Let me count the ways
While strolling through the mall I chatted with one of the security staff and mentioned to him that one of the "parking lot regulars" had accidently dumped his load of cans and bottles. His response both surprised and blessed me, wishing now I'd gone over and helped pick up the mess. Read more...

Community
In conversation with friends who've also lived in small communities, we've shared stories and chuckles. "Everybody knows everybody's business," was one remark, "and what they don't know", added another, "they make up." We had a good laugh about that quip, knowing full well that it's true. Case in point: one of the first rumors I heard about ourselves after moving to a very small town went like this: "They've got two boys." True. What wasn't true, however, was the pronouncement that they were adopted. Read more...

Kept from falling
Most mornings I find myself humming some of the old hymns; this morning, Nearer My God to Thee, popped into my head. As I mused on the words, I noted that the movement seemed to indicate my moving nearer to Him. "Yes," I told myself, "that's what I want to do, I long to move ever closer to the Lord." Read more...

Over a cup of tea
As sometimes happens, I was struggling to find a topic for this week's article and partly out of desperation, I decided to get out of the house in order to have some "idle" time to meditate.

It's still green below
It's no secret that this winter has been brutal, even here on the West Coast. Perhaps a better way of expressing it is, especially here on the West Coast. We've been buried in snow, and for those of us who have still dared to go out for anything beyond necessary duties, we've been wrapped in layers of clothes. There's been a run on cleats in at least one of the local stores as we've tried to adapt our year-round walking shoes to the icy conditions. Last week even that didn't help me as I found myself lying face-down on the street outside our home. Fortunately, I had only enough cuts and bruises to elicit sympathies and opportunities to tell my story but the saddest of it all, is that we've lost our bragging rights. Read more...

It's cold out!
"Baby, it's cold outside". Written in 1944 by Frank Loesser, and popularized by Dean Martin and Marina McBride, the message it contains isn't the one I'm trying to convey this week but the description of the weather is bang on. Whether here or across North America, it's cold outside! Read more...

Grace where you least expect it
If only I could figure them out. Leviticus. Crossword puzzles. Life. Read more...
