Without love

The Doobie Brothers recorded a song in 1973 called “Long Train Runnin”. One of the lyrics in the song is “Without Love, where would you be right now?” Think of all the things, places and people in our lives to which we ascribe love.

That lyric begs the question, “Without love where would we be right now?

Imagine for a moment marriages without love. Think of all the people places and things to which we ascribe some form of what we believe is love.

I love my wife with compassionate, unconditional devoted love. I love my children. I love to listen to Gospel music. I love rock and roll. I love fried chicken and corn on the cob.

I love pizza, I love chicken salad. I love to watch college football, I love our church family, I love chocolate. I could go and on about the things in my life to which I attach the emotion of love.

It is a worldly misconception that love means different things to different people.

ALL love of every kind, for any person, place or thing comes from God in the person of Jesus Christ. There is no other source. There is no other definition or meaning.

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17

How to Introduce Yourself

Some of my stories are poignant while others are just flat our funny. This is a little poignant and a lot funny.

The Driveway Rules

First off, what in the world are the driveway rules? The driveway rules are your own set of social rules that you put on people in a given situation. Usually when we get upset at somebody it is because they did not act in the way we expected them to. In other words, they broke your driveway rule. The Driveway Rules is also the name of my book which contains memoirs of me growing up with undiagnosed autism. If there is one post I really would want you to see it is this one. You’ll relate and you’ll laugh. Really laugh.
