Not-so-hidden treasures of the Bible

Previously, I’ve written that I tried to keep my little stretch of road clean by picking up the trash a couple of times each year. So, I developed a keen eye for trash. Even a small piece sticks...

 

Doing will of God protects you from falling away

We’re now about mid-autumn, which is also called fall. Autumn is from the Latin word “autumnus,” which likely came from a pre-Latin word meaning “increasing,” possibly referring to the...

 

Find unity in the blood of Christ

My pocket calendar says today (Oct. 12) is a Mexican holiday called, “Day of the Race.” Having no clue what it was, I looked it up on the internet and found it’s called by various names in...

 

Stay seasoned with the salt of Christ

My wife and I discussed reducing sodium in our diets. While humans need sodium for good health, we usually get more than we need, and too much of even any good thing is not good, except when it comes...

 

Facts of history support the truth

While I have many ideas for my articles, sometimes I check the internet to see what happened on the expected date of publication in the Quay County Sun. I did so this year for Sept. 14, and here’s...

 

Allow God to cultivate you positively as a Christian

Monday is Labor Day, the last summer holiday, although most schools, including colleges and universities, already have started classes. So be careful of young people walking, running and playing on...

 

Keep an eye out for the one and only Jesus Christ

People occasionally get the best of me and, recently, I was bested big-time by a teenager. Another teen was holding a younger child and said, in jest, she was going to kidnap her, likely because the...

 

A tale of two camps

Our grandson spent a week at two church camps this summer — one in northern New Mexico and one in southern New Mexico, both in the mountains. When we dropped him off at the second camp, I mentioned...

 

The bigger role of doorkeeping

My last article earlier this month ended with a statement that being a doorkeeper in the Lord’s house was a great area of service for new Christians of almost any age because anyone can do the...

 

Learning to serve through 4-H

Quay County 4-H was well-represented at the Eastern District Contests in Alamogordo recently. Contests included a broad range of topics; see aces.nmsu.edu/4h/contests/sedistrict/index.html for more...

 

Prescriptions for salvation

I had influenza A recently, and although the meds my doctor prescribed were effective, I was still weak with no appetite for a few days. To justify not eating, I read up on feeding colds and starving...

 

Thoughts about the concept of hope

New Mexico’s primary election will be over by the time this article is published but, while the outcome isn’t known as I write, the results have likely been widely reported on radio, television...

 

What counts and who's counting

It seems my articles in the Quay County Sun this year often have fallen close to holidays, which gives me plenty to write about, but I don’t remember it happening much in the past. Next Monday is Me...

 

Remembrances – Mother's Day

This past Sunday was Mother’s Day. That should’ve been no surprise to anyone who watches TV or looks at the ads that come by email and snail mail, including the inserts in your Quay County Sun....

 

The light finally came on

I’ve written a lot about light lately because the Bible says a lot about light in relation to God that cannot be covered in a single article. John 1:1-5 states of Jesus, “In him was life and that...

 

Light at the end of the tunnel

Two weeks ago, I wrote about waking up in the dark due to the time change. The Bible says a lot about light, especially pertaining to God being the light at the beginning and end of this dark world...

 

Take God seriously on April Fool's

This Friday is April Fool’s Day; I hope everyone survives. The origin of this holiday has been widely disputed, and it’s considered an official holiday only in Odessa, Ukraine. I wonder if they...

 

We've started waking up in the dark

It’s been a few days since we confused our internal clocks with the change to daylight saving time. While I’ll eventually get used to the time change, I’ve revisited some previous experiences re...

 

A year-round Lenten season

The Lenten season, which is celebrated by many, begins today, March 2. Lent is based on Jesus’ 40-day and night wilderness fast when he was tempted by the cravings of the flesh (food ...

 

Show and tell your love for God

Valentine’s Day was this past Monday. Last year, I ordered a living plant for my wife online and then the weather turned really nasty. So the delivery was delayed and when the plant arrived, it was...

 

Making some Groundhog Day predictions

The date for today’s Quay County Sun is Feb. 2. I like to and actually need to get an early start on my articles as it sometimes it takes me the full two weeks between deadlines to write them. So,...

 

Eat yer spinach, just like Popeye

When two of our grandsons spent a few days with us recently, we asked them whether they liked spinach. Both emphatically replied, “Yes!” While helping my wife with dinner by preparing the...

 

Make a resolution in faith today

New Year’s Day was just four or five days ago, and I suspect many resolutions already have been broken, especially those that had to take effect on Jan. 1 (for example, resolving to never have evil...
