Well, bless your heart...


So I’m sitting in Starbucks right now, as is my routine several days a week. However, this is one I don’t frequent, but I thought I’d give it a try. This is me stepping out and taking a big risk: trying a new Starbucks. Yeah, I live on the edge. Right now, there’s a lady […]

Prayer isn’t/is…

praying_man_at_altar-300x212Prayer is not just mediation – stilling the mind and soul – embracing a void.

And yet, He is waiting to do just that.


When humans act like animals


So people are outraged by the killing of a lion named Cecil in Africa. A beautiful creation of God has been killed, with no respect for the inherent worth of that creature. The death came about not to preserve another life, but by callously imposing one “will” over the other’s right to merely exist. OK, […]

"For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal..."

The Day After Father’s Day

I didn't get my card until Monday, but the real present came early...


Earlier this week, my teenage son decided, on his own, not to move out and go to a college far away. We talked until 1am the other night. I didn’t lecture him, just listened. He came to it all on his own…though he has no idea how hard mom and I have been praying. He’ll […]
