Don’t Be Afraid

It’s been a hard week – not for me – for the whole world. The plight of the people of Afghanistan is overwhelming and evil appears to be in charge. And, sadly, a country I love, America, has blood on it’s hands for the… Continue Reading “Don’t Be Afraid”

Can’t Wait…

So, have I mentioned lately I don’t like change, the unexpected, surprises? I think I’m a slow learner. (Best not to mention things we don’t like.) All three of those things happened at once last week. I’m not alone, grandsons don’t like change either.… Continue Reading “Can’t Wait…”

Reset

Time for a reset – so much we can’t control. Evil does prevail at times. Was God looking the other way, asleep? Hardly. We tend to lose focus. We think all outcomes, that aren’t what we had hoped for, are personal. Like we’re the… Continue Reading “Reset”

Declare

It’s November. When the ‘shelter in place’ thing first happened, I thought it would be a very long year. Instead it has passed like most of life – like a vapor. Along with all the Covid stuff has been much more than we could… Continue Reading “Declare”

What Next?

I woke up early (too early) recently and found my mind drifting to insignificant things and becoming irritated easily. Getting up, I sat in the dark – and though it took a while, I figured it out. Anxiety. Whether it’s corona virus or our… Continue Reading “What Next?”

Do Everything…

You can learn a lot from a two year old – about being brave, about trying. I’m not one who likes to try new things. I like the routine of life. Sure, a vacation here and there. But don’t talk to me about eating… Continue Reading “Do Everything…”

After All…

“In all the setbacks we experience in life, God is plotting for our joy – but it’s probably not going to look like you think.” (Pastor Jay Holland) My mind has been turning over the saying ‘after all is said and done’. Six words… Continue Reading “After All…”

Great Expectations…

Sometimes great things aren’t pretty but they’re still what’s best. I have a friend who signs her emails and notes with her name and then: ‘Expecting Great Things’. Not because she wishes them, not because she deserves them, not because she has it all.… Continue Reading “Great Expectations…”

Perfect Timing…

Does waiting drive you crazy? Children are counting down days til Christmas. Adults count days til the next big game, movie sequel, retirement – or you fill in the blank with your ‘can’t wait’ list. At the birth of Jesus the world had been… Continue Reading “Perfect Timing…”

Just Sing…

There’s a new song out – a little album done mostly for kids – you know, like you and me. Kids still on the inside – that we see a glimmer of now and then. (More about the song at the end.) Every new… Continue Reading “Just Sing…”
