Good morning: In the village of Borja, Spain there is a small chapel with a portrait dating back to the 19th century of Christ wearing a crown of thorns. About six years ago an 80-something woman with no art background decided the portrait needed a little touchup. So one night equipped with brushes and paints,…

Good morning: “I’ve got this!” Have you said that lately as a dose of self-encouragement? It’s Monday morning at work and you have a challenging 40 hours ahead. An appointment for a dental crown is staring at you from Google calendar. You need to have a difficult conversation with a son or daughter. There is…

Good morning: Have you ever gone to the doctor with a self-diagnosis already in mind. Maybe you googled your symptoms and were convinced that what you needed to feel better fast was a course of strong antibiotics. Did the doctor take your word for it and hand over the prescription, no questions asked? Or did…

Good morning: When a word is so offensive that people don’t want to even say or write it, it will often be referred to simply by the number of letters the word contains. We hear of a “three-letter” or “four-letter word” which no one wants to mention. There is a “six-letter word” in Scripture which…

Good morning: If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? Some set a goal of losing weight or gaining muscle tone. Others wish to be more organized or less stressed. Would you want to be more outgoing and brave, a better student, a more diligent employee? People try to reinvent themselves…

Good morning: What would you think of a dishwasher which cleaned the outside of cups and bowls to a spotless, germ-free shine, but did nothing with the inside? The dishes would look great stacked in the cupboard, but who would want to use them with leftovers from previous meals stuck to the inside? Jesus once…

Good morning: When I was in college I had a conversation with someone who said that he didn’t have an opinion regarding Christianity. He wasn’t going to take “sides,” he told me. His thought was that if he didn’t come down either for or against Christianity or any other faith, he wouldn’t have to worry…

Good morning: It seemed like a good idea at the time. A man wanted to drain the gas tank of his lawn mower at the end of the season. Why not, he thought, grab the shop vac and use it to quickly empty the tank? It worked beautifully for the first few seconds. But just…
