He Came to Show Us

I know – I’ve been absent. For the first time in ten years. I’ve been a bit lost. How about you? It’s that time when all is glitter and lights and good cheer. Only sometimes…it’s not. I see it all around our broken world.… Continue Reading “He Came to Show Us”

Counted

Time to work my way out of all that has silenced me the past few weeks. Only one way I know of: list the blessings. When I am lost in all that is wrong, first I hear my mother’s voice: ‘Count your blessings, not… Continue Reading “Counted”

One Thing

Laying in bed longing for a good night’s sleep I started to ask God “Just this one thing” – when I realized that really I want a lot more than one thing. No, nothing material, not money or things. No, nothing self-fulfilling, not popularity… Continue Reading “One Thing”

Don’t Lose Touch

You and me – we don’t cherish difficulties. We don’t look forward to seeing what’s on the other side of hard. Fortunately, that’s normal. After several days of trying to figure out ‘why’, ‘how’, and a lot of ‘I can’ts’, I was weary. Body… Continue Reading “Don’t Lose Touch”

Every Morning

Morning person or night owl? I’ve always been an early riser – love to greet the day (these days earlier than necessary but that’s an age thing and a whole other subject, not going there). In that stillness of pre-dawn, I pad around while… Continue Reading “Every Morning”

What we need to: hear

I’m a words person. Years ago, Gary Smalley wrote the 5 Love Languages; mine is words. Flowers don’t do it. Gifts are ok. But a card with love words and additional handwritten sentiment, that’s what means the most to me. Our voice isn’t just… Continue Reading “What we need to: hear”

Coasting

There were stretches on our back roads adventure that were smooth sailing. Easy roads without elevation changes or blind curves. Other than watching the speed limit, we could coast along enjoying the scenery. Thankfully we have times in our lives like that as well.… Continue Reading “Coasting”

Winding Road

Mountain roads can be tricky. The curves, switchbacks, and altitude climbs aren’t for the faint of heart. Our most recent excursion was the most challenging. While I truly enjoy driving those mountain roads, these particularly put me to the test. If you go back… Continue Reading “Winding Road”

Road Trip

(For the next few weeks I invite you to go on a road trip with me. Some of them will be uphill, some winding, some smooth – but the final destination is worth the trip.) Done any road trips this summer? We did –… Continue Reading “Road Trip”

One Way

Life seem a bit heavy? Good news hard to come by? Yeah, it is. Sometimes the sad news is half a world away, sometimes just a couple thousand miles, and sometimes right where we are. Last week one of my grandsons ‘graduated’ from preschool.… Continue Reading “One Way”
