Nothing is Free

ShepherdCalls_WPIt was dinnertime. My wife and I sat at the table watching all the activity behind our house. Three deer were by the salt block and more down in the woods. Several turkeys wandered around the yard scavenging. The hummingbirds were busily eating at the feeders and buzzing one another.

Woodpeckers and tufted titmice were making regular visits to the peanut feeder. Cardinals, blue jays, and rose-breasted grosbeaks were eating

Circles

ShepherdCalls_WPSome time ago, I attended a meeting where a colleague was trying to get a motion passed. Basically, I agreed with his motion. It was biblical. He quoted several scriptures in his presentation. A chorus of “Amen” indicated many people agreed; but when it came time to vote, I voted against it.

I had several problems with his motion. First, his attitude and demeanor in presenting the motion seemed lacking

Christ and Country

ShepherdCalls_WPOn Friday, the United States of America will be 238 years old. For some time now, I have been prayerfully pondering my country’s birthday. As you might expect, a part of my ponderings pertain to my country and Christ. There are those who tell us our country was founded on Christian precepts. Then again, there are those who insist that it was not. I am always open to truth, but

Upscale

ShepherdCalls_WPIn Montreal, a heavily armed SWAT team raided an upscale condominium. They captured three men who escaped from jail recently. These guys must be numbered among the criminally elite. They made their escape in a helicopter; they hid out in a posh condominium; they were facing upscale charges — murder and gangster activity — and it took a heavily armed SWAT team bashing in a door to capture them.

Supposedly,

Voices

ShepherdCalls_WP“Voices! I hear voices.” I called the secretary in the adjacent office and asked, “Do you have your radio on?”

“No,” she answered.

It continued. I could hear a voice. Was I losing my mind? Now, it got worse. The voice was calling my name. “Wade, Wade.” It was faint, but it was a real voice. That voice was calling my name. “Wait a minute,” I thought. “I recognize that

Fatherhood

ShepherdCalls_WPHe is a young father. He has a two-year-old son and a very sick one-month-old daughter. A sonogram a few weeks prior to her birth revealed serious heart abnormalities. At three weeks, she had major open-heart surgery. At our invitation the couple have spent time before the baby’s birth and since at our house. Their maturity level has been superb.

I could commend either parent; but since it will soon

The Shepherd Calls: My Garden 

ShepherdCalls_WPYears ago, my wife and I were privileged to visit some friends in London. Our friends took us many places to show us the sights of their lovely country. At Buckingham Palace, I was admiring the beautiful, flowery scenery and remarked, “What a lovely yard.”

Quick as a flash, our hostess said, “That definitely is not a yard. A yard is where you park your car.” In London, a yard

Opportunities Missed

ShepherdCalls_WPAt our request, our guest went to the piano and played for us. He played and sang a song he had written himself. It was beautiful. From where I was seated, I could watch his hands move nimbly across the keys; and for the umpteenth time, I wished I could play the piano.

What makes my wish more painful is that I took piano lessons for nearly seven years, but

Spiritual Neglect

ShepherdCalls_WPThe conversation was not directed toward me; but I overheard it and cringed inwardly. The group was actually bragging about not going to church.

“I haven’t been to church in so long . . .”

“Me either, I haven’t even met our new pastor/priest.”

I listened carefully, hoping it was more a confession than a boast; but it did not seem so. The speakers seemed to be swaggering in a
