Do Everything…

You can learn a lot from a two year old – about being brave, about trying. I’m not one who likes to try new things. I like the routine of life. Sure, a vacation here and there. But don’t talk to me about eating…

How to Live…

Heard this recently but not sure who to credit for saying it: “If He thought we worth dying for, isn’t He worth living for?” This is what Christians and non-Christians alike miss daily: living for HIM. Self is such an imposer. Our focus trends…

What We Need To Hear…

Lots of things I want to hear: ‘you look great’, ‘good job’, ‘I’ll take care of it’ – and the list could go on. I’m learning (very slowly) to check my words before they tumble out. But I’m also learning to listen and see…

A Little Help Here…

Do-it-yourselfer? Got it handled? Not so much… Accepting help isn’t always easy for me. Somehow it makes me feel ‘less than’. That I’m not smart enough, strong enough, good enough. And so it is with too many of us when it comes to seeking…

Bigger…

Seems like bigger is better – paycheck, house, popularity. Children always want to be bigger. We pick the bigger apple or head of lettuce. It goes back to Paul’s lesson: contentment. Ugh, that just doesn’t fit today’s world does it? The lesson is good,…

Goodness Grace

Thanks—giving. Maybe separating the words a little shows the heart of the celebration. Not Thanks-getting, but the giving of thanks. Christmas is up in the stores before turkeys for the table are being shipped. We barely breathe in the aroma of our favorite foods before we…

Delight…

     I love this word – d e l i g h t… How often do we use such a great word? Not often enough for sure… Did you know its both a verb and a noun? Something you ‘do’ – and something you ‘get’. Sometimes we…

the Violas are back…

     I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t like remembering — remembering their childhood, remembering crazy things they did, remembering a loved one, remembering God’s faithfulness, remembering how things used to be… It is fun to watch the animated faces as people recall and often…

Lighthouse for the Soul…

     A few years back my best friend visited the area where I live. One outing I planned was to visit a lighthouse, climb to the top, look at the awesome view, and have lunch… To the top was about 108 feet of winding corkscrew steps…It wasn’t until we…

Kindness On A Bicycle

Sometimes things we miss in the hurry of our everyday, God will put plainly in sight when we least expect it… I pulled up to the stop light and before I could check my phone for a text, or look in the mirror to see my reflection,…
