What Time Is It?

Tuesday, June 12, 2018

I have a mantle clock. It's quite old. It needs winding about once a week. Because it chimes the hour, re-setting it is a pain if I forget to wind it and it stops, because I would have to allow all the chimes to cycle. So, when it stops, I … Read more

The Right Time

Wednesday, May 11, 2016

I find myself putting in the time sitting on my recliner knitting more dolls. Even though I see double at times, each doll forms out properly — it is all from old know-how and memory. I noticed that the clock on the wall was out of sync … Read more

The Essential Character

Friday, December 7, 2012

As I was remembering past Christmases, an incident came to mind from the very first year of my former ministry here in Mission, British Columbia, Canada, back in 1987.

Right Man For The Time

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

I'm recovering from surgery. In a local big-box store is a Customers' Helper. I give her a list and as I wait with my walker, she brings things for my approval. She also takes the cartload to my car while I drag behind.

The Waiting Room

Wednesday, December 27, 2006

A waiting room is a terrible place. Through the births of four grandchildren and many surgeries of my family members, I can testify to this fact. Sitting in a waiting room, one's emotions run the gamut from fear to hopefulness. … Read more

From Impossible To Possible And Promise
