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.

Taking Mirrors Out Of The White House

To my thought, it is expected but not helpful to make Sean Spicer a punching bag. Sure, the line-items seem not to end…as spokesman for President Trump. To narrate what you know and have probably read, mistake after mistake. Not … Continue reading

Strike Three! But Not Out….

Two times. In a global perspective not even a hint of trouble. In my own perspective it might mean I could never swing a bat and run or throw a pitch. Personally? Nice words are devastating. Facing the end of … Continue reading

God…Please Don’t Be A Stranger

The neurosurgeon gave an indelible image of Paul’s cancer. Paul was 18, son of dear friends, back in the 70’s. The parents were told about Paul’s brain cancer, called astrocytoma I believe, “It is like pouring cherry juice into tapioca.” … Continue reading

Dance As If No One’s Looking

I’ve had two dance instructors. Not that I can dance. Or even give it a hoof. The first, probably the 8th grade at the Irvington Club in Portland, Oregon, the Murray Dance Studio. Even number of boys and girls. We’d … Continue reading

Why Do Good…And Do It Well?

Does it matter? Really. Does it matter we see the results of doing good…and doing it well? Certainly. For most of us. We are valued when someone responds…promptly. This morning as my “critters” walked me, a new neighbor, two blocks … Continue reading
