Micah6.8 - do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with your God.

Millions of us use the Revised Common Lectionary readings each week:


There are daily readings that complement the weekly readings:


please note that M-W readings look back at last Sunday's texts, Th-Sa look ahead to the next Sunday's texts.

My Goals:
Meeting new people, encouraging others, walk @least 5 miles a week, lose 59 pounds by Mar2015, find a healthy church of disciples of Jesus and function like the family we are. Simple, eh?

My Program:
Team challenges, daily sparking, co-op w/ VA doctors, simplify my life, practical help to neighbors I meet in this life. Listen to bible audio at bedtime helps too!

Personal Information:
I love to cook and bake, but I live for BBQ. Hahaha it ain't BBQ if it ain't smoked ;-)

I fingerpick guitar, since 1973 (hero:Chet Atkins, bb king). Play piano (fav: ragtime, Edvard Grieg). Blow coronet & trombone (fav: wynton marsalis, chuck mangione) and still enjoy Earth,Wind and Fire; Pink Floyd; Stevie Ray Vaughn -- incl' Mary had a little lamb.
I also really dig Stephen Curtis Chapman, Chuck Girard and Love Song, Larry Norman, and of course Keith Green

Other Information:
"When life gives you a bunch of lemons, make orange juice and leave them wondering" -- Instagram fm my niece.

I am a broken caregiver of my disabled wife; since my stroke/drain bamage [you can smile at that, ironic THe Wink] in Dec'08.

Who says God has no sense of humor? He made me, didn't he?

    Thank you for the comment. I appreciate your writings. Praying for you to have blessings and strength for each day. we are in the mountains of West Virginia this week and there is no phone service for my old cell phone. We are paying extra for time on WiFi. Our world of technological changes only keeps up with the city growth and needs to spread out better.

    Please put our leader, 49Linda77, on your prayer list. She just found out that she has a tumor that is invading her spine. She is on route to ER right now at the WV University Hospital.

    Hi Gralan, you commented on one of my comments back in September and I'm not sure if I saw it then or responded. But I saw it today and wanted to respond. I'm still here, plugging along. Thanks for the encouragement and I hope all is well 4U.
