Lessons From a Naked Tree

Yesterday as Don and I drove to an appointment, a tree caught my eye. Planted in the median, it towered above the road in magnificent, round splendor. Progressing from the trunk, sturdier branches spawned thinner ones, reaching up and out until the branches became so thin you could barely see them.

Loaves and Fishes

This morning, I read in Matthew 14 about Jesus feeding the 5,000. As I read, these two verses jumped out at me:

As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.”  Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” (Matthew 14:15-16 NIV)

Translated: “Don’t send them away to someone / something / somewhere else, you take care of them.”

Fitness Friday: Oh Me of Little Faith

This week I am blessed to be in sunny, warm Florida. Right now I’m looking out at a peaceful pond with a fountain in the middle, blue skies, and gently swaying palms. What a beautiful day!

Ahhhhh….relaxation at its best.

But my week didn’t start like this.
