This morning I read a quote by Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero that launched my mind into multiple directions.             Romero wrote, “We plant seeds that one day grow. We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promises. We may never see the end results, but that is the difference between the master builder and […]

Today I have a notion to chat about drip lines.             Drip lines are present in the nuclear industry but I am not well-versed enough to discuss nuclear physics. The drip line that I want to discuss today has to do with trees.             There is an old oak tree on our farm near Sherrill’s […]

I think today might be a good day to chat about time.                        We all know the drill when it comes to time. We can’t buy time.             We can’t erase time. We cannot control time.             Time marches on! The only time we have is the present.             Times runs out! The only time […]

Not long ago someone came up to me and said, “Money is the root of all evil! It’s in the Bible you know!”             Well, people like to tell me all the time what’s in the Bible. But lots of times they are dead wrong.             Mostly, I grin and keep walking. It really burns […]

Have you ever considered that perhaps we are going to have to get tired before we can learn to rest in the Lord? Simmer on that a bit. That statement is chocked full of metaphor!             But the good news is that there is grace in weariness. What if…what if in our weariness we learned […]

Today I want to talk about feet.           The funny thing about feet is that we customarily take them for granted until they do not work correctly anymore.  And, I had my first inkling of this not working correctly anymore part last April.           Today I am in that window of time when I can […]

I think I may have a crazy day ahead of me.  Why?  It is because I woke up this morning with Johnny Cash singing in my ear! Well I’m on my way to glory land and I shall not be moved.           On my way to glory land I shall not be moved. I’m like […]

I think today is a good day to talk about ladder climbing!             Last week, I was outside in my driveway and witnessed my neighbor Raymond drag a ladder out of his garage and place it on the front of his house. I watched him as he steadied the ladder, made sure it had a […]

This morning I woke up with a hymn playing in my head and considered that it must mean something. The hymn was Show Me Your Glory as performed by Kim Walker-Smith. You can hear it if you’d like:             The song sings of old Moses and his desire to see God’s glory. I want […]

Have you ever just sat and pondered the depth of God’s unfathomable, divine love?  It is a helpful thing to do…I think, to consider that God really leaves no stone unturned in order to bring us home.           Elie Wiesel is to blame for this line of thinking this morning.  I ran across one of […]
