Revolution

Today I am watching an everchanging landscape – mountains disappear and reappear as Smoky Mountain mist twirls up from the ground and descends from the clouds. It’s peaceful. A beautiful mystery of creation that at once enshrouds and then lays bare a beautiful landscape.… Continue Reading “Revolution”

Honor

A foreign word these days – honor. And yet when used, it’s misused. We give honor to worthless things. We call people heroes flippantly. In this culture of constant affirmation, words become watered down. We are so consumed with being entertained, that scoring baskets… Continue Reading “Honor”

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”

No more pits

Everything has a disclaimer and warning these days. The raisin container says, ‘may contain stems’; the olive jar says, ‘occasional pits’; entertainment has ratings, websites warn of ‘cookies’. Life seemingly doesn’t come with disclaimers or warnings. Nothing comes with a newborn telling parents this… Continue Reading “No more pits”

Open Hands

My hands are starting to reveal my age. I can still picture my mother’s hands and I adore my daughter’s hands, beautiful. Their hands and mine have changed countless diapers, cooked countless meals, and wiped up countless spills. They are hands that have cuddled… Continue Reading “Open Hands”

Longing

We’re at that point: the place somewhere between the excitement of the approaching celebration and the fulfillment of all the plans and preparations. The longing time. Longing, in some ways, to move on because it seems life is too hectic. But really longing for… Continue Reading “Longing”

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”

This is the Life…

It’s different – being older. When my favorite three year old comes over and we come up with ideas of what to do next we both go full speed saying: “Let’s do it!” I think at three there is only one speed – full… Continue Reading “This is the Life…”

Walls…

Chalk made train tracks, tricycle raceways, and roads for tiny trucks – my creative abilities have increased. While building tunnels for little boys is an adventure – I’ve recently put up some protective walls that need to be torn down. This Christian walk is… Continue Reading “Walls…”

What’s it worth?

Worth. That’s a heavy word. So many contexts. The value of an item for purchase versus our budget. The time required for an outcome versus our schedule. Encounters that cause us to pause and ask: is it worth it? Consciously or unconsciously we weigh… Continue Reading “What’s it worth?”
