  • Misery can be safe haven that is hard to let go

    I spent this past weekend feeling sad.
    The reason isn’t important — actually, there really wasn’t a reason other than I just felt like being sad, and so I was.
    I called my sister to tell her that I was sad, but she was at her granddaughter’s soccer game and didn’t answer her phone, which made me even sadder.
    I would’ve told my husband I was sad, but he would just tell me all the reasons I have not to be sad or he’d give me a pep talk, which is not the proper response to sadness, in my opinion.

  • Early November - the holiday season approaches

    Unless we host the Thanksgiving meal, we may give little thought to its preparation. Even when we do think about it, our thoughts may not extend far beyond our own shopping, cooking, cleaning and serving. Yet, a holiday meal encompasses so much more.
    People in the poultry industry raise the turkeys. Bakers prepare breads, rolls, pies and cakes.
    Vegetables depend on farmland and farmers for cultivation, harvesters for harvesting, packers and truckers for packaging and hauling.

  • Crossover moment to becoming a Christian

    I love a good conversion story, that moment or series of moments that lead up to a person going from not belonging to Jesus to belonging to him.
    I remember telling my friend Mike that it was like getting married. Either you are or you aren’t. I told him you can think you’re married, say you’re married, live with another person as if you’re married, but unless you’ve signed the marriage license and said, “I do,” you’re not married.

  • Everyone is a “millennial”when it comes to God

    Since last year I’ve gotten three new podmates at work, all millennials (those born in the 1980s to the early 2000s).
    One just turned 30, one just turned 27 and one, at 22, is younger than my favorite denim jacket that I still wear.
    I call them my pod kids and they call me their pod mom.
    Of the three, the 30-year-old, was horrified to learn that she is a millennial. She had me watch a “Millennials in the Workplace” You Tube video that hilariously portrayed her generation as, among other things, always expecting a reward for doing their job.

  • Hope, like light, scatters the darkness

    The other morning I ate breakfast in the moonlight.
    The temperature outdoors was several degrees cooler than the temperature indoors, so I took my bowl of Cinnamon Chex/Fiber One with unsweetened almond milk and my cup of coffee, opened the sliding glass door that separates the living room from the back screened-in porch and sat at the high-top tile table.
    It was early — I’m a ridiculously early riser — and it was still dark out except for a sliver of a moon.

  • A confession of love for, fear of the confessional

    Several times a week I pass a church that has a sign board out front advertising confessions on Saturdays.
    I confess that when I was a kid I went to a church that had confession booths, only I thought behind the dark wooden doors was either a broom closet or it was where they kept the devil.
    Kids think crazy things, don’t they?
    When I was 7 or so I got to go behind the wooden doors and confess my sins, which mostly consisted of being mean to my sister and brothers and disobeying my parents.
