2nd Cup, 5/31/17: LITTLE BOY LOST

“One of the best feelings is knowing that you’re wanted . . .” That’s how the meme began.  The rest of it was thoughtful and tastefully stated, but that first phrase stopped me.  I kept rereading it.

100-Word Stroll, 5/31/17: IN THE GAP

Memorial Day ’17 Musings: GROUND CLUTTER

QTMs, 5/23/17: PARDON ME, BUT YOU’RE YESPASSING

Fill your cup and sit with me for a few minutes . . . Yespassing.  You’ve had it happen to you.  I suspect it’s been done often enough that you smarted over it.  Remember the last time you put your finger in the wrong place on a rosebush?  It stung, and the sting lingered. “YESPASSING” It’s an … Continue reading »

QTMs for 5/17/17: NO TIME LIKE NOW.

There is no such thing as wasting Time.  We each invest our priceless moments as we’ve decided to do.  Once spent, they return back to God’s Timeless Eternity.  Time was created from that Eternity to school you and I.  It’s our proving ground.  As such, we’re never merely wasting it.  One way or the other, we’re … Continue reading »

2nd Cup for 5/15/17: 3 SURE-FIRE WAYS TO BE SELF-CONTROLLED

The only way to be self-controlled is to choose the right controller. “Okay, wait.  Isn’t that double-talk?” Nope, though it sounds like it.  You and I were created to follow something or someone.  That’s the way God put it – and us – together. “What else does this craving, and this helplessness, proclaim but that … Continue reading »

2nd Cup for 2/12/17: “OKAY, GOD–WHAT GIVES?”

“Why me, Lord?”  If you’ve ever asked that, this is for you. I know, right?  Your mind darted back to Kris Kristofferson’s song, too.  When it first came out, I confess I had curly-lip.  “Lord, help me, Jesus . . .” That was before I came a breath or two from dying a few times.  … Continue reading »
