The Fog

  I leave for work early on most Sunday mornings. This past Sunday was no exception. It is always dark, but this Sunday was also accented with a heavy fog.  As I drove my normal route to Church, I noticed street lights that I normally do not see. I don’t see them on a...

Light at the End of the Forest

There was once a people who because of their disobedience had been exiled to a dark and foreboding forest. The forest was thick and overgrown. The canopy shut out almost all light, and thorns and thickets had grown up all around the area in which they lived. Day in...

I Love You

I love you.  I mean I looovvvveee you! I think about you all day every day. There is never a moment that you are not in my thoughts. When I hear your voice my whole world lights up. The thought of spending time with you consumes me. My favorite thing is when you reach...

One Shoe

Not long ago I was walking through my house and found one of my kid’s shoes lying in the living room.  One shoe!  My natural curiosity kicked in and I began the quest for the matching shoe. I found it not in the same room, but in a different room altogether. At this...

Weird Days

Last week had a bit of everything.  A funeral, a hunting trip, hospital visits, World Series, kids fighting, staff meeting, football team ranked highly, work stress, pancakes for breakfast, bills to pay, and on the ups and downs go. Weird, right? Actually, it was not....

Unimaginable

One of my favorite things to do is take time to sit and stare at the stars.  I go to the country often where there are no city lights or street lights. When I look up at the stars they look twice their normal size because I can see their light without the interference...

Finding a Way

A couple of days ago I had just enjoyed a wonderful meal at my favorite restaurant. Part of what makes this place my favorite is the service. I never have to wait. As I turned out and began the three-mile drive back to my office, I was upset to find that there was a...

The Evil Light

My drive into work includes about five miles of a state four-lane road that has several red lights.  Most of the lights are understandably necessary and useful as they control major intersections.  However, there is one light that just doesn’t belong. The only street...

Old God

I have had a couple of people over the years tell me that they firmly believe that the God of the Old Testament and the God of the New Testament are two very different Gods. In their version, the Old Testament God is angry and vengeful and the New Testament God is...

The Road

In my office, there hangs a picture of a wooded path that leads to a hill top. There is no indication as to what is on the other side of the hill. The reason I love the picture is that anything could be just beyond the knoll. It could be a bass pond, a farm house, a...
