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”

Never Fall

Playing the memory card game with a four-year-old is different: when he picks up a card, he wants to keep looking til he finds the match. If I pick a card he really likes, he wants me to surrender it to him so he… Continue Reading “Never Fall”

Available

Too easy – to be all about self. Pretense that all we’re doing currently prevents us from being able to put ourselves out to add another thing to our schedule. So we drive on by the homeless man, impatiently walk behind the elderly woman,… Continue Reading “Available”

Unbelief

So easy to live like we believe when all is well. Right now I’m in the all is well – no major crisis, heartache, or fear. But where will my belief be when… When things aren’t so easy. A friend is walking through ALS… Continue Reading “Unbelief”

Longing

We’re at that point: the place somewhere between the excitement of the approaching celebration and the fulfillment of all the plans and preparations. The longing time. Longing, in some ways, to move on because it seems life is too hectic. But really longing for… Continue Reading “Longing”

A twenty-something guy ran out to meet a man at his car. The older man handed him four suit coats – as they walked he said “If they don’t fit, I’ll help you get them altered.” I’m guessing the young man had job interviews… Continue Reading “The Exchange…”

Strong In…

A hurting world cries out ‘where is justice’ ‘where is relief’ ‘where is help’? A son kills his father, policemen fear for their lives along with those they defend – and locked doors don’t protect. Rioters in the streets and rich young sports figures question what… Continue Reading “Strong In…”

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… Continue Reading “Partly Sunny…”

Surrounded…

     A nine hour drive to the hospital. Anxious thoughts surrounded the miles. The sky was already dark pulling into the parking lot even though it was only 5:30. Bitter cold surrounded me as I stepped out. How does one say goodbye while still… Continue Reading “Surrounded…”

Bounty-Full…

     Sometimes there are words we use but seldom consider the real meaning. Bounty is one of them – originally meant to infer generosity or abundance. The root in Latin: good. This month I want each day to find me focusing on the giving of thanks,… Continue Reading “Bounty-Full…”
