How Do You Begin Your Day?

8/2/2022
How do you start your day? Thank you for beginning part of your Wednesdays with a Firm foundation Inspiration Minute. Many years ago in college, I took a couple of classes about writing computer software. There was a phrase that went, "Garbage in, garbage out." The idea was that if your software looked bad and ran poorly, it was because the programming was not good. Computer software will only operate in the way it was programmed. Let me extend that example to say that God himself has...

The Joy of Children - Don’t Hinder Them

7/5/2022
For the past five days, my wife and I have had two of our three grandchildren with us. We were also together with all three of our grands on a couple of occasions over the July 4 holiday weekend.

It occurred to me today that while she said goodbye to being a school teacher, I know she will continue to educate at one level or...
