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
Good morning from Beverly Hills, Florida
We’ve been in our house for just over a month and it’s beginning to feel like home. As much fun as it was traveling full time, it’s nice to be settled again and not be moving to another location today.
Today’s recap features a rather eclectic variety of posts on topics that you will find interesting and edifying. If you missed one, this is a good way to catch up.
Also, today is the online funeral service for Ed Harrell. Thursday’s post provides information on accessing that service Continue reading
Good Morning from Beverly Hills, FL
We’re gradually getting settled in our new home and enjoying the slower pace and quiet “country life” here in Citrus county.
This month I will be preaching each Sunday morning at the West Citrus Church. So, if you’re traveling through our area, please stop and worship with us.
In addition, we’ve added some meeting and preaching dates to our 2021 schedule.
Good morning from Beverly Hills, FL
As the late, great Yogi Berra once quipped, “It’s like déjà vu all over again,” as we unpack boxes and see stuff we haven’t seen for 33 months.
The other day Norma Jean questioned, “Where did THAT come from?” Continue reading
Good morning from Pompano Beach,
We’ve been blessed to enjoy sunshine and 80-degree weather here, while much of the country is suffering from cold, snow, and ice.
Tomorrow, I’m preaching at both Sunday AM services at the Northside Church. It’s been a pleasure to be with these brethren again and enjoy time with our life long friends Steve and Theresa McAllister. The real highlights of our travels in the past 33 months have not been so much the places we’ve been or the sights we’ve seen, but the new friends we’ve made, and the old friends we’ve enjoyed reconnecting with.
Monday, we’re leaving and heading back to Citrus County, where we have a very exciting week ahead. But more on that in a later post.
Good morning from chilly Homosassa, Florida.
We’re enjoying a weekend with our grandkids, Miles, and Katherine, while Kenny and April enjoy a short get-a-way.
It’s hard to believe we’re ending the first month of 2021. It’s been filled with new opportunities as well as exciting challenges. Hopefully, in the next couple of weeks, we can announce where we will once again have a permanent residence. It’s been fun being nomadic, but we need a house we can call home. Continue reading
Good morning from Temple Terrace, Florida.
We’re continuing to enjoy our time here in a very familiar place to us. It’s great seeing old friends and enjoying time with our grandchildren. Although after two very long days, including helping Roy with his online school, we’re reminded why God gave children to young people.
Tomorrow we’re looking forward to worshiping with and preaching for the brethren at the West Citrus Church in Crystal River, where Kenny and his family attend. Then on Monday, I’m speaking at my alma mater, Florida College, at their chapel devotional. Continue reading
