The Day After Easter

It's the day after Easter. A day like any other day. Except what if it's not? What if I woke up today and saw the world as enchanted? Gave God a wink abiding in the soul of me. What if I unfurled my tight grip, and welcomed, actually begged God...

The Thinker

Henri Nouwen says, "Home is the place you can hear God's voice calling you the beloved." To live soulfully is to be aware of and confess our shortcomings. Too easily our pride can eclipse our truth-telling soul, separating us from the better part of ourselves. The reality is we are...

Lenten Invitation

This season of Lent, wherever it finds you, is an invitation to stop and check your coordinates: Are you on the right path? How closely does your exterior life mirror the priorities and longings of your heart? Who directs your steps: ego or soul? How much peace do you have?...

Beloved, If I could ask of You one thing, what would it be? To see into the future Or maybe to return again the way from which I came. A peek at Your Love Plan, Or to shadow a day-in-the-life of the great I AM. Answers would be nice, to Life's impossible questions— The truth of Time, And...

Raindrop Baptism

This morning began quite ordinary, as miracles do. A walk in the emerald wood. Until the skies opened And the Spirit revealed Herself swathed in the wind. A squirrel, a pair of chipmunks and a bluejay stopped what they were doing and sat in rapt attention As I received my raindrop baptism. How quickly the ordinary...
