Get Close

Sometimes my grandsons just have to touch me. We can be playing trucks or train and suddenly my big-for-his-age four year old is in my lap, my growing-too-big two year old is putting my arm around him, and my too-heavy-to-lift one year old needs… Continue Reading “Get Close”

3 a.m.

I have those nights. Ones where I wake up – wide awake. So comfortable, don’t want to move – but now the brain starts going. I try to remember to ask: “Who do you want me to pray for Lord?” – but sometimes even… Continue Reading “3 a.m.”

Transplant

This is a hurting world. Broken, lost, trying to breathe. All around the effect of centuries of sin – and its relentless pursuit – swirl. As I write, a friend’s adult son fights for his life – a fall at work left him with… Continue Reading “Transplant”

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”

Surprise!

I don’t like surprises. (Weird, I know.) In the many years I’ve been married, my husband has maybe been able to surprise me once or twice. I’m just one of those people who likes knowing what’s next. Our sweet group of Jesus lovers is… Continue Reading “Surprise!”

So this is Love

The youngest grandson is a bit over one, he’s been slower to warm up to me than the others. But recently, when I enter his home or he comes to mine, he comes running, arms up – and in my embrace, his head buries… Continue Reading “So this is Love”

Together

After a week away from me, my four year old grandson hugged my legs tightly, a week was too long. My closest friend lives across the country, our times together are few, we beg for time to slow down when we get together. Looking… Continue Reading “Together”

Turbulence…

I haven’t been on an airplane in a while – but the last time there was a bit of turbulence. It’s pretty much a helpless feeling. Either worry or keep reading your book. Kind of like these days. Only the turbulence seems to happen… Continue Reading “Turbulence…”

EVERY One…

Hard – that’s all there is to it. Our world is in such turmoil. Here in America we’re (once again) tearing ourselves apart. The headlines revolve around a man who died – his family and friends despondent – and the lives of the policemen… Continue Reading “EVERY One…”

This is Love…

Our world has some messed up ideas of love. And, truth be told, in our best moments our love is still pretty selfish. Turns out that all the Disney fairytales aren’t love. All the Hollywood steamy scenes aren’t love. All the happily ever afters… Continue Reading “This is Love…”
