He Really Will…

Things don’t always work out the way we think they should. Sometimes the thing you thought for sure would be nothing, is something. Here’s where I am, can you identify? I don’t like walking through hard things, unsure circumstances, relationship confrontations, financial upsets, health… Continue Reading “He Really Will…”

Happy Ending…

Don’t you love a good book? Fiction or non-fiction – written well, I can’t get enough. Especially the happy ending ones. The book of John ends this way: “Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I… Continue Reading “Happy Ending…”

Unsettling…

Normal is no more. Years of normal definitely tell me this isn’t it. Sheltering in place – like during a storm, only the weather isn’t the issue. Covering faces and hands. Avoiding hugging, not getting close. Jobs gone in a matter of days. Unsettling… Continue Reading “Unsettling…”

Peace Like…

Perhaps my friend nailed it recently when she determined the reason pressure never seems to let up is that we live in an impatient world. In just a few decades we’ve gone from looking through a catalog and paying ‘shipping and handling’ to scrolling… Continue Reading “Peace Like…”

6 Replacements, No 7

A rumbling whoosh of electricity – exclamations of ‘what was that?’. He runs outside checking, I go from room to room. Then I see it, fire in the oven.  The element in our oven super-heated as I warmed breakfast. We called about replacement parts,… Continue Reading “6 Replacements, No 7”

Even Us…

So I’ve been doing this thing, most mornings. I got an old hymnal (btw I can’t sing…at least not well). Starting with hymn one I’ve been listening to and singing along. A joyful noise for God only. Because there’s something about praising Him. Each… Continue Reading “Even Us…”

The Fixer…

Can’t fix the things that seem most broken? Me either. We pray, try to forget or bury, do things, say things, buy things, and worry. And yet the very things we fret over are oh so useful in the hands of The Fixer. No… Continue Reading “The Fixer…”

Falling Together…

Ever have one of those almost asleep moments when suddenly you feel like your falling – then jerk – and you realize your safely in bed? Falling is one of those fear-full things. Hollywood still uses falling out of buildings, off cliffs, over the side… Continue Reading “Falling Together…”

More…

Some things we want more of – some we don’t. Seems like everyone wants more money, more of what someone else has, more time. No one wants more heartache, more pain, or more wrinkles. And yet more money is never enough. More of those we… Continue Reading “More…”

What’s Best…

Lifetimes are spent trying to do what’s best, have what’s best, wishing for what’s best, planning for what’s best. But if it’s doing, we’ll always fall short. If it’s having, someone will always have better. If it’s wishing, much time will be lost. If… Continue Reading “What’s Best…”
