Coming Full Circle

Don’t you love it when things feel like they come full circle? Even if it is a tiny circle? When all  of the parts seem to come together in some semblance of completion with out any loose ends dangling or gaps or breaks?  It is a good feeling. Probably because there aren’t very many things…

See…Hear…Speak…”Every Act of Love” Matters

Friends, I have a gift for you today. I hope that you will accept it and that it will be something that you can use today and always. I heard this song today for the first time. The words were perfect words…almost like a gift for my life, but not one to keep to myself.…

Do You Have a Minute…? That is TOO Bad and SOOOO Sad

In a few short hours the sun will go down again. It’s a Friday Night…High school play-off basketball games; dinners; movies; dates; passing the kids off to the other parent for the custodial weekend. But it is supposed to be more. Not more in the sense of  bar hopping and booze drinking and partying. Not…

Please Step Away from The Crazy

Do you suffer from this problem too? Would you consider this a character issue… a”flaw”? Have you found ways to compensate? I am feeling more than a little bit frustrated because here I am…almost 45 and I am just now recognizing a BIG problem with myself. Sure, there are lots of other things about me…

O Lord You Are….Who Are You?

In the beginning  God makes the heavens and the earth…the day and the night…the waters and the sky…the land and the sea…seed bearing plants and trees… “And God said, ‘Let the water teem with living creatures,…

Heresy – My “Crime”?

A few months ago I came across a quick questionnaire that in ten minutes told me my personality “type”. I shared the quiz with my friends and family and they confirmed that the test was “accurate”. Many of them had done the longer version and were already aware of their personality proclivities. I did not…

Tater and Treasure – A Short Story

My Own Mother confessed to me just yesterday that sometimes she does not read my blog posts because they are too long. I already knew that! She has told me that before! And you might think the very same thing! I have promised before to write shorter posts…and even succeeded for a little while. I…

Divine Appointment

I am not Charismatic. Or maybe I am. I never thought that I had much in common with people who worship for hours unceasing…and speak or chatter in unintelligible (to me at least) sounds… or dance around and wave their hands or fall on the ground and lay prostrate on the floor. But you know…
