This week my “Yuletide” camellia bloomed for the first time. My absolute complete favorite color and form – and the only one like this I have for this season of the year.
Things to be thankful for today:
- Single pink
- Single white
- Dwarf double white (shown)
- Dwarf double red
Engine computer is out.
My neighbor removed the faulty engine computer of my F-350 today and charged me nothing. (Next move, mail the faulty computer to a repair shop.)
Six more Bible lessons published.
That may not seem like much, however, it marks the end of a many weeks stand-down as I re-engineered the entire video production process. Two videos at Eternal Weight of Glory and four videos at Practical Christian Living.
Fresh bread and hot meat.
A fresh loaf on the counter, and two roasts, beef and pork, hot in the breadmaker.
The earth suffers for the sins of its people, for they have twisted God’s instructions, violated his laws, and broken his everlasting covenant. – Isaiah 24:5
More and more today, people are calling sweet “bitter”, and calling bitter “sweet” as they proclaim “politically correct” moral dogmas that are directly opposite to the Everlasting Covenant which God made with all of us through Noah.

The Un-Muzzled Ox
Who serves as a soldier at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat of its fruit? Who tends a flock and does not drink of its milk? Do I say this from a human perspective? Doesn’t the Law say the same thing? For it is written in the Law of Moses: “Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain.” Is it about oxen that God is concerned? Isn’t He actually speaking on our behalf? Indeed, this was written for us, because when the plowman plows and the thresher threshes, they should also expect to share in the harvest. If we have sown spiritual seed among you, is it too much for us to reap a material harvest from you?
— 1st Corinthians 9:7-11
Not out of compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
Forty new friends on Facebook this morning.
Three-hundred fifty friends in nineteen days.
I know six of them.
Most of my new Facebook friends are in Ethiopia and Bangladesh.
Walking with Christ Jesus, the path always takes surprising turns.
Maintaining and publishing the videos and the site is rewarding.
Maintaining and publishing the videos and the site is tedious.
It is nearly midnight.
