Joy To The World!
Published
For nearly a week, they tell me I was only able to respond to questions by saying yes or no. I could not initiate conversation. I know this is consistent with someone who has suffered from a stroke. Trapped in your own body and fighting for your life,...
Pride Versus Humility
Published
In the classic story, David Copperfield, there is a character who constantly talks about how humble they are. As the story unfolds, however, you quickly discover the self-proclaimed humble character is a self-serving individual who is consumed by...
Thank You For Walking With Me!
Published
My Dear CB Brothers and Sisters, Words cannot express the feelings I have for all of you. I realize that I am a stranger to anyone who joined CB this past December but I wanted to express my heart-felt gratitude toward those friends who have come up...
Get Your Free Minnesota White Christmas Kits
Published
First I want to make a very clear that I have not run this by Diva nor any of the other Minnesotans on this site but I am confident that they will not object to this. At the moment, a winter storm is swirling around me. The actual blizzard will not...
Letting God Do His Job
Published
It is a common scenario. Over 100 second graders are playing on the playground. The shouts of happy children fill the air. Suddenly, a child cries out. Sometimes, all they need is a hug. They tripped or got bumped into and once they've received a...
Wrapped In God's Blanket
Published
The 23rd Psalm is probably one of the most well-known and loved passages in the Bible. Many of us may have even been encouraged to memorize it when we were children. We love the image of the kind and gentle shepherd. We love the first part of this...
Are You Proactive Or Reactive?
Published
Winter is expected to descend upon my house in full force this week. We got a brief taste of it in October with our first snowfall. That quickly vanished. This week we got a dusting of snow which is still here as temperatures have not climbed above...
When The Music Fades
Published
This past semester my son, who is a theatre major, has been taking a modern dance class. Last evening I attended their dance show. While there were some excellent pieces, one of the pieces presented really stood out in my mind. The dancers were out on...
This Is Where Love Lives
Published
When my mom retired and moved back to Minnesota a few years ago, we moved out of the house she owned where we'd lived for 14 years and moved into an apartment for awhile. I remember something one of my son's friends said to me during that...
Reflections On Being A Survivor
Published
December 3, 2007 There is evidence of a spiculated mass in the upper central portion of the left breast with possible satellite lesion. We will evaluate the area with focal compression views and ultrasound. Radiology will schedule additional views of...
Love Is Just Not Words
Published
Tomorrow marks the two year anniversary of the day I learned I had a tumor which turned out to be breast cancer. As with all these "anniversaries" I have a tendency to get rather reflective. The other day I wrote a blog called The...
Committed To Doing Life Together
Published
Doing life together as we do life with God is a phrase I have become very fond of using over the past couple of years. I believe it is an accurate description of the relationship God wants us to have with Him as well as with others, especially those...
We Must Dare To Become Vulnerable
Published
In December 2007, God made it very clear to me that I had to become vulnerable or else! In my case it was not just to one or two people. I had to plaster it up on the internet. I am not suggesting that God is requiring everyone to do that. What I am...
Can We Obtain True Joy And Peace Without Sorrow And Suffering?
Published
Sorrow and Suffering. This is a topic people in general like to steer away from. It is not something we like to think about. We love to read scriptures which make us feel cozy and sing joyous songs. Joy! What a beautiful word! I love talking about the...
The Transcending Love Of God
Published
It was a night of horror. What had begun as an evening celebrating a successful maiden voyage of the Titanic (it was scheduled to arrive in New York harbor two days later) had turned into an unthinkable nightmare. The vessel of whom men had boasted...
The Best Of Good Intentions
Published
Good intentions, we all have them. We think about something and we even say we're going to do but somewhere along the way, we change our mind or we even get distracted. That is what happened to me last night. I'd mentioned in a comment to...
Keep The Porch Light Burning!
Published
Back in July 2007, my son abruptly told me he thought I should blog. I laughed at the very idea of that but it kept going around in my head. I didn't want to just go anywhere though. Any old place did not appeal to me and I didn't want to end...

It is no secret on this site that I, K , have a vice. I am a chocohol...... errr... I mean a chocolate connoisseur. Hey! I am NOT the only chocohol... I mean chocolate connoisseur on this website. There are a number others including our... well,...
Moving Beyond Our Past And Looking Towards The Future
Published
On September 16, 1620 a ship called the Mayflower set sail from the Port of Plymouth in England and headed toward Virginia in what was then referred to as "The New World". It carried 102 passengers. Although the 180-ton ship had been...
Let His Little Child Come In
Published
Jesus loves me! He who died heaven's gate to open wide; He will wash away my sin, let His little child come in. --Anna B. Warner How vividly I remember that Sunday morning when I knelt down and simply told Jesus I was sorry and asked Him to...
No, We Are Never Alone
Published
Earlier this morning, I was reading a blog called Christianblog Announces A New Polling Feature posted by Christianblog. When I got to the last paragraph I read the following words which jumped out at me: If you are alone today - you are not alone -...
Count Your Many Blessings and See What God Has Done
Published
Sitting here in the semi-darkness, I can almost hear the voice of my grandmother singing: When upon life's billows you are tempest tossed; When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost, Count your many blessings, name them one by one, And it will...
Keep Your Eyes On The Conductor!

Every Tuesday afternoon from 2:45-3:30, my students meet with a music therapist for a class which uses music to teach social skills to children. The curriculum is still being developed by one of our second grade teachers and another music therapist....
A Simple Gift of Love
Published
On Monday morning, when I opened my email, I received two beautiful surprises. To anyone else they would have meant very little but to me, they were far more precious than the richest jewels or the purest gold. You see, they were gifts from the heart...
The Power Of Our Prayers
Published
I sat on the hard church pew swinging my legs back and forth to keep them from falling asleep. My eyes never left the screen however, as I watched the filmstrip which accompanied the audio recording of Ethel Barrett telling a "missionary...
