Easter – Season of New Life Little babies coo and smile, waiting to be baptized. Knobby buds appear on trees, waiting for release. Crocuses push through a thin layer of late snow. Piglets squeal on the farm. Wobbly colts try out shaky legs. Spring is finally here! Easter is finally here! Therefore, reform your lives! […]

Nothing Remains New Forever!

 April 20, 2017

Easter – Season of New Life New. Brand-new. Unmistakably new, like the unique cry of a newborn baby, a cry that disappears by the time the infant is three months old. My new car with its new car smell. If I could market that scent, I’d make a fortune. Brand-new. Smells new, looks new. No […]

Promise of a New Day

 April 19, 2017

Easter – Season of New Life Some people think evening is the best time of the day–a time for rest after a day’s work done well. But evening can also be a time for regret, for errors made, for tasks and kindnesses left undone. I prefer the morning with its promises, its opportunities. In the […]

Easter – Season of New Life!


If we die with Christ, then we will surely live with Christ. This is the promise of Easter–resurrection, new life, everlasting–that we celebrate each spring. And springtime makes the believing easier as the world blooms anew in glorious blossom and fragrance. Life can be very hard. The older I get, the more I see of […]

In the Tomb


Holy Saturday Jesus didn’t rise immediately. He didn’t come off the cross in a blaze of glory, but spent some time in the tomb. A time to rest, recuperate, before returning to this world. We also need some time off in between big events. We can’t just go from one to the other without some […]

It Is Finished . . .

 April 14, 2017

Good Friday It is finished. What a good feeling, when we come to the end of a project and are able to sit back and say it is done. But are we ever done while on this earth? There is always more for us to do, more projects to start, journeys to undertake. As long […]

When Your Child Dies . . .


Good Friday When your child dies it is unnatural, out of the natural course of order. When your child dies, life is turned upside-down, topsy turvy, nothing makes sense anymore.
