With stammering lips and insufficient sound
I strive and struggle to deliver right
That music of my nature, day and night …

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Why Blog?

Blogging is a kind of soul therapy for me. I enjoy Bible study, reflection, and thinking. I process my thinking through writing – so my blog is a personal adventure in self-understanding. You’ll find sermon notes, my digging into passages of scripture, personal reflections, poetry, hymns, and more!

Check out these latest posts …

I pray that my reflections and study will be helpful to others, to you, even inspirational and devotional.



… This song of soul I struggle to outbear
Through portals of the sense, sublime and whole,
And utter all myself into the air …

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

I am still learning about the process of blogging even after many years, prayerfully considering the content to share.  One definite purpose still remains — my overarching goal — to honor and glorify my God.

May the King eternal, immortal, and invisible—the one and only God—now be honored and glorified forever and ever. Amen.


Let us, with a gladsome mind,
praise the LORD, for He is kind:
for His mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

Let us blaze His Name abroad,
for of gods, He is the God:
for His mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

He, with all-commanding might
filled the new-made world with light:
for His mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

Let us, therefore, warble forth.
His high majesty and worth:
for His mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

John Milton, 1623
