Ready Writer

My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer… Psalm 45:1 King James Version Lord, when I languish in laziness, let me leap toward liveliness. Let me not rest in reason, but wrestle for righteousness. Give…

Zephyr Point

Zephyr Point, at Lake Tahoe, is home to a beautiful retreat facility. It was there at a Men’s retreat that I captured this stunning sunset, rendered here as a painting.

Can I trust Him?

Can I trust when I don’t see my way?       Can I trust Him if just for today? Can I set all my “learning” aside;      While believing, He surely will guide? It is good that my mind will craft plans;      That will surely keep busy my hands. For it’s He Who my steps…

Sunsational

East Main Street, Carmel, descends directly to the Pacific Ocean, where mounds of sand mark the way to this glistening, sunset-drenched beach.

Butterfly Wishes

Was it better walled in comfort’s womb?       Wrapped so warmly there, a hopeful tomb? Waiting, workless, fed by unseen hands,       Placed so timely by the Master’s plans. Moses’ desert bush by flaming words,       Set his heart aglow, for he had heard. Jacob’s wrestling angel in his night,       Timely set his soul…

Sea Escape

Just north of Pigeon Point Lighthouse, this seascape scene delightfully displays the tempestuous tumult and climatic charm of the Pacific Coastline.

The “Who” vs. the “Do”

I’m a Human Being, not a Human Doing! “Look what I did; see my work!”        Pride, though present, doubts still lurk. “You can do it,” many said.        “Just step out; just go ahead.” “I can’t do it, it won’t be.”        Used to be my doubter’s plea. Still, inside, my deep desire,       …

The Package vs. the Person

One indicator of spiritual/emotional maturity is that more satisfaction results from understanding than in being understood. It is revealing that admiration of features (appearance, gifts, talents or performance) merely indicates an acknowledgment and appreciation of them, not a love for that person. Facets are the authentic expression of one’s person (humor, empathy, loyalty, and temperament)….

The Revealing, Healing God

Thursday night at a weekly singles meeting, I went up to receive communion, anointing with oil and prayer. I hobbled into the meeting with severe pain in my right hip area.
