This summer I had a goal to read some “challenging to my faith” books. I’ve read two so far and now working on my third.   My first read was a re-run for me, Hudson Taylor’s auto-biography. Hudson Taylor founded the China Inland Mission.   I’m not going to review the book, just to say […]

Have you ever felt like things you’re dealing with in life are just “over your head”? Of course you have, most likely anyway.   This past July 4 holiday my family and I took to a 4 day camping adventure. Even though Fair Haven State Park has been frequented by the Taylor family many times […]

You may be old enough to remember the hit song by the Carpenters, Rainy Days and Mondays. It was a melancholy song about how Mondays and rainy days affected the writer, and from a general perspective, how those two things can bring someone “down”.   I am gathering that Mondays are a down because the […]

It’s baseball season. The summer “laid back excitement” pastime for many. I am not much of a sports enthusiast I’ll admit that. I may watch a few basketball games (SU) during basketball season. I usually watch the Superbowl. This past number of months my wife Evie and I kind of “got into” NASCAR racing…until the […]

Recently I heard of a bumper sticker that reads, “I am Unique”…just like everyone else. That sums it up nicely, many think they are unique, an individual, exclusive, distinctive, and the like. Many want to be known for this uniqueness. It gives a sense of importance.   When I was growing up that self-description was […]

You’ve probably heard the cliché, “Are we having fun yet?”  That’s the kind of thing you say when you go to an amusement park and end up sicker than a dog because you rode the “Himalaya Bob” ride with your daughter…right after lunch!   I like having fun. You like having fun. But “fun” is […]

Ties to this earthly life are often pretty powerful. Being tethered to our current existence is experienced by all. Nothing wrong with loving one’s family, one’s friends. Nothing bad about loving the life God has blessed you with and living it to the fullest. God sent His Son Jesus to give us life, and life […]

Today is my birthday. I’ve had a lot of experience in celebrating my “special” day. Actually I did very little to make it all happen. I guess the closest thing I did to achieve my first May 15 was respond to the Dr’s slap and take a deep breath , followed by exercising my vocal […]

We live in Central New York, where sunshine is worth its weight in gold. It’s funny how sunny days lift your spirits. In the springtime when the sun shines, car windows come down and elbows protrude. Lawnmower engines are heard, and basketball bouncing sounds emerge on the audio landscape.   Overcast skies, well they change […]

My name, Wayne, is English and means…wagon maker! Not the noblest of names and its popularity has waned (!) since the late 40s and 50s. I am OK with it, especially since that’s what everyone calls me.   Names can be important. They can actually determine to a degree how someone interprets you. I mean […]
