• Holy scars

    Posted:04/14/2017

    Proud of his scar from a wreck on his bike, the little boy asked the preacher if he would like to see his “booboo.”

     

    Some proudly display their battle scars while others try to hide them. Scars are descriptive and tell of past injuries or testify to present healing.

     

  • Have more faith

    Look at the birds of the air: They do not sow or reap or gather into barns--and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? (Matthew 6:26)

     

    My cat is as happy as she can be. She comes every day to my door and just stares at me through the window.

     

    Why?

     

  • April Fool?

    Posted:03/31/2017

    With April Fool’s Day approaching and the anticipation of a prank or two, let us remember the words of David in Psalms 14:1, “The fool says in his heart, “God does not exist.” We must understand the seriousness of being a fool. Webster defines a fool as, “a person who acts unwisely or imprudently.”

     

  • A new beginning

    After the bleakness of Winter, a stroll outside will reveal a newness in the air.

     

    All the flowers displaying their vast arrays of colours and trees budding out makes one feel a certain amount of joy and optimism. There is a revival of life.

    Daniel Fusco’s book “Honestly” reminded me that the whole is bigger and greater than the individual parts.

    Hollywood has developed numerous apocalyptic movies over the years.

     

    Myself and others have enjoyed some of those movies as an escape from reality. Some of those movies have a political or social statement to make and others are just pure Sci-Fi fun.

     

  • Bring others closer

    Posted:02/03/2017

    Have you found a way to connect to the Divine? If you have, it probably did not happen in a vacuum. I would venture to guess there were other people involved in connecting you with God. I hope you can take a moment to recall one or two of these people in your life. These folks became a bridge that let you safely move closer to God.

     

  • Procrastination

    Posted:01/27/2017

    Procrastination is a thief of both time and eternity. Both famous and unknown authors have stated this profound truth in many ways.

     

    We live either in memory or anticipation of knowing about yesterday and hoping about tomorrow. But we are in awe of what to do with today. God is always in the now.

    Grasping my hand while making my daily chaplain visits, a lonely man genuinely thanked me for visiting him at that point in his “journey to recovery.”

     

    It occurred to me that everyone is on a journey, from the baby we pray for in the NICU, to patients in palliative care, to the nurses and caregivers who work so faithfully to help restore health.
