Build

  Build That is my One Word for 2016.  I want to be a builder. Build, as a verb, requires action. It forces me to do something. To Build is to establish, increase or strengthen. Yes, yes and yes. It is constructive rather than destructive. My first construction site in need of some renovation is my tongue. …

Books are My Friends

December 28, 2015 Dear Fellow Travelers, I received 2 books for Christmas. I love getting books as gifts. I appreciate the forethought behind buying a book as a gift. The giver read it and enjoyed it and thought of me. It is like a heart-to-brain connection. The way to my heart is through a good book. ♥ I …

Pause

Pause. Hit the pause button sometime today. Between the ripping and tearing, between the selfies and awkward family photos, between the hugs and tears, between the heavy forks and extra helpings, between the hot chocolate and the hot, crazy weather,  between the arguments and “someone needs a nap”, between the re-gifting and the returning, between wishing it …

Impressing God

December 23, 2015 I attended 3 church services this past Sunday. Three different services at three different churches. Are you impressed? Don’t be, God isn’t. It just worked out that I had the opportunity to do this. I kiddingly told my family that if I am in church all day maybe the Steelers would win a tough …

No Sting

December 16, 2015 Dear Fellow Travelers, My travels over the past few weeks have taken me to cemeteries. I have, by choice, spent time walking around in 4 different cemeteries. I don’t go there at night, that would be too creepy. But during the day, I find the atmosphere to be very peaceful and comforting. …

My Michelangelo

The Road Less Traveled

  December 8, 2015 Dear Fellow Travelers, My walk today was actually a four-hour drive on the back roads. The back roads are the roads less traveled. They wind and twist and turn. They are not fast; but they are scenic. They are the best place to view God’s handiwork and just see life. I would have saved timed taking …

Food for Food

Some food for thought.  Throughout the holiday season, try this simple suggestion and help feed the hungry. I call it: food for food. Invite your guests to bring a non-perishable food item. Wrap a box with Christmas paper. Place the box at your front door. Instruct your guests to deposit their items in the box. …
