Why the Celebration?

Resurrection Sunday is gaining momentum as the title for celebrating Jesus raising from the dead. It is more appropriate and sends the message of what the day is all about. Easter brings visions of colored eggs, bunnies, chicks, spring, etc. Truly, what does any… Continue Reading “Why the Celebration?”

Time is near

Recently I went to a 90th birthday celebration. Like all of us, he wonders…where have the years gone? We are created with an eternal instinct. We know that this chasing after life isn’t quite right. Yet the world we live in sets our deadlines,… Continue Reading “Time is near”

Longing

We’re at that point: the place somewhere between the excitement of the approaching celebration and the fulfillment of all the plans and preparations. The longing time. Longing, in some ways, to move on because it seems life is too hectic. But really longing for… Continue Reading “Longing”

What’s Left?

I love a celebration – but sometimes in the hurry and scurry meaning is lost. What remains (and was there before) is a whole lot better. Chocolate bunnies and plastic baskets are done. What’s left? The miracle and the sacrifice. I’m pondering these things… Continue Reading “What’s Left?”

Surprise…

When was the last time you were surprised? Excited? I’m pretty hard to surprise. Drives my hubby crazy. Top it off with being very practical, so I don’t get too excited about things either. But there have been those occasions – when I was… Continue Reading “Surprise…”

The Right Time…

When the time is right, tender green shoots push up through hard dirt. An egg cracks and a duckling emerges. Dawn’s sun breaks over the horizon. All without any nudging from us. And yet, we fret. We worry something will happen too soon – or… Continue Reading “The Right Time…”

Goodness Grace

Thanks—giving. Maybe separating the words a little shows the heart of the celebration. Not Thanks-getting, but the giving of thanks. Christmas is up in the stores before turkeys for the table are being shipped. We barely breathe in the aroma of our favorite foods before we… Continue Reading “Goodness Grace”
