Alpha and Omega

Less than two weeks to go. The end of Lent is in sight, and Easter waits just around the corner. Only today marks the beginning of a new month and thirty more days of this virus war.  I wake up wishing this was some… Continue Reading “Alpha and Omega”

Man of Sorrows

Life looks different around here, and I wake up feeling out of sorts most mornings. Still, Lent marches on day by day, and so do I. Only I’m not going to work as usual, instead I rise early to teach my high school-aged son… Continue Reading “Man of Sorrows”

Glory of the Lord

This uncertain time ramps up my wrestling. I move from trusting God to anxious thoughts of what’s to come. I think about my oldest working in the medical field. The neighbor’s family in California. I wonder if the small business I co-own will survive.… Continue Reading “Glory of the Lord”

The Vine

I have the wonderful privilege to lead a group of young adults in Sunday school. You might say I’m their teacher, but each week I learn more from them than they learn from me. We are a diverse little bunch with much to share… Continue Reading “The Vine”

Immanuel

“Son, pay attention to what I’m saying.” “Babe, are you listening to me?” “Wow! would you look at that!” I spend lots of time wondering, asking, demanding those I love to put aside their distractions. It’s not just about others, I constantly remind myself… Continue Reading “Immanuel”

Mediator

Just recently a friend and I were talking about Lent and she said, “I just don’t get this Lent thing.” I’ll be honest. I can’t always explain with words what I feel God calling me to do in my heart. There are times it… Continue Reading “Mediator”

Lamb of God

I have a confession to make. I love to come to the end of a busy Saturday with nothing to do and watch the newest episode of my favorite reality show. Its a show about a rural veterinarian and the animals he treats.  I… Continue Reading “Lamb of God”

Light of the World

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.  The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,”… Continue Reading “Light of the World”
