Getting Better Reception

This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all? sin.

What's Love Got To Do With It

WEB_7dayWow… it’s cold here in Kansas today. Snow and the whole big winter show, and the Addis Family loves it. I’m sure we’ll be out in the elements trying to make a snowman from the .067 inches that has fallen as soon as school is out (you gotta love those kids). But, right now… no way. I’m inside the warmth of a coffee shop typing away.

I don’t feel like going out there.

It makes me wonder how many of the decisions I make are based on the fact that I do or don’t feel like doing something. Continue reading “What's Love Got To Do With It”

What Were Those Directions Again?

So, here’s a riddle for you. What takes longer to get than a tax refund? Yes, you got it… Andy updating his blog!I’ve received a few emails asking me to update, but when I got a face to face, “Hey buddy, let’s get with it” I had to come to terms with this fact. I have blogging issues.

So, my bad, but here we go…

I’ve had a little time to do some thinking since my wife sent me to a Mavs game in Dallas for the B-day today…. here are the official props by the way… She rocks! Continue reading “What Were Those Directions Again?”

Mercy?

Wow… I’ve never been so thankful that I’m not getting paid for this. If this blog was my job, I’d have been fired with a capital “F”. Sorry it’s been so long.

But, I don’t base my significance on my blogging performance, so, I will continue to remember that I am good enough, smart enough and gosh darn it… people like me (thank you Stuart Smalley, you’ve changed my life. By the way, if you don’t know what I’m talking about there are one of two reasons: 1. you either go to bed way too early on Satuday nights, or 2. you have a life and don’t stay home watching TV on the weekends).

Anyway, back to the blogging. This morning I was getting the lowdown on my faith with my homeslice the gospel of Marky Mark forshizzel… ite!

…sorry, every now and then I slip into 80’s gangsta rap vernacular. I thinks it’s due to some head trauma I suffered while watching Boyz n the Hood… kind of like tourettes, I think. Continue reading “Mercy?”

Say What You Mean

It’s been one of my favorite verses/stories for the longest time.

It has all the elements: a desperate father, and afflicted child, religious tension and a climactic ending. It’s the stuff Hollywood movies are made of.

In this father’s desperation to find an answer for his son, he cries out to Jesus and says “if you can do anything” please stop standing there and show some compassion… fix my boy! Continue reading “Say What You Mean”
