Fourth Meanderings

Hey there y’all! Happy Fourth of July! Hope all y’all are having picnics, eating burgers and dogs and good BBQ, maybe doing some boating. Hopefully you’re with folks you love to be with! I’m so thankful to be in a country where we are free to celebrate and to worship in freedom! Continue reading



Hey there!   How is everybody this morning?  As I write, I couldn’t sleep and it’s about 4am.  Ugh.  I have a really full day today – an all day prayer meeting to end abortion as part of the 40 Days 4 Life initiative.  Today is our parish’s day on the sidewalk, or in the chapel in prayer support of those on the front lines.  Grab a cuppa (I’ll be hunting caffeine, I’m sure!) and find a comfy spot.  Last week, I bought a house.  While I was in that process, one of the daily Scripture readings was from Haggai, talking about building houses.  Seems like housing was the theme for the week!

Save a Life?

Hey y’all!   How’s everybody?  Hot?  Yeah, me too.  So, repeat after me:  NEVER EVER leave a child, pet or elderly person in a car!  Thanks.  Y’all may have just saved a life!  Now, go grab a glass of something cold and find a cool spot to sit and relax a minute.  Just for a minute, these posts aren’t very long.  Less than a page if I type them up in Word.  Really.  So, what would you do to save someone’s life?  Run inside a burning building?  Pull someone from an auto after a wreck?

Hi there!   Yes I know it’s Thursday.   This is a special post, due to the date.  Punchline first today:  If you’ve had an abortion, or helped someone else to obtain an abortion, you may be dealing with a lot of hidden guilt, sadness, grief, shame, all sorts of things.   Please, please, don’t suffer in silence.   Don’t think that because you’ve ‘sinned’ that God is angry with you.  Quite the opposite – His heart is broken with you.  Reach out for help.  Find a pastor or a priest who can pray with you and for you; let them direct you to a local group who can help.  God still loves you.  Let someone help you see it.     Continue reading

Naming Names

Welcome back!  Glad you decided to come along for the adventure.  We’re still getting a bit of history going, but you will see the threads of God’s faithfulness stitched throughout.

I was adopted at birth.  Now, a lot of folks have been blessed to be adopted.  I love my own adoption story!  Partly because of the people involved, partly because the hand of the Lord was so obviously in it.  I know He created me.  But I firmly believe He had his hand Continue reading
