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?”

Shiny & New

Who doesn’t love new car smell, new vacation discovery, newborn baby softness? Once, so long ago, all the world teemed with new. The newness was never meant to fade. The wonder was never meant to become ho-hum. But it did. The beauty of sunrise… Continue Reading “Shiny & New”

All I Want

So, what do you want for Christmas? The annual question. I hear lots of different answers – most of the grown-up responses begin with ‘All I want (fill in the blank)’. Then wrapped in shiny paper or draped with a big bow, voila. No… Continue Reading “All I Want”

This year Christmas feels like a welcome breath of air, a sweet sound of peace, a deep sense of comfort. Perhaps things not being the same (normal) for months now is bringing about a desire for what is real and lasting. Although we long… Continue Reading “Above All”

Written…

Easter is a few short days away. It will be the first one (since becoming a Christian) that I have not been in church celebrating all that this remembrance means. I’m hoping there’s a lot less bunnies and colored eggs this year – and… Continue Reading “Written…”

Heart Beat…

Christmas Eve…Where are our hearts? Too often scotch tape and shiny paper wrap our souls. Time to break free and be wrapped – with wonder, with the Gift itself. Instead of wrapping up boxes and details, how about we just give rapt attention to… Continue Reading “Heart Beat…”
