Lost And Found

Lost And Found

  There is one requirement to being found: someone must be looking. Yes it is true that one can be found unexpectedly or by surprise, though discovery by chance is most common when considering objects: one can find a lost set of keys or find their destination by happening to take the right turn. When […]

Yes Fear

Yes Fear

I know it is ‘No’. No Fear. The slogan is plastered everywhere, particularly on the rear window of large pickup trucks. It makes me wonder why the drivers of said trucks need a reminder and what fear it is they are driving against, but that’s another blog for another day. Those who have heard my […]

When Everything Goes Right

When Everything Goes Right

  It was one of those dreams that was so intense I needed it to end. Sometimes you can wake yourself up from a dream and sometimes you can’t. I was able to pull out of this one but not soon enough! In this dream I was on trial and it wasn’t pretty. The sense […]

Signed, Sealed and Delivered

Signed, Sealed and Delivered

Ah, those colorful doors of Ireland! Whether you’ve been to the fair island or not you’ve seen them in photos, door after cheery door painted bright blue, red, yellow or green. On a fine soft day, a day of lashing rain or in the clear, bright sunshine, these doors evoke a smile. Inviting, yes. Whimsical, […]

Living On Bread And Water

Living On Bread And Water

  Imagine! Just imagine knowing, a deep-down-inside knowing, that there is enough of what you need, and more. Imagine watching the news and seeing the lack in the life of people and society, be it identity, care, food, belonging, and knowing there is more than enough to meet each need without fear of running short.

Finding Hidden Hope

Finding Hidden Hope

  Happy, Flourishing New Year of 2017! Once again we are at that fullness of time moment when one year transitions into the next. When dreams are set free to be freshly dreamed and such a measure of courage overtakes us we resolutely set big goals for ourselves. A time of new beginnings and fresh […]

Got A Moment?

Got A Moment?

Get one! Just one moment, that’s all it takes. Ok, but how long is a moment? Depends, doesn’t it? When I tell a toddler asking for a snack, ‘just a moment’, it can mean seconds or minutes. (But not longer as a child’s persistence won’t allow for delay!) When said to a border guard as […]

Cast Away!

Cast Away!

To tell you I know nothing about fly fishing is to greatly exaggerate my knowledge of the sport. In fact the only time it has touched my life happened two years ago when my brother David and his wife visited us in Redding. Known for its superb fly fishing, the Sacramento River lured he and […]

Finding Home

Finding Home

Ahh, now THIS I know. The maple on main street that always shows off its fiery red brilliance in October. The stone house-turned-country store where one can always find a gift that is just right. A hug around a neck I’ve hugged one hundred times in the past and will never grow tired of hugging. […]

A Matter Of The Heart

A Matter Of The Heart

  Everyone loves a good laugh! The Bible lists Joy as a source of strength, and I, for one, have just had a much needed fire-hose drip line of joy. I say it that way because I was in a setting where many serious and pressing issues were being addressed in prayer and worship: it wasn’t a […]
