  • When the light shines

    The other morning I was walking my dog out of the neighborhood.  It was a cool morning and the sun was hidden behind a hill.  We suddenly walked out from behind the hill and the chilly morning was no longer chilly.  I could feel the heat of the sun on my face and was struck by how much difference a ball of fire 93 million miles away can make.

  • The sounds of silence

    Do you remember silence? Those times when it would be so quiet that you could hear your own heart beating?  I remember as a little boy going out to my grandparents’ house in the country; it would be so quiet. Oh sure, there were the little sounds like the chirping of crickets or the creak of the house cooling in the evening, but they were such soft sounds.

  • It’s the little things

    Little things make a big difference.  We recently got a hummingbird feeder and my mom is thrilled when those little birds fly in. Just a little hummingbird and yet it brings a lot of joy.   

    In the same way, a simple word of kindness to someone who is having a bad day can be a gift beyond measure.  Sometimes a simple card can encourage and uplift the spirit.  Little things, but somehow they matter to us.
