“Find God”

So, I decided to clean the top of my desk. I try to do this at least once every 25 years whether it needs it or not. Among the stacks of papers, I came across a list, at the top of which I had written “Find God.”

“Be Still and Know that I Am God”

Of all Bible verses, “Be still, and know that I am God!” is one of my favorites (Psalm 46:10). A hyperactive individual all my life, just being still is a challenge. And controlling the mind? An act of Congress could not do it, so that’s a feat better left to God. Praise the Lord, I have tried numerous, varied, untold places to pray and meditate.

Jesus Would Not Have Denied Me Communion

My husband Paul and I have been married for more than 47 years! We are as alike as jelly and jam and as different as whole wheat and rye. He grew up in the northern United States; I grew up in the South. He’s Catholic and I’m Baptist; for the most part that distinction has never been an issue.

Greeting God

Greet God each morning with open arms! When our children were young and my husband and I would come home from work, they would run to us with arms open wide, overflowing with happiness and love. How I miss those times of unrestrained, all-encompassing love.
