Food You Don’t Know About

I must offer a small explanation for a lack of recent blog posts. Our minister has been on vacation, and I offered to cover for him while he was gone. So I’ve been spending my time working on Sunday sermons rather than my blogs. Both are rewarding and profitable in that it requires thought and […]

Unique

My brain keeps reminding me I’m unique. My pride calls it “special”; the world calls it “weird”. I seem to have this addiction to writing which stems from way too much thinking. I’m told it has something to do with that right-brain thing. Left-handed people are expected to be creative and probably just a little […]

Colorblind

I’ve followed the events of the past few days, at least a little, and felt as though I ‘should write something’. What I found is I had little or nothing to add to the conversation that might carry any weight. We are a people that seem to be intent on tearing ourselves to pieces without […]

Who Am I?

It’s a question we all ask ourselves over the course of a lifetime. Just about the time we think we have the answer, things change and we have to start all over. When we’re younger, we ask because we want to know how we’ll make our mark on the world. As we get older, it’s […]

When You’re Feeling Useless

Today is a bright sunny day, for now. It’s supposed to rain and maybe snow a little bit tonight. But for now we’re just enjoying the sunshine. It helps to offset the negative feelings of being confined to home. Have I mentioned how much I admire and appreciate Oswald Chambers? It seems whenever I’m rolling […]

When Fatigue and Sorrow Close In

This past week has been tough. I thought about writing a blog post somewhere in there but just didn’t have the energy. Even now I’m not sure how this post will turn out. It’s been a week of absolute turmoil, exhaustion, difficult decisions, and sorrow. If that sounds awful, well maybe it hasn’t been that […]

Life, Simply for 2020

I started this blog entry several days ago but couldn’t get the thoughts flowing. I’ve learned from experience when that happens to set it aside. If it comes around again, then write. It wasn’t until I finally sat down and started writing in my personal journals that things began to coalesce. I offer it to […]

Glory from the Ashes

This is probably the most difficult blog post I’ve attempted to write. I struggled with a title; I settled on this one but it doesn’t quite capture the intent. I want this to be a love letter and a note of encouragement to some people dear to me, as well as to anyone else reading […]
