Giving Him Back to God

Laughter and conversation filled the room as we waited for the graduates to file in.  It didn’t seem possible that four years had passed – four years of dorm rooms, vacation visits, exams, summer employment, four years of preparation for the career and future God had planned.   “No, it isn’t possible,” I thought.  “He can’t be graduating.”   The music started and the graduates began to file in.  Daniel smiled as he passed our row, his walk proud and strong as he made his way to his seat.   “Wasn’t it just yesterday he was graduating High School?  It...

Through the Desert to the Garden

The sun emblazoned the crystals of sand.  Any breath of breeze picked up the sand and carried it along, throwing it into my face before swirling it across the expanse.  The heat pressed down on me, and my thirst was overwhelming.  I knew I wasn’t alone.  Turning my head to the right, I sensed a friend.  To the left – apprehension, fear.  I couldn’t, however, see anyone.  Pulling my legs up to my chest and resting my head against my knees, I whispered, “Lord, what’s going on?  Where am I and why am I here?”   I gasped awake.  Sweat poured from my body.  I reached for...

May I Introduce Him?

“I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple.  Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.  And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!”  And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke.”  Isaiah 6:1-4     I can only imagine the terror, awe, shock Isaiah experienced as he stood before the throne of...

Thought Analysis

I’ve neglected you for weeks, my Readers, and I apologize.  I haven’t forgotten you.  In fact, you are the reason I haven’t completed and posted an article or added to my manuscript.  I’ve stared at my computer screen for long periods of time over the past several weeks and haven’t allowed myself to write what has consumed my thoughts.  I’ve re-read many of my recent posts and have noticed a common theme – birds singing, streams dancing, leaves rustling, nature hard at work keeping me cheerful.  While there’s much truth in that (nature does cheer me up when I’m down!),...

Day of Simple Pleasures

Day of Simple Pleasures

It’s been one of those near-perfect days.  Seventy degrees; the sun has shone bright and warm in the sky.  A gentle breeze has rustled the leaves, fluttered the laundry on the line, and kept my wind chimes singing throughout the day.   The laughter of children mixed with bird song drifts through the window.  The pollen drifts in as well, tickling my nose and irritating my eyes, but the flowers that are starting bloom in the garden, and the leaves covering the once-naked tree branches make it worth the sniffles and the watering eyes.   Everything about the day has been so...
