To the Brim…

Say there were no consequences for overeating your favorite thing – what would it be? This time of year it would be pecan pie for me, but ask me another day and I would choose fries and a Coke. We fill up on all…

Falling Together…

Ever have one of those almost asleep moments when suddenly you feel like your falling – then jerk – and you realize your safely in bed? Falling is one of those fear-full things. Hollywood still uses falling out of buildings, off cliffs, over the side…

Free to Serve…

America’s independence – hard fought and won by men and women whose hearts saw beyond serving an earthly king – who saw the freedom that comes with serving the King of kings. Its seems like a paradox to say we are freest when we…

Things I Thought…

Ever say “I can’t get by without ____ or I can’t live without _____”? Things I thought I couldn’t live without: a paycheck – until my husband’s business failed – we had three children at home – I didn’t work. We’re all here. Air conditioning – until being at…

I’m Sure…

I recall times as a child when mom would say “Are you sure about this?” Usually that meant she wasn’t so sure. Her daughter was wanting to do something she wasn’t certain was ok. Uncertainty is always just around the corner in our crazy…

No Unbelief…

In Gatlinburg, TN there are burned down dreams and memories in ash piles. A family grieves the loss of a son, not knowing whose anger caused the shots. Another grieves the loss of a father trying to do his job to serve and protect….

Promise 33

In a few days I will have been married to a man who said ‘I do’ and has meant it for 33 years. These days it’s hard to find someone committed for 33 minutes let alone years. But this man has stuck by my side through…
