By Don Doran / a couple of months ago

I have came across several things this morning that have me thinking about the potter and the clay. God spoke to Jeremiah and uses the potter as an example of God molding our lives. If you have ever watched a potter work with clay on a wheel it is amazing. I have had the opportunity […]

Who Gets the Spoils?

By Don Doran / a couple of months ago

Who Gets the Spoils? Good morning! It has been a while since I have visited with you and I have missed it. Have you heard the expression, “to the winner goes the spoils?” That means whoever wins gets the treasure. “Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of thy […]

I left home a week after my high school graduation to evangelize. My first venture for an extended time away. The first home I was in the pastor’s wife made a wonderful meal and one of the vegetables was squash. I did not like squash but remembered my father’s admonition, “If they cook it, you […]

By Don Doran / a few months ago

I am not artsy by any stretch of the imagination. I might be considered a bit crafty, but never artsy. However, I do know this, anytime an artist begins a project he has a starting point. That starting point is in his mind. He begins to envision what it is he wants to create. He […]

Give Him Your Burdens

By Don Doran / a few months ago

Have you ever had a load that was more than you could carry? You started out all right but along the way it just got heavier until you couldn’t go any further? My dad told me a story of when he was in the military. They were on a long march and being non-combatant he didn’t […]

We Get What We Give

By Don Doran / a few months ago

There is an old saying, “What you see is what you get!” However, Jesus said it differently, “What you give is what you get!” “Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.” Matt 5:7 If we are on the “hot seat” we are sure to want mercy. Yet the real question is how we act when someone […]
