  • Quarantine Quandaries: The Sabbath

    When I try to wrap my mind about this thing that we are all living through, I have to admit, it makes me tired. I don’t know what to say. When words don’t come, I find it best to be silent. And that’s what I’ve been learning to do for the past 56 days. The […]

  • Got A Minute?

    I am a pretty avid procrastinator. It’s an issue. There are goals I keep failing to reach, projects I keep failing to complete. On the other hand, I am on my second binging of all nine seasons of The Office for 2018. So yeah, I do have it in me to finish something. Anyway, I […]

  • Happy Cows

    In 2009, a study was published proving that cows that are called by name produce around 500 more pints of milk per year than nameless cows.

    I’ve said it, and had it said to me.

It’s about dealing with the issues […]

  • I Forgot to Feed the Cat

    Every morning like clockwork- wake up, get up, feed the cat. Once the bowl is filled, I can carry on with my day however I wish. But the bowl must be filled. This evening, when I walked in the door Fiona Fred met me at the door with such a hurt, pitiful expression on his […]

  • Our Source

    This Sunday is our last lesson in our series of studies on who God wants to be in our lives.  This week’s truth is that God is our provider.  Throughout my career, this is a truth that I have held on to- one that God has used to teach me to trust Him on deeper […]
