    Intention Done

    It is quiet except for the windchimes gently singing in the backyard. The sky is blue. Leaves on the trees are a myriad of colors – everything from burnished gold to bittersweet orange. It is stunning against the sapphire blue backdrop of the Texas sky. God’s handiwork in plain sight. And in these moments my heart is lifted to the…

    Moving Toward Thanks

    Tomorrow will be November, the beginning of the 11th month of the calendar year. And what a year!

    Kindness & Charity

    Aren’t these unusual times in which we are living? King Solomon told us “there is nothing new under the sun.” That must be, because rumor has it he was the wisest man who ever lived- but some of the things that are happening just now seem unpleasantly new. And frankly, I wish they would go away. So, I got thinking…
