Two weeks ago a man in his late twenties approached me. “Do you have any loose change?”  “This is the third time in a month that you have approached me,”  said I. I will give you something on one condition – tell me about yourself and what is going on in your life. I bought … [Read more…]

A few weeks ago one Sunday , I remember Rev. Jane preaching about
 Jesus’ encounter with the prostitute Samaritan woman at the well. And I said
 to myself, wow, the bible is truly an amazing book. Each time I listen or
 read this passage, I get a new revelation. Jesus was so forgiving, so

Throughout the years I just went along my busy life holding God in my heart. … [Read more…]

After a walk this morning, we had a great breakfast.  Later, I read two fine things.  The first was by Tracy Letts, author of the Tony-winning “August: Osage County.”  He wrote about his play, “I was committed to finish the work.”  Not to write a great play, or even just to do some good writing, … [Read more…]

When I feel close to God, I am at my house in the garden.  I walk over to my favorite spot and wait.  Then the birds come down like angels from heaven.  They circle around me reassuring me that everything is perfect.  As they circle around me, God is hugging me his warmest hug.  They … [Read more…]
