• A Promise Kept

    Another Easter Sunday, a glorious celebration of a promise kept- the most glorious promise of all time. A promise of redemption and restoration, of salvation and cleansing from sin. And ultimately, a promise that death would be defeated by the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia! We live […]

  • Resurrection Eve

    This Saturday we anticipate the arrival of Easter. The glory of the resurrection is celebrated by believers every single day- and especially on Easter. But today is Saturday. The crucifixion is over. The body of our Lord is in a borrowed tomb. What do we do with Saturday? Saturday is the day that our faith […]

  • Good Friday: He Bowed His Head and Gave

    He bowed His head, and gave up His spirit. Read carefully these words written by John. Jesus gave up His spirit. He wasn’t killed by the executioners. He gave His life. The last breath of the Incarnate God was a choice that He made. At any moment He could have ended it all. He could […]

  • Maundy Thursday: A New Commandment

    This was it. The final time Jesus and His disciples would be together before Calvary. They spent the evening in the Upper Room, observing the Passover meal together. Maundy Thursday, the Thursday before Easter, is when we remember Jesus washing the disciples feet. It is in this act that Jesus gives us an example of […]

  • Holy Wednesday: Something Mary Knew

    When was the moment in your life when you felt the loneliest? I think most of us can point to a place in our memory where we felt abandoned and alone, maybe a little afraid. I think Wednesday before Calvary was one of those moments in Jesus’ life. He knew what was ahead of Him, […]

  • Holy Tuesday: Almost There

    “You are not far from the Kingdom of God.” These are the words that Jesus spoke to a scribe who questioned Him on His last Tuesday before Calvary. Jesus was again in the Temple in Jerusalem. It was fitting that He would be there. The Temple was the building God had established as the earthly […]

  • Holy Monday: A Healthy Soul

    Tracing Jesus’ footsteps during this week before the cross is a meaningful exercise. We know the significance of last things. We tend to remember last things with nostalgia and a sense of importance. We try to mark the end of things with memorable events- whether it’s the last day we spend in the house where […]

  • 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 […]

  • The Tyranny of the Fit-Bit

    My Fit-Bit is a tyrant. There. I’ve said it. I’ve needed to get that off my chest for awhile now and it feels good to finally get it out. I’ve used Fit-Bits for about ten or so years, and for the most part, they are pretty motivating. Especially when I changed to a more sedentary […]

  • Fifty-three

    Guess what! Today begins the year I have been waiting for since childhood. Today is my fifty-third birthday!! Why, you ask, is that such a significant milestone? Because, today I am finally the same age as The Grinch! Okay, so in the spirit of being perfectly transparent, I didn’t actually take note of Mr. Grinch’s […]
