Comfort One Another

Tapped Out Of Dreams

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

I can’t remember what it was about. I can’t remember who was in it. All I remember is that it was a happy place. Relaxing. Peaceful. Serene. Everything good dreams are made of. TapTapTapTapTap. Each poke of her little index finger on my shoulder hit the elevator button on my slumber, bringing me up from […]

Prayer At The Pumps

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

When I work in Roswell, New Mexico I always go to Sam’s Club to fill up my gas tank. Not to save a nickel a gallon, though that’s nice, too. I go in hopes that Bob will be on duty. It’s supposed to be a three hour drive from Lubbock to Roswell but it’s funny […]

No Words

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

It was January of 1994. The first night of my first ever seminary class. I sat down at a round table and shook hands with a guy I knew went to the same church I did, but had yet to meet. “Hi, I’m Greg.” “I’m Todd. Good to meet you.” Dr. Oberholtzer opened the class […]

Airport Chapel

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

Last week I had a three hour layover at the Dallas-Ft. Worth airport. After a lunch, perusing the bookstores and a couple rides around on the tram, there was nothing to do but walk around. In Terminal E I noticed a small room designated as an airport chapel. A place for travelers to stop and think and pray. Just […]

Circle

Friday, April 25th, 2008

Thursday morning westbound on Loop 289. It’s school morning drive time. They’re in the back seat, munching on a Granny Smith apple. So far we’ve discussed what Jesus is doing in heaven right now, where He’s sitting up there and is He tall enough to step right over the city of Lubbock. The girls and I have a […]

Found

Monday, April 7th, 2008

Out of the elevator and rounding the corner on the 2nd floor of Carillon House, Emma spots her first. “Daddy, look! There’s Hazel!” Annie and Emma take off running to give her a hi and a hug. At the other end of the long hall, sitting in her wheelchair, is Hazel. She came here a […]

Extra Cars

Wednesday, September 24th, 2003

The extra cars parked in front of the house could have been there for any reason. A gathering of friends to watch Monday Night Football. A Pampered Chef party. A Neighborhood Watch meeting. Maybe even a Bible study. There’s lots of houses in this valley of 3 million people and more cars than houses. So […]

Annie’s Duffle Bag

Tuesday, May 14th, 2002

“Excuse me…could I get a drink of water?” She must have asked the question at least three times but I didn’t hear her over the spray of the garden hose. It was a Saturday afternoon during my last year of seminary. I was washing my truck in the driveway and a couple of stubborn tar […]
