The gift of unanswered questions

She asks her hardest questions at bedtime, when we flop open the pages of Scripture atop her flowered quilt. We flip through pages of her Bible, rustling like onion skins between our fingers. We land on the story of David and Goliath, and I read aloud the story of a heroic boy who felled a giant with one smooth stone. In the bluish…

Treasure hunt

Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:1-20) One of my son’s favorite games is “Treasure Hunt.” I hide something in the yard or the house and draw out a map for him to find it.  X… marks the spot where the treasure should be.  It is so much fun to watch him run around, count off paces, work

Perfecting the art of imperfection

For years, I didn’t smile with an open mouth. I had a mouthful of crooked, crowded teeth. Imagine a picket fence rearranged by a wildly errant bicyclist — or a Mack truck. That’s what my teeth looked like. I had postponed orthodontic care for years, because in my heightened state of teenage self-awareness, braces…

Anticipation

Emery’s here. She’s a 7 lb.9 oz. bundle of joy!  I am so excited. Our fourth grand baby, born on October 18th couldn’t have come soon enough and we were all smiles when we saw her pretty face for the very first time. What a fun few weeks it has been! Anticipating her arrival got me thinking about another “anticipation”…

Waiting for Emery

In just a few hours, I will be a Grandpa for the fourth time.  I am excited.  The long anticipated Emery Ann Calcara will soon be here. …

The miracle of the happening

Few things get our attention as much as speed. We want the fastest computers, the fastest routes to work, the fastest ways to get rich, the fastest….well, everything. This is why the fastest growing churches often get attention, but the slow and steady often do not. Or immediate healings through prayer, as opposed to…

Anticipation!

Ahhh!  The holidays are just around the corner!  Maybe you are anticipating Thanksgiving and Christmas like I am! What else are you anticipating?  A birthday?  Starting a new job?  How about God to use you to do great things? I remember 7 years ago when I started asking God to use me…yep, use me.  It was just that…

If churches shut down

People across the United States are finding out what it means for their life when the government shuts down.  From this, a new hashtag on Twitter has started: #IfIShutDown.  Dentists are tweeting empty dentist chairs, newspaper editors blank sheets of paper, and Moms and Dads messy kitchens and unsupervised children. But what…
