Praise the King

Are you familiar with Honor Flights? An Honor Flight is an opportunity for veterans of the United States Military to fly to Washington D.C. and visit the different memorials, especially the memorial of the war in which they fought. These Honor Flights began in 2005 shortly after the completion of the National World War II Memorial. They wanted to give veterans of World War II, who might not ever have the chance themselves, the opportunity to visit and see the memorial that was built to honor...

See Him Mocked

Professional wrestling hosted its Wrestlemania event this past weekend, and the fans got some unexpected entertainment. Bret Hart is a former professional wrestler. He’s 61 years old and was standing on the stage, giving a speech, when 26-year-old Zachary Madsen from Lincoln, Nebraska got past security, ran onto the stage, and tackled him. Within seconds, an intimidating collection of very strong men and women grabbed this guy and pulled him into the corner. When the crowd realized what...

Press On!

New Berlin, Wisconsin, was in the news last week. You heard the reason, right? The winning power-ball lottery ticket was sold at a Speedway gas station in New Berlin. The $768 million prize (the third largest lottery jackpot ever in America and Wisconsin’s largest) makes those baseball and football players’ contracts look like minimum wage! So someone in Wisconsin won that lottery and they are probably meeting with lawyers, accountants, and communications specialists this very...

See Him Disowned

What changed? Jesus had asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”(Matthew 16:13-16) Peter said that. After many people stopped following him, Jesus turned to the twelve and asked them, “You don’t want to leave too, do you?” “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God.”(John 6:66-69) Peter...

What Are You Looking to Find in Life?

Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night and discovered that someone was staring at you? That can be a pretty freaky feeling. Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night and discovered that something was staring at you? And if so, has it ever been a 2-foot long creature that looks like a cross between monkey and a raccoon? If so, then you have something in common with a 99-year old woman in Florida. One night, she woke up and saw an animal called a kinkajou staring at her and...

See Him Arrested

It was meant to be a nice, fun trip to the mall. In fact, we were going to “Build A Bear” with four little girls. We could always use four more stuffed animals, right? Cute stuffed bears, with fun articles of clothing, made right as you watch. That is nothing but cute! But cute turned into ugly. We didn’t see the police officers at first. Actually, it was what we heard. Screams from a young woman, and all the naughty words that parents don’t really anticipate their...

Keep Going in the Hands of the "I AM"

You might know that Wisconsin isn’t the only place that experienced major flooding this past week. Our friends in Nebraska and Iowa got hit pretty hard as well. For example, Nebraska now has an island called Fremont. Fremont wasn’t an island before last week. But now it is. And people have needed rescuing. One family called 911 after their basement wall had collapsed. The river was pouring into their house, and 60 mph winds were causing the water to quickly swirl all around them. So...

See Him Pray

Do you have a safehouse? Now, I’m not asking if you consider your house, your home where you and your family live, to be safe. No, this has nothing to do with living in a low-crime community, having a security system, neighbors you trust, or doors with secure and working locks. I’m also not referring to a home full of love and peace. Though having a home where people feel both physically and emotionally safe is so valuable, that’s not what I mean when I say...

Keep Going With Confidence

If only they would have known. If only they would have known, they could have avoided the problem all together. If only they would have known what was going to happen, they never would have gone. We hear such statements after something terrible happens, something tragic. We maybe have even said something like that ourselves. People say things like that, just hoping the problem could have been avoided, hoping loved ones wouldn’t have been harmed.  If only she would have known, she...

See Him Serve

“DON’T TELL ME WHAT TO DO!” I heard him say it – I was right there –  and it really wasn’t pretty. It was his way of standing up for himself. He was sick and tired of someone else telling him what to do. If it was a dispute, I hadn’t heard the first part of it, but I certainly heard the last part. Hopefully the dispute ended right there but I don’t think either one really felt good. Do you think the disciples’ dispute was any...
