Art Show – Cahaba Springs Presbyterian Church, Trussville, AL, June 2018

June, 2018

With gratitude for my first Art Show at Cahaba Springs Presbyterian Church, Trussville, Alabama.

Special thanks to Resident Artist Laura McCants Reddick-Reichert for her gifts and grace to me.

For “People on the Go”

I started something new as a spiritual discipline during Lent 2016 called, “Got a Minute?

Got a Minute” is a one minute video reflection as a Chaplain on subjects that give hope and encouragement.

Remember that you are loved more than you know.  God’s peace be with you.

(Here’s a sample of a “Got a Minute” video below.)
The Miracle of a New Heart

Open the old windows of your mind and allow new perspectives to float in.

Treasure Children

Children are our treasure.

They remind us to play, to love, and to dream.

Find a child to encourage today, so that you too can be changed.

Get Along

Great Blue and White Herons

We can learn something from the birds of the air.

The Great Blue and the Great White Herons get along.

And so can we, with one another.  God help us all to “get along.”


Cutting Your Own Path

It may be time to make your own path today.

Lead the way.

Sharp Edges

All of us have sharp edges that need to be smoothed out a bit.

Sometimes it takes the rough grit of sand to change our ways.

Other times, it is the gentleness of water over time to make our edgy selves less so.

Whether sand or water, use what is necessary to smooth the rough edges of  your heart toward the human family.

Remembering Rest

Sometimes we forget, and sometimes we remember.

Rest is necessary for us to be who we truly are.

Take time to rest, listen to your body, and honor its voice.

What’s your next step?
