Word(s) . Light . Life



If only for
A time
Time would let go
And let me
Measure. Each course
Rivers winding forever
Each winsome song
She’s sung, each cadence
Of centuries old and gone
And, leaving me alone
No stone unturned
If only for
A time
Time would carry me
Where I’d await
In glassy hours
Scouring feathered shores
I’d scoop up sands
And study seashells
If only for
A time
Time would stand
Still. Long enough
To let me hold Time
In my hands

Sunrise at Point Imperial

During our recent trip, Tanya and I originally planned to visit the North Rim of the Grand Canyon for three days. I reserved a spot at the North Rim Campground in Grand Canyon National Park back in May. However, life got in the way (at least in a good way), and Tanya was awarded a full-time teaching job 2 days before we left on the trip, and therefore, needed to be back in Tacoma sooner than our original plan. So I cancelled 2 nights of our campground reservation. As it turned out, we did get three days at the North Rim.

While we were able to drive to the campground near Paria…

Letter from a Bully


In the wake of terrifying attacks on my nation Canada’s capital this week, and in Quebec, and on the streets of NYC in the US…I felt led to reblog this message, originally posted in early 2013…hope it encourages,..and reminds us all…that no matter the threats of harm or alarm… darkness is always overcome by light…

There once was a king in ancient Israel whose kingdom felt shakey. His armies felt broken down and weak. And the king trembled. He had just received a nasty note, “Give it all up. It’s useless. God can’t help you. You’re going to have to serve me from now on!” The tone of the letter wasn’t only threatening, it bore all the markings of an ancient foe…the vilest, meanest, low-down-est, cunning-est, ugliest, copy-catting-est, smart-talking-est, prideful, hateful ol’ bullies and liars of all time. That note echoed the chilling voice of the ‘father of lies’ otherwise known as the devil or Satan,  whom the Bible also describes as ‘the god of this age’, ‘the deceiver’, ‘the serpent’ and (…who…as all of God’s saints know…is already a defeated foe….but…that’s another story).

Now King Hezekiah could have given up right then and there in despair. The note’s threats sounded real and terrifying enough…
