Fussy…

Somewhere between sleep and wanting to see the world around him – this two month old can’t quite close those big eyes. So he fusses. A lot like you and I. We’re offered rest in Jesus. We can read that He grants sleep to…

The List…

I make lists. And I love crossing them off. Each little ‘to do’ that’s done somehow is satisfying. But recently in another great book by Max Lucado, Unshakable Hope, I read this at the end: “In the first chapter I told you that the…

Running Away…

There’s an unrest in my soul these days. Haven’t pinpointed it yet – but experience tells me it’s preparation. A feeling – things don’t stay the same, no matter how much I hate change. I know because more than once a day I want…

Hope Challenge…

Lots of things are contagious – mostly stuff we don’t want to catch. Like the flu or the common cold. My husband used to have a poster in his office that said ‘Attitudes are Contagious – Is Yours Worth Catching?’ I think the same…

Hope Happens…

Any given day the headlines are scary reading – suicide, shooting, missing. And hope seems lost. And yet…the widow clings, the terrified students grasp, the mother and father print posters. It’s a soul thing – we know hope is real. We know, but how?…

Even More…

Just came back from a ‘best friends’ trip. The Biltmore Estate was one destination. Do you know it has 250 rooms? Forget the square footage, it has 4 acres of floor space – 35 bathrooms. As we wandered the spectacular grounds, and climbed up…

This is America…

Proud to be an American? If this is a bad thing, why does the whole world still clamor to visit or move here? America isn’t just prosperity – although we have enjoyed that. America isn’t just freedom of religion – though we have enjoyed…

Missing Part…

Several years ago I decided to go super natural in food and beauty products. But… I’m a bread lover – pretty much all the mass produced stuff is unhealthy – I had to find a way. I began with milling my own wheat. I…

8:45am

Funny how we mark things with time – the year of the hurricanes, September 11, 2001, the call this morning from a tearful child “I’m on my way to the emergency room”. The slow motion moments. Moving at the speed of light to get…

Sweetest Embrace…

Nothing quiet like being held. Babies who are cuddled thrive – those fed and diapered but not held have been known to die.  Recently I witnessed a precious groom sweetly cradle his new bride’s face in his hand as he kissed her. Just look…

A Little Less Glitter…

What a noisy world. Constantly bombarding us with the latest scandal – and then there’s news of volcanoes erupting, submarines lost, hurt after hurt. Weary ears yearn for quiet, for all this to just stop, even for a moment. But it doesn’t. So can…

Just A Little Bit…

Are things going just the way you planned? I’m guessing each of us smirked or exhaled ‘no way’. Now I know not everybody lives by a plan, an agenda, a ‘this is the way it should be’ idea. But I’m thinking most of us…
