Sometimes we all wait in our own line

Faith standards

Bluesy, standards of the faith gospel was sung at DBC Sunday morning.

It has been awhile since I last heard these songs. And when they start playing, you cannot help but to join in…come on now…you all know the words.

It was definitely toe-tapping, hand-slapping-the-thigh, God-is-good, get-to-the-church-on-time gospel music.

OK, here’s my sign

As you may have noticed from an earlier-in-the-day post, I stopped at the In N Out Burger in Allen Texas for lunch today. It truly is a treat to indulge in this, a favorite fast food burger place of mine (I’ve been munching on those since the mid-80’s whenever I traveled to California and the opportunity presented itself).

I had the Double-Double (aka as the #1) today. Delicious, right?

Dang right! If I’m eating fast, I love my In N Out Burger burgers!

Thump 10/3/2010

Personal notes from a Sunday morning at Denton Bible Church:


  • Sing to the King
  • Holy is the Lord
  • Rescue
  • Take My Life and Let It Be
  • Where He Leads Me

Text Reading: Titus 3:1-11

Sermon Notes (guest preacher Mike Scheer):

  • Guilty…Argumentative…Christians are the most
  • Response to conflict: 1) overlook, 2) talk it out, 3) ask for help
  • Ask yourself: why in the working world, Christians are thought to be selfish, immature, opinionated, short on hard work – they make for a bad environment Continue reading “Thump 10/3/2010”

EIR: Communion

This is a story without the bickering of politics, rumor-izing, sharp-tongued disagreements, and doom and gloom predictions…isn’t that what Christianity is all about? I trust this will put all our daily lives into some kind of perspective, and affords an appropriate reminder of one of my favorite Bible verses and songs: This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it! (Psalm 118:24).

Email Inspiration Received (EIR) and checked out on and…my kind of story for sure despite the discrepancy between Buzz Aldrin being Presbyterian or Esipcopal – he’s a Christian regardless of the church doors he walks through!

This from an email received from my friend David S. – the pictures are from my personal photo library.

Religiously speaking

I, for one, am not well versed in the Bible’s scriptures. However, a good scripture discussion and interpretation is welcomed as long as I have my study Bible to reference. Perhaps that explains why I’ve had a Bible study class or two through my church over the last few years. As my old pastor told me many times – while sitting in a church pew, one-on-one over breakfast, and even in the passenger seat of a golf cart – religion and the Bible can really mess with your head. Perhaps Brother Bill’s point is the Bible is for all of us to take what we need from it, depending on the circumstance. I know many times I reference the Book for consolation, assurance, and inspiration. It has helped me countless times when in need, but it is used solely for my personal journey of faith and not to spread fear and condemnation. I know the Bible tells us to seek discipleship and congregate as a family in the house of the Lord. I try to do that through encouragement, patience, and as a living example – I think I am still ok in the Eyes from above. Continue reading “Religiously speaking”
