100-Word Stroll, 5/4/17: THE #1 WAY NOT TO START YOUR DAY

“Don’t go out into the world with an empty soul”  It stopped me.  Grab some coffee and walk with me . . . You don’t barge into a random home unannounced. take off on a road trip with a gallon in the tank. jump and go “HARARR!” at somebody’s big dog. put a sign in your yard reading, “DUMP ALL … Continue reading »

2nd Cup for 4/24/17: 11 THINGS I LEARNED FROM A JIGSAW PUZZLE

Don’t force a fit.  Not only will the piece not fit right; it won’t fit where it belongs, either.  If something is meant to be, it will come together. When things aren’t going so well, take a break.  Things will look different when you return. Be sure to look at the big picture.  Getting hung … Continue reading »

100-Word Strolls for 8/20/16: NOT SO FAST, THERE, BUB

The meme reads, “The devil doesn’t come dressed in a red cape and pointy horns.  He comes as everything you’ve ever wished for.  Pray for wisdom and discernment.”  Allow this contrast:  “Trust in the Lord and do good: dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.  Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give … Continue reading »

Q(uiet) T(ime) M(using)s for 7/21/16: I LOVE YOU & I BELIEVE IN YOU

“Life is just a grind.” That’s not just a coffee joke.  It’s as real as stepping on a Lego.  I’ve felt like maybe the grind was becoming a little too permanent, too.  Like maybe Heaven was overwhelmed because this is an election season, my blessings were on back order and I was getting someone else’s … Continue reading »

QTMs for 7/16/16: KNOWING YOU GOT THIS

“Are you leaning into the resources of God?”  The speaker hesitated, waiting for the question to take.
