Eclipse

It happened again, the total eclipse of the sun. The moon completely blocked the light of the sun on Monday, April 8, 2024. In 2017, I flew with a pilot friend of mine to view the total eclipse in Paducah, Kentucky. I remember envying the Oregonders who experienced a literal midnight at 1pm. To my […]

Get Busy!

It’s me, the procrastinator. If we’re alike at all, we wait until it’s falling down before we finally fix the collapsing ceiling. How about those full baskets of laundry from a month ago? About that business proposal that’s waiting to be written… are you moving on it? Maybe you’d like to read the Bible from […]

Is It PTSD?

What is trauma? How do we know if we’ve experienced it? What are its symptoms? And is it enough to only recognize them? The experts say, no. Knowing the symptoms, experiencing them, and finally, treating them are 3 different things. According to Psychology Today, trauma is defined as a person’s emotional response to a distressing […]

Pray For Me

A friend recently asked me to pray for her. She is living in a way that is, what I dare say, reprehensible to her savior, the Lord, Jesus Christ. She knows that her chosen lifestyle is wrong and is not good for anyone involved, yet she continues in it only asking that I pray for […]

How […]

I Want to Love Like That

The way God loves is perfect. It’s how I want to love others. Is that even possible? After all, I am only human. But I can certainly try. Then I argue with myself that if I were truly born again, I wouldn’t have to try. If the Spirit of God is truly living in me, it’s […]

For Out of the Mouth…

It isn’t what goes into man’s mouth that defiles him, Jesus said when answering the scribes and Pharisees’ questions about why His disciples didn’t wash their hands when they ate bread, a Jewish tradition by which all were to uphold. In other words, it’s not about what you eat or how you eat it. It’s […]

It’s Where the Action Is

“Concerning you, his motives are never good. Whatever good he says to you is only for his good, and not yours. He only loves himself. Remember that.” This gentle reminder from a close friend might as well have set off an avalanche. But I thought we weren’t to judge motives, and how can we? We can’t […]
