I attended a church service with almost 2000 other people on Easter Sunday. During the sermon, little mention was made about the resurrection of Jesus which surprised me. After all, when Jesus was resurrected, that single fact energized a new spiritual movement which eventually spread over the known world.

I have been thinking about the power of a resurrection. One physicist has likened Jesus’ resurrection to a small-scale nuclear fission, and the X-rays or gamma-rays left a bodily imprint on the burial shroud which has been identified as the Shroud of Turin.… More

I arrived back from an outstanding Arizona vacation at 8 pm. My ground floor was flooded….. from a leak in the icemaker water line in the refrigerator (the water-ice filter just broke in two). Although my feelings were numb, I was driven to mop up all the water – and this took four hours. I called the insurance company at 1 am.… More

While eastern USA was in a deep freeze (lowest February temperature on record), the Gray Nomad was hiking Arizona where the average temp was 70F. Got some great pics! Also learned a deep spiritual lesson while out there, see Post-Script below.

To summarize: • Ten lepers called out to Jesus, “Take pity on us.” • Jesus responded, “Go show yourself to the priests to confirm you are healed.” As they went they were healed. • One of them turned back, and fell at Jesus’ feet thanking him over and over.… More

About three years ago, I had an atrial fibrillation (AFib) while in California. My heart rate was 120 beats per minute for two days and a night. I knew this was dangerous, as it can induce stroke. I flew back to ABQ to see my heart doctor. He checked my vitals, did a running EKG, and gave me a scrip to counteract the symptoms.… More

 

Her name was Bindi, which means Little girl in Australian Aboriginal language. She was part chihuahua and acted like it. She would perch cozily on my lap while I worked. But in bed if I turned over on her, she would bite me.… More

 

Every once in a while I learn of an occasion when God talks with someone, in an audible voice. Here is a vivid example.

A nursing home was being closed by the state. A lady I shall call Gwen was called to assess some residents of the home, to see if they could be transferred into an alternative nursing home which was partly owned by Gwen.… More
