Our Daily Bread

You are our way. You are our path. You are the ground upon which we walk. The place we lay our head. You are our daily bread. You give us our questions, and the answers, but not always as we expect. You are both our need. And the fulfilment of it. But there is a...

The Real Gift

I was watching some reunion videos the other day. Those are the ones where the serviceman or servicewoman returns home after many months to surprise their families. One in particular widened my smile and moistened my eyes at the same time. In it a five year old little...

Simple Pleasures

"You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand." (Ps 16:11) When I was a boy I didn't have a smart phone, home computers were unheard off, and our 13" television could only get one channel...
