Green Pastures, Still Waters and Refreshing

The last couple of days I have been spending time in Psalm 23 The first few verses are what has captured my heart: 1 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.  2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,      he leads me beside quiet waters,  3 he refreshes my soul. Lord,  I...

Longing for More

March 2008 I am in a small group and we are to ponder our answer to Jesus’ question, “What do you really want from me?” I found something I wrote back in February and it captured the essence of what I want right now – God, I need to hear from You . . . sense...

Radio Controlled Model Planes, My Life and God

The model airplanes are flying again,           diving low, at times skimming the lake           and rising again,           flipping, rolling,           banking to the left and then to the right,           at times simply flying through the air. I think of how the safety of the plane depends on           the skill of...

Rise and Come

  This was written September 17, 2005, about 6 weeks before my brother died. Dear God: The fear that plays around the edges of my heart is that this enjoyment of scripture, this new way of studying Your word will fade away (reading for the pause, writing to You, God and being quiet as I...

Definately!

As I sit in my recliner, often my eyes go to this clock. It’s a special clock, because Galen’s dad was a “Master Mix” Feed dealer as Galen was growing up, and when his sister found this clock, she bought it and gave it to Galen. It now resides in our “memory room.” I simply enjoyed...

Memoranda, Moleskins & Moments

While with our family in Wisconsin over Thanksgiving, during one of my early morning quiet times, I was meditating on scripture and taking time to be quiet. And I remember having some kind of “insight” or “encouragement” that God brought to my mind. But I didn’t write it down and now I don’t remember. This...

Pre-occupation

Written August 20, 2010 “To be “pre-occupied” means to fill our time and place long before we are there. This is worrying in the more specific sense of the word. It is a mind filled with “what if . . . “. When we are preparing for eventualities, we seldom fully trust the moment.” Henri...
