Perfect Timing…

Does waiting drive you crazy? Children are counting down days til Christmas. Adults count days til the next big game, movie sequel, retirement – or you fill in the blank with your ‘can’t wait’ list. At the birth of Jesus the world had been…

On Marriage…

Only daughter walked the aisle this past Saturday – my ‘do it myself, my way’ girl. Ever been to a wedding? Some are sedate and full of ritual, some are party start to finish. But all are a celebration of two people saying they…

Returns…

Christmas is behind, boxes of decorations will soon be put away, and store music is already back to usual. Is life? We mark time because we are currently captive to it. The difference between December 31st and January 1st is really a calendar year….

Surprise…

When was the last time you were surprised? Excited? I’m pretty hard to surprise. Drives my hubby crazy. Top it off with being very practical, so I don’t get too excited about things either. But there have been those occasions – when I was…

Already Blessed…

Read any Dr. Seuss lately? Interesting truth in some of those writings. There’s a Dr. Seuss called Oh, The Places You Will Go. A section mid-way through is about the ‘waiting time’ – “waiting for…the phone to ring…or for a Yes or No…just waiting.” The…

I’m Sure…

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…

What Has He Done?

Only five days until most of the world pauses for a day to remember, to rejoice, to celebrate. The detail and intricacy spanning a few thousand years, written in the book we call the Bible, is amazing. Lives lived in ages past that mirror ours today. Promises of…

Wild & Precious…

     We all want to be the just blossomed rose. Petals fresh, soft, full of promise, fragrance beckoning all to notice. But life has a way of shaking our just blossomed awe and we find ourselves instead hesitant, doubting the promise, and wanting anything…

The Glory…

     The glory – of the One and Only – the One from the Father, it shone all around them – those shepherds long ago, the earth is full of it – the Light of the world… And now it is to us to…

Unwrap It…

     Yearly I send a box filled with little gifts, some in sparkly bags, some in crinkly paper. Yearly she sends me the same, a box of love. At our age it is too funny to have the most gifts under the tree, a…

What is…

     December is under way, the hustle and bustle is in full swing. Cookies are being baked, gift lists reviewed, fun events on the calendar. This year I am letting go of ‘just so’ and ‘perfect’ – and I’m finding happy with what is……

Take My Breath Away…

     How can we find the hush even in the rush… Find quiet for our souls… Let our breath be taken away??? In the excited face of the impoverished child opening a gift – let us give that his face can shine… In the flurry of snow caught…
