Corner Cleaning

Corner Cleaning

Today as I walked home from the church for lunch, I saw the surest sign that spring is here to stay.  Not a robin, or a dandelion or someone running in shorts, but I saw the street sweeper cleaning up all the dirt, silt and sand at the sides of the road, left...
Voices in the Forest

Voices in the Forest

One of the few things we can do during this lockdown is exercise.  So I have been. A lot.  Usually in the form of walking through the trails in the forest.  What I love about the forest is that the same trail can reveal something different each time I...
Showing Up

Showing Up

Brene Brown once said, “sometimes the bravest and most important thing you can do, is just show up” She makes a good point.  There is a story of a group of kids who were bragging about how successful their parents are. The first little boy said, “my dad makes...
Taking a First Step

Taking a First Step

One day in your distant past, you took the very first step of your life.  Maybe it was a Tuesday, maybe a Saturday.  Maybe your parents were there to watch you, or maybe it happened when no one was looking.  But something in your mind assured you that...
Embarrassing Moments

Embarrassing Moments

Today I went to my gym for the noon class.  I did the class, and just as I was about to leave, I realized that my shorts were on inside out.  Oops!!  It was one of those embarrassing moments when you wish you could start all over again.  The funny...

McDonalds

The Tower

The Tower

One of my favourite Bible stories when I was a kid was the story of the Tower of Babel.  If you want to find it, start reading from the very beginning and you’ll get to it before you finish your coffee.  I think I really only liked it because I had a...
Shadows

Shadows

Have you ever tried to catch your shadow?  Sure you have.  Remember when you were young and you would see your shadow and you would try to catch up to it or step on it?  It would always be one step ahead of you, anticipating your every move and...
Curling

Curling

I have a confession to make, I like watching curling. Right now I’m enjoying the finals of the Scotties Tournament of Hearts.  Now I know I’m not alone, many people enjoy curling, but I’ve also heard on more than one occasion, “you watch curling?  I’d rather...
Icicles

Icicles

Hanging outside my window at the office is the biggest icicle I have ever seen.  I’m guessing it is about four feet long and good six inches thick at its base.  It has been there since December, a silent companion;  sturdy, majestic, and especially...
