Thankful?

We say it, but do we mean it? It’s easy to let it roll off the tongue: ‘thanks’, ‘thanks much’, ‘thanks a lot’. And not just to each other. In prayer: ‘thanks, God, for ____ (fill in the blank)’, ‘thanks, Jesus, for what you’ve… Continue Reading “Thankful?”

Required…

Sometimes we cling so tightly to something that it slips right through our grasp. Look at the things we cling to: a spouse for fear of losing them, children in fear something may happen to them, a job fearing another may not come along,… Continue Reading “Required…”

Turbulence…

I haven’t been on an airplane in a while – but the last time there was a bit of turbulence. It’s pretty much a helpless feeling. Either worry or keep reading your book. Kind of like these days. Only the turbulence seems to happen… Continue Reading “Turbulence…”

This Changes Everything…

I was wondering recently: how will we recognize people in eternity? Here’s the reason for my ponderĀ  – a picture flashed through my mind of when I first see the face of Jesus. I could see Him look me in the eye and lightly… Continue Reading “This Changes Everything…”

Comparison…

Things aren’t always what they seem. Today south Florida is holding a collective breath wondering what the hurricane passing by tonight will be like. But to look out the window right now – sunshine, breeze – you’d never know heavy rain and big wind… Continue Reading “Comparison…”

Watch, Stand, Be…Love

It’s hot and Saharan dust is swirling over many lands. Covid still abounds. Hate is marching in the streets. Do you, like me, find yourself sighing – a lot? Man is not in control. We can’t control the weather. We can’t control pandemics. We… Continue Reading “Watch, Stand, Be…Love”

As You Go…

Not going many places these days. A world that used to zoom from here to there has slowed waaayyyy down. So welcome in so many ways. Love that being late isn’t really a thing right now (pretty much anyway). Love that money is being… Continue Reading “As You Go…”

Peace Like…

Perhaps my friend nailed it recently when she determined the reason pressure never seems to let up is that we live in an impatient world. In just a few decades we’ve gone from looking through a catalog and paying ‘shipping and handling’ to scrolling… Continue Reading “Peace Like…”

Rest…

Some nights sleep is illusive. I’m not fretting about anything in particular. And weariness isn’t really in my mind or body – could it be soul rest is missing? In this world, that wouldn’t be a hard thing to miss out on. Just when… Continue Reading “Rest…”

What’s it worth?

Worth. That’s a heavy word. So many contexts. The value of an item for purchase versus our budget. The time required for an outcome versus our schedule. Encounters that cause us to pause and ask: is it worth it? Consciously or unconsciously we weigh… Continue Reading “What’s it worth?”
