Occasionally, I re-post writings from others when I think they have things to say that fit our theme of journeying and learning to Love God… Love People… and Live Free! As I considered my entry from a couple of weeks ago about “Interpreting Guilt“, today’s topic seems to fit perfectly. Here is a verbatim re-post of some great thoughts from a blog… Read More Forgive.
I had a conversation with someone recently about guilt. They felt that someone had been making them feel guilty about not giving enough to a certain cause. They really didn’t like feeling guilt (and after all, who really does?) and that dislike of the feeling itself seemed to make them resentful of the person making… Read More Interpreting Guilt
When you go to the Doctor, one of the most common questions you’ll get is, “Have there been any changes in your health lately? . . . recent weight-loss? . . . weight-gain? . . . etc.” The Doctor isn’t just being nosey or trying to chat it up with you. Your Doctor knows that… Read More Slipping from Heart to Head
I don’t normally make ‘advertisement’ type posts. In fact, I never have before. But today I’m posting a note to let you know about a retreat some friends and I are hosting on JAN 28-30th. It is called LIFEQUESTweekend and it is a 3-day retreat for men (sorry ladies). You can get all the details… Read More LIFEQUESTweekend Retreat (Jan 28-30)
I want to talk about it again… talk about… Love. Ok… so what’s your first reaction to reading that?… your reaction to “Love”? What did it raise in your heart? Was it, “Oh, Good! I love to talk about love?”… or was it more like, “Ugh! Again?!”… “Haven’t we read enough about Love?!”… “Love… love…… Read More Love… Again… and Again?!
When did you last experience joy? The kind that stirs something deep inside you.… Read More Core Desire
My dear blog-friends — I read the following blog entry recently and it really got me thinking. To be honest, it nailed me in a few areas of my heart and life.

I’m driving home from work and I had a really good and unexpected encounter with God… I had to stop and write it down… so I’m writing this on-the-fly in the Walgreens parking lot I just pulled into…… Read More No Longer Suited for a “Normal” life
So… recently… a couple of weeks ago… I’m going through the routines… getting up, getting dressed, going to work, trying to feel “productive”, trying to make a positive impact on the world. And, after a few hours at work, I take a walk down the hall for a quick break and to step outside of the clutter of my day… as I do, an awareness begins to grow in me. Today, as I unexpectedly (and quite unintentionally) create a little space by taking a stroll, an awareness of something inside begins to creep into my peripheral vision, into the edges of my conscious thought — but what is it?!… Read More Just having a bad day…?
I was just reading an “eLetter” put out by a man I trust and follow, Gary Barkalow. He was talking about how many of us (likely, most of us) have been hurt by a ministry or a person in ministry.
