Hold My Wait…

We’re only one week into a new year and already anxiousness and fretting have penetrated most days. Oh, I’m good at disguising them in prayers. Asking the only One who can accomplish my God sized longings. Truth is though, the many words and the…

The List…

I make lists. And I love crossing them off. Each little ‘to do’ that’s done somehow is satisfying. But recently in another great book by Max Lucado, Unshakable Hope, I read this at the end: “In the first chapter I told you that the…

Running Away…

There’s an unrest in my soul these days. Haven’t pinpointed it yet – but experience tells me it’s preparation. A feeling – things don’t stay the same, no matter how much I hate change. I know because more than once a day I want…

Hope Grows…

Ever go to bed one night thinking: ‘I can do this’, and wake up the next morning doubting…everything? Those mornings when what you least expected was a melt down – but there you are right in the middle of it? And all I could…

5 Tuesdays to…Hope

Why hope? Hope is so hard to define, yet it’s what we cling to. So maybe it’s time to not only say it but believe, know it, count on it. Today is my birthday – I hope I don’t look my age, I hope…

Save, Don’t Save…

When I write something and then close it out, a dialog box pops up ‘Save or Don’t Save’. Two little boxes, one big question. Kind of like when we clean out the garage or attic – save, don’t save? Stuff that at one time…

8:45am

Funny how we mark things with time – the year of the hurricanes, September 11, 2001, the call this morning from a tearful child “I’m on my way to the emergency room”. The slow motion moments. Moving at the speed of light to get…

Don’t Look Away…

Scary is different for us all. But we pretty much react the same way. As children: pulling covers up over our heads. As adults: turning away or closing our eyes.  One evening a ragamuffin bunch set sail and encountered winds that kept them from…

No Walls, Know Love…

Ever been imprisoned? Me either. Can’t even imagine. This girl has to walk outside and look up at blue skies, breathe in fresh air. Author Dee Brestin tells of ministering to ladies in prison. Sharing the Lord one on one and in groups, opening…

Heart Voice….

I did it again – and I bet you will say ‘Me too!’ I tend to run ahead of myself and worry about the unknown and how the ‘next thing’ is going to turn out. I lose sleep, I get short tempered, I tend…

Not My Perfect…

Maybe we all need to just get it out. Just shout it. I MESSED UP! I didn’t parent my kids perfect, I lost my temper, I waited too long, I forgot…fill in your ‘I messed up’ here _________. We live in a world with little patience for…

Fear-less New Year…

Fear is a companion, but not a welcome one. Fear, worry, doubt, dread – words that don’t cheer us but at times are apt descriptions of where we’re living. Ever noticed fear is often accompanied by comparison? Her kids don’t have the issues my kids…
