Save, Don’t Save…

When I write something and then close it out, a dialog box pops up ‘Save or Don’t Save’. Two little boxes, one big question. Kind of like when we clean out the garage or attic – save, don’t save? Stuff that at one time…

Free Fall…

Ever actually seen a field of wheat? Me either – but I love the pictures showing stalks gently blowing in the breeze, like a sea of gold. These days machines do much of the work taking the grain from the stalk and leaves –…

8:45am

Funny how we mark things with time – the year of the hurricanes, September 11, 2001, the call this morning from a tearful child “I’m on my way to the emergency room”. The slow motion moments. Moving at the speed of light to get…

Eyes Fixed…

How do you teach a one year old about Easter? The little guy in our life is thrilled to point out birds in the blue sky, search for the airplane he hears overhead, and loves to come up to the base of a tree…

This Day…

Sometimes loved ones are just too far away. Maybe no longer here on earth. Maybe living more than a short car ride away. Maybe separated by walls put up with harsh words. Every now and then I catch the scent of my mom (a…

Under the Rainbow…

Wherever you are – stop – look around – we have it all right here and right now. Why do we need to long for ‘over the rainbow’, when right here under it is where God has put us? Under this rainbow, sure there’s…

Fine Print…

If you loved me, you would… You don’t love me because… Real love doesn’t… We put fine print on love. Only thing is, we’re not the only ones with fine print. A world full of broken hearts begs ‘just love me’. And because that…
