If I Only Had The Time

If I Only Had The Time



If you had a bank that credited your account each morning with $86,400 - with no balance carried from day to day - what would you do? Well, we do have such a bank...time.

Every morning it credits us with 86,400 seconds. Every night it rules off as "lost" whatever we have failed to use toward good purposes.…

The Seed

The Seed



A successful businessman was growing old and knew it was time to choose a successor to take over the business.

Instead of choosing one of his Directors or his children, he decided to do something different. He called all the young executives in his company together.

He said, "It is time for me to step down and choose the…

Butterfly Miracles

To live in hearts we leave behind Is not to die.

~Thomas Campbell, "Hallowed Ground"

I rummaged through the small cardboard box that passed for my jewelry box. On a mission to get rid of anything unworn, I gasped as my hand touched the metal butterfly — no bigger than a half dollar.

Clutching it to my aching…

The Wemmicks

The Wemmicks

The Wemmicks were small wooden people.

Each of the wooden people was carved by a woodworker named Eli. His workshop sat on a hill overlooking their village.

Every Wemmick was different. Some had big noses, others had large eyes. Some were tall and others were short. Some wore hats, others wore coats. But all were…

Cannery Row

http://www.thereflectionhouse.com/songs/JBS.mid

A Life Lesson: Cannery Row

A 1982 Film from John Steinbeck's Book Cannery Row has a life lesson, that if we could all learn, would make life a whole lot more enjoyble and a whole lot less stressful.

We are born with a people package. In it, are many contradicting forces at work. The one that causes us and everyone else the most problems is "It's all about me." or…

"Judge No Wine Before Its Time..."

Wine Growers' Creed

There was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn not to judge things too quickly. So he sent them each on a quest, in turn, to go and look at a pear tree that was a great distance away.

The first son went in the winter, the second in…

What Can I Give?

My wife and I had just finished the 150-mile trip home from our daughter’s college. It was the first time in our lives that she would be gone for any length of time. We wondered how other people had survived it.

Later in bed, I thought of the time I started college. My father had driven me too. We rode in the farm truck. In the back was the…

THE OLD FISHERMAN



Our house was directly across the street from the clinic entrance of Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore . We lived downstairs and rented  the upstairs rooms to out-patients at the Clinic. 



One summer evening as I was fixing supper, there was a knock at  the door I opened it to see a truly awful looking man. 'Why, he's hardly …

I Owe You Nothing...or Do I?

Her protests were louder than usual. This morning, the Oldsmobile engine sounded more like a horse neighing than any modern mode of transportation.  She sounded like I felt. It was clear she needed a cup of tender loving care.

I wish I could afford to give it to you gal, I thought. I pumped a little gas…

New Vision

Never, never, never give up.

~Winston Churchill

It was Easter vacation and I was home from the university for ten glorious days. I knew how much my mother missed me while I was at school and I knew she was going to cook all of my favorite foods and spoil me rotten.

I was an art student and would graduate with my degree in two…

Ruby's Roses

Tearing down the wall and using the bricks to build a bridge...

The neighborhood kids nicknamed the cranky old couple Crazy Jack and Ruby Rednose. Rumor was that they sat inside and drank whiskey all day. 

It was true that Jack and Ruby Jones preferred to keep to themselves. About the only words we ever heard from them were…

The Woodsman and the Leprechaun

Long ago, a woodsman saved the life of a leprechaun and was given one wish. The woodsman thought for a long time and finally wished that each of his three daughters find a good husband.

But the leprechaun was full of games. "How am I to know what's good in your mind? I'll give them husbands, but you can name only…

Things God Uses

I stood on the front porch, finger poised at the doorbell. Just what am I letting myself in for here? I wondered. I’d never been to Brian’s house before. Friends at church had set us up and I liked him right away.

We had so much in common-similar upbringings and the same love of faith and family. We were both in our late thirties and…

God's Mountain Garden

The best place to seek God is in a garden.

~George Bernard Shaw

I grew up on a farm in the mountains of northwest Arkansas. As children, my brother and I roamed every inch of the little mountain facing my parents' house. We knew where every giant boulder and animal burrow was on that little piece of mountain…

Expanding Horizons

Bob joined us just before Christmas of 2010. He was a stray cat living outside the office where Ginny worked. She and her co-workers kept him and the other strays fed. The weather grew cold. Ginny lost her job. "I'm not leaving him!" she said to me. So Bob came home for Christmas.

Four months later, Bob was still with us. We took him to the…

Letters to Mamaw

To send a letter or share an experience, is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart...



My grandmother's eightieth birthday was approaching and I was at a loss as to what to give her. She had recently moved into a nursing home and didn't have room for extra "stuff." She insisted that…

Who dares to teach must never cease to learn.

It is a humbling experience when teachers are the ones who are also learning in their very own classroom. After high school and college, it might seem as if the days of tests and homework are over; however, when 150 students…
