Happy Independence Day!

The Fourth of July has always been a fun holiday for me––well, mostly. When I was a kid, I first lit those black “snakes” on our back porch’s concrete floor. Firecrackers scared me when I was little. My brother wasn’t afraid, and eventually I overcame my fear. By junior high, I was lighting firecrackers and […]

Happy One Year Anniversary – yesterday

On February 17, 2014, I started this blog with a very short post about a novel process. Since then, we’ve grown some. This blog has readers from around the world, well over 40 countries. I get the statistics, and I know what you read, and what you don’t. I think, and correct me if I’m wrong, […]

No Resolutions – Just Plans

I learned a LONG time ago, that New Year’s resolutions don’t work. We’re not committed enough to them. And why wait until New Year’s Day, or the beginning of a month to start something new? I’m finding that if I want to change something about myself, I have to contemplate it, then plan it, then […]

The Day After Christmas

What will you be doing today? Exchanging gifts, hitting the After-Christmas sales, seeing extended family, going back to work? Is the “day after” Christmas a time to get things back to normal? Was Christmas Day just another day for you? I’m not sure what I’m doing today yet. I definitely will not be doing the After-Christmas […]

Bethlehem Today

Have you ever stopped to think about why we celebrate Christmas when we do? Because it’s likely that the baby Jesus wasn’t born on December 25th. I believe early church fathers decided to “Christianize” the pagan celebration of Winter Solstice and to give believers something to contemplate and revel in during the shortest days of […]

Christmas Traditions – Old and New

When I was growing up, we had a Christmas Eve tradition of hamburgers for supper. I loved ’em because hamburgers were my favorite thing to eat. Mom didn’t make them terribly often, so to have them on Christmas Eve before presents were opened was special. My dad’s parents were there, my brother, and sometimes Mom’s […]

Are you ready for Christmas?

I’ve got Sleigh Bells burning, a Village Candle, to put me in mind for Christmas. Our authentic silver tree with blue balls is up in our Great Room, but unfortunately we don’t have a circular revolving light wheel that currently works. One is melted, the other’s in pieces. But I don’t need decorations to make […]

Things to be Thankful For – Friends

THANK YOU! I’ve talked about this before a little bit, but I have rejection issues, so to be able to say I am thankful for friends is making me extremely grateful. You are part of that, whether you live in Brazil, Canada, the U.S., Italy, Australia, France, the U.K., and many other countries. Thank you […]

Thanksgiving – An Attitude of the Heart

What are you thankful for? Your home, your job, your family, your health? Those are all things to be thankful for. Are you thankful for your family Thanksgiving traditions? Do you gather around the table with extended family on this day of giving thanks? Do you have turkey and all the fixin’s? As I get […]

Cracked-Pot

We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; let your light shine through your cracked pot. Ring the bells that still can ring, Forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything, That's how the light gets in and comes out.
