Not Alone

I’ve noticed that when we – all people – experience heartache, illness, tragedy, loss – our tendency is to feel like no one gets it. Like we’re the only ones who have experienced this. We retreat inside ourselves and, at times, nurse the hurt… Continue Reading “Not Alone”

More GOOD News

Ever ask this: ‘do you want the good news first or the bad news’? Then there’s always the line: ‘I saved the best news for last’. Pretty much our days are like that – good mixed with the bad, and some that are the… Continue Reading “More GOOD News”

The Highest

Four days before the world pauses and celebrates. There aren’t many silent nights in our world – so much heartache and anxiety. Choruses of Joy to the World or We Wish You A Merry Christmas aren’t ringing out in many public venues these days.… Continue Reading “The Highest”

I See You

Hide and seek with three- and four-year-olds takes a little patience – they want to play endlessly. Half the time they tell me where to hide or where they are going to hide. I walk around pretending to look, then out they pop saying… Continue Reading “I See You”

During my life I have fallen down stairs, slipped and fell with my first baby in my arms, and took a dive when marching after my disobedient toddlers on the freshly mopped floor. But my recent fall has left me sore, yet grateful. Didn’t… Continue Reading “Falling”

Power

Taking a hard look at the world around us, we see that the lust right now is for power. Not that this is something new, it’s just that before it was a combination of lust for wealth, or fame, or addictions, etc. Those “in… Continue Reading “Power”

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”

No more pits

Everything has a disclaimer and warning these days. The raisin container says, ‘may contain stems’; the olive jar says, ‘occasional pits’; entertainment has ratings, websites warn of ‘cookies’. Life seemingly doesn’t come with disclaimers or warnings. Nothing comes with a newborn telling parents this… Continue Reading “No more pits”
