Today, too many Christians believe their lives should define the meaning of God’s word, rather than God’s word defining their lives. While too many non-Christians are trying to find loopholes in God’s word to convince Christians to accept their sin.

There was a time when a man’s word was his bond and a handshake was better than any contract. A time when men stood up for what was right and would do anything to provide for and protect his family. It was a simpler time. There was no need for the government in the middle of everyone’s life because neighbors helped neighbors and looked out for one another.

Let’s sit on the porch, share a lemonade, and remember a time when things were not so complicated.

If you only defend your principles when it is convenient…then your principles don’t mean much.

I really don’t understand all this commotion about gun control. Always assume a gun is loaded. Never give another person a loaded gun, unless you are in a gunfight.  Always maintain a good grip, point it in the right direction, and squeeze the trigger with firm and steady pressure. Control’s not hard, just follow the basics.

Once you cut a watermelon you can’t put it back together…but then, why would you want to?

How hot can the salsa be in a Mexican restaurant that plays Lionel Richie?

We all look around and see problems…the solution often is simple…stop looking and get busy.
