Remembering Who calls our names

“To remember who creates us and recreates us, who calls us again and again, who knows us completely, and who loves us unconditionally is to be prepared, as Jesus was, for all that is to come. We need have no fear of today or anxiety about tomorrow. We belong to God who claims us as beloved children and holds us close to the embrace of strength and love. Listen and remember today that God calls your name and be transformed and sustained in all that awaits you.”  Reuben Job

And in this spirit, the following prayer really speaks to my daily life: “Loving Lord, in the struggles that I face, help me always to find the right way, or, having lost it, to come back to you.  Only your grace and love can accomplish this. Only in that way do I know blessedness and peace of heart.”

To There and Back: Travels in January, 2013

As you know, Meg and spent six weeks in New Zealand and Australia, from the first week of December, 2012 through the middle of January. We have gone from northern hemisphere winter to southern hemisphere summer and back to winter.  The experience has been exciting and stimulating. From sand and surf in New Zealand and Australia to snow and mountains in La Grande; from boogie boards to snow shoes. We have been blessed by this blend all within one month.
