Be Quiet

Quiet, very few days are quiet around here (especially lately with some major tree trimming). The sky is clear blue and a soft breeze tickles limbs with green shoots appearing. In Florida, spring is underway. A theme I find in various places throughout the… Continue Reading “Be Quiet”

The Highest

Four days before the world pauses and celebrates. There aren’t many silent nights in our world – so much heartache and anxiety. Choruses of Joy to the World or We Wish You A Merry Christmas aren’t ringing out in many public venues these days.… Continue Reading “The Highest”

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”

Revolution

Today I am watching an everchanging landscape – mountains disappear and reappear as Smoky Mountain mist twirls up from the ground and descends from the clouds. It’s peaceful. A beautiful mystery of creation that at once enshrouds and then lays bare a beautiful landscape.… Continue Reading “Revolution”

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?”

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…”

Heart Filler…

When I first became a Christian everything about this new life was new to me. I didn’t know much, really anything, about the Bible. I didn’t know Christian songs. I knew little about praying. I certainly didn’t know anything about the Holy Spirit –… Continue Reading “Heart Filler…”

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?”

For the Joy…

Caught in joy – that moment after working for months on a project, it’s finished, and you get the big check or promotion. That moment after training for months on end and you complete the race in record time. That moment after going through… Continue Reading “For the Joy…”
