The Rapture That Wasn’t

Originally published May 22, 2011. It seems that every day there are more reasons to long for our Lord's return. So much heartbreak in the News and in the lives of those we love that is crushing or numbing, or both. I pray that we are driven ever more to prayer as we await our... Continue Reading →

Have Thine Own Way, Lord!

Monday Memories Originally posted March 2, 2016, This came to mind as we revisited this subject in our Sunday school class again yesterday morning. I have a hymn winging through my heart as I go about my several quiet tasks at home. Of course, I can't remember all the words, but the refrain and the... Continue Reading →

Words, Words, Words…

Longing in Exile

(Originally published 6/27/16) After almost three years in Texas I have found a Saturday morning running group that meets relatively close to where we live and runs through a nice area, with small-town charm, finishing at a sweet little coffee shop.  Among these folks I can talk easily about various things that runners talk about...
