Good morning, “It’s not just for breakfast anymore!” This was a popular slogan promoted by the Florida Orange Growers Association. The message is clear. You’re missing out if you just think of orange juice as something to wash down your Cheerios at breakfast. It’s a refreshing, nutritious beverage anytime of day or night. What about…

Good morning: Sometimes it takes “fresh eyes” to really see and appreciate something. A few days ago one of our younger grade school students asked me, “Is there going to be some more winter?” It was Groundhog Day and while she liked winter, she apparently worried that it was nearly over. I assured her that…

Good morning: Did you have one of those arguments yesterday in which you were determined to prove you were right. Maybe it was over something embarrassingly trivial, like what year did the Beatles break up as a band? It doesn’t make any real difference in anything, and yet you were going to get the satisfaction…

Good morning: What comes to mind when you hear the word “repent”? Years ago there was an individual who had a prime seat for seemingly every major sporting event. He positioned himself so that he was always in the background of the TV shots, and he always held up a large sign with the one…

Good morning: Why is it that you can be totally exhausted at the end of a busy workday or a long week of dealing with life’s little crises, and yet still find plenty of energy to spend hours with a favorite hobby or to tackle a major home renovation project? It’s the difference between “have…

Good morning: At the beginning of King Solomon’s reign, the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Ask for whatever you wish.” Solomon requested the wisdom needed to faithfully rule God’s people. God granted him unmatched wisdom along with many other blessings. It’s just one example of how God loves to give lavish…

Good morning: Along with other Midwestern states, Wisconsin has been called a “flyover state.” Some people have the perception that all the exciting and worthwhile events take place on either coast, and that there is no reason to spend any time in the places that lie between, the “flyover” states. It’s not true, but if…

Good morning: Weekday mornings I’m in the habit of watching the TV news with breakfast. There are the usual segments updating the number of COVID cases around the country. I can count on hearing the latest political rumors from Washington, along with reports on the new storms developing over the Rockies and the danger they…

Good morning: “Doesn’t God want me to be happy?” asked someone struggling with a problem which didn’t have a quick or easy solution.
