Above All

This year Christmas feels like a welcome breath of air, a sweet sound of peace, a deep sense of comfort. Perhaps things not being the same (normal) for months now is bringing about a desire for what is real and lasting. Although we long… Continue Reading “Above All”

The Giving…

I’m in to reading then listening to old hymns these days. I didn’t grow up with them – because I didn’t grow up with Him. What I’ve learned is the soul’s need is timeless. Today I listened to a refrain and thought about all… Continue Reading “The Giving…”

Wonder-full Plans…

I’m noticing lately all us wanderers. I can’t help but think: what if, instead, we were wonderers? We wander around stores looking for gifts. We wander around outdoors seeking quiet. We wander all our days and what do we find? Emptiness mostly. So I’m… Continue Reading “Wonder-full Plans…”

Take My Breath Away…
