We sang a song in worship at 8 am & 10:30 last Sunday and it's one of my favorites. "My life flows on in endless song above earth's lamentation … Since love is Lord of heaven and earth, how can I keep from singing?" Because of the cyclical nature of the chu...

This past weekend was so nice - a warm, sunny respite well before the end of winter. Even those of us who love the snow and cold weather (and I suppose there must be one or two of us …) welcome the news of an entire weekend filled with sun and temperatures in the upper 60's...

There are a couple of things I absolutely hate to buy. One of them is cars and the other one is mattresses. Granted, I've had a couple of awful experiences with salespeople of both of those items in the past, but the sad thing is that I had developed the very thing I tend to ...

By the time you're reading this, it is at least Thursday afternoon and I'm hoping that by now I'm on my way home from the hospital or at least preparing to be discharged following same-day spinal surgery for herniated discs and a decompression of a couple of lumber vertebr...

So I've been really good lately. I can't even remember the last time I bought a bag of cookies at the supermarket. And the funny thing is that I didn't even miss them, not even a little bit. Of course, this is the year that my granddaughter, Lailah, joined the Brownies. Which is a very ...

Not exactly a "reflection" this week, just a simple "thank you." Thank you for all of your kind expressions of sympathy, all of your prayers, all of your cards and all of your kind words following the death of my father this past week. The funeral itself, whi...

Over 2,000 years ago, the writer of Ecclesiastes reminded us that there are "seasons" in life - he wrote that there is a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, and among other things, there is a time to be born and a time to die. It's so easy for us to ...

As some of you know, I spent last week in the Orlando area, and regardless of anything else that you do when you spend a week in central Florida, you simply HAVE to visit Walt Disney World, which we did twice. I happened to have some very old Walt Disney World ...

It was an interesting holiday season this year. Somehow I managed to have a wonderful Christmas despite being somewhat under the weather for a couple of weeks. Actually, if I want to be truthful, it was a little more than just "under the weather". The week b...

As though I had nothing better to do during the last couple of weeks before Christmas! It was the middle of last week when I received a sudden pop-up notification that I was out of storage on my iPhone. What??!! Well, lo and behold - almost 3 GB's in old emails?! How is th...
