    Spiritual truth is found in everyday circumstances; God orchestrates joy and pain as instruments to draw us to intimacy with Him and others.

    Join me, a baby-boomer as I look back through laughter and tears, around with an open heart, and ahead to eternity with my Savior.

    book excerpt


    Do you remember the last time you sat down and played a few games of checkers? Am I bringing back fond memories? I recall some of my own. Hearing the word checkers takes me back to quiet times sitting across the checker board from Grandpa Ford. Today I regret that I did not do that more often.

    Checkers is a mathematical game and involves strategy, anticipating your opponents’ future moves. It also requires patience and time; a quick game of checkers happens only when you get skunked.

    My husband also has stories about big games he played with his Grand Daddy LeMasters. He knew the game and rarely lost, meaning my husband seldom won. Now, he carries on the checkers family tradition by playing with our grandsons every chance he gets. They are now in their teens, but the games started at a very early age.

    The two oldest boys lived in England for eleven years, and when we visited, they got out the checkers. He experienced an eye opener at how skilled they were. They revealed that they played it on the computer; technology surfaces everywhere. They played several games, each doing quite well.

    A couple of years ago we visited them again, taking along another grandson on our trip. They are now stationed at an air base in Vegas. Everyone spent time playing interactive computer games, but a checkerboard soon found a spot on the kitchen table. Can you guess what happened? My husband got skunked. All three boys put him to shame. “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall (Proverbs 16:18 NKJ).”

    I guess the torch is now in the hand of the next generation. If you are brave enough, dig out the old checkerboard. Beware; your opponent may be one jump ahead of you.
