To paraphrase the prophet Amos, I’m not a writer nor a son of a writer (Amos 7:14). But I want to give voice to impressions the Scripture makes on me as I walk the path of life, cf. Proverbs 10:17.
So I write this blog, illustrating my own steps along that path to the ultimate reality, “holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain.” Philippians 2:16 This life, this world, what we see and hear, seems to indicate to most that there is nothing else. That this is the reality. This is all there is. But that is not true. There is another reality, an ultimate reality. And that is seen clearly in Scripture. So from the Word I write to the world to attempt to illuminate this more excellent way.
I’ve written a few web sites found at John J Schneider.com. Having survived the Sixties and Seventies I escaped the frozen Michigan tundra at the end of the last century and now reside in Savannah Georgia with my artist wife Melissa of a few decades and our 3 amazing cats, and dream of retirement in the Caribbean.
The photo on top of this site was shot by Melissa in 2010 and is the entrance driveway to the Tomotley Plantation near Beaufort, South Carolina showing the rows of beautiful, old Angel Oak trees.
