Thoughts on Easter Saturday

I wonder what thoughts were in Mary’s mind as she lingered near the cross of her Son. Was she too hoping for a miracle? Her heart must have been breaking, surely angels would come and rescue heaven’s own – how could this be …

Thoughts on Good Friday

    Good Friday is only good for us. For the Lamb of God who took away the sin of the world, it was not a good Friday. The unfair trial, false accusations, and the humiliating spectacle they made of the Lord Jesus …

You Can Make It!

I watched a fascinating documentary. A lone polar bear was caught in a quick spring thaw. This big fella had been enjoying the end of winter; relaxing in the sun and frolicking on the ice, until the warm sun caught him by surprise …

Miracles in 2017!

Happy New Year’s I love New Year’s Day. It’s my favourite day of the whole year. It’s new, fresh and full of promise – miracles. “Miracles are supernatural events that supersedes natural laws”. Do you need a few of these this year? Last …

  The day dawned like the one before – bright and sunny. The young student laced her runners, snapped on her water belt and she was off. Early morning jogs are the best – she hoped today she’d clear the fog in her …

Heaven’s Arrivals!

Her plane landed. She retrieved her luggage and quickly walked towards the arrival doors. When they opened, that’s when I saw her. I watched this young lady scan the crowd for the familiar face she had come to see. I’d say she was …

Random Act of Kindness

When you get married you have these lofty thoughts on what marriage will be like. Cooking beautiful 4 course candlelight dinners – you’ve found each other and whew – off you go … I too had the same thoughts decades ago and still …
