On the Proximity of Nature

I can say, quite certainly, that I love nature, but I don’t particularly love being out in it.  I love trees and sunsets and mountain ranges; verdant fields of green and banks of wildflowers; bees, birds, rabbits, and foxes; waterfalls, thunderstorms, and caves full of dark mysteries and ancient rock formations.  Nature is tremendously inspiring, […]

A Different Kind of Bible Study Today

This morning, instead of the usual Bible Study at 9 am, we gathered together an hour later to attend the funeral of a lovely woman who joined us each week to study God’s Word and pray.  I didn’t know her well, but she was a kind, thoughtful, joy-filled woman I was happy to have known. […]

> What is it about the majority of us that makes us body-conscious? As a woman, I particularly feel the pressure to look svelte at all times. Some days I feel like I’ve achieved that goal, but it has to be a cool day because layers are my friends. The hotter it gets, the more […]

Present Focus

>I was talking to a friend of mine the other day that used the term “focus” instead of “resolution” in reference to new year, new goals. I like that; so I borrow the term from her. Over the past couple of months I have been trying to be more present in my own life. I […]

Two Things

>Two things I’ve seen in recent days have aroused some thoughts. Here they are. First, a couple days ago I was driving on the interstate and in the median I saw something flying and bouncing through the air. At first I thought someone was dirt-biking and flipping tricks, not the place to be doing dangerous […]
