Wayne Weekly: “caution lights”

As I travelled to work a few days ago, I reached a crest in the roadway and just as the oncoming lane became visible there in the opposite lane was a big yellow school bus about to come to a halt. Its yellow lights were flashing and I quickly noticed children and a parent standing […]

Wayne Weekly: “… an eternal ballot”

The elections are behind us now, which means a break from those mean spirited and often misleading television ads. What once gave us information on the beliefs of a candidate has now become a mud-slinging event that keeps you guessing on what is truth and what is a distortion of truth or a just plain […]

Wayne Weekly: “thank the Lord for the simple moments”

Like so many in upstate NY, my family and I have often ventured out to local apple orchards as part of our fall tradition. Picking fresh apples and filling our baskets or bags is fun and rewards you with a crunch into a sphere of juiciness. Things, though, have changed over the years and our […]

Wayne Weekly: “God needs to be invited, or He won’t show up.”

A few weeks ago my daughter Jill and I decided to have a coffee date at a downtown Auburn, Green Mountain Coffee Café .  Though we have wanted to do an early morning coffee thing for a while, a very warm Wednesday morning “perked” us up to venture out. Surprisingly, the café was hopping with […]

Wayne Weekly: Trunk or Treat … an alternative to Halloween

I remember as a kid dressing up and doing the neighborhood rounds for “loot” during trick or treat. Frankly, things seemed less complicated back then. It wasn’t that big of a deal to devise your own costume. Some old jeans, talcum powder, and yes, maybe some of Mom’s make-up. Store bought costumes, OK too. The […]

Wayne Weekly: “refurbishing”

Earlier this month I caved in to the fact that I needed to have some serious restoration work done on the chimney on my home. Fortunately, I only had to rebuild the chimney from the roofline up. Still, not an inexpensive fix, but a necessary one. As the work crew almost effortlessly tore down the […]

Wayne Weekly: “His Invitation”

I recently saw a sign in front of a place of business that reads “Stop in and see us”. Now, I had no real reason to “stop in” for a visit. The service the business offered is a service already fulfilled for me. However, it did make me curious on what they could offer. The […]

Wayne Weekly: “… potholes, ruts and detours…”

Recently my journey into work and back home was hindered by extensive road work from Auburn, in Cayuga County to the Onondaga County line. I would guess that is about a five mile stretch of Rt. 20, at times heavily traveled, bur generally moderate to little traffic (greatly appreciated). For a few weeks traffic was […]

Accentuate the Positive

As the days get a bit longer, and the winter a bit colder, I am reminded of how much we depend upon those things that have made our lives much easier to manage and much more physically comfortable. Most of us, of no choice of our own, were born in North America, either in the […]

Be Thankful

So often we have to remind ourselves to “be thankful”. Our fallen natures just don’t do that well in the thanksgiving department. Thanksgiving gives us opportunity to express gratitude to God for His wonderful provisions. The bounty of our country that we enjoy and often take for granted. We also are reminded to be thankful […]
