FOLLOW THE LEADER – 5/12/2021

You are the Leader. It is not as obvious as the actual game, but there are those who follow you for guidance on how to handle their own surprises, problems, opportunities. We are not responsible for the choices others make. We can not make anyone follow us or listen to us. We are responsible forContinue reading “FOLLOW THE LEADER – 5/12/2021”

BE HEALED!4/23/2021 Friday

There are wounds in each of us, some very deep and very painful. These wounds can’t be healed by a wag of the finger or a smack across the head or by yelling, shaming, blaming. But they can be healed! I have seen people let go of the grip these wounds have on them. IContinue reading “BE HEALED!4/23/2021 Friday”

THEY DO WHAT?!4/13/2021Tuesday

Do not be afraid. Many times in scripture we are told to not be afraid. I sometimes wonder if what becomes “hate crimes” is out of a sense of fear. We have been assured of God‘s love and we can love others, all others. Offering God’s love to those who are different than us doesn’tContinue reading “THEY DO WHAT?!4/13/2021Tuesday”

LIVING FAITH LOCALLY 4/6/2021 TUESDAY

When I was growing up, our school mascot was the Greenies, I guess as in mean and Green. The school has since changed their mascot. No one seem to know what a Greenie was. Now that I think of so many things that are not understood if you are not part of a particular culture,Continue reading “Forgive Those Greenies3/17/2021 Wednesday”

LIGHTING THE CHRIST CANDLE 12.24.2020

I had to edit this live post because I tried to add music that I thought was in the public domain and wasn’t. I decided to edit the ending while I was at it because I kept knocking the candles over. Shouldn’t I just skip posting it? I definitely considered it, but I couldn’t skipContinue reading “LIGHTING THE CHRIST CANDLE 12.24.2020”

TENDER BREATH OF ENDLESS LOVE; ADVENT WORD: BLESSING

What a gift it would be if we all began to bless others, including those who hurt us! And imagine how it would be if we also gave ourselves the blessing of being loved and worthy to receive blessing. We can bring light and healing love into being or we can project curses and harmfulContinue reading “TENDER BREATH OF ENDLESS LOVE; ADVENT WORD: BLESSING”
