On Anxiety

Maybe you, like me, have experienced those moments. The ones where deep breaths seem illusive. That feeling like something’s wrong – but what? Or anything? In the world we’re living in maybe it’s not as rare as I think. But it’s not good for… Continue Reading “On Anxiety”

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”

Delay Tactics

Greatest delay tactics I’ve ever seen are those from the under five group. Best witnessed when it’s nap time or bed time. One more story, one more drink of water, few more minutes rocking, night light on – no off – no on, and… Continue Reading “Delay Tactics”

Power

Taking a hard look at the world around us, we see that the lust right now is for power. Not that this is something new, it’s just that before it was a combination of lust for wealth, or fame, or addictions, etc. Those “in… Continue Reading “Power”

Don’t Be Afraid

It’s been a hard week – not for me – for the whole world. The plight of the people of Afghanistan is overwhelming and evil appears to be in charge. And, sadly, a country I love, America, has blood on it’s hands for the… Continue Reading “Don’t Be Afraid”

Reset

Time for a reset – so much we can’t control. Evil does prevail at times. Was God looking the other way, asleep? Hardly. We tend to lose focus. We think all outcomes, that aren’t what we had hoped for, are personal. Like we’re the… Continue Reading “Reset”

Declare

It’s November. When the ‘shelter in place’ thing first happened, I thought it would be a very long year. Instead it has passed like most of life – like a vapor. Along with all the Covid stuff has been much more than we could… Continue Reading “Declare”

What Next?

I woke up early (too early) recently and found my mind drifting to insignificant things and becoming irritated easily. Getting up, I sat in the dark – and though it took a while, I figured it out. Anxiety. Whether it’s corona virus or our… Continue Reading “What Next?”

Do Everything…

You can learn a lot from a two year old – about being brave, about trying. I’m not one who likes to try new things. I like the routine of life. Sure, a vacation here and there. But don’t talk to me about eating… Continue Reading “Do Everything…”
