“Stay-At-Home” Order — Alabama Style

Our collective great-aunt, Governor Kay Ivey of Alabama just had a press conference with a “Stay-At-Home” order. Don’t you just love Aunt Kay with her South Alabama drawl; all our Southern politicians of old talked like this once upon a time, it was a requirement. I really like her, I really do. I would like to sit and have a chicken liver dinner with her, complete with potato salad, baked beans, and ice tea.

Spiritual Warfare — Stand!

I would never describe myself as a fighter. In my view, it is better to avoid trouble than to stir it up. Some of us remember “The Jerry Springer Show” that kept its ratings by conflict, and more often than not, a fist fight on stage erupted. I knew then as now, that to fight is not the best option.

John the Baptist was the forerunner of Christ.  He was sent to prepare the way for Jesus.  He jumped in his mother’s womb when Mary, pregnant with Jesus, visited his mother.  In later years on the banks of the river he declared Jesus to be the Lamb who would take away the sins of the world.  He baptized Jesus in the Jordan River and was present when the Spirit descended like a dove and remained on Jesus.  I am sure he heard the words of the Father from Heaven directed to Jesus, “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased” (Luke 3:22 NKJV).

The Baby Grew Up…

We are now finished with the Christmas season except for the packing away of tinsel and bows. During this past season as always, the true believers celebrated Christ’s birth and the secularists celebrated “Christmas”. We who hold and celebrate the Virgin Born Son—Jesus Christ could kick and scream about the commercialization of Christmas, but next year Walmart will still have their big screen TVs on sale. But I want you to know—The Baby Grew Up…

Old Shepherd of Bethlehem

Occasionally, I will do a one-man drama of a character as an illustrated message in church.  This past Sunday I portrayed one of the old shepherds who heard the angels and had seen the Baby Jesus in the stable as is depicted in Luke chapter 2.  I had not planned to record the drama but a church member recorded it on his iPhone and airdropped it to me.  SO HERE IT IS!

Thanks for watching.  Blessings to you.

Yours on the Journey,
