Thanksgiving Color

The colors of the leaves, the temperature and the crispness of the air make fall my favorite time of year. Maybe that’s what helps make Thanksgiving my favorite holiday. With Thanksgiving you get all the food, family and fun of Christmas without all the stress of selecting, purchasing and wrapping gifts. Thanksgiving gives us a […]

As the Spirit in Christ is being formed in you, grow toward perfection.

An ti ci pa tion

Friday afternoon I became the proud owner of my late grandfather’s Bible. It’s special to me because he made notes in the margins and underlined things important to him. Sunday, I carried it with me to Bible class. As I flipped to a passage, a hand-written note caught my eye. I rotated the book so […]

Catapult Your Life

This morning water surges through streets, elevator shafts, train stations and all manner of places it was never meant to go. Hurricane Sandy struck with a vengeance and keeps hammering the mid-Atlantic coast. No doubt the next few days will produce many unlikely heroes – ordinary people doing extraordinary things for their fellow man. As […]

Become a Temple Sweeper

Become a Temple Sweeper

This has been a tie-a-knot-and-hang-on kind of week. But, it’s been a very good week. I have learned I am much better suited to write a book than to market one. To those of you who do that sort of thing for a living – I am so impressed! Since it’s been one of those […]

Just a Bite

If life’s a kitchen, then God lovingly acts as master chef, turning our stale ingredients into tasty morsels. He sweetens every bite with grace to create a feast we’re meant to share with the world. He continues to take the rancid things Satan tries to slip into my pot and turns them into things that make me stronger. That’s what Temple […]

Walk This Way

Saturday afternoon we zigged, then zagged our way through the after-game crowd surrounding the stadium. Like always, my eyes scanned the crowd looking for familiar faces that might not be all that familiar anymore. Suddenly, like a heat seeking missile locked on a target, my eyes fixed on a woman walking toward us.  There was […]

It’s Almost Time!

Ring the bells! Blow the horns! Throw the streamers! There’s a new baby on the way! The growth process for my book, Temple Sweepers: Motivation for a Healthy Body and Soul, has taken much longer than nine months, but it has finally made it to the delivery room. That magical process of turning digital strokes […]

America Needs You!

My son left his billfold at home so I rode up to the high school to drop it off. I met the principal in the hallway. He laughed when I told him why I was there. We had taught school together and he had known my son since kindergarten, so he wasn’t really surprised to […]

On Eagles’ Wings? Maybe Not

I don’t mind admitting when I’m wrong. I’ve had lots of practice. It seems as though all the things I said about eagles in my last blog were only a myth.  (Thanks go to to my new friend Mary who pointed that out to me.) I’m so disappointed because it made such a good introduction to the point […]

Standing in the Need of Prayer

When my son was a little boy it became quite common for me to wake up in the middle of the night to the tune of, “Mama! Come here!” I’d rush to his room and find him writhing around in the bed wanting me to rub his feet. Growing is a painful process. Just last […]
