Forty Yet?

I heard someone say on PBS that “You don’t know anything until you’re forty.” Certainly that was true for the Israelites, who wandered in the wilderness, led and fed by the LORD that they might know man does not live by bread alone. Today, all these millennia later, I am reading Deuteronomy 7-8 and hearing Read More …

Visible or Invisible?

Again I see that worry is not the same as care and concern. Nor is it the same as intercession for  another who has not yet seen Jesus. Because I have, I am able to endure as “seeing Him who is invisible.” I cannot dictate when He will make Himself manifest,, when someone will suddenly Read More …

Evidence?

Tugs of War?

Divisive politics have seemed really “small potatoes” to me lately  — so deeply entrenched in the broken systems of earth. Recently, via reading some excellent books, I have been pointed upward to big ideas and universal truths, making me tremendously appreciative of artists who consider matters that matter, such as mortality and the meaning of Read More …
