Stairway to Heaven

Stairway to Heaven Or maybe it’s Jacob’s Ladder? Well, not quite. Unlike Jacob’s dream, there are no angels ascending or descending to and from heaven on this particular skyward stair step. However, there may yet be some similarities in this worn out ol’ aluminum ladder leaned up against my roof and the one Jacob dreamed

Bible Culture Agriculture – Part 1

I’m just old enough now that I can say to some (more than I care to admit) that, “I remember when…”. The truth is, I remember when gasoline was $0.70 a gallon, when you could get glass-bottle sodas and  cigarettes from pull-lever vending machines. I remember vinyl records, 8-tracks, cassette tapes, boom boxes, walkmans, and

Five Places Yeast Hides

Five Places Yeast Likes to Hide “Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel. . . . Seven days shall there be no leaven found

I think…I don’t know

The living room drapes let little sunshine through, but my friend needs the light. I want to throw them open and pretend everything is okay. But it isn’t. And it won’t be okay for a while. I cross the room to the lone chair that someone placed near the couch. My footsteps are muffled in

How to Be a Giver in a Taker’s World

“But, Mama, you didn’t notice the good…” The hurt in his face hurts my heart, stops me and catches me unaware as I rush through my day in the flurry to get to the twilight of a Friday. Vacuuming, dish washing and clothes folding still waiting, one more project and I can call it one

After the News

The news came quickly—the knock on the door or the phone call that pulled the future from your planning. The beautiful future you imagined. The life you thought assured. If there had been some warning… some sign… Blindsided, reeling in the free fall following devastating news, you ask what now? How can you continue? How

White Picket Fences

“Isn’t that fence pretty, Grandma?” We were walking together, along the dead end road. The evergreen trees lined the lane up to the whitewashed wooden fence marking the edge of the neighbors’ property. The smile lifted her wrinkles. “Why, yes, I would say so. They worked hard on that fence. They built it, sanded it,

Like a Child

“You’re touching me!” “No, no, no!” “It’s mine, not yours!” The kids are bickering at the breakfast table. Again. I listen long enough to determine that intervention is not needed. Then my mind wanders to Scriptures about children. They are blessings, each of them, valuable and precious. “Lo, children are an heritage of Yahweh” Psalm

Everyday Ways to Matter

“In other news…” The news anchor continues on to other stories, but my appetite has fled. This scenario is repeated every time I catch up on the state of the world. It takes only a few minutes watching the news to see deprivation. From eroding freedoms to the undermining of families to the attack on

Time to Fruit

Last year, I was traveling through security in a large airport. I took my shoes off, raised my arms, and received a complimentary scan and the waving wand of approval. During the process, my check-on was x-rayed. A man stepped forward holding my brown bag in a small gray tray. “Is this yours?” The pointed
