For the Non-Believers

This picture is for my readers who did not take last Sunday’s post seriously. The pictured tree is located outside of our front door. It’s over four years old now. What do you think the prospects are for this stick becoming a tree?


Signs of Spring

My blogger friends are posting pictures of “signs of spring” they are seeing in their yards. I tried to see if buds are forming on the sticks in our yard that our builder/developer refers to as “trees,” but saw none. So I went to my bedroom to photograph the only signs of spring nearby. Hope my bedspread counts!


Time Away From Home

Twice a year I am privileged to meet with the Board of Trustees of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, as I did this past week. It is always a delight to spend time on this beautiful campus and to hear reports by the committed Christian administrators.

Great academic programs and stellar residential experiences create a balanced learning and social environment for OKWU students. Students and faculty alike understand and affirm the university mission.

The mission: As an evangelical Christian university of The Wesleyan Church, Oklahoma Wesleyan University models a way of thought, a way of life, and a way of faith. It is a place of serious study, honest questions, and critical engagement, all in the context of a liberal arts community that honors the Primacy of Jesus Christ, the Priority of Scripture, the Pursuit of Truth, and the Practice of Wisdom.

Of course, an aerial view is not the one I have while there, but I enjoy walking around the campus and taking in the beauty of each area, from the Lyon Chapel and Fine Arts Center on the east to the La Quinta mansion on the west.


Spring Forward

As a regular church attender, I always have the fear of being embarrassed on “spring forward” Sunday. Because of this fear, the clocks in our home are set ahead very early on Saturday evening.

Below is a song someone sent to me yesterday. Problems churchgoers have on time-change Sundays are addressed in the lyrics. 

Tune: “Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah”


No Warning

My stars and garters! No one bothered to warn me that after cataract surgery more wrinkles and age spots would appear on my face and on the faces of others.  I really think this bit of information should be included along with other warnings about the surgery.
