Do you ever feel like you've lost your bearings and have the sense that you're not where you want/need to be?I'm busier than ever, with lots of great things going on in my life, but lately I've been neglecting my diet and exercise schedule, and my body is telling me that it's time to pay attention.Just the other day, a kid in my neighborhood who belongs to my church mentioned "I haven't been...

A good friend of mine is out in Colorado this weekend for a mini vacation. He hasn't travelled much, and he's out in the Denver area visiting another friend.I've enjoyed the texts and photos he's sent the last few days. I can tell he's having a great time, and the thing that he's enjoying most is the beautiful scenery and the regional food he's been trying. He's got me thinking about my own...

Where Did The Time Go?

I've found myself asking this question a lot lately. Over the weekend, I was getting ready for someone to come and paint several of the rooms inside my house.I didn't want to change colors, but just give everything a freshening up. I knew I had a paper with all the color names and paint numbers, but it took me awhile to find it. Who can remember names likeJersey CreamandCaen Stone? With a tip I...

Thinking Spring

I know. Fall isn't even officially here yet, and I'm already writing about spring. Well, in my book, it's good to plan ahead.And if you want your spring to be especially beautiful, now is the time to act. Most spring-blooming flowers have to be planted soon in order for them to settle in before the ground freezes.Another benefit of thinking about spring, at least for me, is that it takes my...

I made a little retreat this past weekend with a friend of mine, and it was filled with lots of great experiences.One of them was heading to a outcroping of rocks in Pennsylvania called High Rock. Over the years, I've taken lots of people here to see the spectacular views.On Saturday, we were treated to watching a group of hang gliders launch from the rocks and glide down into the valley below....

Keeping Calm

I don't know about you, but it seems like there's an awful lot of negative things going on in the world today.I thought that maybe after the political conventions, the rhetoric might be toned down a bit. No chance.We all keep praying for peace in our world. It seems like violence and hatred continue to raise their ugly heads more often than not. And then there's the economy, unemployment... The...

Don't Give Up

I was talking with a group of college students tonight, and the theme was the power of prayer.I shared with them a personal experience of years of prayer for a particular intention, but those prayers seemed to go unanswered. I prayed. My family prayed. My friends prayed. Nothing seemed to happen. We got discouraged. Some stopped praying. I gave up more than once.

So, how has your holiday weekend been? As we mark the end of the potential summer vacations, I hope you've had the chance to relax a bit.I've used my time to catch up on some yard work and a bit of housecleaning. As the rains have come and gone, I've had to alternate between being in the yard and being inside, but so far, quite a bit is being accomplished on both fronts.Last night, I started...

Learning about Diabetes

There are literally millions of people in the United States who have diabetes. Up until the discovery of insulin in the 1920's, a diagnosis of this disease was a death sentence. Many didn't survive a year.Thanks to countless medical advances and improved patient awareness, it's not abnormal be diabetic and live long, happy and productive lives. The key to success is knowledge. Sadly, many...

Goodbye Summer

Summer seemed like it flew by, didn't it? For many people, school is back in session this week, if it hasn't started already.When I was growing up, school always started after Labor Day. Maybe it was the same for you. Somehow, it seems a bit strange to go for a whole week, then get a three-day weekend. I guess someone knows what they're doing :)Well, now that our rhythm of life has changed a...
