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…

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…

Have Fun…

Remember your mom calling after you as you went out to play: ‘Have fun…’ ? It’s a bit hard to recall just how that works. How does one have fun when the bills pile high, the workload grows, sad things creep in? I have…

A Little Help Here…

Do-it-yourselfer? Got it handled? Not so much… Accepting help isn’t always easy for me. Somehow it makes me feel ‘less than’. That I’m not smart enough, strong enough, good enough. And so it is with too many of us when it comes to seeking…

Can You Believe It?

Oh to be childlike – laying on the grass watching clouds float away, to see a lizard and not understand why you can’t catch it, to read just one more story – and not think about time. Seems like one day melts into another…

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…

Gradually Graduating…

Graduations make me sad – they usually mark separation. A child finally spreading wings, and off they go. As a Jesus follower we all have an ultimate graduation day – only no longer a separation, but a reunion. A homecoming to beat all and…

Hope Living…

     “Blessed is the one who perseveres and does the hard things. Tough times never last but those who hang tight to God always do.” Ann Voskamp Our hearts know we have a living Hope, God’s word assures us this is so. So we…

His Girl…

     You know those moments where your heart swells? Those times when your doggy looks at you with soulful eyes. Those times a toddler’s sweet voice undoes you. The times a strong hand with a wedding band covers yours in assurance. What treasure there…

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……

Be The Same…

     Funny, we never see children trying to be different, unique, set apart. No, they watch what somewhat else does and then they imitate it. I think this is what the Father who dearly loves us had in mind when He said “Be imitators…

Whatever…

     Over the last several years many things have happened that I’ve had no control over – so when the little annoyances of life would crop up I found myself saying ‘Whatever’ – sometimes with an exclamation point, sometimes this with a sigh… While it was…
