Control

When we are young we believe we have the world on a string. Everything and everyone we know on the end of a string as we fling them back and forth, in and out, like a yo-yo whenever and wherever we want. We think we are the center […]

Life More Abundant

Life is about balance, keeping an even keel on a constantly changing sea of circumstances and emotions. The up then down, back then forth nature of life can be exciting and unnerving at the same time, and not being able to see over the next wave can be […]

Light In Dark

Our family is not big on Halloween. We have never understood how fear could be made fun and the darkness of death glorified. Perhaps our experiences of the reality of fear and of death have come close enough for us to realize how not fun they are. Or […]

Our Flag

Growing up on a farm out in the middle of nowhere in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula in the 1970’s and 80’s provided little access to the world. We were twenty miles from the nearest hospital in one direction and twenty miles from the nearest ‘big town’ of Houghton in […]

Shine On…

We all have a lighthouse or two in our lives. For some it is a brother or sister and for some it may be an aunt or uncle or grandparent. For many it is a parent. Though at times in our lives we seem to believe we know best and everyone else is wrong because “they just don’t understand”, somewhere we know our lighthouse still stands, and deep down we crave their guidance. They signal warning when difficult times approach, and welcome when the road has been long and we are weary from travel.
