Longing

We’re at that point: the place somewhere between the excitement of the approaching celebration and the fulfillment of all the plans and preparations. The longing time. Longing, in some ways, to move on because it seems life is too hectic. But really longing for… Continue Reading “Longing”

Above All

This year Christmas feels like a welcome breath of air, a sweet sound of peace, a deep sense of comfort. Perhaps things not being the same (normal) for months now is bringing about a desire for what is real and lasting. Although we long… Continue Reading “Above All”

Thankful?

We say it, but do we mean it? It’s easy to let it roll off the tongue: ‘thanks’, ‘thanks much’, ‘thanks a lot’. And not just to each other. In prayer: ‘thanks, God, for ____ (fill in the blank)’, ‘thanks, Jesus, for what you’ve… Continue Reading “Thankful?”

Always Known…

When my mom passed away I thought: she was the only one who knew me before I was even born. But that’s not true. So many verses throughout the Bible speak of God knowing us from even before time. Don’t we all just want… Continue Reading “Always Known…”

Love Better, Best

I’m learning what God has always shown, has always been. Love is not finite. It doesn’t have a limited capacity.  There’s a certain freedom the world just doesn’t get. Freedom that comes when we learn love is not a thing or an emotion –… Continue Reading “Love Better, Best”

In Between…

1938-2011, July 23-27, choose a span of time. Notice the commonality: the hyphen. From point a to point b. A dash, in time. We live here in between. Between our first breath on earth and our last. Time here never seems long enough. Mortality… Continue Reading “In Between…”

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…”

The Exchange…

A twenty-something guy ran out to meet a man at his car. The older man handed him four suit coats – as they walked he said “If they don’t fit, I’ll help you get them altered.” I’m guessing the young man had job interviews… Continue Reading “The Exchange…”

Fussy…

Somewhere between sleep and wanting to see the world around him – this two month old can’t quite close those big eyes. So he fusses. A lot like you and I. We’re offered rest in Jesus. We can read that He grants sleep to… Continue Reading “Fussy…”

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…”
