1Sa 2.3 +

1Sa 2.3

“Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogancy come out of your mouth:

for the LORD is a God of knowledge & by him actions are weighed.”


Read your Bible – like It’s a Legal Document – God means ALL He says.

Read your Bible – like It’s a Literary Masterpiece – God’s limitless Mind is speaking.

Read your Bible – like It’s a Love Letter – No one, but No One loves you like God does. – 2/24/20


“To keep the blessing, there must be steadfast, childlike faith…

Unbelief is banished. Doubts are put away.”

– Samuel L Brengle


Mountain – Fountain [last of longer poem]

I’ve tasted water from the ocean,

And from a hand-dug well,

Quenched my thirst from a clear stream,

And from pure snow that fell.

The Living Water that the Son gives out

Satisfies the soul.

And cleans from sin, without a doubt.

– eab, Feb. ‘73


“…Life must have almost burst with fullness of gladness! Walking with God! Talking with God! Communing with God!…All this by faith, by simple trust, by childlike confidence.”

– Samuel L Brengle


The place where two or three Believers meet becomes a sanctuary, whither white-frame, forest glen, or old brick. The meeting place is wonderfully less important than the meeting; a meeting of like-souled-saints, seeking while still on His footstool, to worship the Heavenly King high on His impossible-to-imagine throne. Enjoy His presence as you enjoy the presence of your peers; all of you met to adore the Almighty, the joy made greater by being shared. – 2/24/20


Mat 18.20

“For where two or three are gathered together in my name,

there am I in the midst of them.”


“None can believe how powerful prayer is & what it is able to effect

but those who have learned it by experience.”

– Martin Luther


May I, as a septuagenarian, make a request, whither you see yourself as a follower of Christ or a sinner. Please do not get a tattoo. It won’t make you richer, more fluent in speech, a better driver/pilot; in fact, I can see no place where a tattoo will improve life. No Place. But it will mark you (sadly, this is more than a pun). A tattoo marks you as a person who wants to connect with sinful surroundings. (Saints aren’t known as tattoo wearers.) A tattoo marks you as one who willingly connects with the heathen. (Heathens across yrs have tattooed.) And a tattoo marks you as one who devalues his God-made body. Do not Ink. -2/24/20


“…The Holy Ghost teaches, preaches & declares Christ…

we must 1st hear the Word & then afterwards the Holy Ghost works in our hearts…”

– Martin Luther
