“Forgive us our debts AS WE FORGIVE…”      Matthew 6:12

Carrying bitterness is the best way to self-destruct, physically, emotionally, AND spiritually! It’s just not worth it. Forgiveness is the best way to cast off bitterness. And I’m not alone in valuing this action:

Psychology Today says, “Mustering up genuine compassion for those who have wronged us, instead of allowing anger toward them to eat away at us, is the course of action recommended by most psychologists.”

“Ask and it will be given you…”  Matthew 7:7

Yes, if you haven’t seen a pattern these first few days, I have been reading Jesus’ sermon on the mount lately and could hardly wait until school starts so I could write GMUs again! Three things Jesus suggests/requests:

1   Ask
2   Seek
3   Knock

And if I do I:

1   Receive
2   Find
3   And have the door open for me

Welcome back! Here we go again- another fresh start- another new semester. If you are new to Union I am the chaplain and every day I get up in the morning and share my Biblical musing for the day with our school family via Good Morning Union. Hope you will be as blessed reading as I have been in writing these for the past 17+ years! I wish you the very best as we begin a new year and a new semester. Here goes!

“Seek first HIS kingdom and HIS righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.”      Matthew 6:33

(You'll hear Him knock.)

Success on your exams today. I’ll be praying for you. Here’s a little break from the traditional GMU


Written by my nephew, Jeff Carlson:

I eat at the Golden Corral like once a year. After grocery shopping this evening I saw the glowing sign on the rainy way home beckoning me. Not being in the mood to actually cook the things I'd just purchased I gave in. I paid and headed for the salad bar. Seriously. It's the section I use as emotional absolution for the deeds I'm about to commit as the meal progresses.

Computer and internet challenges at home delayed, not the writing but the sending of, GMU this morning. Sorry


“Lord, you may now dismiss your servant in peace. For my eyes have seen Your salvation.”         Luke 2:29
