Celebrating The Week That Was and Will Be

Before we get to our look back at the week that was , I want to share a little about what is ahead here, during this extended holiday weekend. With the Monday holiday in the U.S., commonly referred to as the 4th of July, it is our Independence Day celebration.  Record numbers of travelers areContinue reading “Celebrating The Week That Was and Will Be”

Renewal Declared

A new month is arriving and here at Becoming Today I am, like our forefathers did, declaring life affirming principles. I declare July will be a month of Renewal. Yes I said declaring it, and boldly so, because it is something that not only am I feeling strongly led to for myself, but as IContinue reading “Renewal Declared”

Seeking Commitment? Or Covenant?

Often I ask for your input In doing so I told you that coming soon,we would be undertaking a discussion about commitments. But wait,… there’s more. What I didn’t tell you was I was having a bit of a quandary myself about commitments, covenants, the differences between the two, and whether or not my standardsContinue reading “Seeking Commitment? Or Covenant?”

Meta Morph Us

Are you ready? We’ve reached another point of change along our shared journey here at Becoming Today. Not only around us, but also a time when I believe we’ll all notice some of these decidedly different differences taking effect within us.  As the calendar will soon mark the start of a new month, we canContinue reading “Meta Morph Us”

Summertime Communiques

Another week has come and gone and this time the seasons have changed both literally and metaphorically. As we make our way forward into Summertime, let’s look back at the week that was here on “Becoming Today”. Monday we found ourselves  “In The Midst Of It All”.  Where no matter what it is you mayContinue reading “Summertime Communiques”

Milestone Moment

One year ago… well more precisely it was exactly a year ago, this past Wednesday, that I shared for the first time an intensely personal tale from my life. I had never spoken publicly about it before then. So while Fridays are usually my time to discuss random thoughts and current events for the nextContinue reading “Milestone Moment”

In The Good Ole Summertime

It is maybe our most widely welcomed season and now here in the Northern Hemisphere it’s official!

No matter what it is you may currently be going through, you can do so in a state of peace. This edition of “Becoming Today”, will focus on finding peace in the midst of whatever you may be enduring. Peace can have many meanings. From the dictionary among the offering of definitions are: -a stateContinue reading “In The Midst Of It All”

Five For Friday

Another week is slipping into the future and on Fridays we take a step aside from our normal format and bring you some random thoughts, observations and maybe even a  recollection or two. So guess what? We’ve got five of those for you on this Friday edition of “Becoming Today”.  Much of the rhetoric precedingContinue reading “Five For Friday”

Wise Living

Welcome back as we are continuing, now on week 13 of our  extended odyssey, having undertaken a search and rescue mission for wisdom. When the Bible keeps talking about the same thing over and over, that’s  because it is important.   That’s why Solomon continues  on the themes  of loving wisdom and treasuring her.   AlongContinue reading “Wise Living”

A Banner Day

 In the United States this is an often overlooked holiday. Today is Flag Day.  A mere 245 years ago, our forefathers worked together to officially recognize “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life,Continue reading “A Banner Day”

Favor – Able

Yes  I realize the grammar police will be quick to point out, it’s one word, no hyphen or other symbol is necessary but I’m trying to make a point. That is why on this edition of “Becoming Today” we will discuss how Favor and Able, come together to become so much more… Yes is’s anotherContinue reading “Favor – Able”

Viikko Tarkastelussa

Well I hope I got that right. I’m trusting Google Translate to help me. I’m running out  of creative ways to say “Week In Review” and apparently if I were in Finland that’s how it would be said. Just don’t ask me how to pronounce it. Instead we’ll take a look back at the weekContinue reading “Viikko Tarkastelussa”

Friday Free For All 

Another week already? And despite the holiday, this week somehow feels longer since we also wrapped up another month of this year of “+2”. Anyway Friday is here and that’s when I wander a bit off the path to share some random thoughts and observations on this edition of “Becoming Today”.  Here’s something I hadContinue reading “Friday Free For All “

Decoration Day

Exactly 154 years ago today a nation was healing from violence. Trying to move beyond mass shootings, domestic violence and terroristic threats they began to come together  by commemorating Decoration Day. Since then the name has changed. The scope increased but still a need addressed in its original intention should be recognized. That’s our focusContinue reading “Decoration Day”

What A Week It Was

I hope we are finishing it like we started singing praises, though this week did take some unexpected dark turns. Yet together along our shared path we can always find the light that defeats darkness. We’ll take a look back at the week that was on this edition of “Becoming Today”. I hope you areContinue reading “What A Week It Was”
