When I was growing up my family owned a gift shop. When you are in the gift business, your life revolves around holidays. Good thing we loved holidays! Although Christmas was magical, it was also exhausting and back then there seemed to be a lot of pressure on giving to everyone. People were stressed and harried. That’s why my father’s favorite holiday was Easter. He always said people give at Christmas because they have to, people give at Easter because they want to. Easter was big with an egg tree and decorations. Pastel colors, chicks and bunnies abounded but one set of decorations gives me the fondest memories.

Thankfully, God is the forgiving parent of the prodigal son. He continues to renew his affirmation with us through the extension of grace.Read more

I used to start off each year with a list of New Year’s Determinations (the idea of resolutions drives me crazy). Intentionally, I chose determinations because, by golly, I was going to do them! Perhaps not perfectly, but I was going to do them. For the most part I did instill those small changes and they have stuck.Read more
