Love Does  I was relaxing with my daughter at a local coffee shop, a delicious Americano in my hand. We happened to see a young man leave the store and drop a book, with a resounding plop, at the register. He tapped the book with his fist, as if to say to the young barista, “there you go” and skipped out quickly, not saying a word. She looked at us with surprise and said “Oh […]

Aunt Polly and Meatballs             My Aunt Polly is 90 years old.  She is spry, dresses in style, cleans her own house, shovels the snow from her driveway in winter, lives in a two-story house with a basement and travels those stairs several times a day.  She is quite impressive and I want to be just like her.             I recently spent a week in her home.  She spoiled me rotten.  Aunt Polly is my […]

Freeway Lessons I was driving home today in bumper to bumper traffic. I looked down for a second and yeah, you guessed it. I tapped the guy in front of me. Now I know everyone says tap, but when I say tap, I mean tap. I didn’t have my foot on the accelerator, just on the brake, but you know how you can be rolling and you don’t even realize it?  That’s what happened. Thank […]

Photo Shooting in the 60’s My oldest daughter and I walk every morning and we’ve never run out of anything to talk about.  This morning she asked me,  “Mom, do you remember when you took David and me to the San Diego Mission de Alcala and out to the bay for pictures when we were little?  You wanted pictures for our Christmas cards one year.” The memory came back as if it was yesterday.  Yes, […]

I’m Not Giving You My Key My best friend was telling me about her new condo and she was excited. She’d been rooming with a co-worker and this new place was all hers and now she would have privacy, not to mention the pool, the clubhouse, the two bedrooms and two baths. I was excited for her and said excitedly, “Now I can come and visit you.” She said, “Yeah, but I’m not giving you […]

More Precious Than Jewels “Who can find a capable wife? She is far more precious than jewels.” (Proverbs 31:10) Beth’s recent email is proof of the wise young woman she is. I wish more young women solved their problems like she does. Here’s what she wrote: “Claudia, I don’t know what I do that encourages the distance between Mark and me. Our anniversary is next week, and I only see grounds to observe it, not […]

Straight Arrows Behold, children are a gift of the Lord; the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver[1] is full of them; they shall not be ashamed, when they speak with their enemies in the gate. Psalm 127:3-5 Think about arrows. Even if you don’t know a whole bunch about them, you would […]

THE COUNSELOR And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counselor to be with you forever— John 14:16 It was early, the first gray light of dawn jut peeking over the hill outside my window. I love it when the world is still and I seem to be the only one awake. I sing, pray out loud and wait as the Word of God settles in and speaks to me. I […]
