Acts of Worship

Hey everybody!   How’s it going?  Hopefully all y’all are having a great summer.   It’s been busy here, but the house project is about to take a rest.  I’m hoping it will be done by the time school starts.  The current challenge for me is to be still sometimes.  If y’all know me, that’s a very tall order!  I’ve been blessed to read a really good book several times in my life, and it has some of the best advice.

Eclipse

Hey, y’all!   How’s everybody doin’?  Hope all is well and you’re celebrating Advent with me!  Grab a cuppa something and find a comfy spot to relax a minute.  Let’s talk about the underlying premise of Advent.  I saw something recently in nature that was a great analogy!  A few weeks ago, I saw the lunar eclipse of the ‘super moon’.   The moon was extremely bright, but that eclipse overshadowed it, changed its entire color and appearance, and hid it from view for a while.  It was quite beautiful in many parts of the world.

We pray for those people who have been displaced from their homes, and the firefighters who are risking their lives to contain these fires, not to mention the wildlife that is being affected.  Without detracting in any way from the pain and loss being caused, there are some positives from a wildfire.  Continue reading

Wasted Time

Hi, there!  Welcome back as we wander along the threads of faith in everyday life.  Grab your beverage, and find a comfy spot to take a breather for a minute.

It seems like we live in a world that is crazy-fast paced, and there’s never enough time for it all.  I once read the statement, please don’t ask me who or where, that said this – “If I choose to spend my time in any given way, I’ve automatically chosen Continue reading
