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 …

Beef and Cheese

There is a scene from the Christmas movie, Elf, where Buddy the Elf (played by Will Ferrell) accuses the Santa Claus at a department store of being a fraud. Buddy, who grew up as a human at the North Pole, certainly knows who Santa is and he passionately declares  “He is not Santa!” as he pulls …

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. …

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. …

Doing Double-Time

Double-time: to move in double time; a slow running pace; keeping in step. I feel like I need to be doing life in “double-time”. If I could  high-step, double-time through my day, OH the things I would accomplish!  The clock is going faster and I am going slower. I wake with my never-ending  “to do” list …

The Small Stuff

December 1, 2015 Dear Fellow Travelers, A new month! I have missed our walking together.  A little disclaimer:  I just want you to know I have not been a couch potato all weekend. But I applaud you if you have been potato couching!  If you were able to rest, recover and reflect from a horizontal position throughout the holiday …

Couch Potato

Where did my walk take me today? Not very far. To the couch and  in front of the TV. All day long.  No mashed potatoes, no sweet potatoes; just a couch potato. I must watch the Macy’s Parade. Tradition. I must see the Rockettes perform. Tradition. No wavering on these traditions. Then football. And more football. …

The Children’s Table

November 24, 2015 Dear Fellow Travelers, Remember sitting at the  children’s table during a holiday meal?  You know, the table (usually located in the kitchen) where your cousins challenged each other to put carrot sticks up their noses.  You are stuck there because there is not enough room at the big people’s table (maybe “adult” is a better …
