This is Tender…

Fragile – not a word I like to use – about me. After all I am a strong woman, right? Truth is: far more fragile than I want to admit, than my ‘pull up your bootstraps’ attitude can handle, but not more than my God…

Sometimes Too Much…

Lately everything seems like ‘Too Much’. So much we want to do. So much we have to do. Then comes a wrinkle. You know the wrinkles – unexpected guests, unexpected illness, unexpected travel, unexpected stuff. Then the much of life we want to do…

Not Fading…

What’s your most valuable possession? Jewelry, cars, home? Antiques, artwork, memorabilia? Two thousand years ago perfume was a highly valued item. Extremely expensive, not owned by many. The ingredients to make it were scarce and pricey. “While Jesus was in Bethany in the home…

Heart Voice….

I did it again – and I bet you will say ‘Me too!’ I tend to run ahead of myself and worry about the unknown and how the ‘next thing’ is going to turn out. I lose sleep, I get short tempered, I tend…

I recall times as a child when mom would say “Are you sure about this?” Usually that meant she wasn’t so sure. Her daughter was wanting to do something she wasn’t certain was ok. Uncertainty is always just around the corner in our crazy…

Wipers…

I hear this commercial every now and then talking about how cars didn’t always have wiper blades. A small accessory on today’s cars, but without them we wouldn’t get far in a heavy rain on the highway. When the children were young, a fun treat…

Pull Your Knife…

 If you ever find yourself in the presence of a mountain lion pull your knife, lock eyes, and stand your ground. Pastor Larry Adams recounted the story of someone who researched these animals and was caught off guard on one of his ‘field trips’….

Lead Rubies…

Rubies, a precious jewel, second only to diamonds in hardness and much rarer. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not an expensive jewelry fan – but when looking in jewelry store windows, I have always been drawn to these red beauties. And then I found out it…
