Mid Night Musings

Hey there!  How’s everybody doing?  Great!  Hope all y’all got some good rest last night.  Typically, I don’t sleep too well.  So grab a cuppa something and find a place to relax.  You can nap if you need to 😉    It’s getting late again as I write this.  Seems like I get some sort of crazy second wind around midnight, and get more creative and write more then.  But why don’t I get to sleep?  Hmmm..

I Guess You’re Never Too Old!

Hey there!  Guess what!  This is my 100th blog post!  (Cue the party horns, with confetti and balloon drop!). It will be a year ago in a couple of weeks since my first blog post here.  That’s amazing!  God is so amazing!  Pull up a chair and grab some tea and a cookie to celebrate with me. Continue reading

Why Catholic? – Part Two

Hey there, and welcome back!  Glad you didn’t jump ship after that last post.  I’ll continue the story today.   In the meantime, grab a glass of something and find a relaxing spot.  Thanks to all of you who have chosen to listen respectfully, and maybe agree to disagree.   It’s the same Jesus, so let’s all love like He loves.  Now, back to the story.

So, back to the original question:  Why Catholic?  Especially after all these years of solid evangelical preaching and teaching?  Two years at a local evangelical Bible College?  Another semester at an evangelical school of worship?  What happened to me?  Continue reading

Too Busy!

Hey there!  I realize I’ve missed a post or two lately, mostly because I only have 24 hours in a day, and only one of me.  So grab a glass of something icy cool (it’s been in the upper 90’s this week!) and find a shady spot, or even better, a comfy spot in the air conditioning.  Yeah, I know.  I’m a wimp.  But hey, I’m cool!  (Pun intended, lol.)

So, I’m sitting here, 5 sleeps away from an international trip.  I’m also 5 sleeps away from having less than enough time to get my part done for publicity of an event at the retreat center.  In the next 4 days, I have three appointments, my job at the retreat center, all that stuff to do before I leave- like packing and finding my electric travel adapter thingy, Continue reading

Nothing to Fear

Hi there!  How is everybody today?  Hopefully your Lenten observances are going well, bringing you closer to Jesus.  That’s the point, remember?  So, grab a cuppa and find a comfy spot to relax a minute.  We’re into what the Church calls “Holy Week” now.  Easter is this coming Sunday.  We’ve talked a lot about looking very closely at our own lives, measuring ourselves against Jesus’ standards, and making things right.  Remember a few weeks ago, we agreed to be fearless during Lent? Continue reading

Getting Anything?

Hi, and welcome!  If you’re new here, we have a tradition of sorts.  Grab a glass of something cold or cup of something hot, find a comfy spot, and read on.  Let’s chat!

Today, I’m kind of on a soapbox.  Sorry, not intended as a rant, really, just…  I don’t get it?  I keep running into people who are changing all sorts of things in their lives because Continue reading


Hey there!  Fall is in the air, it’s a crisp day, so grab some cider.  Iced or hot, doesn’t matter, pick your favorite.  Now grab a comfy spot in the sun and relax.

This is the time of year for Halloween with all of its decorations, etc.  Time to put away the summer stuff and drag out the fall stuff.  Invariably, someone will have spiders as part of their fall decor; inevitably, I will start finding eight-legged crawly things in my house.  Did you hear me scream?  Continue reading
