Lessons Learned

Lessons Learned

Have you ever made a really stupid mistake?  The kind where you look back and to yourself say: “how could I have done that” or “why didn’t that dawn on me?”  Making mistakes is how we humans learn though.  Case in point:  The salt and pepper shakers in the kitchen I use for cooking had a slight flaw.  My former…

Ash Wednesday Thoughts

Ash Wednesday Thoughts

Lent begins early this year.  It seems we have just put away the tree, the ornaments, and the wrapping paper and already it’s time to receive ashes on our foreheads!  We come once again to this sacred, earthy season of Lent, where we remember that it is from dust and earth from which we emerge and one day we shall…

Love: Sing its Melody

Much has been written about these challenging days of 2020.  It will no doubt be remembered as the year when the world was brought to its knees; when in some ways, darkness overshadowed the earth.  Some might even say when the world stood still.  Our lives were certainly changed.  A global pandemic was upon us.  We were scared.  We were…

Simple Joys

Simple Joys

As Advent ends and Christmas is nearly here, the simple joys of children come to mind. Sometimes you never know what will come out of their little mouths or heads.  I was talking with my friend Carol last night and she shared with me two little “stories” of one of her nieces. Both of them made me laugh out loud! …

If Only

If Only
