So I am writing to you not because you don’t know the truth but because you know the difference between truth and lies.

~ I John 2:21, NLT


If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end, despair.

~C.S. Lewis


We cannot see light because it moves too swiftly but we do see what light reveals. Now there is natural light and there is a spiritual light. Paul said to the Corinthians, “Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.” To put it succinctly, the unregenerate world is walking in darkness, spiritual darkness and they think followers of Christ are crazy. 

But we are living in the light, as God is in the light, and we have fellowship with each other blood bought believers. This gives us the distinct advantage of knowing the truth from a lie. {I John 2:21} Discerning truth is not strictly a matter of intelligence. There are some highly intelligent people who believe in evolution but they don’t know Christ who is the key and the source of wisdom. My IQ is slightly over 100 and I know that evolution is a joke and a hoax.
Perhaps you are thinking: what difference does it make whether we know the truth or not? It made a huge difference in Jacob’s life; he stopped grieving for a son who was presumed dead but in fact was very much alive. You have some love ones you presume to be dead but that’s lie, in Christ all are alive. When we walk under the dark cloud of a lie, we walk in darkness but once we see the truth we are liberated by the light.  After twenty years of captivity to the bondage of grief, the truth sat Jacob free.


  • Chloe Bugs surgery went well and by last night she was eating everything under the sun. She wants me to carry her to Jim and Nicks. I wonder who put that idea in her head. This ordeal is turning Jeremy bitter: he told Holly last night, “Your mother bakes cakes for others when they are sick, it looks like she would have baked one for Chloe.” The boy deserves a cake but not because Chloe is sick…just read between the lines.
  • Bill Wilbourn’s service went well. Sir Douglas did the singing but he didn’t bring my favorite {Fly to Jesus}. The Decatur Police department did the last part and it was impressive. Bill served the police department for 25 years.
  • Doctor’s appointment today and more test tomorrow. Maybe we will get back to normal someday, whatever normal is–not sure I know!
  • GATHERING TONIGHT @ 6:30. [Pizza In The Parlor tonight at 7:15]
