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…

Quiet…

Deep in thought lately, needing time before putting it into words. Ever have times like that? Times where you just have to – need to – be a little quiet? I’m kind of loud sometimes. Life is loud lots of times. But God speaks…

Words…

In all creation only Adam and Eve were given this gift: words. From the beginning God put language into His image bearers. Imagine this task: “So the LORD God formed from the ground all the wild animals and all the birds of the sky….

Heart Beat…

Christmas Eve…Where are our hearts? Too often scotch tape and shiny paper wrap our souls. Time to break free and be wrapped – with wonder, with the Gift itself. Instead of wrapping up boxes and details, how about we just give rapt attention to…

Receive It…

How are you about receiving – gifts, praise, correction, criticism? For me, all of those are hard. For the sweet ones like gifts, I’m awkward, wanting the giver to feel special. For the hard ones like correction, oh I must admit I don’t like…

Never Lost – Have GHS…

Easy access to GPS has truly changed how we get from here to there. Used to be we would listen carefully to someone’s directions, or for a longer trip we made sure we had maps. I am so impressed with the pioneers of old….

New Kid…

Remember being the new kid? So uncomfortable – lonely. Wondering if we will ever fit in. I’ve thought long and hard about borders. Volleying back in forth – thoughts like how can we sustain this and what can we do to help. Then I…

HAPPY TODDLER PLAYTIME
