Do you need 3 things?

Do you have a simple list of needs?  Possibly you are content with the circumstances of your life.  Perhaps you need extra hours in your day. Or you maybe you are like me and need wisdom and discernment in time management and life issues.

Reba McEntire has authored this advice.

While I smile are her quote, I know I don't need a wishbone. But I find eternal truth in memorizing God's word.  As I have meditated and memorized these words, I realize that God has generously provided everything I need. Salvation, peace,  joy, strength, family, friends, and more.
I love that the use of the pronoun us… includes all Believers.

“ His divine power has given us everything needed for life and godliness through the knowledge of him who has called us by his own glory and goodness.”
2 Peter 1:3 (NIV)

A Train Trip and Dinner

“It’s a wonderful time when you sit down around the table for dinner and discuss life. No matter where you are, it gives the semblance of normalcy to my crazy world.”
Melina Kanakaredes.

What could be more wonderful? When you enjoy a meal and discuss life with friends on a train.

Monday Musings, Presidential Politics

Why would anyone read every book written by every 2016 Presidential candidate?
Has every candidate or potential candidate even written a book? What books would be at the top of your list?

I love the idea that someone is willing to take seriously the challenge to be an informed voter.  Do most of us receive our information concerning political candidates from second hand sources such as the Internet, newspaper and television accounts? Do we listen to people with whom we disagree?

Do we invest the time and energy to read first hand accounts from individuals? Are we satisfied with sound bites on important issues?  Do we discount a whole group of people who don’t look like us? Or think like us?

On Saturday, I met a UK Professor who is thoughtfully reading books from each of the candidates.  As we waited in line, we discussed immigration. 

If you live near me, you might see him and a group of men chatting about politics at Panera.  

This is one of the books that this professor is reading.
He is a professor at the UK School of Medicine.
You might hear more about our conversation
at another time.
