Peaking Out…

A three month old buries his face in mommy’s neck as the photographer tries to capture his smile. A two year old boldly walks down the street until he hears me say “car” and then quickly hides behind my legs and peers out. Me…

Past Tense…

Sometimes ‘the past’ brings smiles, sometimes tears. Trying to forget, many live on a fast track to whatever tomorrow holds. Always seeking that next best thing, moment, breakthrough. Others, weighed down, can’t move into now. We get lost forgetting that Jesus has already secured…

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…

Just New…

It’s 2019 – time to look ahead – and maybe instead of wishing a Happy new year – how about just a new beginning? We are bound by time. Ticking off days and weeks then years. But God is outside of those bounds. No…

Hope Ends…

Know that saying ‘all good things must come to an end’? Like a really good book, wonderful day, reliable product, good paying job, cherished life. There will be many happy endings in this life, and many soul draining ones as well. I miss my…

The Fixer…

Can’t fix the things that seem most broken? Me either. We pray, try to forget or bury, do things, say things, buy things, and worry. And yet the very things we fret over are oh so useful in the hands of The Fixer. No…

I forgot – again. Forgot that I’m not alone. Forgot that fear is an enemy. Forgot that now isn’t all there is. But this is what God tells me, tells you: “And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the…

Under the Rainbow…

Wherever you are – stop – look around – we have it all right here and right now. Why do we need to long for ‘over the rainbow’, when right here under it is where God has put us? Under this rainbow, sure there’s…

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…

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…

Re-Do…No DIY Here

Too many times I need a re-do – my attitude, my words, my actions, even my thoughts. There’s mom-guilt, forgot to say thank you guilt, bad judgement guilt, selfishness guilt – and the list goes on. So wishing we could re-do: wipe out the…
