Oh how THIS word has been used so often in our culture. Song titles, Book names, & even phrases with being known or knowing are all over Social Media. What does it mean to know something? My millennial son often thinks he knows more than anyone else in the family, yet...

What a wealth of meaning is associated with this idea. It’s a function that’s vitally important to the health & perpetuation of our human bodies & spirits. “Without breath there is no life” per Johann Kotzee.  It’s the very first thing we do as we come into the world...

Enough. What does that word conjure up? It can be both a positive and a negative – “I am enough” or “I have had enough.” When researching the topic, I found there were 2,310,000,000,000 Google hits. It’s been used 102,000,000 times for song titles. I scanned just a few...

I have worked with folks who are dealing with grief for years. My sense of compassion pulls on me to hear the stories & share the sorrows. I don’t think our culture does a good job of handling loss. We want to stuff it, avoid it, & just make it go away. I became a Cert...

As we begin a new year, we often want a complete do over - let's completely forget the past & march on to greener pastures -even if our army boots are filled with tears or anger. It is after all, supposed to be a fresh start, a new view of the clock/calendar, a place t...

This quote from 1 Thessalonians 5:18 used to give me pause. How can we be thankful for everything that happens in life?  I mean some of the events, people, or circumstances that occur frankly inhale rapidly with force. In the last 30 days we've lost a family member, st...

There’s a video circulating on social media, or rather videos as I understand there are several of this genre floating around, that show a family playing a prank on a young girl, maybe 8-9 years of age. In it they – abracadabra - make her “invisible” - and then the ent...

It’s amazing the kinds of statements that can hit you out of the blue. A Bayer ad tells us “a heart attack doesn’t care what you eat.” That got me to thinking about other things that “don’t care:” A lung disease doesn’t care what kind of air you breathe, a fingernail d...

From the time of childhood stories, the mirror has been used as both hero and villain. Yet I surmise that mirrors can be very frightening. (I still get scared when using my 30x magnifying mirror & my face becomes some alien landscape.) FYI, this is why photographs of o...
