January 17 – Listening without expectation

2:17 – Listening without expectation #faithbites #faithjourney expectation As people, we communicate all the time. We talk to be heard. We talk to share information, build consensus, nurture ideas, fight, debate, and more. Sometimes though, we just need someone to listen to us without wanting or needing them to take action.

January 8 – Walls Divide. Love Multiplies

2:8 – Walls Divide. Love Multiplies #faithbites #faithjourney walls “Build the Wall”. “We Don’t Need A Wall”. These are refrains we hear more and more everyday.

December 31 – I resolve to… Grow and Live My Faith Always

365 – I resolve to… Grow and Live My Faith Always #faithbites #faithjourney grow Forward Before we get started, you may be wondering why no celebration for 1 year of #faithbites and for my completing my goal of a scripture a day for a whole year.

December 20 – Trust But Verify (Part II)

December 20 – Trust But Verify (Part II)

354 – Trust But Verify (Part II) #faithbites #faithjourney Verify You might remember that back in September I wrote a #faithbite entitled Trust But Verify. That message was about not bearing false witness and listening to find the truth when someone is accused of something. Today, I use the same title but for a different type of verification.

342 – Old School is Sometimes the Best School #faithbites #faithjourney School Today was my eldest’s birthday.  She wanted a Wreck-It-Ralph themed party, so where else should we hold it but at a retro arcade. This place had all the old video games that we grew up on and cost $0.25 to $0.50 a game. This reminded me of growing […]

334 – How Are You today? Crappy. Thanks for Asking #faithbites #faithjourney Crappy I’ve had a rough day this morning between lack of sleep, stress, and anxiety. A person asked me how I was doing today. My first thought was to tell him how I was feeling, but instead, I said “Just Peachy” or something like that. I didn’t tell him […]

November 24 – Are You Looking For A New Home?

328 – Are You Looking For A New Home? #faithbites #faithjourney Home For the past 17 years, we have not really had backyard neighbors. There was a shed directly behind our house, then the neighbor’s house was off to the side. In the past week, they started constructing what looks like a very large (and I mean very large) garage […]
