December 27 – I resolve to…finish

361 – I resolve to…finish #faithbites #faithjourney finish Yesterday, we started the resolve series here at #faithbites with a resolution to work on anger. Today, we continue with looking at finishing what you start. For you Disney fans, you may remember the dog in Up. He was easily distracted by SQUIRREL. I am that dog. I find things that are […]

December 24 – Hark The Grandpa Harold Sing or What is Impact?

358 – Hark the Grandpa Harold Sing or What is Impact? #faithbites #faithjourney harold Tonight during our Christmas Eve service, I was helping the young ones get ready for the live nativity scene. Right before we went on, the congregation, sang a few Christmas carols with one being Hark the Herald Angel Sings. That song was always one of my […]

December 9 – Don’t Follow Me. I’m a Hypocrite

December 9 – Don’t Follow Me. I’m a Hypocrite

343 – Don’t Follow Me. I’m a Hypocrite #faithbites #faithjourney hypocrite I often say that I am wrong. Heck, most times I feel more wrong that right, but I digress. I use to think the saying “Do as I say, not as I do” was hypocritical. Now, I know it is. But the thing is, we are hypocrites. We do […]

November 29 – God is Pretty Incredible

333 – God is Pretty Incredible #faithbites #faithjourney incredible Some days the ideas for #faithbites just come to me while other days it’s a bit harder. Today’s #faithbite comes from my eldest.

November 27 – Are You A Misfit?

331 – Are You A Misfit? #faithbites #faithjourney misfit Tonight, as part of our annual tradition, my family sat down to watch Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

324 – Vaccinated by Christ #faithbites #faithjourney Vaccinated Before we get started, I’m going to ask for a little leeway here. I’m going to use an imperfect metaphor, but I think it works. So bear with me 🙂 And now, onto faithbites. Yesterday my youngest got her flu vaccine. Today, I had my oldest vaccinated against the flu. They were […]

319 – Responsibility for Your Actions – Good and Bad #faithbites #faithjourney responsibility About two to three inches of pearly white snow covered central Illinois this morning. It is beautiful unless you have to travel, shovel, or go anywhere. A perfect day to stay home, sit by the fire, drink hot chocolate, and rest. But alas, this was not in the […]

November 10 – Let It Go For Peace

November 10 – Let It Go For Peace

314 – Let It Go For Peace #faithbites #faithjourney peace I don’t know about you, but I tend to be an easy going guy. I try to love people and help where I can. But sometimes, people do stupid things (in my opinion)) and it just sticks in my craw. They say something or do something or dress differently or a […]

October 23 – The Human Connection

October 23 – The Human Connection

296 – The Human Connection #faithbites #faithjourney connection We are busy people running from meeting to meeting, task to task, social media feed to social media feed. We are always on the go, usually at the expense of that human touch and connection. Today, I had the opportunity for touch and for talk, with friends. I was able to give […]
