The Formula…

Things change quickly – we go from young to old in the blink of an eye. From raising kids to holding grandbabies. From playing to working. From carefree to burdened. I’m not so good at change. A certain two year old in my life…

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…

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…

In Between…

1938-2011, July 23-27, choose a span of time. Notice the commonality: the hyphen. From point a to point b. A dash, in time. We live here in between. Between our first breath on earth and our last. Time here never seems long enough. Mortality…

For the Joy…

Caught in joy – that moment after working for months on a project, it’s finished, and you get the big check or promotion. That moment after training for months on end and you complete the race in record time. That moment after going through…

Projects – a lot of work. Restoring something – an old chair or an old house requires…yikes, patience. I’m wondering if Jesus has ever said ‘yikes’ as He takes us on to restore us to Him? For some the restoration of our spirit by…

Restless…

Easter – there is no more momentous event. Someone, a perfect Someone, was willing to make the absolute sacrifice – making it possible for you and me…to live forever. What kind of crazy love is that? The best, the only true. I’m thinking about…

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…

Living the Dream…

Sometimes things aren’t what they seem. Like teen boys putting on a manly persona – one foot still in childhood and the other ready to make their way in the world. We begin life thinking the universe revolves around us. Somewhere along the way…

Planted Where?

Not a master gardener by any stretch of the imagination, but I love containers with green and colors flowing over. What you and I don’t see is the spidery roots warm and cozy down in the soil. Drinking up moisture and nutrients and anchoring…
