On February 1st, 2011 we were in the midst of a major snow storm and network programming was preempted. My wife was in NW Oklahoma and was watching satellite TV which was unaffected. That day on Dr Oz was a “faith” healer but I would better label him as a “Love” healer. My wife called… Continue reading Love Heals
One of the most subtle challenges we face is patience. A conflict tests the soul and reports the status of our level of patience. With the proliferation of technology in our daily lives, we are conditioned to be impatient… we want it now! Patience is connected to hearing Our Heavenly Father.

The Biblical Law of Weights and Measures requires that you don’t change a “measure” to allow you to take further value from a contract than the original agreement.

The underlying gold and silver stocks took… Continue reading Gold & Silver Position Update

Disinformation is false or inaccurate information that is spread deliberately with intentions of turning genuine information useless. On one of the morning shows, the reporter interviewed a representative with U.S. News and World Report who just completed a study to rank the top 20 diets in effectiveness. In the interview, the word that jumped out… Continue reading Disinformation
Leviticus 19:11 ‘You shall not steal, nor deal falsely, nor lie to one another. NKJV) Yesterday, I had lunch with a friend and business associate to discuss the current business climate.
