Fear Not

I panicked. I was probably 5 years old. I had spent the afternoon with teenager sisters who lived right down the lane from my aunt and uncle. It was growing dark and so I needed to get back to the aunt and uncle’s house. The girls decided it would be fun to scare me.

I picked up my pace and began to run as fast as …

Dreams and the Last Days

While I was talking and looking around, someone took …

For the Road Ahead

Although we’ve taken a few trips, there are special trips we’ve planned for many years. One of these days we’re going to know it’s time and head out. Planning is essential. When you’re on a trip you’ve got to know where you’re going and how you’re going to get there. You also need to know what sights you want to see along the way. Without planning it is easy to get mixed up and focus on the things you really didn’t intend to do. Many sights along the way easily become distractions. Distractions steal time, money, focus and joy. We …
