Fasting doesn’t always have to be food. Fasting can be whatever has your heart, so that giving it up for a period of time is a sacrifice of love.

Who Controls You?

Who Controls You?

Blame sounds like this: “I’m not okay and it’s your fault.” “He makes me so mad.” “She drives me crazy.” “If he would just … then I …” “If she would stop … then I …” Blame is the way we assign responsibility for us to others. It’s the way we dodge being responsible for ourselves. It’s the way we …

The Stranger

The Stranger

I left the party, wondering what the heck had just happened. Out of my mouth had flown the strangest, loudest and most obnoxious things I could think of, and I had absolutely no idea why I said any of them. It was as if someone else, some stranger, had gone to the party, masquerading as me. I kicked myself all …

There to study, pray and write for the day, I noticed for the fourth time that the clock sitting atop of the armoire ticked, but the time never changed. The second hand exerted effort to move the hour and the minute hand around the face of the clock, but …
