It’s Mother’s Day Again


There are some mothers whose Mother’s Day is going to be heart-wrenching, and to those I wish the peace and comfort only God can give. There are also families who no longer have their mother with them, may their memories bring them peace.

To all the mothers in my family and around the world may your Mother’s Day be filled with love and togetherness. Happy Sunday and happy Mother’s Day.

Don’t Worry Be Happy


Here is a song by a young man who passed away in 1981 at the age of thirty-six, Bob Marley. Bob left behind a legacy of music that will never be forgotten. This is one of my favorites. Happy weekend.

Some Interesting Comments


While visiting a happily married young couple, I was struck by a comment the husband made about his wife…”She was my last first date.”

A well known Canadian journalist commented on TV that the result of a recent Provincial leadership race was a “disaster wrapped in a calamity”.

Coming Unplugged


Coming unplugged usually has a connotation to music, but today let’s look at it another way. Let’s think of it as rebooting…like the TV or computer when they don’t work. This Anne Lamott plug is worth noting:

A Whole New Perspective


For those of us who feel that our load is too heavy to bear and our cross too cumbersome to carry, this blog by Butch Dean on May 3, 2018 should give us a whole new perspective. Happy Sunday.

The Cross

“Forgive me, Lord, but I just can’t bear this cross anymore”.

God heard her prayer, said it was all right and asked her to come with Him. She found herself in the presence of Jesus, Who looked upon her with loving eyes.

“Jesus, please forgive me, but I can’t bear this cross anymore”. Jesus told her that He understood and took the cross from her.

Jesus then showed her a place where there were countless crosses. He told her to look around and find a cross that she thought she could bear. The woman looked upon the crosses available and shuddered.

There were huge, dark crosses…some with thorns…some with nails and some too awful to even describe. Then, her eyes fell upon a small cross, one she thought she could bear.

“Jesus”, she said, “I think I can bear that cross”, as she pointed to the small cross she had found. Jesus smiled at her, placed His hand on her shoulder and replied, “That is the cross you just gave me”.

Bring On That Smile


There are lessons in living everywhere we look.

When I opened my curtains yesterday morning, two little bunnies were chasing each other around the yard at speeds I didn’t think rabbits could reach. It made me smile my face off and laugh out loud.

At lunch time I tossed a few crumbs of croissant into the yard and before the crumbs completely left my hand, a chickadee was devouring one. That also made me smile.

And then this came my way on the Internet. Happy Saturday.

There Is Always Hope


Suddenly there seems to be much sad news coming my way. Families of friends are becoming ill, some to the point of no return. In the news people are being randomly killed for no known reason. As one lady I know begins treatment for advancing cancer, she commented, “This too shall pass.”

Which brings me to today’s message…there is always hope.
