The rugged path toward love – and peace

“Love in the same manner as Christ loved us.” This is repeated multiple times and ways throughout the message of Jesus and the letters in the New Testament. But, how Lord, how do we love those who are unloveable, who intentionally seem to brush against the raw areas of woundedness in our lives, even the ones […]

A Child’s view

Mimi’s musings My 22-month-old grandson is my teacher, and spending time with him teaches me so much about the importance of being childlike (not childish).

I have often remarked how autism is a great magnifier. Everything feels major. It is hard for a person with autism to see the ‘Venn’ in the Venn diagram (remember those?

A Mother’s Prayer

Hey guys, this is Mom. Have a seat here next to me while we have a chat… As I listen to the news or even public conversations, I am stunned at the realization of how quickly wisdom and common sense is being eroded. In fact, what I knew of common sense, common courtesy, commonality, and […]

Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me

In my previous blog, I put forth an appeal for American presidential candidates, media, celebrities, and all citizens to lay down the weapons of stinging, biting judgmental words and consider a cease fire.
