Jesus’ Cross


Even in the darkest night,

When I just turn and toss,

When all seems hopeless, nothing’s right,

I remember Jesus’ cross.

That beam of lumber cut to size,

Too heavy to be borne

By One who stepped to Calvary’s call

Beaten, mocked, and scorned.

In the shadow of that cross,

How can I complain?

I have not sweat great drops of blood,

I’ve not endured such pain.

I’ve had no nails pierce tender flesh,

And no one’s spit on me.

No soldier’s opened up my back,

Nor stabbed my side with glee.

No jeering crowd shouts, “Crucify!”

Such loneliness I can’t feel.

Yet love for me was the reason why

He bled, and I was healed.

And by His stripes we are healed. – Isaiah 53:5 (NKJV)

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,

that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

–John 3:16 (NKJV)

Where It All Began


God is real! He has promised never to leave us or forsake us. He speaks to us of His love, His power, and His presence through our everyday experiences, if only we will stop to listen.

Minute Meditations: Meeting God in Everyday Experiences is NOW AVAILABLE IN KINDLE VERSION.

Where it all began . . . with a devotional column I practically had to beg the newspaper publisher to let me write . . . to three devotional books and 19 years of a writing a column that won second place in the 2009 Pennsylvania Newspaper Association’s Keystone Press Awards. In 2000, I published 50 of my favorite columns, along with 8 poems in book form (paperback). To mark the milestone of going into the column’s 20th year, the first book of meditations is now available for your Kindle for only $.99.

God’s abiding presence in our lives is the theme of this collection of 58 devotional thoughts and poems. Previously published in my weekly newspaper column in the early days (1997-1999), each devotional reading contains a key Scripture verse, a short devotional, and a suggested Bible reading to read and meditate on. Whether you use these readings as part of your quiet time at the start of your day, when you need a quick pick-me-up throughout the day, or during a time of reflection at the end of your day, they will, in the words of a reader, “serve as an important reminder that God is always holding me tight.”
