Appalachian Sound


Sound, Water, and Light are of the most powerful and profound things of this world. Anyone of these can build or destroy. And sometimes one opens the door for all so that they may dance together.

Through the sound of the words, “Let there be Light” Light was invited over the threshold to our world so that water now rested on the Earth.

Heavenly sounds played by human fingers can bring the invitation of Light deep within us so that the Father may overshadow the well of our souls with peace.

A Little Light


If you have ever read the back cover of one of my books you will notice that I describe myself as a person who likes good food. This is something I fully accredit or blame on my wife the Foodie. Because of her ability to taste the finer points of food, I now find myself noticing the quality of products more and more. The long-term effect of this is, of course as I grow older is the unwelcome extra pounds that are now part of my life.

My wife has now had the experience of being a professional chef. Her finely honed food skills over the last few years have cooked for groups well over 500 people at times. And trust me, my waistline has only benefited from Chef Kathy’s growing skills. Continue reading

The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Indians, passed on from generation to generation, says that when you discover that you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount.

In modern Church Ministries and Federal Governments, however, a whole range of far more advanced Continue reading

  A little backstory first. Continue reading

2.(often lowercase). Also, Pollyannaish. unreasonably or illogically optimistic:

Not long ago a well-known singer (Bono) commented in an interview wondering, “why so many themes found prominently in the Psalms—like hubris, rage, tears, searching—are missing in modern Christian music.” 

I saw his comment after it was posted on Facebook as well as another comment that I had to smile about that came after it that said, “Clearly he has a very narrow song list.”

How very true. Continue reading

Bad Compost


Hay   Just wanted to pass along some information that I thought some of you might find to be very helpful in your garden.

  A few years ago, my wife and I were taking classes through the University of Washington State to become certified Master Gardeners. The program had taken a major surprise in its own test garden when suddenly many things would not grow, or they just outright died. So, long story as short as I can make it, after a lot of testing they tracked it down to their homemade compost, it was contaminated. Continue reading

A Review, Not my Cup of Tea.


 

Review of the Omni hotel in Asheville N.C.
big

   We stayed for free because of my wife work as a chef she had been invited to the 2017 food show. Traveling from the low midland of South Carolina to the hill country of the Appalachians. We had been amazed by the many high-quality photos online and therefore had expected much. Sadly we both felt the urge to leave in less than an hour after checking in. It was not our cup of tea.

Longing


longingLonging is defined as;
“A strong, persistent desire or craving, especially for something unattainable or distant:”

That would be the best way to describe it. It has slipped into my soul, the very fabric of my mind. It captivates my thinking and drops by and visits me from time to time just to remind be of it’s demanding presence. What is it? Continue reading
