  • Friendship While in the Wilderness

    Happy Easter! “Let us not grow tired of doing good, for in due time we shall reap our harvest, if we do not give up. So then, while we have the opportunity, let us do good to all”. (Gal 6:9-10) Lent means embracing changes in our lives and our communities. With God’s help, change (mostly […]

  • The Friends of Jesus

    As we enter Holy Week, I am reflecting on the friends that were around Jesus as he made the final walk to Jerusalem.  In that motley crew of disciples we don’t often hear the names of the women who surrounded Jesus.  We know his mother was there, and Mary Magdalene.  We hear of other women like Susanna.  Yet the focus is often on the male disciples with Jesus.  

  • Trail Stairway to Heaven

    Last Saturday, my boyfriend and I hiked the trail known as the Stairway to Heaven, near Vernon Township, NJ.  The day was sunny and cool, in the low 50’s – a great day in spring for a hike!

  • Love and Friendship

    Love and Friendship

    Pyaar dosti hai,Loosely translated from Hindi,“Love is friendship,”As I walk along a path through Myrtle Edwards Park,I joyfully absorb the bright sunshine,Which warms my skin,Glimmers on the Puget Sound,And glistens on the snow of the Olympic mountains,Other pedestrians, joggers, skate boarders, and bicyclists,Imagine I am on a solitary walk,Unseen to all though,I am thoughtfully communing […]

Lord Jesus, help me to show kindness to the stranger.May I share the abundance.You have provided, and give generously to the underserved.Remove the superficial boundaries that separate […]

  • Helping the Friend we will Likely Never Meet

Friends of this blog, from more than 135 countries each day — tens of thousands each week – have spread love and friendship in this Lenten Season. Few know each other. We speak in […]

  • You do not know the whole story…

    It had been a long week for me. So, I decided to reward myself with a relaxing manicure and pedicure, a mani-pedi as we call it. I leaned back in the recliner, placed my feet in the warm water, and began to feel the tension ease out of my body. Suddenly a group of three […]
