Where are You?

Life is hard. I am often overwhelmed by it – There is so much going on that I do not even know how to pray – Haiti is under rubble and storms rage nearby. Innocent people in Afghanistan are under intense persecution without a safety net. People are infected with Covid – even though they…

Nightbirde

I am quite humbled and enthralled by the singer who got the golden buzzer on America’s Got Talent. Her name is Jane but she goes by the name Nightbirde. Wow! Not only does she have a good voice, but she has a perspective that is extraordinary. I want to be like her, reflecting the Lord’s…

National Battery Day

So today seems like a good day to tell you the recent encounter I experienced with my parents regarding their TV remote. I usually visit them and help out once a week or so. Last week when I stopped by my mom asked in her normally sassy way if I could fix the TV. When…

Resilience

Resilience is the ability to bounce back from trials; it is the response to tragedy and crises that allows one to move on despite the loss or trauma. Being resilient to me means I have the ability to suffer greatly without giving…

Relevance

Sometimes I struggle with relevance. Being stuck inside, isolated and away from community can do that. For me, not having a career anymore has made that worse. Is this something that matters for individual people? Even though it is really important that businesses and organizations remain relevant, or useful, innovative and up with the times, I am curious…

On Hold

So the other day I called my phone company to add a personal hotspot to one of the lines on my plan. I was on hold for over 2 hours so eventually the “soothing” music was not so soothing and I was worried that I would be cut off and have to start over. It…
