Just when you think that we couldn’t be farther apart as citizens of the same country, something happens to show us how wrong we are.  Here’s a true story that is proof of that error thinking. Near our house is a convenience store that carries a particular adult beverage I…

Life’s A Journey June 18, 2021

Traveling today is a lot different than when I was a kid.  Back then, Daddy loaded up the trunk with suitcases and a cooler filled with food and drinks. We fought over who would sit by the windows first and who got stuck in the middle of the back seat.  Mama…

Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner! June 11, 2021

You might be surprised to realize how many opportunities to grow in spiritual understanding you’ve missed simply because you were sleepwalking through life.  Somnambulance – sleepwalking – is actually the state in which all of us live.  We are physically awake but asleep to higher states of awareness.  We go…

Signposts on the Spiritual Journey June 4, 2021

Here it is, the end of another school year.  This one is significant because our daughter graduates from high school. Her future may not include any additional formal schooling.  What that means to me is no more tests!  Studying for tests has been a tricky business.  We were never quite…

Bird Brained May 28, 2021

Our church sits on 24 acres on the outskirts of Tallahassee.  One of the pleasures of working here is the surprising array of wildlife that shows up regularly.  Over the years here, I’ve seen deer, wild turkeys, peacocks, rabbits, an impressive variety of birds, and even a bison!  All of…

Who’s Running the Show? May 14, 2021

I just finished watching an hour-long presentation by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor.  In it, she previewed the contents of her new book, Whole Brain Living. Not only did she expose the myth that we only use 10% of our brains, but she added that we have four distinct parts of…

Shopping for Salvation – May 7, 2021

In some ways, I admit that I live a weird life.  Since I began to see life as a spiritual journey, I have had daily opportunities to exercise my spiritual muscles.   As I learn to stop sleepwalking through life, I find joy and meaning in the most mundane events.  Read…

Fly Free – April 30, 2021

It was the buzzing that woke me. Wanting to sleep in, I felt the sharp constriction of irritation in my stomach that precedes anger.  Breathing deeply, I squelched that impulse. I’d never get back to sleep if I gave in to anger. I lay there, watching my breath, hoping that…

It’s a Mad, Mad World April 23, 2021

“Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.”  Alphonse Karr (1809-90) I didn’t intend to get caught up in the Outlander series of books, but here I am on the sixth installment.  This historical, science-fiction series is the life work of author, Diana Gabaldon.  On her website, she admits that…
