Gen 1.3 +

Gen 1.3

“And God said, ‘Let there be light’

and there was light.”


“ ‘There is no harm in it.’

You are just about half gone when you admit that.”

– S D Herron, sermon (uncertain date)


  1. What happened to our schools? #9

Third McGuffey Reader (4th – 5th grade, Rev.,1920) had these Christian words:

Holy (p. 75)   Hymns (p. 51)   Let there be light (p. 12)   Example:

God said, “Let there be light.” (Under Punctuation, Quotation Marks)


“Hell is a strange place for man; it was never made for mankind.

It will be a strange place for all eternity & there will be unutterable loneliness in hell.”

– S D Herron, sermon (uncertain date)



Excuse me, if you must.

You will pray, I trust;

It’s God’s will or “bust”

Before I “bit the dust.”

Good-bye to material lust,

Never to see the “upper crust,”

I’ll lay my treasure where there’s no rust,

And yield my all to the God that’s just.

Mat 6.9b – 10a

“…Pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come.”


You’ve read it, you’ve said it, you’ve even prayed it but, is it paramount to you? To me? “Thy Kingdom Come…” Are we working, are we witnessing, are we writing so that “Thy Kingdom” comes to our road, our church, our family altar? “Amen”? “O me”? – eab, 3/19/19


“When he [Pascal] died [1622] his friends found sewed up in his doublet…a paper ‘God of Abraham, God of Isaac, God of Jacob – not of philosphers…’”

Don’t get bitten by the education “bug.” Schooling has helped some, been a trap to many, & the self-educated man is not exempt from danger. Pride lurks at the door of both the PhD & the man who made his own (better?) way. Use facts but more importantly, apply wisdom. Wisdom does not come from books – only the Good Book.

– eab, 3/20/19


“…A husband should give of himself

that his wife might be a saint.”

– Andrew W Blackwood
