  • Yesterday, I saw a bluebird in my backyard. And this morning, I was wakened by chirping birds singing their happy songs outside my bedroom window. A few bright pink buds have started to appear on my rhododendrons and the flowering pink plum trees are in glorious bloom. Spring is on the way and God's miraculous handiwork in nature is all around us.

  • A friend told me a joke the other day about a woman who went to an auto repair shop and asked the mechanic for a seven hundred ten. He looked puzzled and said, “What’s a seven hundred ten?” She replied, “You know, the little piece in the middle of the engine. I’ve lost it and need a new one. I don’t know exactly

  • Every autumn I'm reminded of this parable when I see a pumpkin: "Being a human being is like being a pumpkin. God lifts you up, takes you in, and washes all the dirt off you. He opens you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff-- including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc.Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts
