The Willingness of Love

Love is the willingness       to give up a part of yourself       you think you know, to discover a part of yourself       you never knew existed. — John Squadra Makes you wonder what you will find if you give yourself completely to God?

Christmas Without Being Christmas

Have you noticed the prevalence of snowmen as a growing secular symbol for Christmas? Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing personal against snowmen. I like them and they bring a sense of nostalgia along with the Christmas season. In a way, this is a false nostalgia for me because I can count on one […]

No More Words; More Than Words

Prayer and love are learned in the hour when prayer becomes impossible and your heart has turned to stone. — Thomas Merton In the last couple weeks or so, I have ran into a “problem” in my prayer life. I say “problem” because my first inclination is to try to fix it. But as I […]

Palms of My Hands

Can a mother forget her infant, be without tenderness for the child of her womb? Even should she forget, I will never forget you. See, upon the palms of My hands I have written your name. — Isaiah 49:15-16a

St. Ephraem’s Prayer

O Lord and Master of my life, do not give me the spirit of sloth,       despair, lust of power and idle talk; but give rather the spirit of chastity,       humility, patience and love to your servant. Yes, O Lord and King, grant that I may see my own transgressions […]

If Only I Knew…

Imagine yourself in a high school honors algebra two class. The intellectual who’s who of your grade is in this class. Imagine further, the teacher, who in an effort to help his students around one particularly tricky question, gives a hint to an answer on the test. He says, “For problem number twenty two, I […]

The “W” in Christmas

I received this in an email this morning… Each December, I vowed to make Christmas a calm and peaceful experience. I had cut back on nonessential obligations—extensive card writing, endless baking, decorating, and even overspending. Yet still, I found myself exhausted, unable to appreciate the precious family moments, and of course, the true meaning of […]

You cannot teach faith;     you have to radiate faith. You cannot tell others to hope;     you have to radiate hope. You cannot describe love;     you have to radiate love. You cannot give what you do not have. You cannot radiate goodness     unless you are filled with goodness. […]

The Gospel Tree

There once was a shining Christmas tree Standing out where all could see. Its brilliance captured every eye And seemed to cheer each passer by. “The lights are so bright,” they would say And hesitate to walk away. The tree stood proud ablaze with light For every light was burning bright. Then one bulb was […]

Did You Hear the Good News?

Star by Janet McKenzie “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel,” which means “God is with us.” — Matthew 1:23, Isaiah 7:14 That maybe the most profound statement in the whole Bible—“God is with us”…something to keep in mind…and in our hearts…always…and then every day […]

The Missing Baby Jesus

It was the day after Christmas. The pastor of the church was looking over the Nativity scene when he noticed that the baby Jesus was missing from the cradle among the figures. Immediately he turned and went outside and saw a little boy with a red wagon, and in the wagon was the figure of […]

How Often Do You Hear “I Love You”?

How often do you hear the words, “I love you”? Be honest. Once a day? Once a week? Once a month? Can’t remember the last time? How about the flip side of that question: how often do you say the words, “I love you”? Maybe you have heard or said these words a little more […]

Deafness, Patience & Prayer

The other night in the bookstore, the book The Spiritual Life by Evelyn Underhill immediately caught my attention. I thumbed through the beginning pages and the quote below made me freeze. I fear that I may be deaf. So many Christians are like deaf people at a concert. They study the programme carefully, believe every […]
