December 24, 2021 Carol Brennan King First, we have had our vaccine shots, all three of them.

But those two affect my family. So how do…Read more Covid and Me…and God: “Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”
I have the practice of reading my Bible daily using a plan that will take me through the Bible in a year. But I read a lot more of the Bible than the approximately three chapters a day it takes to complete a trip through the Bible in a year. And I read lots of other things that cause me to pause and cogitate over the words just read. Sometimes I just have to write, to think the words or thoughts through on paper, to figure out what they say and mean to me, and maybe to someone else.
Those thoughts show up in MEDITATIONS. And, periodically when I houseclean my Blog entries, lots of them will end up stored back here.

Happy New Year!
the list is long of people we have worked with and loved who have passed from this life to the next due to covid. And you know what has helped me the most? The assuredness, the confidence that though they closed their eyes here on earth, they opened them in heaven.
Digesting the Quarantine or Making Sense of the Quarantine
I have trouble praying that God would end the pandemic and end the political mess.
Listening to My Body 9/24/2020
Carol Brennan King An essay for a class I am taking: I lean into the room to hear, to find sounds to write about, but all I hear is the sound of air being sucked through a small floor fan then pushed through the room toward the dehumidifier. Ostensibly, they work together to circulate the…Read more Listening to My Body 9/24/2020
My Foot Hurts and My Heart
Why offend someone even before they have an opportunity to meet our loving God?
Hymns are Never Sung Alone
It came to me that we were with a chorus of believers singing through history, from what I thought then was the late nineteenth century, based on the language of the hymn.
A Meditation: on Prayer July 2, 2020
I find this useful as a guide to help me pray, especially when I need God's help. Or honestly, a way to get started when my mind is full of distractions.
