The Canoe, a Traditional Pattern


My friend Tobias Gibson, Knife Chats with Tobias on YouTube , has been producing some really good knife pattern videos including some history on the patterns that have evolved over time. I still collect a few of these traditional knives every year and I know many people who do. Enjoy!

So Why Do Birds Really Sing?


And God created… every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. (Genesis 1:21)

I am thankful I have found a promise from the God of all grace that deals with the “long term” and the eternal. I belong to a body of plain people who believe the truth revealed in the Bible. These are the people who believe that God in the beginning made the heavens and the earth and all things that are therein.

VIDEO The Assigning of the Call – The Power of Forgiveness


The Assigning of the Call

We take our own spiritual consecration and try to make it into a call of God, but when we get right with Him He brushes all this aside. Then He gives us a tremendous, riveting pain to fasten our attention on something that we never even dreamed could be His call for us. And for one radiant, flashing moment we see His purpose, and we say, “Here am I! Send me” (Isaiah 6:8).

This call has nothing to do with personal sanctification, but with being made broken bread and poured-out wine. Yet God can never make us into wine if we object to the fingers He chooses to use to crush…
