Yachts from the Air — Focused Moments

Earlier this month, the annual Round the Island yacht race took place. 1,533 boats set off from Cowes to circumnavigate the Isle of Wight. It’s a spectacular sight, literally a sea of sails. Rather excitingly, I had the opportunity to … Continue reading

When You Thought I Wasn’t Looking…

Looking around…

Morning Story and Dilbert

Morning Story and Dilbert Vintage Dilbert
July 29, 2000

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you hang my first painting on the fridge,
and I immediately wanted to paint another one…

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you feed a stray cat and I learned that it was good to be
kind to animals…

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you make my favorite cake for me and I learned that the
little things can be the special things in life…

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I heard you say a prayer and I knew there was a God I could
always talk to and I learned to trust in God…

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you make a meal and take it to a friend who was sick
and I learned that we all have to help take care of each other…

When…

The historical Jesus

A good read…

The Isaiah 53:5 Project

The Historical Jesus

By:  David Capes, Ph.D.

What do historical documents other than the Bible tell us about Jesus?

The past actually happened but history is only what someone wrote down.A. Whitney Brown

Most of what we know about Jesus comes from Christian writings. This should be no surprise, since it was Christians who were most interested in telling his story and preserving his memory. But how do these Christian writings compare with what other historians were saying about Jesus at the time?

Scholars have been engaged in what’s been called the “quest for the historical Jesus” since the late 1700s. Yet many of us still want to know if there is credible historical evidence that corroborates what the Bible says about Jesus.

So how does the Christ of the Christian faith square with the Jesus of history?

Never Give Up!

Be strong and courageous.

Karina's Thought

NEVER GIVE UP - Karina's Thought

There are so many things that could inspire me to write something. My post this evening inspired by a true story of a pedestrian named Edward Payson Weston. He did several trips by walk in the several years and the longest traveling he did was in 1909. At the age of 70, he was walking along the 4000 miles from New York to San Francisco in a hundred days. It was a very remarkable achievement! A feat that may not be able rivaled by us who younger than him and of course it was a hard adventure! I strongly believe Weston experienced so many hard problems during his trip. In an interview he said: “There are times when my legs felt very sick. I almost gave up and stop this trip. The biggest problem that almost made me give up not feeling tired, not too very long distances up…
