2nd Cup of Coffee, 7/30/18 – THE NOON-HOUR STYLE SHOW

It was lunch hour, and the four friends gathered as usual outside the Arlington Ave. exit, getting their favorite table where they could capture the breeze.  As they sat down, they automatically bowed their heads in a silent appreciation for jobs, food, and God’s grace. The minute they began unwrapping their sandwiches, Fred leaned in, even … Continue reading »

QTMs for 2/26/18: AS I MUSED, I GOT SOAP IN MY EYES

Me, first thing this morning while showering:  “Okay, Holy Spirit.  What You got for us to write today?”    You don’t understand.  Have you not noticed all YOUR great ideas hit when you’re washing your hair – in the shower?  I started keeping a whiteboard marker over by the mirror, which is the shortest distance … Continue reading »

2nd Cup of Coffee, Nov. 1, 2017: MERE COINCIDENCE? NOPE.

The longer I walk with God, the less I believe in coincidence. There was yet another misguided jihadist’s attack in New York yesterday.  This devotional from FiveStarMan was in this morning’s mail.  I found it solid, timely counsel and pass it along. Don’t Curse God When Tragedy Strikes PROVERBS 1:27 When your panic comes as a storm … Continue reading »

2nd Cup for 8/13/17: THE TOUGH OLD BIRDS OF WINTER

I want to be remembered as one of the tough old birds of winter. I love Spring and Summer, don’t misunderstand.  There’s always a raucous surround-sound din of The Bird Choir from all points of the compass.  No matter the weather, or what kind of day I’m having, The Bird Choir’s always in full voice. It takes … Continue reading »

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

“I’d pray more but I don’t know what to pray about.”  I get that.  Top off your cup and walk with me . . . A long time ago, someone told me, “Pray the news.”  Even then, I paid scant heed to regular news, knowing it would all be off the port wing.  Yet as … Continue reading »

300-Word Stroll, 5/19/17: I’D BE DELIGHTED IF I KNEW HOW

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 »

BLEEDING ON ONE’S NOTEBOOK: “IT HURTS.”

Waiting on God is not for weanies. No personal, private details.  Most are just curious. At present, we are living on my disability and my wife’s unemployment.  Two months ago, her boss gave her the grim news:  the company let 18 people go.  Though the CFO had personally promised otherwise, she was one. They were moving … Continue reading »

100-Word Stroll for 4/25/17: ASPIRING TO BE TIRED.

I never thought I’d consider looking up toward ‘tired’ a blessing.  A couple of you reading this know what I mean.  Grab your coffee and . . .  Here.  Sit down with me. ‘Morning Rhythms’ is a concept I embrace.  Part of mine is to open my arms, raise my open hands, and ask God, “Of all the … Continue reading »
