8:18

Face time

September 8, 2018
This morning, my pareidolia is acting up.
The candle appears like an apparition in my darkened room, aglow without a flame.
I ask Kim simply, “What do you look for?”
I can pinpoint the moment when my dark mood began to lift.
The sculpture caught me by surprise, like some malevolent spider on the wall.
As I wander around this small, tourist town, I just keep thinking, “Why lighthouses?”
This is the best 8:18 moment in a century.
It’s our fourth time and it isn’t getting any easier.
I’m walking in downtown Houston when a sign gets all in my business.
If change is inevitable, why is it so painful?
My daughter and I are gawking at a mushroom that is small, shiny and gaudy purple.
As the captain scans the watery expanse for feeding birds, I am distracted by thoughts of Simon Peter.
The long balloon is quickly transforming in my brother’s hands.
I have found a sure-fire way to connect to the greatness of God.
My grandson has cars on his mind.

Today's ReVision

If feeling good is what you're after, you'd better take another look at your faith.
