Ring Of Fire

Click here to see the QuickTime movie in a new window

Today's song is one of my own creations, Sherry's Kiss as an mp3, released in 2004.

I decided to try something new today on the home page. The Quicktime video above, dedicated to my wife, Sherry, was made with Apple's Motion and iMovie HD 6 software.

I will probably do more with this kind of media in the near future. If you're a Windows user, install the Quicktime Player to view the movie.


My friend, Karen, sent me this information about the Modest Needs organization. That organization survives on private funding to help less fortunate people out in emergencies. It seems like a worthy cause to me.


This next section was sent to me by my cousin, Linda. It is a fitting message for all of us to understand and absorb into our heart.

People Come Into Your Life For A Reason
People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person. When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be.

Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is real. But only for a season!

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.


I've had a great many people come into my life. Some came into my life and then left. They are missed. Sometimes someone reached out to help me when I really needed it. They are blessed in my heart.

My wife, Sherry, is always there for me and rides the waves of life with me. This coming April it will be 34 years for our marriage. There have been so many of her kisses, I lost count a long time ago. I am surely in a ring of fire with her!
