Seeking Sage Advice

Monday morning my friend Barbara White treated me to breakfast at Dave’s Diner. Like everyone else in Dave’s, we talked about football (Florida/Georgia game, World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party)… and books. Barbara, a retired newspaper columnist, is the author of the Along The Way series of books.

Monday evening, Donald, my youngest son, called.

He and his wife face a decision of monumental proportions with life-changing implications, a decision which can influence their livelihood, residence, careers, and income. They contemplate a change that may put them on the razor edge of disaster or joy.

Understandably Donald wanted the advice of someone noted for wisdom, discernment, spiritual depth, common sense, wise counsel, and dedication to Christ.

Naturally he called me—to get Barbara White’s phone number.

Anytime you need me, Son.

Dad always stands ready to help…. I have a phone book.


Today is Election Day; in an hour or two, Ginny and I will go to the polls to vote for president, legislature, judges, and many other officers; as well as seven Constitutional Amendments.

Our pre-election sample ballots offers us 58 choices.

Last night we again spent several more hours discussing our sample ballots and looking up on-line references related to the proposed candidates and amendments.

We solidified our choices.

May God give our country better leaders than we deserve.

Dear John C,
I also wish America all well. Hope that your country can unite and still have room for different opinions. That's a right worth fighting for.
I know that if we pray for God's will, like you did yourself, we are promised guidance from God.
He bless and care for you, always.
