Fear Knot?

I’m realizing days in this world often speak these words: ‘Lord, why?’ Whether it’s the saddest of stories half a world away, or right at home in what seems the worst. Ken Ham (Answers In Genesis founder) says “I now see God was using…

Last Time…

Sometimes we never know – when the last time of something will be. This crazy world has us saying ‘It’s Friday already’ or ‘It’s Monday again’. Time whirls by and we go through each day as though we always will. We set aside certain…

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…

High Pressure Hope…

If we have one cool thing in our house, it’s our shower. What we hadn’t noticed was the water pressure slowly getting lower. Until a sort of whining sound started. How had we not noticed how slow the water had become? It was gradual.That’s…

Free Fall…

Ever actually seen a field of wheat? Me either – but I love the pictures showing stalks gently blowing in the breeze, like a sea of gold. These days machines do much of the work taking the grain from the stalk and leaves –…

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…

A corner of the closet is home to a box where special cards, crayon pictures, and glued together popsicle sticks are safely tucked away. Treasures that someday will be found and the finder will wonder ‘what on earth’ – precious to the maker at the time and forever to…

Learning Living…

     Sometimes you just have to be quiet to hear. That’s hard for me. You? I’m busy even when I’m not busy. If I’m sitting, I’m kicking my leg or tapping my feet. Sit still? Be quiet? It’s sounds great, but that old saying…

Surrounded…

     A nine hour drive to the hospital. Anxious thoughts surrounded the miles. The sky was already dark pulling into the parking lot even though it was only 5:30. Bitter cold surrounded me as I stepped out. How does one say goodbye while still…

Sweeping…

     For me January is that time I want to clean everything, get rid of ‘stuff’, have a place for everything…sweeping away the cobwebs and dust of what was to prepare for what will be. Sweeping the driveway is this kind of useless effort that…
