  • Holidays... the good, bad and ugly

    Oh the painful holidays.
    Stress reaches its peak during the months where we set aside all human characteristics and common sense before becoming walking zombies as we look forward to the new year.
    If memory serves me right, I think I have preached on the mighty soap-box before on how I think the holidays have become less than what their original intentions may have been.
    So not to make a repeat for the readers, I will try and shed light on the positives of the season and not look down the dark side of last minute shopping and bumper-to-bumper traffic.

  • Give thanks

    My Father who art in heaven —
    Truly, hallowed and holy is your name.
    As I begin to write my yearly psalm of thanksgiving, this my 12th or 13th year, I’m wrestling with where to start, what to say, how to even approach you.
    Not that I’m not thankful, because I am. But I don’t want this to be rote and same —  or worse, clever for cleverness sake. After 12 or 13 years, I struggle to be fresh. I struggle to be present, to not just phone it in.
    Your holiness, your hallowedness, demands that I be real before you.

    * Wilfred A. Peterson -- “The art of thanksgiving is thanksliving, it is gratitude in action, It is thanking God for the gift of life by living it triumphantly.
    * It is thanking God for your talents and abilities by accepting them as obligations to be invested for the common good. It is thanking God for all that men and women have done for you by doing things for others.
    * It is thanking God for beauty by helping to make the world more beautiful. It is thanking God for health and strength by the care and reverence you show your body.
