April 18 – A Cat Making a Sandwich

April 18 – A Cat Making a Sandwich

#108of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney #MakeMeASandwhich Today’s lesson is about a cat making a sandwich. You might be wondering, why is Sol talking about a cat making a sandwich? Can a cat make a sandwich? Does the cat take requests? How do I train my cat to make a sandwich? Sorry to burst your bubble, but I don’t have a cat who can make a sandwich. I don’t even have a cat. This metaphor came to me from a friend many years…

April 17 – Theft of Security

April 17 – Theft of Security

#107of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney Today’s lesson is on the after effects of theft and how we can deal with it. Theft comes in many forms. Physical as in a stolen item. Security as in someone breaking into your home. Emotion as in someone breaking your heart or your innocence. Spiritual when your belief system is torn down by false profits. All of these hurt the soul as many hurt the pocketbook. Last night, after a long day at work, I came…

April 2 – The Little Green Monster

April 2 – The Little Green Monster

#92of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney #Envy Today’s lesson is about the little green monster. No not Mike from Monsters, Inc but jealousy and envy. I was at home thinking of the good deeds someone did for a family member and as was jealous. I thought they are only doing it look better. They only want the recognition from that person. They are sucking up. Then I saw the same thing at work. I was looking at how people were interacting with each…

April 1 – Children in Church

April 1 – Children in Church

#91of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney #Parenting #AprilFools #Easter Today’s lesson in about children in church or more specifically children making a ruckus in worship. Today our family gathered together to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ.  While we weren’t in our home church, we were together as a family. While we were celebrating the resurrection, I think the devil was trying to get into one of my children. Crying, talking, getting up, rocking like a baby, I have to go…

March 20: Choosing Our leaders

March 20: Choosing Our leaders

#78of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney Today’s lesson is on voting and election. In Illinois, it is primary election day. The chance to select your parties nominees and vote on any referenda that may be on the ballot. I voted first thing with my daughter, who was happy to see my name on the ballot. Nothing major, just serving as a precinct committeeman. She loves voting with me. When many of us think of voting, we think of failed leadership and nonstop negative ads. We…

March 13 – Only so much energy

March 13 – Only so much energy

Today’s lesson is about having only so much energy to do the things you need to do. Today, I am tired and grumpy. I don’t know who created the evil that is Daylight Saving Times, but with two young kids and a busy work schedule, it’s left me exhausted. When you take that and add to it the normal things about humanity that can tick us off, it’s been a bit rough. At the same time, today has been great,…

February 20 – I Appreciate You

February 20 – I Appreciate You

Today’s lesson is about appreciation and those little acts that make it all worth it. Anyone who knows me, knows I don’t always have the right words, but I  try to have the right intent. This weekend was no exception. I was talking to an African-American man on Saturday about the Black Panther movie. How I enjoyed it and how then I said forgive me if I use the wrong words, the directors made a good superhero movie that happened…

February 7 – The Others

February 7 – The Others

Today’s lesson is about how we treat others. Many of you know I love science fiction. I was watching a Phillip K Dick’s Electric Dreams episode entitled (K.A.O) or Kill All Others. It was set in the future where there is only one candidate for public office and the candidate started to say Kill All Others. The question of who “the others” were kept coming up. Of course, if you were an other, you would know. Or would you?  I hear…

January 16 – Loss

January 16 – Loss

Todays Bible Lesson is one on loss. Death sucks. On one hand, it is a homecoming. You get to be one with the Lord. His promises of redemption and everlasting life are fulfilled. At the same time, there is emptiness, loss, and loneliness. I learned today of that my grandmother, Nancy Cammarano, passed late last night. She is not in pain and she is at peace. I am torn on many levels. I am saddened by her loss. Sad for my…
