Never Too Big

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…

 

“There is no problem so huge, so widespread, and so difficult to solve…

…that it cannot be run away from.” 

Pogo (Walt Kelly)                  

            I don’t know if you’ve ever phrased it quite that way before, but my hunch is that you’ve felt that way before.  I don’t have a clue whether or not Pogo’s statement is true.  I suppose it may be, or may have been for someone at some time, but as a way of life—well, that may be another story altogether.

A Lifetime of Dreams

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…

 

“People don’t run out of dreams…they run out of time.”  The Eagles

 

          The sun is beginning to set outside my window as I sit here now with you.  Today’s “early morning thoughts” are a long and remarkably busy day from when the sun rose and with a heart brimming with good intentions—I sat down to spend a moment with you. (more…)

What It’s About

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…

 

“I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made.  But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me.  Friends, don’t get me wrong:  By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus.  I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.” 

Philippians 3: 13-14 (The Message)

 

            A cold front is whipping into the area bringing with it thirty-degree drops in temperatures.  My Granddaughters, who have been with us, requested that a fire be built in the fireplace.  Watching them snuggle around the warmth of the crackling embers reminds me again what “it’s about” and what “it’s not about.”   (more…)

Somewhere Out There

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…

 

“I have come that they may have life, and they may have it more abundantly.”  John 10:10 (NKJV)

 

            I don’t know why it’s so hard for me to believe that another year is in the record books, and I find myself sitting here being welcomed by the sunrise into the first Monday morning of a brand new year—2009.  I wonder if growing older has anything to do with it, or is it that being busier tends to blur the lines of each passing day, month and year, or maybe I’m just not paying attention. 

I wonder if this is the year I will do the things I have long felt I should do? (more…)
