    I want you to let your imagination run free for a moment. I want you to use your mind’s imagination to picture yourself, your personality, who you are really, as a house. That’s right as a house. Any kind of house will do -- just so it’s yours.

    Abigail was a remarkable woman!  She was a true peacemaker whose courage spared the future king of Israel from committing a terrible sin. Here is her story.

    How do we know when we are encountering a lie? It happens when words and actions do not line up. If I, for example, claim to care about a particular need or situation, and then, do not live in such a way that reflects that care and concern, I am lying.  I have to admit I’m guilty of this often, regarding everything from losing my patience with my kids to reducing my carbon footprint.

    Much of Daniel is prophecy – end times – we did that with Revelation, but many lessons from Daniel we need to know – magnificent stories. These are stories we should all know by now but often do not; Daniel interpreting dreams, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego and the blazing furnace, Daniel and the lion’s den.

    A reflection is “a return of an image” as your reflection in the mirror is a reverse image of you.  Humans need “a return of an image” once in a while.  You need to see if your hair is out of place or all your buttons are “in a row”.  Personal reflection can go far beyond a check of our physical appearance.  Personal reflection can be a careful examination of our emotional well-being.  It can be a check of our financial well-being.  We can have someone help us as when we have a physical examination by a doctor.  There is one more personal reflection that I would like to propose to you today: a spiritual reflection.  The type of thorough examine that really takes a close look at who I am.

    One gets excited this time of year, seeing that the days are getting longer, and spring is not that far off, which means the Lenten Season is upon us. Ash Wednesday this year is on Valentine’s Day and Easter is on April 1st

    I can’t help it. Almost every time I read history, I find that at some point I insert myself into the scenario. It may be the innocent musing of “I wonder what it would have been like?” At other times, it’s a bit more active, “What would I have done in that situation?” Sometimes I even see myself in the historical interactions like I did the other day.

    Far too often individuals in our society today, avoid confrontation, dodge responsibility, and remain apathetic behind the idea that whatever the issue, it is not their problem. A quick glance at history should remind us of how situations we face can get out of hand, or how different our history would be if that had been the attitude of not only our forefathers but of individuals who have “done something” whenever the situation arose before them. 
    In our community, we face the task of finding solutions to issues like truancy. Our county has and will spend tax dollars looking for a solution. It is very true that it takes a village to raise a child, but this pastor wonders where the responsible parties are?

    On the north side of my hometown, there is the world’s largest pheasant. It stands there, looking toward the north, perched on what was an ice cream place when I was a child. This pheasant has been there since 1959. It is 28 feet tall and it weighs 22 tons, and is made of fiberglass and steel. From the tip of its beak to the point of its tail, it’s over 40 feet long.

    The Bible, it is certainly the most remarkable book of love in the world.  It records the greatest love story ever written—God’s unconditional love for us that sent His Son to die on the cross (John 3:16; I John 4:10).  If it can be said that one attribute of God is more important than another, or that one reveals the innermost nature of God more than another, the attribute of love should be given that place.
