Love at a Distance

Day two...

When you love your children at a distance—when you are separated willingly or unwillingly from those you want to protect—you do not have to be a helpless bystander watching them play the game of life on their own. You can be on both their offensive and defensive teams in ways just as powerful as if they were under your physical care and protection.

Day three...

If you've never thought about being intentional with “favor” let me assure you that it works. To protect our children's privacy I won't go into details, but they experience the favor of man on a regular basis. Our children also experience the favor of God, on a regular basis. Sherrel and I are very intentional about praying for our children to have favor with both man and God, because it works. And it will work for your children also.

Day four...

After a phone conversation with one of my closest friends a few days ago, something he said stuck in my mind. I'm not quoting him exactly… basically he told me that our conversations were never predictable but always good.

Day five...

If you have a new‐born in your house, I'm sure you don't have any problem interfering with your baby's free will. It's the only way you'll ever get any rest.

Day six...

If you were an extremely wealthy single male or female in the business community, how would you go about finding a spouse? How could you determine if someone you were interested in was interested in you or your money? Would it be possible to find out ahead of the wedding ceremony?

Love at a Distance

Day seven...

I trained and showed Quarter Horses as a teenager. When I moved back home to Missouri from New York I started riding again. After being out of the saddle for fifteen years my technique had become rusty, and I was having trouble with one of Dad's horses. This gelding was doing some things I didn't like, but I wasn't sure what I should control and what I should just accept.

Day eight...

Do you have another human being who is as interested in your welfare as his or her own? Do you have someone in your life willing to risk death to protect you? How many people will you encounter over the next twenty‐four hours who have no one looking after them? How many of these people have parents who love them but don't understand how to love them at a distance—by creating opportunities and eliminating threats?

Acting like We Believe

If every Christian in America was asked the question, “Do you believe the Bible?” the answer would probably be: “Yes.” Some people might even appear to be a little offended by being asked.

Day one...

Did you ever wonder what it would be like to be a tire? (Sherrel rolls her eyes and says, “Where do you come up with this stuff?”) But think about it… seriously.

Day two...

The first house I built had a stone exterior. When the mason removed the polyethylene sheeting protecting the soffits from mortar, he unknowingly left about a square–foot piece up high on the wall. I saw that tattered plastic every time I was out in the yard, but I needed a ladder to get it down. So I just got used to it. I'm not even sure I removed it when I sold the house.
