Homesick…

My parents divorced when I was young. I came to Florida each year to see my dad – my only time with him. Torn between two homes. I used to love airports, the smell of jet fuel and the hustle bustle. Then I had…

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….

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…

The Table…

We’re invited. We’ll be satisfied. We’ll have the perfect seat. We won’t ever want to leave. Banquets or parties can be awkward – what to wear, where to sit, who to talk to and about what. The there’s this: I have a hard time…

Comin’ Home…

Mom… she always said ‘Come home anytime’. When I would get a date on the calendar I always called and said ‘I’m comin’ home’. Home was not the house I grew up in, as we moved many times during my childhood. And home wasn’t a place where she…

Not My Perfect…

Maybe we all need to just get it out. Just shout it. I MESSED UP! I didn’t parent my kids perfect, I lost my temper, I waited too long, I forgot…fill in your ‘I messed up’ here _________. We live in a world with little patience for…

Sharing Living…

     Sharing – that’s what this life is all about. From early on we’re told ‘Share your toy, your candy, what you have’. Then somewhere along the way the message changes ‘Be frugal, don’t waste your resources, be careful who you share with’. What…

Resurrection…

     Our good friend and pastor in California recalled the following story when his oldest daughter was six… His wife couldn’t pick her up from school and had asked Larry to get her. Realizing he was running late he got over to the school…

Happy 4th of July!

   Today is my favorite holiday – I’ve often been asked why… Could be that I love summertime and it’s the true summer holiday. Could be that it usually means barbeques and our children. Could be I love fireworks… I was blessed with great…

HAPPY TODDLER PLAYTIME
