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...

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.
