100-Word Stroll, 6/13/17: I’VE GOTTA BE MEME

“If you are reading this . . .” That’s as strange as, “If you’re here, and—”  Grab your coffee and walk with me. The meme that began that way continued:  “May God remove your pain, worries, and problems and replace them with health, happiness and peace.”  That’s sweet.  With respect, however, the one thing we most do … Continue reading »

QTMs for 4/19/17: WORDS ON THE CREASED PAGE

Titles need to reach out and grab you. Either they need to be jazzed-cool enough so you feel awkward if you don’t read after them.  Or they need to be so pointed, even edgy, that they sink puppy teeth into your thoughts. You’re still reading, so this one must be just weird enough that it … Continue reading »

Time Trials, 3/21/17: IT WAS NOT PRETTY

“. . . so I start down the path.” The phrase from a dear friend’s message caught my eye.  As I reread it, I thought, Isn’t that how a lot of things in this life begin? You’d think writing about my unusual story of healing would be a joy-filled, swift thing.  Simple.  Bite or two of cake.  Nothing to … Continue reading »

Q(uiet) T(ime) M(usings), 12/21/16: WHADDYA MEAN IT NEEDS BATTERIES?

Three phrases that sum up Christmas are: Peace on Earth; Goodwill to Men; and Batteries Not Included. I remember when the toys and games we received at Christmas needed no batteries or power cords.  They came complete with the most impressive, awe-striking, exhaustless power source ever created: Our own imagination. We weren’t limited only to the … Continue reading »

100-Word Stroll, 9/23/16: CAN’T WAIT TO MEET RALPH

Ralph’s my longsuffering GA.  He’s no cute, pudgy little androgynous munchkin often portrayed in art.  Hunh-uh.  Not Ralph. I’m unsure how guardian angels are matched with their Earthly charges, but I’m guessing that short meeting with God produced a facepalm.  Ol’ Ralph apparently drew the short straw when God called him aside. “Your mission, should … Continue reading »

100-Word Stroll for 9/8/16: . . . AND YOU WON’T BELIEVE—

You wouldn’t believe the “YOU-WON’T-BELIEVE”s I’ve clicked on. You, too?  Well, you clicked on this one, right?  I know.  Shameless.  Right up there with “YOU’LL SEE WHY”.  Uh-hunh.  Grinning.  You’ve clicked on that one, too.    John wrote about overcoming at least seven times in a row.  Paul wrote a lot about being an overcomer.  George … Continue reading »

100-Word Stroll: SO THAT’S WHAT IT FEELS LIKE…

” ‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, and grace will lead me home.” (John Newton) “Peace is what grace feels like when you put it on.”  (J.K. Warrick) Around the Boone home we jokingly have adopted this as our corporate motto: IF IT WAS EASY, ANYBODY COULD DO IT. It’s our way of … Continue reading »
