Unbelief

So easy to live like we believe when all is well. Right now I’m in the all is well – no major crisis, heartache, or fear. But where will my belief be when… When things aren’t so easy. A friend is walking through ALS… Continue Reading “Unbelief”

Endurance

My mother had lots of sayings. When I would be sassy, she’d remind me: You get a lot more with honey than vinegar. When things weren’t going so well for herself or others she would say: Into each life a little rain must fall.… Continue Reading “Endurance”

Right Now

Ever driven by a place countless times and not really notice it? Read something and miss the story? Thinking maybe our brains are a bit harried in this fast-paced world. We take in what we think is important, but often miss the good stuff.… Continue Reading “Right Now”

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…”
