Nothing To Worry About

Nothing To Worry About

No matter what I did, worry wouldn't leave me alone. Prayer. Mediation. Mindfulness. Even gardening didn't stop it from tormenting me. "You're a thief, worry, robbing me of my peace," I said. "I know," worry replied, and grinned, happy with itself. Hmmm, I thought. If...

Heartstrings

Heartstrings

The moon hung suspended on strings from God's hands. I saw it there, above the trees just to the north, and walked out to greet it. God tugged it upwards, directing it higher and higher into the night sky. The stars came out to watch the show with me, the great...

The Mystery Of God

The Mystery Of God

I sat in the garden on a fog-shrouded morning, appreciating the life around me. The birds at the feeder. Snails on their slow crawl across the cobblestones. Earthworms munching through the earth. Bees buzzing about my head. "I don't know what you are God, but I love...

Love Is Never A Burden

Love Is Never A Burden

The moon climbed high into the starry sky, spilling her pale light into my room. I readied myself for sleep—another day done. I took off my shoes and thought about the needy prayers I'd been praying lately, asking God for help with this and that. I knelt by my bed and...

No More Shadows

No More Shadows

All-day, my worries chased me— work problems, bills that needed paying, sick family members, and the ever-present pandemic. Like shadows, they trailed me wherever I went, chasing my heels and my heart with their darkness. I threw every coping skill I had at them. But...

A Simple Morning

A Simple Morning

Out on my walk, I stop to admire a single red rose that looks to be the guardian of the garden. It reaches up over the fence, questioning my motive for having stopped in front of its yard. "Just wanting to experience God," I explain. I bury my nose in its opened...
