Is There Hope in an Ever Changing World?

My Yearbook Picture

Not long ago, I found my high school yearbook. It was like looking at a snapshot of life as it was over 50 years ago.

As I glanced through the pictures, I realized that life as I knew it back then changed instantly the day I touched my diploma.

All those classmates I had lived to impress, all those friends who promised to keep in touch, disappeared.

Life as I knew it changed overnight. 

Those Two Little Words

Hey, Wake up! It’s Lighten Up Monday! Sometimes the behaviors that limit us are complex and require time and counseling to resolve. Other times we are just avoiding the obvious and prolonging the agony.

Who’s Driving?

Suddenly, a car slowly came toward him and stopped.

Blinded by the rain and darkness, he jumped into the back seat, closed the door and then realized there was nobody behind the wheel! The car started moving slowly and then headed straight toward a curve. Scared to death, he started to pray, begging for his life.
