The “Good Old Days”

The older you get, the more the world changes from those times when life seemed simpler and troubles appeared few. For each of us, there are the” good old days.”

Remember them…walk in them each chance you get…in those back roads of your mind. They were the best of days…the fondest days…they were the “Good Old Days.”

Goodbye to the Personal Touch

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThere was a time when someone would call or write a letter to you and the sound of their voice or the fact that they had touched the paper and envelope gave with the message, a personal touch. Today, the sense of personal touch is disappearing.

Mechanics and machines are removing the personal touch from our communications. The sound of the human voice is no longer heard in a text. The personal effect is missing in an email. We are trading the personal touch for mechanical coldness.

The choice is yours. Technology is good and useful to a point and then it becomes counter-productive. Why trade the soft warm personal touch for a cold ridged impersonal experience.

Sharing the Weak Moments

The believer’s walk is not an easy path. There are rocks in the way, briars and overgrowth that all but choke out the hope that is within. Many faithful are victimized by challenges and the voice of the enemy every day.

Weakness can happen all of a sudden, without warning, and swirl you like the water near the opening of a drain. Who will share such a moment, such a faithless event? The pretense of strength prevents us from sharing the moments when we are overcome with a sense of weakness. We think, rather, that others will be helped and motivated if we share our strengths and victories.

Unfortunately, just the opposite may and does take place. Many are further discouraged by success stories because they use it as a measuring device and find that they do not measure up because they have fallen again. They become more isolated in their sense of failure. Little do they realize that behind someone’s stories of victories are the stories of weakness and failure.

It is these stories of weakness and failure that many believers need to hear. It is these stories that will encourage the greater number because they will then know what they are experiencing is a very normal and necessary part of the believer’s walk. They will know that what the world calls failure is a blessing for the believer. They will know that their strengths lie in their weaknesses.

“My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9

You are Unique

We can be influenced by someone else’s experience if it is different from our own. The tendency to compare ourselves to another is strong within our nature. The grass on the other side of the fence always appears greener, the presence greater.

How long will we choose not to see that each one is uniquely different? As no two snowflakes are the same, we are unique, one from another. Though the snowflakes gather together and seem to lose their identity, nothing has changed. Within the whole, they are unique and necessary.

The next time you have an opportunity to watch a snowflake on your windowpane, may you hear its message to you saying, “Look at me and see your uniqueness. Like me, you are the only “You” there is. Remember, God don’t make mistakes.

Faith, Hope and Love

By Faith, there is believing beyond belief.


In Hope, there are dreams beyond my thoughts.


With Love, there is acceptance beyond reason.
