• Watering

    --Video Version-- ------------------------------------------------------ With all the moisture we have had lately, the normally dry creek bed behind our house has water in it. Wintercreek is flowing. I’m thinking about Psalm 78:16 today, “He brought streams out of a rocky crag and made water flow down like rivers.” Water is meant to be contained only in a temporary way for the purpose of taking it in. It is not to be poured into a jar and set on a shelf. Have you ever had a drink of the …

  • Water!

    --VIDEO VERSION-- --------------------------------- Technically, we are still in a drought in Northern California. But it has been raining lately, and I’m thinking a lot about the value of water.

  • Zip It

    --Video Version-- ***************************** With the cooler weather, I wore a jacket this morning. I even zipped it up, and had a moment when I was captivated by the sound of the zipper. Zippers are so cool! If I could stop to reflect every time I worked a zipper, the sound would elicit lots of memories----suitcases prepared for travel, coats closed up in the dead of winter, money pouches secured with pocket change inside, computer cases shut for protection, rubber boots secured befor…
