Time for Oil Check

Lately, have you checked to see if
your soul's lamp is filled with (spiritual) oil?

Food for Thought:
Lampante oil as it was called in Biblical times was not used for consumption but as fuel for oil-burning lamps. From this ritual of anointing, the expected savior of the Jews was called the Messiah "anointed one". Olive oil in contemporary religious use also has religious symbolism related to healing and strength and to consecration, God setting a person or place apart for a special work.

Preston (our house guest for two weeks)

What a wonderful time we had with Alisha, Todd, Preston, Regan and Justin at White Oaks Resort at the California-Oregon border. My only complaint - our time together was too short!

Northern California Coast

So much splendor along the Northern California Coast from Bodega Bay to the Oregon/California border. The Lord definitely fashioned places of extreme serenity and beauty. The highlight of our journey was spending time with our daughter Alisha and her family (hope to have pictures posted tomorrow).

I just happen to be more capable

Run Aground?

When you temporarily run aground, remember that there are no failures in life. There are only results. Consider the adage: Success is the result of good judgment, good judgment is the result of experience, and experience is often the result of bad judgment! - A.Robbins

Inner Peace's Resting Place

Peacefulness is an inner sense of calm. It comes from becoming still, and allows us to reflect and meditate on our inner being.

It's Camp Meeting

August 2 -6
Meeting Time
in Santa Maria

I like the old time preaching, praying, singing, shouting,
I like the old time reading of God's Word,
I like to hear those old time, Hallelujah, glory,
I like the old time worship of the Lord.

** Will be missing in action until Saturday **
