My heart was moved to share a prayer today. My God, comfort all who mourn. Help us, Lord, to be people of compassion and of wisdom. Many are desperately seeking good and so are seeking God. Though they may not know it. Help us, those who have experienced Your grace and know You, to be … Continue reading A Prayer for Today
It's 4 days into the new year so I'm a little late. But, hey, I'm trying. I read an interesting article yesterday about the cancel culture we are now living in and how there is no room for forgiveness and mercy. I happened to write about that myself a while back.

Sometimes, when I don't know what to say, a song shows up that says it for me. And that's today. So, listen to this song by Big Daddy Weave, but read the words, too. Use them as a prayer. Go on. It will do you good. I couldn't help but think of supercalifragilisticexpialidocious when I wrote … Continue reading Thoughts on Mary Poppins

I just heard a song yesterday for the first time. It's by one of my favorite Christian singer/songwriters, Matthew West. The lyrics are below. Appropriate that I should hear the song on 9/11, the anniversary of the terrorist attack that changed the world. In many ways, it was changed for the worse.
