Good morning: “You don’t know what you have until it’s gone.” That expression is a sad commentary on human nature. It’s so easy to take God’s blessings for granted or even complain about them, rather than thank Him for His undeserved love.  When was the last time you thanked God for our nation? The Bible…

Good morning: I think all of us at one time or another, and likely many more than just one time, have said, “I don’t understand why God…” It’s usually prompted by something like a natural disaster which sweeps away homes and leaves survivors traumatized. It might be something more personal: disappointment over a prayer not…

Good morning: The median sale price of a home in Milwaukee is $211,000. Obviously, before spending that kind of money, you want to be sure that the house is solid and will provide protection from the elements for years to come. The most critical component is the foundation. If the house isn’t built on something…

Good morning, There are two ways of approaching today with all of its plans, activities, responsibilities, challenges, and joys. Either be “conformed” or “transformed.” Paul writes in Romans 12:2, “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to…

Good morning: Any plans for the long holiday weekend? I’ve wondered what it would be like to take to the road or head to the airport on the spur of the moment for a spontaneous getaway to an unplanned destination. It could be an exciting adventure. Who knows where you might end up. Travel sites…

Life is good. Then suddenly everything turns upside down. Life looks very bleak and the tears flow. The questions come….

Good morning: We finally had our first taste of spring rhubarb a few days ago. I didn’t realize how much I missed the sweet/tart tang until I took a bite of the rhubarb crisp fresh from the oven. After that first bite, I was even more eager for the next and the next and, oh,…

Good morning: Remember learning to ride a bicycle? Did it seem like an impossible skill to master? Do you recall the sense of accomplishment when you finally made it all the way down the block without falling or having to take your feet off the pedals? “I did it!” you told yourself. What gave you…

Good morning: Noisy chaos fills the classroom until the door opens and the teacher walks in. A courtroom is a buzz of conversation until the judge takes his seat on the bench. Authority has a way of quieting extraneous noise and commanding silent attention. There is no higher authority than the Lord who sacrificed Himself…

Good morning: You notice clouds gradually building in the western sky. As the afternoon hours go by, they grow darker and more ominous. The wind picks up and you brace for what comes next.
