Forever…

Some moments we just wish wouldn’t end. Moments like when a three year old puts his arm around your neck and says: “Grammy I stay with you forever!” In the midst of laughter and fun come heart-felt words spoken by the innocence of childhood….

Just Ask…

When I was young I was teased a lot about being quiet. I came to truly dislike the ‘cat got your tongue’ phrase. I was a listener. I prefer the intimacy of relationships. There would be friends and family alike who would be surprised…

Walls…

Chalk made train tracks, tricycle raceways, and roads for tiny trucks – my creative abilities have increased. While building tunnels for little boys is an adventure – I’ve recently put up some protective walls that need to be torn down. This Christian walk is…

Which Way…

Stepping out of one year into the next – a last day becomes a first, as seconds tick one into the other. Odd how we think up ‘resolutions’ or aspire to better this or that just because of a date on the calendar. We’re…

Heart Beat…

Christmas Eve…Where are our hearts? Too often scotch tape and shiny paper wrap our souls. Time to break free and be wrapped – with wonder, with the Gift itself. Instead of wrapping up boxes and details, how about we just give rapt attention to…

He Comes…

Christmas can’t be contained in a date 2,000 years ago. There was that one special Bethlehem day – but daily now is the coming. Then there’s the day you found Christ – right there with you all along. And there’s today when the next…

HAPPY TODDLER PLAYTIME
