Out Our Way: Along the Covenant Trail with Goliath

Out our way, we often marvel at the resilience of creation. A few years ago I rode with some fellow pastors through a portion of "The Bob" - Bob Marshall Wilderness - a year after a terrible forest...

 

Pastor's Corner: Thankfulness and giving are at the very core of true joy

Over the years, I have come to realize that thankfulness and giving are at the very core of true joy. This is illustrated in the Gospel of Luke 17:11-19. Call me a stickler. Call me a creature of habit. Call me ADD. For the past 25 years and...

 

Hello God. It's me, Mara

You know, Lord, an article on care giving reminds us how hard and stressful the work is and that caregivers, even if they feel good about the chance to give back, need to take care of themselves, too. Albeit, there is bound to be feelings of...

Out Our Way: Along the Covenant Trail with Goliath

Out our way, I saw a sad sight last week. For many years I boarded Goliath and Babe at a friend's place just outside of town - and what a place it was! In addition to my horses, the back corrals were...

 

Hello, God, It's me, Mara

You know, Lord, wind can really kick up storms, or sometimes, maybe, wind just has “fun” tossing lovely autumn leaves around, hither and thicker. When storms happen, depending on where one lives, wind strips the last leaves off the nearby trees,...

 

Grief Poem - Show God's Love

You’re missed dear one — you flew away, you were “our” helping hand. No matter what we do down here, we know you’re where it’s grand.   It’s autumn now, there’re leaves to rake, the colors are pure art. The grass and trees and mounta...

 

Hello God. It's me, Mara

You know, Lord, sometimes one comes across some very interesting reading. Author unknown mentioned that the blood of us humans makes a complete circuit every 23 seconds. Amazing! The author mentioned a few more of Your creations, Lord: the inside of...

 

Out Our Way: Along the Covenant Trail with Goliath

Out our way, there are some things that are just not going to work no matter how badly we want them to. A Shetland pony is not going to be a good roping horse and even those cute miniature horses are...

 

Finishing Well: Leaving an inheritance

Proverbs 13:22 A good man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous. Finances are a large part of people’s concerns as they age. A legitimate concern is will I have enough to make...

 

Hello God. It's me, Mara

You know, Lord, we all need encouragers on a so-so day, or when we’re discouraged. That occasionally happens to all of us, no matter who we are.  A friend called her encouragers, “balcony people,” like a cloud of witnesses cheering us on, but...

 

Out Our Way: Along the Covenant Trail with Goliath

Out our way, before I ride, Goliath and I have a time of working out on the lunge line. I also work with his left and right side to make sure he yields to the reins. The reason is simple - horses...

 

Finishing Well: How to pay for what is needed

Proverbs 6:6-8 Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. As part of this series of articles on aging we began to...

 

Pastor's Corner: What would happen if we took responsibility?

Fall is upon us, the seasons they are a-changing, and change is in the air. Can we say the same for ourselves? Our world is a mess, our country is a mess, and so are our states and our cities. We have become a world and society where everything is...

 

Hello God. It's me, Mara

You know, Lord, some bumper stickers are worth a chuckle or a big smile; for instance, this one: “I’m in the initials stages in my golden years.” It then listed initials: S. S., C D’s, IRA’S and AARP. As we age, those initials may appear...

 

Out Our Way: Along the Covenant Trail with Goliath

Out our way, the first of the Alberta Clippers hit and hit hard last week. Even old Goliath found the 12 inches of snow that fell, not to mention the trees destroyed and the power outages that hit...

 

Grief Poem - AUTUMN

It’s autumn now, we know you’ve gone, just wishing you were here. The leaves do change, the wind does blow, and snowflakes may fall near!   We know it was your time to go; this year has whizzed by fast! Summer did come and now it’s gone, warm...

 

Hello God. It's me, Mara

You know, Lord, sometimes one hears precious things little children say, or a friend shares what their little one said. Here are several that show just how much God works in the lives of children.   “Jacque” shared that she and her 3- year-old...

 

Finishing Well: Salvation is free, everything else has a cost

Proverbs 21:20 In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has. In my last article on aging we looked at the topics of nutrition, housing, and transportation. All of these areas require finances....

 

Out Our Way: Along the Covenant Trail with Goliath

Out our way, some of the old west still lingers. It is not just the ranchers and cowhands we see in town, or the trail drives up to Beaver Creek that remind us of what was once the norm, but also...

 

Out Our Way: Along the Covenant Trail with Goliath

Out our way, there are times when even big old Goliath knows to follow the lead of someone else. While Babe is a much smaller horse, Goliath knows that in many ways she is smarter and wiser, and so...

 

Finishing Well: Nutrition, housing and transportation

John 13:34 A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. Nutrition, housing and transportation are three practical areas that need to be considered as major parts of the aging process. In our...

 

Hello God. It's me, Mara

You know, Lord, sometimes we need a bit of encouragement to carry on, no matter what we’re “struggling” with. Occasionally help comes from the most unexpected places. It was interesting reading a devotional about how death can be kind. The...

 

Out Our Way: Along Goliath's Covenant Trail

Out our way, the air is chilly but it is clean and fresh at last. For months we have cried out to the Lord for rain and then the fires came and filled the air. "Where is the Lord?" some asked. And...

 

Hello, God, It's me, Mara - Heaven scent

You know, Lord, autumn is a season of comforting scents. Can’t we just remember back when we were kids at home and got to go to Margie’s house? Sometimes she would serve hot apple cider to us girls, especially if we had helped fold the laundry, w...
