Happy Easter, Happy Passover


To all those celebrating Easter today – Happy Easter!

And I have a number of Jewish friends so – Happy Passover!

May you be wonderfully blessed during this very special time of year.

And if you don’t celebrate either day, may you also be blessed this spring,

as we all behold the beauty of the earth reborn. May hope live in our hearts.

By the way, did you know that the Last Supper was actually a Passover Seder? It’s true!

The Man You Have Called Me to Be


As I get older Lord God, I am more amazed at how good You are to me

and my family. I know this earthly life is but a mist, rolling in

from the ocean, and soon this frame of mine will be

taken away, only to be given a more beautiful presence.

May I always be worthy of being with You,

and may I always be – the man

You have called me to be.

Walking with the Sacred


Oceans will hold our prayers, as we walk along the shore

breathing in the peace of rolling waves, washing us.

And forests will hold us, safely

in our weakest moments,

until we have reached the top

of the mountain,

fully aware

and confident,

having walked

with the sacred,

that yes, we can trust,

the Divine

with our future,

as we lift

our hearts to the sky.

Our Refuge and Strength


“God is our refuge, and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

Psalm 46:1


Is there any wonder why so many people have been encouraged by the Psalms? Is there any wonder why so many people have faith in the God of heaven and earth?


And the term here, “a very present help” means He not only knows everything, but He is the God of now, meaning He is right here, with us at this moment!! 


Lord God Almighty, You know everything we go through, and we ask You continue to be with us! Amen.
