What Next?

I woke up early (too early) recently and found my mind drifting to insignificant things and becoming irritated easily. Getting up, I sat in the dark – and though it took a while, I figured it out. Anxiety. Whether it’s corona virus or our…

Quiet…

Deep in thought lately, needing time before putting it into words. Ever have times like that? Times where you just have to – need to – be a little quiet? I’m kind of loud sometimes. Life is loud lots of times. But God speaks…

Just Ask…

When I was young I was teased a lot about being quiet. I came to truly dislike the ‘cat got your tongue’ phrase. I was a listener. I prefer the intimacy of relationships. There would be friends and family alike who would be surprised…

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…

Receive It…

How are you about receiving – gifts, praise, correction, criticism? For me, all of those are hard. For the sweet ones like gifts, I’m awkward, wanting the giver to feel special. For the hard ones like correction, oh I must admit I don’t like…

Do Everything…

You can learn a lot from a two year old – about being brave, about trying. I’m not one who likes to try new things. I like the routine of life. Sure, a vacation here and there. But don’t talk to me about eating…

Rest…

Some nights sleep is illusive. I’m not fretting about anything in particular. And weariness isn’t really in my mind or body – could it be soul rest is missing? In this world, that wouldn’t be a hard thing to miss out on. Just when…

HAPPY TODDLER PLAYTIME
