Sage Sayings #4

Just in time for St. Patrick's Day: St Patrick's Breastplate. Lyrical language, stirring images - all grounded in rich theology. St. Patrick's Breastplate  (attributed to St. Patrick of Ireland - 5th century) I bind unto myself today The strong Name of the Trinity, By...

Prayer ends with a period.

Prayer.  by George MacDonald    We doubt the word that tells us: Ask,  And ye shall have your prayer;  We turn our thoughts as to a task,  With will constrained and rare.   And yet we have; these scanty prayers  Yield gold without alloy:  O God, but he that...

Sage Sayings #3

Today’s Sage Saying - short, sweet, solid. It describes why I savor quotations. They connect my common life with those of others who have been this way before me...   Great thoughts go best with common duties. - Brooke Foss Westcott (1825)     If you'd like to make...

Mid-Winter Blues and Red-Letter Days

The delights of the holidays are a distant memory and the explosion of spring is a vague hope. Are you in need of something to spark your family’s mood in these bleak mid-winter days?   Perfect timing for a Red-Letter Day!   What are Red-Letter Days? A “red-letter...

Sage Sayings #2

Sage Sayings

I collect old quotations. Wise words left by sages. Why do I gather up words written decades or even centuries ago - like fragments of bread and fish in a basket? Because sometimes they confirm my own thoughts, sometimes they shake my thinking, sometimes they stir my...

A Motivated Praying Mommy Shares Her Simple Plan

An interview about Prayer PathWay

Recently, I did an interview with the guys at These Go to 11 podcast. It's a teeny bit about me - some about the origins of Prayer PathWay - and most about prayer rhythms.  I forgot to ask what their name means because I was focusing on not talking too fast! Or saying...

You’re Hungry!

I’ve had several conversations in the last week about devotional life - about the balance between flexibility and structure. And about how the spiritual disciplines need not be construed as legalism.  LEGALISM is the false (and BLASPHEMOUS!) thinking that by our puny,...
