Cozies 

Tips for the Traveler #323 If you see a craft fair, pull in. A nice lady there makes cozies for anything you happen to own.

The Conversation 

So there was this guy named Ray…

Traveler’s Tip # 322: If you find yourself in an Irish pub, or a breakfast hole in the middle of Montana—or anywhere in the world come to think of it—and a trucker or cowboy or farmer or tractor mechanic says, “So there was this guy named Ray,” there’s a 60/40 chance it’s going to be a good story.

Let’s see where this one lands. Roll the dice. Could go either way.

Ray never showed much emotion. In fact in the weeks, months, years I knew him—every Thursday at the… Read more

The Second Most Beautiful Thing 

            There are many kinds of sunsets. In fact, if you think about it, there’s one happening every second of every day somewhere in the world. Old Man Sun eases his body down on jungles, plains, and mountains. He sinks, hissing into rivers, and casts his fading gold over the summer children who laugh and splash in the shallows. He bounces off sheets of ice and sets oceans on fire. The sun dies a hundred, a thousand, a million deaths a day—yet remains a grand and eternally optimistic Romeo, offering… Read more

Immediate God  

If God is God it stands to reason that I'm not God. I'm glad I'm not God. You should be glad I'm not God. I'm finding in Him a love that I can't begin to understand let alone imitate. He's present and immediate in our lives should we choose to seek Him. I choose to. I have to. I need to. I'm in thankful mode today, watching miracles drop around me like apples off a tree. 

Walking with my Friend,

Tips for the Traveler 

 Traveler's Tip #321: If you're in the Twin Cities, on the St Paul side, don't ever EVER say that you're enjoying the Minneapolis area.
Traveler's Tip #322: If you in fact blunder into #321, you can diffuse the situation by pumping your fist and shouting GO VIKINGS! Then, no matter which area you're in someone will give you a hug.

Boxes 

I'm seeing more and more clearly that we moderns, especially westerners, have become very good at shoving everything into our own particular and comfortable boxes. We have work boxes, play boxes, family boxes, friend boxes, faith boxes... This isn't the way we were created, but the way we've become. Our one purpose on this planet is communion with God. This single fact splinters to bits any box we can build. Worship is why we're here. We can no more compartmentalize worship and communion with the One who… Read more

Orange Moon 

It's always a strange feeling to take a song, birthed in some dark, quiet and often very private place, and drag it out into the light of day, in front of a room full of people. Just the fact that this can happen, and to see an audience respond on a real level, is a miracle to me. I've been answering emails this morning from very nice and sometimes broken people who were moved last night by some of the words and rememberances of this journey. So encouraging. It reminds me that we're all in this together. We… Read more

White Knuckles 

 “Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public.”
- Winston Churchill

"The Miracle Man" is in the second layer of editing, all active verbage and syntax correct hopefully. Getting closer to the time someone might actually read this thing. Oh boy...

Miracles 

So the wifi at Starbucks is out. Don't worry, it'll be up tomorrow... Tomorrow I'll be two hundred miles south of here. Oh well, Staples parking lot has internet so it all works out--and the sun's coming out in West Seattle. Had a wonderful time at Calvary Chapel Paulsbo last night, followed by a midnight ferry run from the island into downtown Seattle. We were the first car on the boat so the view spread out before us unhindered. Just awesome. I'm continually blown away by small daily miracles. Many who… Read more
