Flowers Popping Up!

South Carolina is abloom with some early bulbs popping up. Spring is knocking early after a bitterly cold spell with some surprise snow and ice..

..and I am slowly springing up as I heal from surgery.

I had over 1/2 of my left lung removed exactly three weeks ago. It was extremely painful and I had some nightmare experiences from the healing and drugs.

God is good though!

The surgeon removed what was the largest of three neuroendocrine tumors I was found to have. These are quite rare,  but have recently been in the news as Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computers had to take sick leave for the same diagnosis.

I remember a childhood friend of mine died in about 1959 from a a very rare brain tumor. He was my neighbor and I had trouble understanding cancer and how it could snuff out the life of a boy my age.

Now at age 60, I have quite a long list of friends, co-workers, and family members who have been victims to cancer’s often evil outcome.

I believe God has further plans for me. Maybe as a reader-responder to this blog, you may have some influence on what my future holds.


GALATIANS 3:5  Does God give you the Spirit and work miracles among you because you follow the law? No, he does these things because you heard the Good News and believed it.


something remarkable.

Good Morning …
As I sit here reflecting on the last few months, it would be so cliche-like to say some of the words rolling through my mind.

If you are close to my age, you may remember the Christian-country-comedian Jerry Clower who hailed from Yazoo, Mississippi. I am re-reading his 1975 book, Ain’t God Good.

I know God has plans and prosperity around the corner for me.
I say, chickens scratch and eat in the same spot, then crow about it.
Jerry Clower in his book said, “The Lord is not interested in ,what you used to do but what you’re going to do from today on. And I’m waiting to get it on.”

It is no secret what God can do.
What will you do today that may be better than what you do tomorrow?
I just texted my grandsons and told them to do something remarkable today.
Paul said in 2 Thessalonians 3:4-5
“The Lord makes us feel sure that you are doing and will continue to do the things we told you.”

May the Lord lead your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s patience.

Do something remarkable today!
