Slow To See

Slow To See

Old Man Winter has returned to my part of the world. His chill breath blows cold, dropping temperatures to single digits and below. Ground frozen stiff is dressed in a suit of white, tailor-made in heaven. Drifts, smooth and white–glittering like diamonds–fringe snow covered roads and fence enclosed fields. Long translucent icicles hold tight like … Continue reading

Sacrifice Shows A Measure Of Love

Sacrifice Shows A Measure Of Love

Sacrifice shows a measure of love. It puts actions into words. It is selflessly giving of ourselves. It means setting aside our personal interest for the well-being of another person. It shows compassion and commitment to the one we are sacrificing for . In a world spinning fast–addicted to busyness–it takes sacrifice to slow and … Continue reading

Encouragement

Encouragement

Encouragement should flow from our lips. Words that build others up, warm their hearts, and brighten their day. So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11. However, often it’s not encouragement that falls from our lips, rather it is words that stem from our human … Continue reading

Vessel

Vessel

We come into this world an empty vessel. Not pristine and white without blemish or stain. No, broken…chipped…with long jagged cracks.

Our emptiness needs to be filled. There’s only One who can fill, satisfy the longing in our soul and that … Continue reading

Worst Of Us?

Worst Of Us?

Why, oh why, do our loved ones get the worst of us? That friendly smile we offered to the check-out clerk…gone when we arrive home. An enthusiastic “hello” to an acquaintance we haven’t seen in years. A fellow shopper drops packages and we hurry to assist, but do we extend the same courtesy to our … Continue reading

Fight

Fight

Hooking up with Five Minute Friday. Write unedited for five minutes on one word. Today’s word is fight. Fight Does everything have to be a fight? We fight to get up in the morning.

Together

Together… does anyone ever want to be alone? Oh, yes, perhaps for an hour or two, but what about when your alone in a room crowded with a million people and your the only one sitting by yourself? What about when you get life changing news? Or when the wind howls and the snow falls…fast … Continue reading

Happy New Years 2014

Happy New Years 2014

“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!” Benjamin Franklin. I’m a planner by nature and I’ve often quoted this verse, however, as we start a new year and begin making our plans I believe it’s prudent that I add a caution.  All these plans (goals) that we enthusiastly begin to schedule will quickly … Continue reading
