What Love-Sick Birds Taught Me That Will Make You Laugh

Does nature boggle your mind, too? Have you laughed and learned things by observing the natural world in all its glory? You’re not alone. I about fell over with laughter this month watching the antics of an amorous sparrow who was desperately seeking a mate. Mistaken Identity It all started when I noticed that my neighbor had placed what appeared to be white grocery bags over the side mirrors of her maroon colored CR-V.  My curiosity...

Why Dreaming Big is Part of God’s Plan for You

God gives us dreaming hearts because He wants us to accomplish things.”  – Walk with God Do you believe that? I’m not too sure that I did. I’m the one who would ask God to make my dreams come true in a rather hushed, nearly muted, voice just in case it wasn’t appropriate to pray for something big.  Is it right to ask for more, I wondered, when God already gave something huge in the gift of His Son?  I...

Are You Willing To Do Whatever God Calls You To Do?

My honest answer – it depends on what He wants me to do. That’s just like us, right?  We pray to be used by God and when that whisper, that initial nudge comes down from heaven, we balk.

I was one of the millions of mesmerized viewers of the Great American Eclipse last month.  I was decked out with a camera, phone apps, and dopey-looking sunglasses.  I stood out on my driveway eagerly awaiting zero hour, alone, looking up.

3 Secrets to Sabotage Worry

Let me guess…you worry. You worry about how to pay your bills, you worry if someone at work is going to throw you under the bus, you worry about a loved one’s health issue, and you worry about your children regardless of their age.  I presume this is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg for you in the worry domain. I’ll be honest. I worry too. There have been times when I’ve felt overwhelmed and completely drained by the...

Why You’re Not Marathon Training (And what you should do about it)

Marathons are challenging but who amongst us enjoys running for running’s sake? I know there are joggers in the audience and I applaud you.  However,  even when I was younger and, in much better shape than I am now, I didn’t like to run unless it was while playing baseball, tag, or football with the neighborhood gang.   We didn’t run just to run…there had to be an end goal in mind. Marathon training is a BIG deal.  I googled it and...
