Singing In The Rain

Singing In The Rain

Dear Friends,  This coming Wednesday Jim and I lead a pilgrimage to Ireland and Iona, retracing the steps of Columba who lived in the 500’s. I have finally given in and joined the world of Instagram and hope to post there, so if you’re an Insta-grammer that’s where you may follow along. I’d love to […]

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 […]

At The End Of The Day

At The End Of The Day

  “One must wait till evening to see how lovely the day has been.” It is 6:30 in the morning Pacific Time and I’ve just had an evening moment. Funny, isn’t it, how one innocent little movement can unexpectedly stir one’s soul into awakeness and awareness. This morning it was the pool skimmer that did […]

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 […]

It’s The Little Things That Count

It's The Little Things That Count

  It isn’t the chair in the living room we tend to trip over. It’s the pair of slippers randomly kicked off and left where we didn’t expect. And in so much of life it isn’t the big things that trip us up, it is the little things that count. How many times we only have […]

Be Sure You Bring Yourself Wherever Yourself Goes

Be Sure You Bring Yourself Wherever Yourself Goes

  That’s it. I’m meant to be a romance novelist. No more poetry for me, it’s all romance from now on. Well, if I go that route I should maybe start reading romance novels, which don’t interest me at all. Maybe I can write romantic poems. There are lots of those but never enough, it […]

How Do I Love Me?

How Do I Love Me?

Shall we count the ways you and I Love Ourselves To Life? This love thing matters. It matters because we are made in the image of a God who IS love. He isn’t just named love or considered love or has this nice reputation of being the most loving guy in the universe. His very […]

Glory to God. Peace On Earth. Good will toward men.

Glory to God. Peace On Earth. Good will toward men.

In between moving from nation to nation and state to state, I’ve taken time this summer to ‘unstring my bow’. Just as an arrow rests even as the tension is being applied in preparation to be shot out, so we must sometimes rest and relax the tension on our ‘bow’ so we can be refitted, […]

Days Of New Wine and Roses

Days Of New Wine and Roses

    Roses. Red Roses. Red Roses in Rome. Red Roses in Rome falling from the opening in the top of the magnificent, ancient Pantheon, that which was originally built by Marc Antony and Cleopatra to celebrate and honor the many gods of Rome. Talk about romantic. Love is in the air, the very atmosphere […]

Knowing What We Know

Knowing What We Know

Where do we go now? We’ve spent the past few days at the table, at the cross and at the empty tomb. Our emotions have gone from confusion to despair to terror to, ‘will somebody pinch me? This is too good to be true!’ Now it’s back to school and back to life as normal […]
