8:45am

Funny how we mark things with time – the year of the hurricanes, September 11, 2001, the call this morning from a tearful child “I’m on my way to the emergency room”. The slow motion moments. Moving at the speed of light to get…

This Day…

Sometimes loved ones are just too far away. Maybe no longer here on earth. Maybe living more than a short car ride away. Maybe separated by walls put up with harsh words. Every now and then I catch the scent of my mom (a…

Returns…

Christmas is behind, boxes of decorations will soon be put away, and store music is already back to usual. Is life? We mark time because we are currently captive to it. The difference between December 31st and January 1st is really a calendar year….

The Table…

We’re invited. We’ll be satisfied. We’ll have the perfect seat. We won’t ever want to leave. Banquets or parties can be awkward – what to wear, where to sit, who to talk to and about what. The there’s this: I have a hard time…

No Unbelief…

In Gatlinburg, TN there are burned down dreams and memories in ash piles. A family grieves the loss of a son, not knowing whose anger caused the shots. Another grieves the loss of a father trying to do his job to serve and protect….

Sighs…

You do know it don’t you? You are the joy set before Him, set before Jesus, set before your Savior, set before the lover of your soul. “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the…

Partly Sunny…

     I’ve decided the weather anchors shouldn’t say ‘partly cloudy’. Why not partly sunny? Instead of chances of rain, what about the chances of sun? It’s all how we look at it. The Father calls us to be light, to bring light to dark…
