altar of alterations

Change is the certainty of life —

we (un)certainly hold choice in our hands:

to fear strangeness of change,


to face love’s changing challenge;

to hide from (unfamiliar) monsters


to seek soul (familiar) opportunities

to shrink


to grow!

As we embrace each (minor) moment’s exchange,
we may become (major) catalysts for change:

watch butterflies emerge

encourage spirit’s surge

relieve evil’s scourge.

One must learn to trust the unchangeable One

who forms life

transforms change

conforms us

until his perfect (and perfecting) will be done.

fresh aire


a brisk walk

an honest talk

a good read


an art fest

a media fast

a child’s play


a full cup

a warm hug

a favorite song


an open Bible

a quiet meditation

a simple prayer


awakens heart


stirs creativity


motivates change.
