He Came to Show Us

I know – I’ve been absent. For the first time in ten years. I’ve been a bit lost. How about you? It’s that time when all is glitter and lights and good cheer. Only sometimes…it’s not. I see it all around our broken world.… Continue Reading “He Came to Show Us”

Counted

Time to work my way out of all that has silenced me the past few weeks. Only one way I know of: list the blessings. When I am lost in all that is wrong, first I hear my mother’s voice: ‘Count your blessings, not… Continue Reading “Counted”

Getting There

The last few days of our back roads trip started with a final descent leaving foothills in the rearview mirror. But not without one last hold-on-to-the-wheel-here-we-go moment. I thought the twists and turns were behind us, it was okay a few more were left,… Continue Reading “Getting There”

Whatever

Sometimes we realize we just completed a journey – yet we didn’t leave our normal day to day. Not all journeys require a plane or car, just a surrendered heart. It’s that moment when we realize God just did a work in us that… Continue Reading “Whatever”

Together

After a week away from me, my four year old grandson hugged my legs tightly, a week was too long. My closest friend lives across the country, our times together are few, we beg for time to slow down when we get together. Looking… Continue Reading “Together”

That Voice

Ever notice how children know their mom’s voice – even at a noisy playground. Little heads spin when mom calls. Our voices are unique. Sure we can train them to sound a certain way, but the one we grew up with is uniquely ours.… Continue Reading “That Voice”

Still Doing Stupid

Right now, in the midst of trying to capture the wonder, it’s more like caught in the weary. Ever been in that place where things were going along just fine – then suddenly without warning everything is a tangled mess. How easily we wound… Continue Reading “Still Doing Stupid”
