Relax in the Lord!!

“To sit in the shade on a fine day, and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment.” (Jane Austen 1775-1817)  Everyday activities can create chaos in our lives. Fear, anxiety, anger and doubt play far too large a role in our lives and sometimes kill our peace and well-being. The antidote to the poison of our unhealthy fears, angers, and doubts is our ability to relax in the Lord. And then these everyday activities can be “the most perfect refreshment”. Take these “relaxing techniques” into your everyday activities: Relax and look at the stars in the vast, night sky and see a reflection of the mighty God who made them. Relax and look at the tiny fingers of a new-born child and see there a reflection of the tender God who made every new born. Relax and look at the goodness of so many people around you and see there a reflection of the good God who created them in his own image and likeness. Relax and look at the loveliness of a single flower and see in it a reflection of the gracious God who made every flower that ever bloomed. Relax and look at the wonders of nature that surround you and see the beauty of the creative God who reveals himself to us every moment. Relax and look at all the goodness within your own heart and see there a reflection of wonderful God who made you. Relax in the Lord and know on the inside how vast is his goodness and how unfailing is his kindness. That vast goodness and kindness of God is... read more

What’s the “Best Thing In Life?”

My mom Ginny, a wonderful teacher reminded me, “you can’t buy health.” These wise words often come to mind as I hear of so many struggling with health problems. It does seem that the REAL things in life cannot be purchased, no matter whom you are. Steve Jobs, CEO and maker of iPad…iPhone etc. died a billionaire and here are some of his last thoughts and words on his sick bed. “At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death. Five Undeniable Facts of Life: 1. Don’t educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be Happy. So when they grow up they will know the value of things not the price. 2. Best awarded words in London … “Eat your food as your medicines. Otherwise you have to eat medicines as your food.” 3. The One who loves you will never leave you for another because even if there are 100 reasons to give up, he or she will find one reason to hold on. 4. There is a big difference between a human being and being human. Only a few really understand it. 5. You are loved when you are born. You will be loved when you die. In between, you have to manage! NOTE: If you just want to Walk Fast, Walk Alone! But if you want to Walk Far, Walk Together!” Yes, the best things in life are free. It’s up to us to... read more


“At the next corner make a legal U-turn,” my GPS squawked at me. When I flew past the “next corner,” the same reprimand came through once again but this time annunciating little more forcefully and with stern authority (Now you see why I call her Pearl, the “dash witch”. At last I won the road battle and Pearl was forced to give in to my way of arriving at our destination. She waived the white flag of surrender as she explained her silence, “Re-Calculating”. It’s not just Pearl who has to re-calculate, but we too. We THINK we have a destination in mind. We’ve mapped out our goals and strategies starting out with firm determination and high hopes. But like Pearl, all of us have to constantly re-examine the course of our lives. We may miss an opportunity. Our lives may swerve unintentionally. We wonder where do we go from here? How do we get there? Our lives are in a constant building process, rerouting our journey. When one phase is done, another has to begin. So how does God teach and guide us as our inner building proceeds? Usually very quietly but always persistently because most of us are slow learners. God teaches us without words. Sometimes through sadness calling us to share our gifts. Sometimes through uneasiness the Lord may be pulling us in a different direction. And sometimes through our joy the Lord may be saying, “You got it right! Good for you!” Always our Lord is there, quietly teaching, probing and showing us the way. But are we learning? Sometime not! Partly because we’re not... read more
