Treasures Given Freely

Nothing is more important than The Cross…on which hung the Savior of the world. In today’s busy world we can easily be distracted from this Truth; and then, if we are lucky, He will gently place something in our path as a reminder. Recently my mother has begun the process of separating her belongings among her children.  This usually means taking one of us aside,…

Auschwitz Liberated, January 27, 1945

I have often wondered about the emotions of the Auschwitz liberators.  Joy? Pain? Regrets?  Anger? Or all of the above? My imagination tells me they must have been felt as if they were punched in the gut.  Their silence, and the silence of those saved, must have deafening. Today is the seventy-first anniversary of prisoners being liberated from the horror that was Auschwitz.  Virtual Jerusalem…

Two Dyers, Hundreds of Dead Babies, and Money

Two Dyers, over 100 yrs apart – both making money off of dead babies. Coincidence? You be the judge.

The Freedom to Choose…Really?

Today in…

How many of us can say the same thing? This Christmas, reach out for life.  Do not let…

Grace of Yes Day!

There is a place, in Boston, where people gather everyday and say Yes God.  It is called the Yawkey Family Inn.  This home was built on compassion, it is run on compassion…it is a place where people say “Yes God” every day. It is a place where I was humbled.  It is a place where faith is renewed and strengthened. And, it is a place…

Here I Go Again

It is time to change homes once again, and I know from experience it will not be easy. Trust me – having moved from Connecticut, to Ohio, to Minnesota, and back to Ohio in under thirteen years  I have a faint idea of what I am up against!  Each and every time I have been faced with the same questions and fears: What will my…
