It's all too easy for days to pass without reflection. It's my hope that through a greater active awareness on each day, that I will be able to consider God's presence in my life and in the world around me. Writing has always been a way for me to round up my thoughts. This blog seems like a good place to park those thoughts for my own benefit as well as the benefit of others. Please take a moment to read what I have written, to offer comments, and to share the ideas with others.

Stillness and The Wonder of it All

Yesterday's post was about renewal and faith. It has been on my mind. I subscribe to several newsletters and today, one of the items that showed up in my feed was this article by John Patrick Weiss. His bio indicates that he is a former law enforcement officer and current artist/cartoonist-an interesting combination in my book! The article is worth a read if you find that you are frustrated or somehow feeling at your wit's end. And from the standpoint of feeling God's presence in my own life, the article is a reminder that we all experience similar feelings and come at the conclusions from different angles. We are all in the same boat in other words. I take this as a sign and a wonder to pay attention to shared human experiences and emotions.
