Hold My Hand…

Sometimes we just need to squeeze a hand that loves us. During labor I watched as my daughter fiercely squeezed her husband’s hand. When I got close to her face once she grasped my hand with all her might as well. And when her…

Hope Challenge…

Lots of things are contagious – mostly stuff we don’t want to catch. Like the flu or the common cold. My husband used to have a poster in his office that said ‘Attitudes are Contagious – Is Yours Worth Catching?’ I think the same…

What is Unseen…

This life is all about changes – for a girl who doesn’t like change, it’s a bit unsettling. Ask my husband. I can live in the same house all my days and be content, order the same thing at my favorite restaurant and laugh…

With All My Heart…

Marriage – a pledge to love despite obstacles and with all your heart. Parenting – we commit to meet their needs and love them with all our heart. Friendship – requires a lot of work (and a good one is worth it) – and…

Things I Thought…

Ever say “I can’t get by without ____ or I can’t live without _____”? Things I thought I couldn’t live without: a paycheck – until my husband’s business failed – we had three children at home – I didn’t work. We’re all here. Air conditioning – until being at…

Promise 33

In a few days I will have been married to a man who said ‘I do’ and has meant it for 33 years. These days it’s hard to find someone committed for 33 minutes let alone years. But this man has stuck by my side through…

Grace…

     Grace started with a simple gift. A flag made by a happy crafter and given by a gentle friend. I loved it the minute I laid eyes on it. A month or so later the new year was approaching and a friend said ‘Have you…

Bad Weld…

     As I drove home a loud noise started and I could hear a scraping sound. I pulled over and looked under, sure enough there was this long assembly hanging down – turned out to be a bad weld. Normally if something goes wrong…

Grace Spread…

     If life is brief and time something we cannot bottle and save up, then I want to spread a blanket of grace over all those who come my way. Whether I have you in my life always because you’re my child or husband…

His Girl…

     You know those moments where your heart swells? Those times when your doggy looks at you with soulful eyes. Those times a toddler’s sweet voice undoes you. The times a strong hand with a wedding band covers yours in assurance. What treasure there…

Peace Whispers…

     Yesterday mama and papa bird landed outside my window to entertain me for a few minutes. His was bright red with black eyeliner. She was plumper with a brown back and blonde breast – but it was those tail feathers and beak that…

H. U. G….

     Handing. Us. Grace. – every blooming flower, newborn cry, mountain meadow, crashing wave, bird in flight, frog croaking, butterfly fluttering – hugs from our Creator… I’m a hugger – I especially love hugging someone unexpectedly. I don’t understand non-huggers – cause I know…
