Good morning: Every so often during the past month I’ve received a text or email with the same short message: “Your package has been delivered.” At first reading it might not seem like much, but it never fails to brighten my day. It means that something I ordered online and then possibly forgot all about…

Good morning: Still looking for that perfect gift for your spouse, children, co-workers, or friends? Every year I think, “This Christmas I’ll find the gift that will be remembered for years to come. It will be just the right size and color. It will be that gift which is treasured and used often, not the…

Good afternoon: No sooner was the turkey whisked out of the oven, the mashed potatoes put in a serving bowl, the pumpkin pie cut, the table quickly cleared, than everyone rushed out the door to snag bargains before they were gone. At least that’s the impression I got from the media reports today. Is that…

Good morning: Ready for the big day? If someone asked that question, how would you respond? Would you answer, “Sure, I can hardly wait for Thanksgiving!” Someone else might say, “I’m counting down the days till Christmas,” or “I’ll graduate in six months.” There are all kinds of “big days” for which we plan and…

Good morning: “…And they all lived happily ever after.” Who doesn’t like a happy ending to a fairly tale, a novel, or the latest movie release? Yet most people will also quickly add a disclaimer: “That would never happen. It’s just a story. Things never work out like that in real life.” The evidence would…

Good morning: Does God care that I woke up with a headache? Does the stress of your job show up on His radar? What about the sadness for which you can’t even find a reason? Do the passing, “little” things of life matter to Him, or is He only concerned with the more important spiritual…

Good morning: The Reformation should have failed. By any reasonable measure, there was no way that it could accomplish what it did. How could a “shabby little monk,” as Luther was called, possibly have any impact on the Roman Catholic Church, the most powerful institution in the world? Who would listen to him? Who would…

Good morning: Of all the words in all the songs ever written, perhaps none is used more often than the word “love.” Everyone recognizes that love is important to our relationships in life. But it also seems to be such a temporary, fragile thing. Countless upbeat lyrics and exuberant melodies express the joy of newfound…

Good morning: There are certain times when you can’t wait to share news. It’s nearly impossible to hold it in until you get home. Waiting a few seconds for someone to answer their phone can seem like hours. You can’t send an email or text fast enough. You feel like you might explode if you…

Good morning: The first time I saw the ocean was on a family vacation to San Diego. As soon as the water came into view, I pulled the minivan into a parking spot and we all jumped out and headed for the beach. It was an awesome sight! The vast size of the ocean, the…
