Reverse It

I consider myself a good speller. When I run spell-check on these blog posts, I count it as a small victory when a message box pops up that says, “No writing errors found.” (Lame, I know, but it’s the little things that make me happy.) Occasionally, however, I type a word that is spelled correctly, but in fact Continue Reading…

The Straight Path

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3:5,6 NIV Nowhere does the text imply that straight is synonymous with easy or expeditious. Curvy roads are curvy because they avoid the more challenging, more costly, Continue Reading…

Answer the Door!

A physically deformed young man was living a subsistence lifestyle in the backwater of a major metropolitan area. Crippled in both feet, he was not only physically unattractive but socially an outcast as well. He was prepared for a marginalized life, believing what destiny had given him was all that he would ever receive. Until Continue Reading…

Where feet may fail

  I’m sitting here in the quiet house while Caroline is at soccer practice and P is at the ranch.  I have so many thoughts going on in my head and I’m going to do my best to get them all out and not edit and second guess myself to death. (Not that anyone would Continue Reading…

Fully Convinced of God’s Love

Have you ever considered how different life would look if you truly grasped the magnitude of God’s love for you? This question has been rattling around in my head for the past couple months.  I’m convinced how we live would be very different, if we understood God’s love for us. Our human experience is often Continue Reading…

After the Storm

  Have you ever gone to bed and woken up the next morning to find that a storm had blown through? Not just raindrops on the ground, but debris everywhere. Tree limbs laying in the yard. Leaves scattered across the driveway. You may have known a storm was coming—the weatherman predicted it on the evening Continue Reading…

The “Best” Way To Pray

Jacob McWhorter fell into an abandoned well and couldn’t escape. First he bargained with God: If You’ll get me out of here, I’ll do thus and so for You. Didn’t work. He tried bribery: I’ll give You all of my money. Didn’t work. Finally he said, Well, Jesus, it looks like I’m gonna die. I Continue Reading…

Celebrating Small Beginnings

  Imagine a young, ambitious piano player dreams of performing before thousands in the world’s finest music halls. He envisions lifting his audiences to heights of auditory rapture as he romances the piano keys. But, when he is asked to play at weddings or at the mall, he says, “Nah, I am going to be Continue Reading…

Thinking you’re naked.

I don’t want to brag, but I’m pretty awesome at applying band-aids. And make no mistake, that is an art. Because if you go too quickly and unpeel them the wrong way, they stick to themselves and you end up with a wadded up useless mess, instead of the Little Mermaid festooned bandage your daughter Continue Reading…

What Is Needed More

She sat at the round table, taking her tea; it’s a daily practice of hers. Most days I buzz by her continuing on with the whirl of “doing” whatever it is that seems so important at the time. But last week, I sat with her and we talked of Christmas. Eve is a blessing to Continue Reading…
