Heavenly Father, during this weekend of Memorial Day,

I lift up to you each man and woman who has given service to our nation,

especially those who, because of their sacrifice, have returned disabled.

Be with them in their darkest hours.

When they feel weak, give them your comfort.

When they feel despondent, give them your hope.

When they feel like giving up, give them your strength.

                                                                                                              Wrap your care and love around them and their families as they work to heal.

                                                                                                       Give us wisdom to know what we can do to help them, too.

                                                                                                     And fill our hearts with determination

                                                                                                                 To make their way a little easier, their painful return a way to renewal and joy.

                                                                                                  Amen

                                                                                                          Thank you to all veterans and their families!

Chronic Pain: Help for the Directionally Challenged
It's better. It's worse. It moved. It's stable. It's sharp. It's dull. It's pain. And it is a pain, your pain. Well, it's affecting you, but you can't say you actually possess it, because it seems to have a mind - and a direction - of it's own. You're working with your doctors on it, but you f

Giving when you think you don't have anything to give
I understand the Scriptural basis for tithing and giving monetarily to church and charitable causes. I know, clearly, the story of the widow who gave her precious coin to the T

This is the day
Imagine if you gave a good friend a present, all wrapped up and shining in the light. What if that friend, instead of opening the package, set it aside. He or she tells you,

Vietnam War: A Memory for Today
Tucked in a box amid other QSL cards that I found after my father's death last year is a single, fading reminder of a powerful way to pray today. If you're not familiar with what they are, a QSL card is a record sent from one radio ham operator to another that confirms the contact that the two ma

Chronic Illness: How do you describe it, exactly?
Time often flies by when you're living, and when you have a chronic illness, time passes sometimes in odd ways. Slowly, in some measure, because living with pain is especially, well, painful, and the more pain you feel, the slower time seems to move (just think of waiting for a med to kick in, for e
