Have you ever been in a room full of people, and you knew for all practical purposes you were alone? A few times, I have traveled internationally alone. It is an interesting feeling walking down a foreign airport concourse some 5,000 miles away from anyone you know. It doesn’t really bother me. I love people, but I can also handle solitude.Continue reading “Alone in a Crowd”
Words With Action
The words that a person speaks does not really define who they are but what they do is a true indicator of who they are.
Many in our present culture are under the illusion they can change the world by posting a Tweet in 280 characters or a Facebook meme while sipping on a mocha latte. It takes a little more action than that!Continue reading “Words With Action”
Put me in a family to love
Put me in a community to serve
Put me in Your Kingdom to sacrifice
Put Your Word in my ear to hear
Put Your Word in my heart to believe
Put Your Word in my mouth to speak
Put something in my hand to give
Put compassion in my heart to heal
Put bread in my hand to share
Put me in a place to trod
Put me in Your field to work
Put me in the world to shine
Put me in the line to stand
Put me in the battle to fight
Put me in the war to win
Put me in Your altar to pray
Put me in Your heart to worship
Put me in Your hand to die

What Gets Heaven’s Attention?
People are fickle. Politicians worry about what the polls say. Internet gurus worry about clicks. Media folks look at the ratings. Churches count the heads.Continue reading “What Gets Heaven’s Attention?”
If I Could Ask God Three Questions
Going back to when I was a young man, there are three questions I would want to ask God. Perhaps they may be yours as well. God, why am I here? God, what do You want me to do? God, how can I make a difference in this world?
Today with six decades and counting, please humor this old man and give me a little latitude to answer as if God were answering the questions for you and me.Continue reading “If I Could Ask God Three Questions”
I have eaten real world eggs from foreign markets and homestead farms. They had never seen a refrigerator and they did not have a best-by-date on the tray. With unknown eggs, I usually do a water float test to check for bad eggs. With a float test, the best eggs remain on their side on the bottom, questionable eggs tip at an angle, and bad eggs float to the top.Continue reading “Rotten Eggs”
Journey Update: June 2021
To say that our world here and abroad has changed in the last year is a big understatement. Cultural attitudes and societal norms have shifted. As a Christian, I have begun to think more deeply about the implications these things will have on the church going forward. I wonder how long it will be before our American culture revs up its opposition toward Christianity bringing about open persecution. This is not a popular topic but a real possibility.Continue reading “Journey Update: June 2021”

When I think about the month of May, I think of several things. In my student days and years in education, I eagerly looked forward to the school year coming to an end. I also think of Mother’s Day which is the second Sunday in May. So happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful mothers; I pray you have a great celebration with your families. Other events in May for me is about birthdays; my birthday, Jennie’s birthday, and also Lizzy, our granddaughter’s birthday is in May. So it is an eventful month for our family.Continue reading “Journey Update: May 2021`”
Over the years I have tried to apply balance to my life and encourage it in others. I have found that those who like to view themselves as radicals do not like the concept of balance. Balance sounds like compromise to the radical. I try to be very choosy on which mountains I am willing to die on; molehills are not mountains.Continue reading “Balance”
You may be like me, your travel bags are currently gathering dust but your head and heart are looking for travel down the road.
My blog PathwayJourney.com is not a travel blog but before the dreaded Coronavirus curtailed international travel I was making about three to four international journeys per year.
On my blog site I have a menu item of “Travel Tips” on my home page that contains five separate articles ranging from “Money Concerns Abroad” to “Safe Water Abroad”.
Take a look…
Enjoy the Journey,
