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”

The Climb

Native Florida girl that I am, elevation changes make my ears pop. Lots of chewing gum and yawning. But something about those Tennessee/North Carolina mountains beckons me. Thinking I had already tackled the most challenging part of driving on this trip, I had no… Continue Reading “The Climb”

Want you to know

For the first time in nine years, I’m taking a break for a month. Lord willing, I will post again towards the end of July. Until then, here are a few things I want you to know… 4th of July – God is working… Continue Reading “Want you to know”

Singing in the brokenness

I don’t know about you, but I can’t sing – well I can, but most would not call it that. Problem is, when it comes to singing to Jesus, I can’t do it quietly. I have to raise my voice and my hands. I’ve… Continue Reading “Singing in the brokenness”

Not Alone

I’ve noticed that when we – all people – experience heartache, illness, tragedy, loss – our tendency is to feel like no one gets it. Like we’re the only ones who have experienced this. We retreat inside ourselves and, at times, nurse the hurt… Continue Reading “Not Alone”

Least Expecteds

My oldest grandson has always been the most somber of the group. When he was little, and something would happen he would say: “Wasn’t expecting that.” Like much of life, right? I think we wish there would be lots of warning, or at least… Continue Reading “Least Expecteds”

What are you saying

Amazing that we, mere humans, have words to share. Volumes overflowing have been written, songs sung, speeches given. To us alone, God has given the gift of speech, language. There are lots of unworthy words uttered every second. Expressing thoughts, with no regard for… Continue Reading “What are you saying”

Shiny & New

Who doesn’t love new car smell, new vacation discovery, newborn baby softness? Once, so long ago, all the world teemed with new. The newness was never meant to fade. The wonder was never meant to become ho-hum. But it did. The beauty of sunrise… Continue Reading “Shiny & New”

How Many Tears

Kitty got old; his heart gave out – at least the pumping of it. His heart for us was true to the end, purring and loving me like he had from the time we got him from the “homeless shelter”. The day was spent… Continue Reading “How Many Tears”

Uncomfortable

A storm was gathering – as is often the case on a humid south Florida afternoon. I went outside to listen as the thunder gathered – my mood was similar. I was in a waiting time, for a phone call, knowing it wouldn’t be… Continue Reading “Uncomfortable”
