While driving the other day, I began noticing the different types of trees, and it reminded me of the people that we all have in our lives.

It’s that time of the year. Do you feel the pressure building, yet? If, so let’s take a deep breath before we dive into the holidays and plan instead of panic. Yes, we can plan our Thanksgiving meal and write out our Christmas list. We can check our calendars to make sure we are not going to miss an event that we want to attend, but that is not the only planning we want to do.

I just recently finished a study of Philippians by Karen Ehman, titled “What Matters Most.” One of the main things that I gained from this study was something she said in one of her videos. She said that we get our gaze and our glance mixed up. We gaze at our problems and glance at Jesus when we should be glancing at our problems and gazing at Jesus.

I was people watching recently when I noticed that a large percentage of people had clothing with advertisements on them. Some were brand names, a favorite sports team or a popular vacation destination. There were a few that no one should wear or read that had something vulgar or distasteful on them. But, it was another category that I began to look for, and that category was shirts that had a word or phrase that displayed passion.

Do you like to watch true crime shows? I can easily get caught up is a real life “who done it” story. It’s fascinating to see how the bad guy’s sins find him out. We want justice, and we want the criminal to get repaid for what he or she did.

How do you feel about interruptions? Most of us don’t like them. We have a plan, and we don’t want anything to get in the way. We even have a plan on how to carry out God’s will for our lives. Planning is important, and it keeps us on track. God wants us to be efficient in carrying out the work that he has for us to do. But just as planning is a God thing sometimes so are interruptions.

Remember the “Help, I’ve fallen and can’t get up” ad? The ad promotes a product to help those who have fallen physically and need assistance getting back to their feet. Do you ever feel like you fallen spiritually and just can’t get up? We could all use a lifeline from time to time.

Choices matter is a theme that has resurfaced lately. I say that it has resurfaced because it has always been true, and the Bible has much to say about how to make wise choices and the results of foolish ones.

How many times have we heard or even said ourselves, “I may have thought it, but I didn’t say it?” We think somehow that it’s okay if the bad comment doesn’t come out of our mouths. The Bible has a lot to say about our thought life too.

This week is the time when we reflect on our nation and how great it is to live in America. There are so many facets of our history that we have forgotten or never knew and many of them are right before our face constantly.

Last weekend I attended the Kentucky Christian Writers Conference. After the conference ended on Saturday, my family and I stayed in the beautiful Elizabethtown, Kentucky and waited until Sunday to drive home.

We know that when Jesus taught, he used examples of common everyday things that the people of biblical times would recognize and could easily understand. He talked about such things as seeds, sheep, lost coins to make his spiritual lessons real to those he was teaching. Where do you think Jesus learned to teach like this?

Churches all around my area are preparing for Vacation Bible School. Along with the crafts, cookies, and Kool-Aid, I remember learning the basic Bible stories during this time. As homage to VBS, I thought we would look at one of them this week and see that there is much more to the story than what we learned as a child.
