Hold My Hand…

Sometimes we just need to squeeze a hand that loves us. During labor I watched as my daughter fiercely squeezed her husband’s hand. When I got close to her face once she grasped my hand with all her might as well. And when her…

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…

Lost & Found…

Who hasn’t searched for missing car keys, misplaced glasses, an earring? But sometimes we’re searching for deeper things. Sometimes we’re not even looking and something lost finds us. Just this week I found out I have a niece I never knew about – how…

Whispers Are Louder…

      When my daughter was little and had something really important to tell me she would climb up beside me, move my hair, and whisper her news. Whisper moments were precious and I listened carefully. I’ve noticed in a crowd it’s not the noisy conversations…

Hope Story…

     Hope story – God is ever present… Once there was a girl and her mom – just the two of them. Tomy was mom’s name, and her always smiling daughter was Jody. Tomy always looked for love in men who loved her for…

Old Is New…

     The boots didn’t fit well and it was her special present from me this Christmas. I told her this was a bonus as we could pick a day to return them and find ones that she liked even better and that fit just…

Overflowing…

     Today the skies are bluest blue and a cool gentle breeze has finally ushered in autumn. Gently the morning has unfolded the beauty that is all around… My daughter sent a text saying “Happy Fall, Momma! Can you send me the recipe for…

Bounty-Full…

     Sometimes there are words we use but seldom consider the real meaning. Bounty is one of them – originally meant to infer generosity or abundance. The root in Latin: good. This month I want each day to find me focusing on the giving of thanks,…

Touching…Marvelous…

     Watching babies once they find their hands is too fun – everything to the mouth. They don’t just want to hold the toy, the dog’s ear, their mom’s hair – they want to taste it, make it their own. I’ll never forget my ten month…

And the Hands That Made It…

     Recently I was challenged to set a timer for five minutes and do…nothing. To sit back and breathe and listen – to let the tension roll away and be filled for good use… I wondered during that time about things…I glanced at the beautiful…

My Sunshine…

     Did your mother ever sing to you ‘You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are grey…”? Mine did… I miss her… She also came in some mornings singing ‘Wake up, wake up you sleepy head. The sun…

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…
