Required…

Sometimes we cling so tightly to something that it slips right through our grasp. Look at the things we cling to: a spouse for fear of losing them, children in fear something may happen to them, a job fearing another may not come along,… Continue Reading “Required…”

Consider…

Rest and unrest are sort of coexisting in our lives these days. In some ways, many are having to do life a bit simpler. Less ‘going out’, more staying in the place we’re blessed with. May not be much for some and may be… Continue Reading “Consider…”

Passing Through…

Ever get wrapped up in all the mess? Angry or despairing? Heartbroken or lost? Too easy these days. The constant of fear, worry, the unknown – words and actions of others that seem out of control. How do we navigate? When all I want… Continue Reading “Passing Through…”

Watch, Stand, Be…Love

It’s hot and Saharan dust is swirling over many lands. Covid still abounds. Hate is marching in the streets. Do you, like me, find yourself sighing – a lot? Man is not in control. We can’t control the weather. We can’t control pandemics. We… Continue Reading “Watch, Stand, Be…Love”

Two Places…

Humans have inhabited two places: Eden and after Eden. Just a handful of millennia ago a man and a woman knew no shame, hurt, fear. They named animals, marveled at flowers and fruit, found newness at every turn. Even walked with God. “The man… Continue Reading “Two Places…”

Ready, Set…

Do you find yourself saying ‘wow, it’s Friday again’ – or Monday or whatever day? Seems like time moves at warp speed. I can barely remember three days ago, so much happens. Maybe it’s because our world is ‘bigger’ now. Used to be we… Continue Reading “Ready, Set…”

Written…

Easter is a few short days away. It will be the first one (since becoming a Christian) that I have not been in church celebrating all that this remembrance means. I’m hoping there’s a lot less bunnies and colored eggs this year – and… Continue Reading “Written…”

Unsettling…

Normal is no more. Years of normal definitely tell me this isn’t it. Sheltering in place – like during a storm, only the weather isn’t the issue. Covering faces and hands. Avoiding hugging, not getting close. Jobs gone in a matter of days. Unsettling… Continue Reading “Unsettling…”

Peace Like…

Perhaps my friend nailed it recently when she determined the reason pressure never seems to let up is that we live in an impatient world. In just a few decades we’ve gone from looking through a catalog and paying ‘shipping and handling’ to scrolling… Continue Reading “Peace Like…”

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”
