Driving Blind in the Snow

Not long ago I experienced driving blind in the midst of a storm during a day trip with my mom to a city two hours away. The highway we normally drive on wound in and out of mountains, through flat sections, and, the scariest of all, over Cabbage Hill where the weather can blind you to the sides of the road. The Cabbage Hill road climbs at a six-percent-grade road that twists and turns with towering hills on one side and sheer drop-offs on the other. This perilous stretch of road near Deadman Pass challenges the best of drivers. These winding roads took the lives of nine travelers this January.

As my mom and I drove over Cabbage Hill that spring morning, everything went smoothly, for there was no snow or ice to threaten the roads. We arrived at the city, spent an enjoyable evening there, and headed home just as the sun set.  . . . and the snow fell.

Our relationship with Jesus, Conscious, Subconscious (aka Unconscious), or Both?

If we think our relationship with Jesus is only a conscious act we are either doing it wrong or just don’t really understand the true depth of this relationship.

Responding to fear

Fear and CourageDuring my early years, I did my responding to fear and courage without courage. I wanted to live void of fear and full of courage. After all, fear causes many unpleasant sensations like feeling hot yet with cold skin, shortness of breath, a knot in the stomach, and the strong wish to just run away and somehow hide.
