The Love Of God

I’ve been reading the events of Holy Week recently and it has given me new insight into how much Jesus felt he needed to prepare the disciples before his death. So much teaching went on that last week!  I think maybe Jesus was just feeling extra protective of his disciples- time was growing short. There …

Holy Week Devotional

I’m trying something a bit different this week, as I wanted to do a Holy Week devotional for you.  Each day of Holy Week will have an aspect of that day for personal reflection. Each day’s reflection would only take a few minutes of your time (or more, if you have it). It would be …

I searched “the most common things given up for Lent”, and the lists are probably all things you could guess: alcohol, soda, sweets, chips, coffee… Behaviors like swearing, smoking, gossiping and using social media also make some lists.

Spiritual Vision

  I recently had cataract surgery. I’m a bit young for the condition but had the bad luck of having cataracts that were right in the center of my visual field. While I waited the 5 years for them to get big enough to have them removed, I didn’t notice how my vision had deteriorated. …

Give it to God

  Fall is slowly slipping away to winter, and I’m not a happy camper. All things considered, we’ve had a great fall. Nice and warm, just how I like it. It’s hard for me to let go of summer.  Geese start honking overhead, and it sounds like they are warning me- winter is coming!  Letting …
