Living the Dream…

Sometimes things aren’t what they seem. Like teen boys putting on a manly persona – one foot still in childhood and the other ready to make their way in the world. We begin life thinking the universe revolves around us. Somewhere along the way…

No End Beginning…

A lazy spring day, long lunch with a friend, the perfect vacation – things we wish wouldn’t end. It’s hard for us humans – endings. Simple things like a beautiful day are one thing but the death of a sweet friend? Unless…it’s not the…

Planted Where?

Not a master gardener by any stretch of the imagination, but I love containers with green and colors flowing over. What you and I don’t see is the spidery roots warm and cozy down in the soil. Drinking up moisture and nutrients and anchoring…

When Light Hits…

Early morning, no lights on yet, I reached into the cabinet to find a towel – the stripes looked dull gray. I knew they were red. Science says color is┬ásensations on the eye as a result of the way the object reflects or emits…

Past Tense…

Sometimes ‘the past’ brings smiles, sometimes tears. Trying to forget, many live on a fast track to whatever tomorrow holds. Always seeking that next best thing, moment, breakthrough. Others, weighed down, can’t move into now. We get lost forgetting that Jesus has already secured…
