A Day Late, A Dollar Short

At noon today I pulled up into the drive-thru of one of my favorite lunch locations. I ordered something a little different because I noticed that according to the sign that it would be on special. I rolled forward and pulled out my wallet to pay. My stomach sank as I saw that I had left…

Lenten Acts

A year ago I googled Lent because I really had no idea what it was. I knew about fasting, I knew that this was the time of year when the double filet-o-fish could be found…I had an idea that I could “give something up” for Lent. I just had no idea what “Lent” was about…

Blessings for a New Year

              I am blessed to have a job that allows me to meet wonderful people. Many days I get to learn someone’s story and lend my assistance in their journey. One year ago I was working with a homeless man who had recently transferred from a mission in the city…

Hope in a Christmas Jar

              I love my children. All day at work I look forward to seeing them. Even if it is a day that I won’t get to see them…I’m still thinking about the smell of their hair and the twinkle in their eyes. I love to listen to them talk…

Stop Swimming or Drown…

The Functional Obsolescence of the Heart

I live in a 40 year old split-level home with a crumbling foundation and an attached garage. A home with a bad foundation is topic to explore in its own; the blinding rage that a beautiful spring downpour can incite is interesting to say the least.—Among many other #firstworldproblems I encounter everyday—occasionally my garage door…

Keanu moment of inspiration…

Keanu moment of inspiration...

I captured a moment of inspiration today.
A friend posted on Facebook her distress that so many people do not believe in God. Many like-minded people of the Christian faith clicked Like on her post. When the comments began it started as a commentary on morals but then by the third comment everything that followed was tied to politics. After suggesting that it isn’t a believing problem it is a following Christ problem, I actually caught myself getting wrapped up in what I can only describe as worldly fervor. That’s when I had my moment of Keanu inspiration.

I still think the problem is not disbelief.
It is a love your neighbor problem. A guard your heart problem.

Although Conspiracy Keanu is my meme of choice…this problem is no conspiracy. Any Bible student can clearly tell you who was identified as the “ruler of this world”.
