Being still is not my strong suit. Waiting and patience… …even less so. As I write this, I’m walking on my treadmill instead of sitting at my desk. I’ve learned the hard way, when I sit too long I get fidgety and bored and

Waiting Well–It’s Kind of Like Making Bread

  I was getting ready to make bread today and started to laugh. I know, a strange thing to do when getting ready to bake. I laughed because I realized making bread is a metaphor for my current season. Have you heard this statement?…

The Lesson of the Five Balls

Have you ever read a book purely for entertainment and then later realized that the book stuck with you? What was intended to be a diversion, a distraction, ended up
