What if Your blessings come through raindrops and what if Your healing comes through tears What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know that You are near What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise What if my greatest disappointments or the aching of this life Is the […]

An angel

September 3, 2019

In an empty sanctuary She began to play slowly…reverently Just her… her piano and…her God What she could not see was the aging gentleman kneeling in the shadows What a pity she didn’t know that her music soothed the man Transported him from trials and worries…and the stuff best left unworried about His eyes closed […]

One great mom

August 8, 2019

We were in line last night at Sweet Tomatoes near The Park Meadows Mall in Lone Tree. Suddenly, there was a crash near the cash register as a seven year old’s plate hit the floor. I watched to see how the expectant mother would react. She passed with flying colors. There was no anger and […]

Stress

July 7, 2019

‘If you put your nose to the grindstone rough, And keep it down there long enough, You will soon conclude that there are no such things, As a brook that babbles or a bird that sings. Three things will all your world compose Just you, the grindstone and your darned old nose.’ Unknown

Dominic Thiem is in the semifinals of The French Open. He faces an extremely tough task to win the tournament. He plays Novak Djokovic today and, if he wins, would need to beat the 11 time champion Rafa Nadal. Win or lose, he’s had a great tournament and provided lots of excitement along the way. […]

Encouragement

June 3, 2019

We love watching the women’s college softball World Series each year. The enthusiasm of the players and their rabid fans is something to behold. Tonight, one of the announcers was talking about a hitter who was in an 0 for 26 slump. She said the player was ‘taking a long trip on the trouble train.’ […]

A coach wears a multitude of hats. Director…Encourager…Sports Psychologist and more. When all is said and done, a coach who inspires self belief and resilience in her young players is worth her weight in gold.

Do something everyday for no other reason than you would rather not do it, so that when the hour of dire need draws nigh, it may find you not unnerved and untrained to stand the test. William James

No regrets

Many friends are unaware that a much younger cowboy finished second when auditioning years ago for the part of Jethro in the hit TV show The Beverly Hillbillies. When the casting director broke the news to me, she suggested that I hustle over to Lot 19 to see if they were still hiring for Gilligan’s […]

Tranquility

There’s a time for Springsteen, Led Zeppelin, and rock to the max music. But…if you want a dose of tranquility, it’s tough to beat Bill Douglas and The Ars Nova Singers.   ‘My love is like a red, red rose that gently blooms in June My love is like the melody that sweetly plays in […]

A Challenge

February 25, 2019

You’ve probably seen news reports with pretty alarming pictures of sink holes in Florida. It occurred to me that people should be on guard for ‘conversational sink holes’ that can put a damper on your day. Will Bowen is a pastor in Kansas and wrote a best selling book called A Complaint Free World. In […]

Perspective

A very young cowboy has taken author Julia Cameron’s advice and writes Morning Pages each day. They are three pages of streaming thought and the habit is a great way to start the day. Every morning, a part of the writing centers on gratitude and looking beyond the daily, inevitable trials and inconveniences that flow […]
