Recently over dinner my father and my Aunt reminisced about their experience taking cod liver oil pills and polio vaccines via sugar cubes when they were in elementary school.  Due to the cultural setting, every student no matter what their condition was blessed with these uniform health treatment plans.  We laughed at the story of a fellow student who would covertly spit out their cod liver oil pill and deposit in the innermost recesses of his desk to avoid some of the trauma of the experience. 

The Coming Day of the Lord 7/20

The other day my daughter and I were riding home from a dentist appointment.  My mind was mulling over some distant thought as we waited for the light to switch.  As we pulled away from the stop light we heard a massive train horn sound!  It was one of those sounds that immediately grabs your attention and and pulls you into high alert.  We were not anywhere near railroad tracks!  Another car had pulled an illegal turn directly in front of a lifted heavy duty pickup.  The driver took full advantage of his aftermarket train horn to get the delinquent driver’s attention and let him know his opinion.  The world of our day is living as if life as they know it will continue uninterrupted forever.

Father’s Day! / River Reach News 6/15

A few weeks ago the world marveled at the daring rescue of young child dangling from a fourth floor balcony in Paris.  The toddler seemed ready plunge at any moment to certain death.  Many stopped and cried out for help.  Others pulled out their phones and began recording.  One 22 year old man courageously jumped out of his car and daringly scaled the exterior of the building pulling the young child to safety.  Praise God for the courage and love of that man!  Whether we realize it or not, every child is dangling precariously over the pit of impending destruction! (Genesis 6:13, 17; Matthew 7:13)
