Living the adventure

“I am reminded of your sincere faith,
a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois
and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well.”
2 Timothy 1:5 ESV

   Something extraordinary happened in the midst of the hopelessness found in the WWII concentration camps. The women shared recipes with each other, some even writing cookbooks. You may be wondering why in the world they did such a thing as the misery and death surrounded them. The truth is—the ‘food talk’ as they called it boosted their sense of community. They taught each other the art of cooking and baking even though they did not possess the ingredients to prepare the recipes. Through this they kept the hope of their culture alive.

How do you gain peace and sustain it? Maybe if I lived on the beach and every morning I could watch the sunrise glisten on the waters, I would have peace. Or perhaps if I had no struggles or temptations, my heart would abide in peace. But the battle between good versus evil rages on, and no life on earth is free from struggles and temptations. Even the beach has its storms and hurricanes.

“Humility.” The word was seared on my brain.

Two weeks ago at the Florida Christian Writers Conference, the attendees were dazzled by beautiful Lake Yale. Every morning the lake greeted us with its serenity and offered the perfect retreat for writers. Anne of Green Gables would have called it “the lake of shining waters.”

The sun shining on the lake, however, was blinding. One morning I was hypnotized by the glistening ripples, and I studied them too long. The image of the sun on the water was seared across my vision, and I said a fervent prayer that I wouldn’t lose my sight.
