52 Bible Verses for a Joy Filled Year – Week 34

Here we are already at Week #34 – 18 weeks left in this year-long series.

It’s August and hot here in Ohio, with very little rain. The weather man said thunderstorms for yesterday and he was right. We had 1 clap of thunder and about 10 minutes of rain. Not enough water to quench anybody’s thirst.


However, coming to Jesus and drinking the living water will quench everyone’s thirst. So drink heartily both God’s word and water this week – one to satisfy your soul’s thirst and the other to satisfy your body in this August heat.


If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. 

John 7:37

Remembering Elvis 40 Years Later

What to do to remember Elvis on this the 40th Anniversary of his death.

40 years after Elvis’ death, we are still trapped in a world troubled with pain. Mostly because of our own doing. I will not go into my tirade right now.

I will say keep dreaming of that better land and then do what is in your power to make this country that better land.

This is my favorite Elvis song and it is just as relevant today as it was when recorded in 1968 and when he passed in 1977.

Sing it E!


Elvis Aaron Presley 

January 8th, 1935 – August 16th, 1977

We still love you tender. Thank you for shaking up the music industry.

52 Bible Verses for a Joy Filled, Positive Year – Week 33

It is important for us to remember a couple of facts  while trudging through a winter or desert of life:

  • God loves us
  • NOTHING will separate us from his love


May you and I remember that this week and always.



Neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, not height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. 

Romans 8:38 – 39
