December 31, 2008. I wish I had a dollar for every person in the country who today says, “That’s it. Tonight’s my last night to eat. Tomorrow I start the diet.” I’d have enough money to open my personal health spa, complete with a fitness goon squad that would administer a beat down if I […]

Still Waters

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

It was a glorious summer day in late July 1978. I had spent the better part of an afternoon water skiing with my high school friends, Clair, Steve, Lori, and Kristi. A quintessential day for skiing, the water on Iowa Lake was calm, quiet and smooth as glass. When the sun began to slip behind the trees lining […]

It’s a promise to myself I hope I can keep. I’ll never live in a house that’s part of a homeowner association. I was talking with someone the other day who said they got a letter from their HOA asking them to “move the blue chair off your front yard”. How relieved I was to […]

Quiet Time Resolutions

Sunday, December 30th, 2007

Alexander Whyte said… “The victorious Christian life is a series of new beginnings.” That is certainly true when it comes to our devotional relationship with God, otherwise known as “quiet time”. It has to be one of the Christian’s most popular New Year’s resolutions, “To read my Bible through and spend more time with God.” […]

After The First Of The Year

Friday, January 6th, 2006

You heard the phrase more than once during the Christmas season. “Let’s wait till after the first of the year.” You may have heard it from me. I said it quite a bit. “After the first of the year.” During the frenetic Christmas holiday we speak of early January as though it were a wide […]

A Fresh Start (Audio Message)

Sunday, January 2nd, 2005

[audio:http://www.asliceoflifetogo.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/09/01-A_Fresh_Start.mp3] The New Year. Our good intentions are at their peak in January. Yet there’s no magic in the turning of a calendar page. The challenge of a New Year is that we bring our old self into it. So how do we make a fresh start? God is a gracious God. A God of […]

Infomercial Resolutions

Monday, January 28th, 2002

January 28th. Twenty eight days into the first page of the calendar. Typically, this is the week our New Year’s resolutions say hello to reality. A few years ago I saw an infomercial for a Power Rider. I knew that if Minnesota Vikings Hall of Fame quarterback Fran Tarkenton said it was a great machine […]

Living Or Existing?

Sunday, January 13th, 2002

Go north on Hayden and you’ll see the sign on your right, just past McKellips. Announcing your entrance into the city limits of Scottsdale, it reads, Scottsdale – Welcome – “Most Livable City.” The sign stands twelve inches away from a brown block wall marking the west edge of Green Acres Mortuary and Cemetery. I […]
