Update for November podcasts


Entering the room I heard a sound.

Looking as I turned around

I saw a shadow on the wall.

And again I heard a voice call.

There was only me.

How could this be?

The shadow did not move,

Nor did itself remove.

Again a voice I heard

It said only one word,



Then, “the battle has been won.

Why do you worry my son?”

Then the shadow moved from the wall,

And again I heard a voice from within call.

“Life, do not fear it.

I am the Holy Spirit.

Sent from God above

With his infinite love.”

“I will lead you in all you do.

The old is gone, we will find the new.

As you believe

Now do receive.”

“God has a plan 

For every man

Who confesses

And professes.”

“Be still, and know that He is God.”

The shadow then entered me,

And now all that I can ever be

Is what God does see.

I have been set free.

Oh those old and aching bones

Walking on a sea of stones,

Following the path set before him

He smiles and sings a mighty hymn.

There is One who walks before,

Who once did open the door

And invited the other to walk,

And follow, to pray and talk

There were many star filled nights

And many sunlit glorious sights.

He who walked first would pray,

The other only wanted to stay

One day the journey did end.

The other said to his new found friend,

I believe it is time,

I have lived my rhyme.

The One took him into his arms.

And the other knew no harm

Would come upon him,

He had sung the hymn.

Before, he had given his life

To the One who took his strife

And led him to the certainty

Of being with the One for eternity.

Who is leading your journey? Know the

Truth of Jesus and be set free from worldly

distractions. Find peace in your day and 

eternity’s days.

Okay. That would be a good title for a poem. 

Mute the sound in that I have found.

Weakness will abound 

cuz no one will hear, 

No one will fear 

what the world has for us 

without Jesus.

God uses a sinner

Though not a beginner

To pen each word

That he has heard

Did this man wonder

Having gone asunder

Why the words were there

Found floating in the air

What did God see

Why could this be

In times of distraction

Why now this attraction

Because the world abounds

With the Heavenly sounds

That will astound

As one is found

Forgiving his sin

God never gives in

On His love for us

So he sent us Jesus

That is why this man

Writing the words can

Write each word

He has heard.

I wrote two tonight

And I wonder why

It is not a fight

Distracted to try



Reading the prophets,

Reading the Psalms,

Praying and giving alms.

Hoping all that calms

My soul will grow

In the seeds I sow.

From deep inside my pockets

I will remove my hands to praise

The One our God did raise.

Having suffered and died

My sin He could not abide.

He took my rightful place

For my life of disgrace.

I more than know, I believe

And through God’s grace I receive

Forgiveness of my sin.

Now in this race I will win.

I will sing the hymn

With words that Praise Him.

And on bended knees I will also pray

That in the end in His arms I will lay.

“16 . . . All things were created through Him and for Him.  17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.  18 And he is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.”  (Col 1:16-18, NKJV))

Since the beginning of time

God’s will and ways do rhyme;

Such as on that darkened afternoon, the temple veil was torn,

Then again at the resurrection as new life was born.

We read God’s word and believe

That through His Son we receive

Blessings beyond measure,

Our Heavenly treasure.

We are the body of Christ

With the God given rights,

Not to stray, but to stay

In His truth, so we pray.

Jesus, the head of the body,

Which is His Holy Church.

As believers we are the body

Together we are His Church.

This is where we  share 

In faith with one another,

And where we learn to care

For a lost sister or brother.

With Jesus we are one.

And together we are one.

And before the day is done,

We find, “To Gather We Are One.”

THE BACK STORY:  For a number of years, too many to mention (maybe 30), I suffered from a series of mini-strokes.  Most times it was a visit to the ER and after a few hours, back home.  The cause was not found.  About 15 years ago I started hearing a voice in my head,  It had a name, Baxter.  Oh, he was a character, stuttering to say a word and coming out with another word meaning the same thing.  Some people thought he was funny.  Me, I liked collaborating with him on his stories.  Over the years some of his friends joined him, including his Dad.  Odd thing, for the last 8 years of so I have not experienced a mini stroke.  MRIs until the last few years still showed signs of having had mini strokes.  Lately, all is clear.  My thoughts on this: the boys have needed the extra room since there are 6 of them, so they cleaned it out and remodeled my brain.

A couple of years ago one of my daughters had a t-shirt made up for me with a phrase about Papa on it.  I asked her is she would have one done for “Team Baxter.”  The back of the shirt has their names:  Baxter, Kermit (Baxter’s Dad whose girlfriend Lilly has a pad in a pond,) Les the Newsman, Fernando, The Other Guy, and Gullible Gil (formerly Gus, not Gil).  On the front of the shirt I had her put “2GETHER WE ARE 1.  A few weeks ago I wore the shirt to church.  One of the greeters at the door read the front of the shirt and thought the words were perfect for church.  I guess I need to have another shirt made without the boys on the back. They will just have to accept that they are not always in charge of my brain or number 1 in my life.

Today I read Paul’s letter to the Colossians, which made me think of some recent sermons at church.  Anyway, this is the result of my desire to write about together in church we are one, one with Jesus.

If you read the Back Story, you have my sympathy and heartfelt thanks.

Tim, 7:39 pm



Yes, I’m a hermit

Just ask my friend Kermit

But I still like to get out

At times and shout

With screams of laughter

Just ask my friend Baxter

And there other times I try

To avoid the fish fry

Just ask the other guy

Or my wife

If you like

I express my views when I can

Just ask ask Ned the Newsman

And at times I have nowhere to go

Again ask my friend Fernaaaaando

I don’t want to make a fuss

Unless you want to meet Gullible Gus

More Discussion:


Dear Heavenly Father we come to you in prayer as we end today’s podcast.  Dave and I thank You for Your leading us through the day and into tomorrow.  We pray that today has been pleasing to You and and to our listeners and viewers.

We pray for our listeners and viewers; for their needs; physical healing, emotional healing and the salvation of those who have not yet accepted the gift of Your grace by faith. 


We pray, Lord, for this world in which we live.  Father, as Christians lead us to proclaiming the gospel where ever we are.  May we do so in a loving  way.  Lead us to the truth of the days we are living in.  We pray for the nation of Ukraine and its people; its leaders, those who have fled the country to find safety, those who stayed behind and those who are fighting the invading army of their enemy.   May their faith and determination be an example to the entire world.

Dear Lord, prepare us and our listeners and viewers for the coming week.  We pray that it is You we live for and You who leads us.  As we walk with you  this week, may it be Your hand clasped around our hand so we may feel the grasp of Your love.

We pray in the name of Jesus, our Savior and Redeemer.  Amen    (10/10/22)
