The Exchange…

A twenty-something guy ran out to meet a man at his car. The older man handed him four suit coats – as they walked he said “If they don’t fit, I’ll help you get them altered.” I’m guessing the young man had job interviews…

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…

Need to Fill Up?

Merry Christmas – today we remember The Great Gift – may this news, this priceless once and for all gift, fill your heart with great joy! For some this day will go by without any recognition, ignored by those who are in darkness. For…

Wonder-full Plans…

I’m noticing lately all us wanderers. I can’t help but think: what if, instead, we were wonderers? We wander around stores looking for gifts. We wander around outdoors seeking quiet. We wander all our days and what do we find? Emptiness mostly. So I’m…

All I Want…

Christmas lists are being made. Toys, games for the young. Clothes, electronics for the adults. And more. So here’s a prayer to carry into the coming month – a little something to rest in, to rejoice over, to remember for The Gift… Let not…

Have Fun…

Remember your mom calling after you as you went out to play: ‘Have fun…’ ? It’s a bit hard to recall just how that works. How does one have fun when the bills pile high, the workload grows, sad things creep in? I have…

The List…

I make lists. And I love crossing them off. Each little ‘to do’ that’s done somehow is satisfying. But recently in another great book by Max Lucado, Unshakable Hope, I read this at the end: “In the first chapter I told you that the…

Hope Challenge…

Lots of things are contagious – mostly stuff we don’t want to catch. Like the flu or the common cold. My husband used to have a poster in his office that said ‘Attitudes are Contagious – Is Yours Worth Catching?’ I think the same…

Hope Ends…

Know that saying ‘all good things must come to an end’? Like a really good book, wonderful day, reliable product, good paying job, cherished life. There will be many happy endings in this life, and many soul draining ones as well. I miss my…

Hope Grows…

Ever go to bed one night thinking: ‘I can do this’, and wake up the next morning doubting…everything? Those mornings when what you least expected was a melt down – but there you are right in the middle of it? And all I could…

5 Tuesdays to…Hope

Why hope? Hope is so hard to define, yet it’s what we cling to. So maybe it’s time to not only say it but believe, know it, count on it. Today is my birthday – I hope I don’t look my age, I hope…

Security Alert…

A charge to my card that I don’t recognize, a call to report it to the fraud department – not so unusual these days. A world turned upside down wanting only self-indulgence, gain at any cost, and no regard for others – what was…
