Live fully into the life you have…into the person you are. All this straining, striving, searching, securing… And, for what? To BE more? How could you ever add anything to the perfect creation you are? What? You don’t think God did well enough to suit your tastes when she created you just as you...

Sometimes in life we think we need a seven layer cake when a peanut butter and jelly sandwich would be just as good.  We are trained to desire the light and fluffy while ignoring substance.  A boy would rather grow up to be a rich and famous major league player than a short order cook in...

March 22   MATH   “If this is the solution, why aren’t I happy?"  I ask my sponsor in a piteous whine. “You’ve run the equation and the solution equals happiness?"  She queries, “That’s the whole and total answer?  How many times did you go through the computation?” “What’s...

Son
When my second oldest child was a baby he was kind, quiet, very observant and he still is. The only difference is that he has lost the baby fat, his Mohawk is now a close cut style, he is taller than me, his voice is deeper and he has a girlfriend.  He is running track and the gazelle...

Monday through Friday I wake up early to have a cup of coffee, get dressed and listen to some Word. I go to the site Lightsource and listen to a short snippet of a sermon at no charge.
