Best wishes to your family for a blessed and restful Thanksgiving.

The Word on Thanksgiving“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:6-7. Paul admonishes men to live with a thanksgiving state of mind. With thanksgiving, the peace of God will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. That means the noise and distractions of the world that work to keep us anxious even during this season will not be granted any power over us.

One of the most frustrating statistics on the fathering front is that less than one in ten families attending church weekly have any spiritual discussion in the home between Sundays. This lack of intentionality gives the world more influence than we realize and the result rests square on the shoulders of dads!

When my kids were learning to drive, I was very intentional in helping them to understand the rules of the road. I took them out to the country and downtown Houston in all kinds of weather to teach them how to handle a vehicle under various road conditions. And I equipped them to stay alert because other drivers will disregard the rules of the road and do the unexpected – there is no shortage of such educational opportunities while driving around Houston. We talked often about leaving enough room to have a way out of a bad situation. The intentional effort paid off in that both kids are good drivers.

In light of Veteran’s Day, this is a shout out to all those who have served in the military in defense of our great country, this one nation under God. Thank you!

I learned the hard way to honor our veterans. Growing up in a violent alcoholic home, I just knew I did not want anything to do with Dad nor have anything in common with him. After having our last run in, I left home at a young age. My eldest sister and her husband opened their home to me and I moved on with life. I had two prayers and one goal as a young man – I prayed I would be blessed with a happy and healthy marriage and family, and that I would keep my family well above the poverty line I had grown up below; My goal was to go as far as I could in the opposite direction of my dad.

All was going well with that plan. I had not effectively talked with Dad for 15 years - read on ...

“I’m a Believer” was a smash hit for The Monkees in 1966. A key line in the popular tune was, “I believe in love.” Of course the song was about feelings of love for a girl. A question beckons - Am I a believer of feelings or of something more substantial?

Brittany Maynard tugged on our feelings this past week. The 29 year old, diagnosed with a lethal brain tumor, took her life Saturday, November 1st with a fatal dose of medication. Such a dose can be obtained legally by terminally ill patients courtesy of Oregon’s right-to-die law. This case was widely publicized through an organization called Compassion and Choices, an end-of-life advocate. Chief program officer, Mickey MacIntyre told CBS News he considers it “the next civil and human right.”

If anyone had a “right” to determine when and how they were going to die, would it not have been Jesus the Christ? ...read on
