Open Hands

My hands are starting to reveal my age. I can still picture my mother’s hands and I adore my daughter’s hands, beautiful. Their hands and mine have changed countless diapers, cooked countless meals, and wiped up countless spills. They are hands that have cuddled… Continue Reading “Open Hands”

Alive

It is curious that we have managed to confuse what is and isn’t life. Whether something is alive or just a bunch of cells. Seems like many have more regard for a single celled amoeba than they do for a miraculously growing baby. These… Continue Reading “Alive”

Silence…

My husband complains he hears traffic at night even though the highway is a mile or so away. I don’t hear anything at night unless he snores. Our world is noisy. Even in the quietest night, the buzz from electrical appliances and hums from… Continue Reading “Silence…”

Messy

So here’s what makes me crazy – messes. I don’t have a spotless house, especially these days. Four days a week it’s invaded by pattering little feet leaving sticky spots, handprints, and sand everywhere. Seriously, I can’t keep up with the spots on the… Continue Reading “Messy”

Why

I miss wonder. I’m sure I was once in awe at a dragonfly, a popsicle, a walk in the garden. Kids ask a lot of questions. Why is your hair crazy gwammy? How are your tacos cooking gwammy? Did Jesus make the legos too?… Continue Reading “Why”

A Sign

We used to own a sign store. We made little vinyl signs and we made signs the size of a small house. Some were for businesses to announce their location, some were banners announcing a special occasion. It may be a bit early, but… Continue Reading “A Sign”

Turbulence…

I haven’t been on an airplane in a while – but the last time there was a bit of turbulence. It’s pretty much a helpless feeling. Either worry or keep reading your book. Kind of like these days. Only the turbulence seems to happen… Continue Reading “Turbulence…”

Last Chance…

If today was you’re last one, would you do anything different? Would you surrender your heart to Jesus? Would you surrender your way to His? What would you do or not do? We’ve heard this before. Boils down to living like the next minute… Continue Reading “Last Chance…”

Human…

What is it about us humans – or at least this human. Usually about the time I’m feeling I’ve gotten my life together in a way that honors Jesus, is about the time He shows me how far I have to go. Sometimes it’s… Continue Reading “Human…”

Forever…

Some moments we just wish wouldn’t end. Moments like when a three year old puts his arm around your neck and says: “Grammy I stay with you forever!” In the midst of laughter and fun come heart-felt words spoken by the innocence of childhood.… Continue Reading “Forever…”
