Skipping Practice

Growing up, I took piano lessons. It was a requirement of my parents. If they paid for the lessons I was going to practice.   My friends who took lessons had to practice 30 minutes per day. Of course, my parents required more. 45 ...

Gifts We Don’t Think We Want…But turn out to be beautiful, anyway!

Twenty or so years ago, I was exchanging Christmas gifts with a new-found friend.   We had similar interests and the friendship seemed to be a very easy one.   Gifts are one of my love languages, so I was excited to start ...

Snakes and Sharing

A few days ago I rounded the corner on the back porch and a very thin but VERY long snake was slithering its way across the deck.   After I jumped on the couch (which, in hindsight, was completely irrational because it was at least ...

Good Friday

When I was in seminary, some of my classes would be 9 hours in duration, giving an hour for lunch. That's a long time for any of us to sit still. To pass the time I'd draw boxes on my paper and every five minutes color them in. When there were ...

Are you willing to embrace the pattern?

Do you like patterns? For some, it's a fun challenge to identify a pattern, figuring it out. For others it's a nuisance and unnecessary. Whether we like patterns or not, they are undeniable in life. And as we evolve as a species we learn ...
