But time and chance happen to them all.  – Ecclesiastes 9:11

WOLFING down a peanut butter  sandwich as I drove to a meeting across town was not my idea of the ideal lunch.  But that’s  the way it has been these days.  Just when I thought work at the television station couldn’t  get much busier it could. We had a couple of big documentaries to produce and the deadline were looming , in the not-so-distant future we needed to produce in two weeks. My stress level was mounting just thinking about it.

Impatient at the red light that seemed to be taking an awfully long time to turn green.  I reached over and turned on the radio. It was turned to a station, II rarely listened to, because I never liked its choice of music.  This time though it was playing relaxing tune with an uplifting  beat and a hint  of Jazz..  I listened feeling my body unwinding a bit and my grip on the steering whale  easing.  The next song was just as good, and so were the two after that.  By the time I arrived at my meeting, I’d heard five of the best songs I’s ever heard on that station.  I got out of my car with a smile on my face and a swing in my step.

Some might say that hearing those songs was a coincidence, but  I know better.  So I’ll just say a thank-you to God for being there at the right place and the right time, and turning  me into His peace.

But time and chance happen to them all.  – Ecclesiastes 9:11

Today’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman

Author: Alma Barkman

We had scarcely become acquainted with a couple in our congregation when their only son Barry was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor.  Within two weeks, this young man with the physique  of a top athlete was in a hospital for the terminally ill.

At the time, our little church was without a pastor, but my husband Leo had made himself available as a lay minister in case of emergencies .  When the phone rang one evening and Barry’s mother introduced herself, I could sense the anguish in her voice even before she explained the situation “Would your husband please come?’ Feeling inadequate, Leo never the less drove to the hospital that evening and continued to visit for the next several weeks.

One evening I decided to accompany Leo Barry’s mother spied meat  at the end of the long corridor and came hurrying to greet me, her arms enfolding me in a welcome hug.  “Oh she said, “you’ve got; no idea what your presence means!” I had worried about what words of consolation I could  bring, so I merely sat with her, “with no one speaking a word,”for I saw that her pain was very great”.

Lord make  me not underestimate  the importance of merely being there – Alma

“The Battle For The Soul Of America Still Rages”

Author: David Barnhart

Many Christians in America today are under the illusion that the election of Donald Tramp as president have put America back on track, so we can all relax, at least for the next four years.  What these people are not taking into consideration is the tenacity and ferociousness of the radical left and its plans to  retake the nation by whatever means necessary.   If there was ever a time for vigilance, that time is now!  One does not have to have a Ph,D in street smarts to know we are in for a royal battle in the coming months and years.

Never in my lifetime have I ever witnessed as much hatred, vitriol and animosity as exist today.  Intolerance is alive and well in America.  At the slightest  provocation or disagreement, hate–filled mobs rush to the streets burning, looting and even killings .  Reportedly some are being paid to carry out such protests. These of course  are not protests; they are riots and anarchy.  If left unchecked, they have the capacity to destroy our nation.  Leftists who constantly  preach respect  for every body are among the most intolerable  in the country.

On college campuses across the nation, free speech is being redefined as the right to express and uphold only leftist  positions on issues.  In the halls of government, leftist positions have left civility at the door as they elevate rancor  and discord to a new level.  Vitriol and hate-speech are now the norm  leftist radio and television shows. including so-called news programs.

The Women’s March in Washington, D.C. and other cities across America the day after President Tromp’s inauguration was a spectacle of violence, vulgarity and hatred   including the comment  by a Hollywood personality about “wanting to burn down the White house.”  Some leftists are openly calling for the assassination of the President.

There is a growing intolerance  among the nations.  Threats, real and imagined, are being hurled by one country against another, including threats of nuclear proliferation  this is dangerous talk in deed.

Sadly hate speech  and vitriol are tricking down to our homes, families and churches.  The slightest disagreement today is likely to prompt estrangement  from loved ones, neighbors, friends, and fellow church members.  As James declared about Christian speech: …………

” from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing.

My brethen, these things ought not to be this way” James3:10

Later, Aslan apologizes for his choice of words against President Trump. But, it’s too late to cut the mustard. CNN cancels the second season of Believer With Reza Aslan, a series with religious scholar Reza Aslan as host. Aslan issues a statement: I lost my cool and responded to him in a derogatory fashion. I should have used better language.

BILL CONWAY [Former PD/OM KOIT FM] (San Diego, CA) Subject: Texas Boy Retires. Jim, I just want to pass along news of the retirement of Seymour Texas native Lee Douglas who wraps up 13 years as PD/PM Drive at KFRG Riverside. Lee’s impressive career includes WFAA (820/570) where we met 47 years ago, KLIF (1190), WMYQ (FM), WOKY (920), WXLO 99X, KXOK (630), KYCY (FM) Young Country, WCZY (FM), WCKG (1530) and KFRG (FM) among others. He worked with Robert L Collins, Al Casey, George Wilson, Dick Purtan, Jay Thomas, Bob Barry, Steve Dahl, Jim Ryan, Erica Farber, Steve Weed, Jay Meyers and many others. Lee Douglas is a real radio guy, a smart guy and knows how to make his station just sound good. I could not have been successful if I had not his friendship over the last 47 years. When Lee was in New York at 99X and I was in Lake Charles, he still treated me as an equal. He treated everybody that way. Congrats to Lee and his adorable wife Barbara on a great run. Bill Conway

MIKE MARSHALL [ex KQUE FM, KFJZ-1270, WFAA-820/570] (Houston, TX) Subject: Tony Booth. I am interested to hear Tony Booth’s story how he was drafted and wound up with American Forces Radio in Korea. Draftees are sent where they are needed. Usually the army needs more truck drivers than disc jockeys. I was drafted in January, 1962 as part of a large army buildup following the Berlin Crisis in August, ’61 after The Wall went up. After I received orders transferring me to Germany, I just happened to make contact with Jim Wright in Washington who was not only my representative from Fort Worth, but a member of the Armed Services Committee. He made a couple of phone calls and before I shipped out, literally, on a WWII troop ship to Germany, I was assigned to American Forces Network, Europe headquarters in Frankfurt. In early 1963, I was transferred to AFN Berlin where I did the morning show. It was called by the mundane name of Wake Up Easy from a commonly used jingle package. Good Morning, Berlin would have been more appropriate but I guess nobody thought of it. Anyway, I would probably have been sent to a tank outfit in Kaiserslautern had it not been for Congressman Wright’s influence. Even though he passed away in 2015, I thank him to this day. Mike Marshall

Help Lord, I’m Freaking Out!

When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You. In God, whose word I praise,

In God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can mere man do to me?… (Psalm 56:3)

Fear is the untamed monster that rears its ugly head and compels otherwise peaceful people to react in ways contrary to their rational beliefs. Take for example a crowded room where someone shouts “fire!” Even in the absence of flame and smoke, people have a panic reaction and start bolting for the nearest exit. It’s natural to fear and sometimes even necessary. It’s when fear becomes our modus operandi that we begin to filter life events through a faulty method causing our decisions and reactions to run amuck.

God never intended for us to be dominated by fear; fear is the devil’s playground. How can we overcome the debilitating effects of fear gone wild? Psalm 56:3 offers an answer. When you are afraid: 1) Trust in the Lord: God’s sovereignty controls all that touches your life. You are not a victim of your world but rather a blood-bought child of God, a child of the Most High King. The same God whose eye is on the sparrow has set His eyes on you. (Matthew 10:29-31). 2) Worship the Lord:Praising God in worship dispels the darkness, refocusing your spirit and mind on the kindness of the Savior. (Isaiah 12:2). 3) Rejoice in the Lord: The Psalmist asks, “What can mere man do to me?” You are not bound by the constraints of man. You have been redeemed and made a conqueror; and not just an ordinary conqueror but more than a conqueror in the Name of Jesus Christ.  (Romans 8:37).

Don’t let the fear of man, the shift in culture or the instability of world events freak you out! When you are tempted to fear, to doubt the goodness and sovereignty of God, remember Paul’s encouragement to the church; “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39).

Prayer Heavenly Father,

when I am afraid I will place my trust in You.

You hold my future in Your hands and in You I find refuge and hope.

Thank You for Your Son, Jesus Christ in Whose Name I pray and am secure, Amen.

Share Your Life  – All the believers were one in heart and mind.

No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own,

but they shared everything they had. Acts 4:32

When you read the story of the New Testament Church, you tend to get caught up in its explosive growth and amazing miracles. But here’s a component you shouldn’t miss: ‘No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had…There were no needy persons among them…those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money…and it was distributed to anyone as he had need’ (vv. 32-35). You say, ‘If I just had more money I’d be happy.’ You might feel more secure and have fewer worries, but you wouldn’t necessarily be happier. In the Journal of Happiness Studies, researchers looked at what distinguished quite happy people from less happy people. One factor consistently separated those two groups. It’s not about how much money you have; it’s not about your health, security, attractiveness, IQ, or career success.

What distinguishes consistently happy people from less happy people is the presence of rich, deep, joy-producing, life-changing, meaningful relationships. Social researcher Robert Putnam writes: ‘The single most common finding from a half-century’s research on life satisfaction, not only in the U.S. but around the world, is that happiness is best predicted by the breadth and depth of one’s social connections.’ But you can know a lot of people without really being known by any of them, and end up lonely.

Those folks in the New Testament Church got it right: it’s in sharing with one another spiritually, emotionally, financially, and relationally that you achieve your highest level of joy.

Prayer Heavenly Father,

thank You for putting into my life people I am able to share life with.

People who know You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

The above devotion was written/compiled from multiple sources by

Tim Hetzner, President of Lutheran Church Charities and author of WORD Bible Studies.

What God Expects From You !

But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows.

From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded & from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. Luke 12:48

Added blessing always brings added responsibility, so:

1) Stop complaining. Happiness doesn’t come from getting what you want; it comes from recognizing and enjoying what you have. So keep a positive attitude and be grateful every day. Rudyard Kipling said, ‘Don’t pay too much attention to fame, power, or money. Someday you’ll meet a person who cares for none of these, and then you’ll know how poor you are’.

2) Stop assuming. When you see your neighbors buying new furniture, taking expensive holidays, and driving the latest car, does something stir inside you to do the same? Be careful; just because someone appears to be in similar circumstances to yours doesn’t mean anything. They might earn twice as much. On the other hand, they may be in debt up to their ears or three-quarters of the way to bankruptcy or a divorce court. Stop making assumptions and trying to be like somebody else.

3) Stop withholding. Bruce Larson said, ‘Money is another pair of hands to heal, feed, and bless the desperate families of the earth. In other words, money is my other self’. But that’s only true if you’re willing to part with it. Money is like manure: If you let it pile up it stinks; if you spread it around it helps things grow. Money gives you options the less fortunate can only pray for. And one more very important thought: How you see your money – that it is all God’s -and how you use His resources that He entrusted you with- will be asked on the Judgement Day. “I was hungry, did you feed me …… Matthew 25:34-46

Prayer Heavenly Father,

help me be faithful with what You have entrusted me with to do Your will.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen

KEN DOWE [CEO Service Broadcasting #1 KKDA FM (104.5) / EVP McLendon Corp. #1 KLIF-1190] (Dallas, TX) Subject: Note from Frank (Haley). I believe Chuck (Boyles) died a number of years ago. Jim Rose may have heard more news by now. Seems Chuck returned to the Northeast after leaving 1190. In radio, I guess. However, he had a law degree. I had forgotten the two of you worked together. Bill (Stewart) created Chuck’s show (The Snake Pit) after noting the success Joe Pine was having in L.A. These guys were a bit like talk-shows hosted by shock jocks. Eventually, the uniqueness wore off in Dallas, and Chuck was moved into the National PD position. Principally, due to his attorney status. He was a nice guy, but Chuck was most gifted as a talent. And, he had the mental acuity to work with Gordon. But, the creative and leadership roles of the trifecta GBM demanded were not as satisfactory. I liked him. Heck of an on-air talent. kd

I followed Chuck on the air in OKC and it took some time to bring the audience back into the music mold…but we did. It worked in OKC before Dallas. Danny Williams was famous for hiring good talent and then letting he do what they did best. WKY was a very successful radio station.

Jack Blanchard’s Column Recalls Old School Buddy

Jackcolumn2014

Jack Blanchard & Misty Morgan an American country music duo from Florida.

Composed of guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Jack Blanchard and his wife, keyboardist/vocalist Misty Morgan.

And now Jack Blanchard recalls ……..THE OLD SCHOOL BUDDY

There was this kid in grammar school…
I’ll call him Rick, to protect the guilty.
He beat me at everything.
In the 100-yard dash I outran everybody except Rick.
He had the top grade average of all the boys.
I was in there somewhere close.

In the graduation picture, guess who sat front and center.
Rick was Class President, a job nobody ever considered me for.
I was too weird…always making jokes.
I was in the back row looking at Ellen Weinheimer’s boobs.

The trouble is, we were friends.
He was a really nice guy, humble and friendly.
He seemed to take second place to me socially.
Things change.

A few years ago,
I called another school buddy I got from Buffalo Information.
He had died.
I talked to his son and he gave me Rick’s phone number.

I figured I’d brag about my musical career, the Grammy nomination,
and the millions of record sales.
Maybe before we both kick the bucket
I could get JUST ONE over on him.

A woman answered and I heard her say:
“Some guy wants to talk to the doctor.”
He came on the line
and it took me about five minutes to explain who I am.
He hadn’t been thinking about me.

He said, “I went to Notre Dame on an athlete’s scholarship,
and became head professor at Harvard Medical School,
and invented a whole new school of medicine.”

He then told me that his offspring were all doctors,
lawyers, or something equally annoying.
I was just happy mine were out of jail.

He said : “Let’s keep in touch” and I said: “Sure”.
I didn’t mention my music career.
After all these years, he got me again, and I’d asked for it.

He wrote to me once on Harvard business stationery.
He never gave me his home address.
I never contacted him again, but he later contacted me by email.
He was very friendly this time… the old Rick.
He even sent me a picture of us together at graduation.

We emailed back and forth a few times,
and then my messages to him started bouncing back.
Rick has disappeared again.
I have a feeling he volunteered for the Witness Protection Plan
to get away from me.

Devotional: Seeing Your Work as the Will of God

As long as it is day we must do the work of him who sent me Night is coming when no one can work John 9:4

jesus036

You’ll experience a new level of fulfillment when you begin to see what you do for a living as an important part of God’s will for your life. Jesus preached and healed, but He saw it all as ‘work’ given to Him by His Father. You must too. Instead of seeing church as a place where you meet with God on Sunday morning, see it as a place where you’re fed and strengthened so that you can carry the presence of God with you into the workplace. ‘Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him’ (Colossians 3:17).

Notice two words here:

1) ‘Word.’ That covers skills of communication and information.

2) ‘Deed.’ That covers skills such as creativity and building. Whatever you do, you’re supposed to do it with a thankful heart, as though the Lord were your boss – because He is.

When you work with that attitude, you come alive. One person comes alive when they pick up a musical instrument, another when they lead a team, another when they counsel someone who’s hurting, and another when they’re looking at a financial spreadsheet. When each of us is doing what God designed and called us to do, the world around us is enriched. All skill is God-given, and we’re invited to live in conscious interaction with the Holy Spirit as we work, so that we can develop the skills He gives us. Work is a form of love. We cannot be fully human without creating value.

Prayer Heavenly Father,

help me see that the work that I do is all part of the plan You have for me right now.

Thank You! In Jesus’ Name, Amen
