The Dawning Of Grace

 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appearedhe saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior…
Titus 3:4-5
This morning I stepped out of my front door into the stream of sunlight that fell shadows across the frosty lawn. It made me think of His appearing and the verse that my Sunday School Boys are memorizing. 
But as I clicked away pictures of the sun peeking through the trees, I realized that I was most struck by the power of the shadows, long across the lawn. Then it dawned on me that I am most keenly aware of the power and presence of His light and presence when the shadows are stretching long in and around my life. 
Praise the appearance of His kindness and love in our Savoir Jesus Christ!
Have a Glorious Palm Sunday!

When You Least Expect It: Watch Out!

There I stood. Working my shift at the bank. I had just returned from checking on Sheila who was sitting at the Drive Through window.They burst through the door like two cannonballs fired abruptly. I froze solid.
My breath was somewhere between my chest and the back of my throat. I gasped and they immediatly commanded me to “Freeze” with my hands in sight. If I wasn’t in shock I might have said, with a touch of sarcasm, “Can’t you see me here “freezing”, idiot? Believe me my sarcasm was nowhere in sight. Fear clutched  my heart, as my mind tried to make sense of it all. It was all so fast. Yet slow motion. I heard “No-one will get hurt, as long as you do as your told.” My heart raced. The room was spinning. I felt dead, but the adrenalin coursed through my veins. Stillness and speed, every fiber of my being about to erupt. “Breathe.” I hear my own voice repeat within my head. “Just Breathe.” Oops, that was out loud. My words are met with immediate response: “Just shut-up or die”. Suddenly, I realize…it’s all a joke. April Fool’s Day! Ha! Did I have you going? Did you like the way I sucked you in? Are you breathing? Are you OK? You know I have never worked in a bank, right? I was just practicing a little bit of my Fiction Writing. What do you think? Not speaking to me because I gave you a heart attack? Sorry about that. I think the reasonable thing to do here is forgive me. Right? Right? I couldn’t resist. It’s the Rabid Writer in me! Happy April Fools Day! Enjoy and Happy Pranking!
