and enlightening. Continue reading
Good morning from rainy Citrus County,
It has rained here all week. Every day. Locals have said they’ve never seen anything like it. Well, at least I’m saving money not watering my lawn.
However, our spirits are not dampened. As Longfellow wrote, “Into each life some rain must fall.” Both literally and figuratively. And as G. K. Chesterton opined, “When it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow.” Plus, if you’re in the rain zone, it gives you more time inside to read. Especially devotional blogs like ThePreachersWord. Continue reading
Good morning from Beverly Hills, Florida,
“Psalm 116:15 is so comforting to all those (who) have lost loved ones. Thank you for this morning’s blog,” wrote Peggy one of our regular readers. Comments like this that we receive weekly, if not daily, continue to fuel our resolve to keep this little blog going. I’m always amazed at how a particular post speaks to a reader’s situation that was unknown to me. Continue reading
Good morning from chilly Citrus County, Florida
This has been an exciting week in terms of getting settled. My office furniture arrived, so I was able to unpack my books and start working from my new office instead of the dining room table.
Two realizations soon hit me. (1) I didn’t give away enough books. (2) If you’re moving from having both a church office and a home office into just one home office, realize that it’s not all going to fit. So, we’re storing out, repacking some stuff, and storing Continue reading
