What Are You Dreaming About?

If you watched any TV this week, you probably heard something about Ted Williams, a homeless man living in Columbus, Ohio. A reporter saw the small sign he was holding as he tried to make a buck along a busy road. Williams had written that he had been an ex-radio announcer who had fallen on hard times.When the reporter spoke to him on camera, Williams responded in a voice that was straight out...

I heard a great quote the other day. Sorry, but I didn't get the source when I was writing down the quotation :(

If you are breathing, there's more right with you than wrong.

So often, we focus on the negative rather than the positive. When I heard this quote, I was reminded that, no matter how bad things may seem, there's still a lot of good going on all around us. We just need to change our...

Getting Well

On the first Saturday of December, my church holds a big Christmas Bazaar. We've been doing it for years, and it's a lot of fun. Anyway, one of the things I like best about the bazaar is going through all the books that are for sale. There are literally tons of them, and they go for 25 cents each.This year, I picked up a copy of Food for Thought, which is filled with little daily mediations for...

It's funny, today I was going to remind everyone about the importance of having some self-discipline during the holidays, and my friend Todd Burrier beat me to it :) His blog posting is below, and it's great. I know you'll get as much out of it as I did.The other day, I wroteabout the importance of being intentional, especially those who are watching their weight and/or are diabetic, and how...

Mary's Yes

In the Catholic tradition, today is a special Feast Day of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Whenever one of these feast days rolls around, I'm always reminded of the simple yes Mary said to the Angel Gabriel (Luke 1:26-38), and how her submission to God changed the world.Have you ever considered the fact that Mary had to say her yes in order for Jesus to be born? God never forces things upon us,...

Be Intentional

I was driving the other day and came upon an interesting conversation on the radio. The person was talking about a concept called intentionality.Basically, the idea is that we needed to be more intentional in our actions, and I was thinking that it was a great thing to reflect upon as we prepare our hearts and minds for Christmas.Here's a couple of examples right of the top of my head. You go...

So, the season of Advent is here. For us Christians, this season is supposed to be a time of expectant waiting and preparation for our remembrance of the Nativity of our Lord. What would He ever think of our Black Fridays and Cyber Mondays? We have lost our way...[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UGaDcQcFKk]What if we used these weeks of Advent as they were meant to be used? Not so much...

Holiday Balancing Act

Now that the holiday season is officially here, I asked my friend Todd Burrier to do another guest blog. For those with health issues like diabetes which require them to exercise regularly and closely watch what they eat, this time of year can present problems.The weather is getting colder, so it becomes harder to get consistent exercise. We go to lots of social events where tables are loaded...

Forgive

As we get ready for the start of the holiday season, this timely message from John Eldredge arrived in my inbox this morning. Over the next several weeks, we'll be with people who love us, but also with those who've hurt us. We'll be given chances to forgive, to seek forgiveness, to reconcile, to bring peace into a broken world. Isn't that what we should be doing anyway?

Forgive

We must forgive...
