Breaking & Prayer…

How broken our world is. Tragedy is reality for so many. And for those who watch from afar, do our hearts break?  In our own backyard do we not see how life is no longer precious – if it’s inconvenient. The unplanned pregnancy, the…

RESToration…

Projects – a lot of work. Restoring something – an old chair or an old house requires…yikes, patience. I’m wondering if Jesus has ever said ‘yikes’ as He takes us on to restore us to Him? For some the restoration of our spirit by…

The Fixer…

Can’t fix the things that seem most broken? Me either. We pray, try to forget or bury, do things, say things, buy things, and worry. And yet the very things we fret over are oh so useful in the hands of The Fixer. No…

This Day…

Sometimes loved ones are just too far away. Maybe no longer here on earth. Maybe living more than a short car ride away. Maybe separated by walls put up with harsh words. Every now and then I catch the scent of my mom (a…

Fine Print…

If you loved me, you would… You don’t love me because… Real love doesn’t… We put fine print on love. Only thing is, we’re not the only ones with fine print. A world full of broken hearts begs ‘just love me’. And because that…

The Sunday message has often ended with ‘Go be the church’. I knew what he meant, I knew the intention. I thought I did. But knowing and action are different. Knowing can be acknowledging and even agreeing. Action is both of those and then…

You’re Surrounded…

Sometimes just need to be held? I know, me too. My seven month old grandson too. He’ll play, then turn and see me, and crawl right up lifting little arms. Bet God wishes that’s what we would do – when we wonder what to…

Free to Serve…

America’s independence – hard fought and won by men and women whose hearts saw beyond serving an earthly king – who saw the freedom that comes with serving the King of kings. Its seems like a paradox to say we are freest when we…

Bigger…

Seems like bigger is better – paycheck, house, popularity. Children always want to be bigger. We pick the bigger apple or head of lettuce. It goes back to Paul’s lesson: contentment. Ugh, that just doesn’t fit today’s world does it? The lesson is good,…

Fix It…

I’m a fixer – I don’t want anyone hurting, sad, left out, wandering. And patience isn’t part of fixing – now please. Many years – and life’s triumphs and defeats – have softened the edges of my ‘just do it this way’ attitude — mostly. Then I…
