Nothing is forever - Hebrews 13:


March 6, 2013
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.



I’m feeling nostalgic today after making one last trek to the department store of my childhood. Our downtown Macy’s, formerly Foley’s, is set to close this weekend. The store holds treasured memories of family and friends who joined me on many shopping journeys.  

My brother and I rode downtown on many a Saturday with our grandparents. The guys would drop us off at Foley’s for what seemed like hours. My grandmother would inspect all the merchandise and buy clothes for me. I remember wearing many fashions I didn't like just to please her.

My best friend who passed away many years ago was another shopping companion. We’d buy elephant pants and other "hip" 70s clothing at Foley's. Mostly, we loved riding the escalators and looking at makeup. Later when the name changed, I shopped at Macy’s with my daughter, friends and colleagues for many years.  

The memories will always be with me. Change happens. People, places and things evaporate from our lives. But one constant remains:

God’s love.

Moments with God: When all you can do is cry. Luke 7:36-40

July 7, 2013 Remember the story of the woman who poured oil over the feet of Jesus, wept and kissed him? Luke 7:36-40 The Voice
 Once a Pharisee named Simon invited Jesus to be a guest for a meal. Picture this: Just as Jesus enters the man’s home and takes His place at the table, a woman from the city—notorious as a woman of ill repute—follows Him in. She has heard that Jesus will be at the Pharisee’s home, so she comes in and approaches Him, carrying an alabaster flask of perfumed oil. Then she begins to cry, she kneels down so her tears fall on Jesus’ feet, and she starts wiping His feet with her own hair. Then she actually kisses His feet, and she pours the perfumed oil on them.
That's how I felt.  Yesterday I had a memorable “point in time.”  My ear tuned to a melody:  “The King of Heaven’s Armies is right here by my side. “   Tears trickled down my cheeks unexpectedly. The Lord knows my real heart (and your real heart, too).  There’s no hiding. In that perfectly overwhelming moment i…
