A lofty goal

Epilogue: The elections are over. Here are my last words on the matter:  Pray for them, all of them. The End.

The other night I helped clean out a storage area at my church. It was your typical storage room, so full, the back corner had not seen the light of...

THE NUDGES

Last week as the TWR and I hid away writing, I also got a lot of thinking and praying done. One of the things I was reflecting on during those days was about following nudges. Do you know what nudges are? Let me give you a primer. It’s when you’re walking dow...

IT IS FINISHED.

STUFF!

The late Beatle, John Lennon, once said, 'Life is what happens to you as you are busy making your plans.'  He may have stolen it, but it doesn’t matter. My plan was to write a blog post every week. It was a good plan. Then life happened… again. I had to have surg...

Show Up

So, at this very minute I am sitting in my TWR, also known as Gerp. Remember, I tend to name things.  Unfortunately, I am not out at a campground on Lake Michigan, or on the Mississippi River, or anywhere else with a view. I am in my garage. Why? Because I am no...
