Where Can I Go from Your Presence?

Where Can I Go from Your Presence?

A Lesson from Cookies

A Lesson from Cookies

I made cookies tonight and they surprised me! I have been working on a cookbook for the past six months, Healthy Kitchen - Healing Body: Eating for Longevity. Usually most of the recipes turn out pretty much how I expect them to, but tonight the cookies I made...

Sheep of this Pen

Sheep of this Pen

There is a passage in the gospels where Jesus says, “I have other sheep which are not of this pen.” This passage has been used by some in spiritually authoritative positions to delineate which sheep are Jesus’s sheep in this pen, rather than to allow the expanded...

Spend Time – One Way or Another

Spend Time – One Way or Another

Love Grows Strong

Love Grows Strong

I just returned from Texas where my family gathered to celebrate my parents' 50th anniversary. What a wonderful time it was! And how touching to see my parents, now in their later years, being so tender and loving. I have many memories of them canoodling with each...

“Je suis Charlie”

“Je suis Charlie”

I watched the events of January 7th in my beloved Paris unfolding with heaviness in my heart. I simply do not understand a thought process that rationalizes committing such violence to avenge an insult to a prophet. It is so far removed from my ability to make sense...
