Thank you…

I appreciate you. 

These are words that most people like to hear.  They can help us to feel seen, recognized, validated.  Recently, I said this to someone and got an unexpected response.  While my words were sincere and heartfelt, they triggered a negative reaction. 

Why? 

Ruthlessly Eliminate Hurry

You need to ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life. Hurry is the great enemy of the spiritual life. Eliminate hurry, and you will find the rest Jesus offers.

Season of Giving

Many of us are spent: financially, physically, emotionally, spiritually.

If I only knew….

In general, I try to live my life without regrets.  I try to invest in relationships and not take things for granted.  But this year… 

 You know what I mean.  I don’t have to tell you.  Even though I may never meet you, I can imagine that at some time in the last 8 months, you have looked out a window and also said to yourself, “If I only knew.” 

Thanksgiving, Together Once More
