  • A tribute to Rosie: The joys and sorrow are intermixed

    We have journeyed together through Lenten’s unique suffering to engage in the wonder of Easter resurrection. The joys and sorrows intermixed. We entered a renewed transformation. The danger is to relax, call it another year’s venture and go back to life as usual.

  • Be not afraid are words that fall too lightly on the tongue

    Life has taken many a twisted turn since the beginning of my bout with a variety of major health issues, particularly in the past two years.
    Frustration, a degree of desperation, fear...terrible fear...and an assault on what now appeared to be quite fragile faith. Unknowingly, I had entered the dark night of the soul. It was not a conscious choice, but it surely was one that dramatically changed my life.

  • Arising to fearlessness: Get up and do not be afraid

    I live in a Southern retirement area where golf courses are as enticingly prevalent as the gray-white heads and arthritic limbs they lured into residence. The sunshine, blue skies, and laid-back lifestyle are hypnotic. Everyone and everything moves at a slighter slower pace.

  • The now is God’s present filled with his presence

    Occasionally in Fran’s columns, she refers to “Hubby Dear” as either making a suggestion or crossing over the boarders of her guarded domain. To her faithful readers, I must confess that at the present moment, the end of the pen is in hubby’s hands. She might not rejoice at that.
