Tapping Into Our Hearts

Got five minutes?

Not even that.

I can only ask…I can only invite…I can only encourage…I can only recommend.

Give a gift to yourself.

Put the list away. Erase, if possible, mentally, what aches you, what plagues you, what besmirches you.

Listen, if you will, to this young girl as she plays the trumpet.

And give thanks…for those whom you know who have served our country for the goodness and liberty and value of what we have. Give thanks to God for your own life and for the blessings of friendship—for friends who need you, who value you, who believe you give them purpose, yes even joy and hope.

The list can wait. The day can wait. Our lives can wait. Really. Just five minutes, not even that.

Give this as a gift to yourself before the first step in a new day.

About Mark H Miller

Diane and I live in Leander, Texas. This past June 17, 2015 I celebrated the 49th anniversary of my ordination. We returned to Texas after three years in Washington, during which I served as interim minister in Bellevue/Eastgate and Mercer Island. Am planning to begin a 5th novel that will have my protagonist, Tricia Gleason, serve a year in licensed ministry in Snoqualmie, Washington. The novel, "The Lemon Drop Didn't Melt," will find Tricia wrestling with ministry challenges. None of which more daunting than someone wanting her breathing to stop. All the published novels are available on Amazon and Amazon Kindle under Mark Henry Miller. A primary goal in our return to Texas is to make sure grandchildren get lots of attention--here and in Chicago and Washington, D.C. Traveling is definitely an activity that will not slow down. With that, of course, fishing will happen. To that the t-shirt is apt, "I fish; therefore I am." In addition to novels, the book of Blogs, "Voice Of My Heart," is also available on Amazon.
