Enlightenment is a curious thing. It comes in unexpected moments. It comes in all shapes and sizes. I received a moment of enlightenment just recently from the mouth of a babe. I was heading into the local post office to mail out a few checks to pay a few bills. I saw a young woman who had gone to school with my oldest son. On her hip was her little daughter who was no more than three years old. After talking...

When I was a young man, I had been picking up a friend who had been babysitting. As I was waited for him, I noticed a cage and looked inside. Inside the cage there was a cute little hamster, and I put my finger up to the bars of the cage to pet him. He bit me. I went to the bathroom and washed the blood off of my hands. When I came back I was told, “You missed it! You should have seen it! After you left,...

Looking up at the clear blue sky above, it could see a world of freedom. Snow white wings spread open, the young bird got ready to fly. But with a sudden pang of unhappiness, staring at the shackles that bound its feet to the ground, the bird realized it was deprived of the happiness it so longed for. Freedom, perhaps would always be only, "just a dream". The one thing in this world that...

He was one of the most positive, vivid and funny person I ever met. He worked in a McDrive, and he maintained a very good relationship with the customers. Of course nobody knew that he is disabled, because he was always...

By Mindful Fox on January 15, 2018 / 456 views

It is way more helpful to think "What have I NOT YET become?" instead. For all those who feel on their way down instead of an up - I was in near-death situations and crying myself in the pillow out of loneliness too, I get you. But it made me who I am. And your downs are also making you who you are too. And it made me neglect the attitude of constantly losing something, because rather than...

"Who cares?" Over the years I've used this phase in different ways. I've used it when someone has said something I didn't like to shrug off their hurtful remark. I've used it when I wondered if anyone cared. I'm here to tell you I've learned that someone does care! God cares! He cares when someone says things that hurt us. He cares when we're going through hard...

When I was a boy growing up I never looked forward to January. It was a time of short, gray days and long, dark nights. The bitter wind here in the mountains made waiting outside for the school bus very painful. The windows were covered in frost, the sidewalks were slick with ice and the water pipes to the house would freeze at times. Even the floors were cold when I got up in the morning. The Christmas...
