2nd Cup of Coffee, 8/15/19: CAN I DRIVE?
Sunday morning we were singing: “We fall down, we lay our crowns, at the feet of Jesus The greatness of mercy and love, at the feet of Jesus And we cry, “Holy, holy, holy…” We cry, “Holy, holy, holy…” We cry, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lamb.” The setting is There. We who have walked with … Continue reading
2nd Cup of Coffee for 10/19/17: 4 WAYS TO PUT SOME PUNCH IN YOUR LOVE LIFE
Readers make the best writers. I’ve read that. When you read a lot of the good, challenging, uplifting kind of stuff, you can’t help being helped by it. I read this morning: “Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly.” ~ 1 Corinthians 13:13, The Message “In the end, only three things matter: how much … 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
QTMs for 1/19/17: BBAR!
I woke up this morning. I breathed freely, got up without pain, did all the morning things without thinking about it. I’m walking, seeing, hearing, thinking.

100-Word Stroll, 9/24/16: THAT AIN’T NURTURAL

We wrote complete sentences and dared not try substituting single vowels for words. We tended to think more and deeply because we refused to allow life’s pace to become a headlong rush toward tomorrow. … Continue reading
WHEN LAST HE BREATHED – A Granger Story
I sat quiet on the mossy marled bluff overlooking Grassy Lake, sipping strong, hot pinon coffee from the thermos I’d brought with me and concentrating on my breathing. I listened to the breeze whispering to me of my friend. I thought again of the odd thing he’d said as we spoke by phone just an hour or so before … 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 8/25/15: OH, YES, YOU ARE. *
“I don’t mean that much to anybody. Outside my immediate family, no one knows or cares who I am. Not even all of them do. Very little I’ve tried to do with my life has improved anyone else’s. I could quietly disappear and other than irritation that things weren’t getting done it would make no difference. In … Continue reading
