Welcome to Wednesday Wonderings.  I know, you saw the number, you heard my voice, “Let’s stay connected… blah, blah, blah.”  But I really want you to listen.  I really would like you to think about isolation or involvement.  Yeah, it just seems so apropos given our current situation.  Isolation or involvement?  We’ve been pushed into isolation, yet Scripture from Proverbs 18 says, “An unfriendly person pursues selfish ends, they defy all sound judgment.  A fool finds no pleasure in understanding but delights in airing his own opinion.”  Isolation is really unhealthy, and I know many people feel isolated.  So take a look at this Wednesday Wonderings.  Ask the question and connect with somebody and get involved.  God bless, and have a great day.

Welcome to Wednesday – I can’t believe we’re still – Wondering.  That’s right!  We’re six months into what I thought was going to be a few weeks of COVID-19. And over the last few weeks I’ve realized that this whole thing has really, REALLY caused a lot of stress, anxiety and tension in all aspects of my life and our lives.  And I’ve realized that there are a lot of cracks in my wall.  It’s caused me to really examine what’s important.  It’s caused me to examine what it means to be a church, what it means to be a father, a husband, what it means to be a person who supposedly is a Christian.  Have we examined our lives?

We’re about ready to begin a new church year.  We’re about ready to face yet another journey with this whole COVID-19.  How about it?  In Mark chapter 7 it says, “’Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as it is written:

“‘These people honor me with their lips,

    but their hearts are far from me.

They worship me in vain;

    their teachings are merely human rules.’

 You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions.’”

What are we holding on to?  Is it the right thing?  Are we honoring God in all we do?  Let’s examine our life and continue to wonder and continue to overcome COVID-19.

Good morning and welcome to Wednesday Wonderings.  I hope that today you will give me a little bit of latitude.  It was a challenging weekend.  You see, Sunday morning at 2AM our wonderful, faithful dog died in my lap at home.  Later on that morning, Jenny and I went out, dug a grave, and buried her next to her dad.  You know, a lot of us love our pets.  Some people think we’re crazy – it’s just a dumb ol’ dog.  Yet, they can teach us so much and they can enrich our lives. 

It’s interesting that in Proverbs it says in chapter 12 verse 10, “A righteous man cares for the needs of his animal, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.”  Huh.  So if we’re kind to our animals, that means we’re closer to being who God wants us to be.  Interesting!  I didn’t even know that.  But, I hope you take the time to read the devotional that is attached to an email that you get or to our website.  It’s just a simple devotional that talks about what dogs can teach us about God and how they can impact our lives. 

Again, we loved Izzy.  She got to die at home with us.  It wasn’t easy, it isn’t easy, but God gave us a gift.  So thanks for listening, thanks for the latitude.  Have a great day.  God bless.
