Gratitude Changes Everything

Posted by Diane Sell on

As Thanksgiving has been approaching (and is now here!) I’ve been thinking about gratitude a lot lately. When the boys were little we used to go around the circle before dinner and talk about what we were thankful for in the past year. Some years we would hear things like “I’m...

And Be Thankful

Posted by John Helgen on

How are you feeling this week as Thanksgiving approaches? This year it is distressing that we are not able to gather together for Thanksgiving in the ways we are used to doing. Thankfulness probably does not come as easily in a time of pandemic!  In the book of Colossians, chapter 3, the...

I’ve written before about fear. There is lots of it going around…touching each of us in some form. Fear of catching the Covid-19 virus…of getting very sick…of dying from it... or having a loved one die from it. Fear of the other political side…socialists!...

As I stared into the incredible Grand Canyon last week, and as the vertigo swirled over me, I felt incredible small. The immensity of the hole and the myriad colors and textures is overwhelming. Then, as I read the interpretive signs along the Rim Trail, I gained a deeper sense of why I felt...

The Test

Return to Center

Many of us say a common prayer in the evening. Nancy and I taught it to our children. It has been modified over the years but here is the version we use. Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.Guard me through the starry night, and wake me with the morning light...

A Goodly Share

Posted by on

Most everyone reading this devotion knows this prayer—and probably uses it regularly. Come Lord Jesus be our Guest; And let these gifts to us be blessed.  Amen. But did you know that there is a second verse? My nephew and family taught it to us. And may there be a goodly share; On...

Start with your heart

God is within her, she will not fall;God will help her at break of day – Psalm 46:5 I turned on the news this morning, and I was quickly faced with the feeling our world is falling apart at the seams. Natural disasters, a worldwide pandemic, political conflict, racial injustice, and...
