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”

Changing

I’m looking out over trees of yellow, red, orange – the valley below is showing its array of colors as well. Winter is coming early to the mountains this year. The first freeze is only days away. A young woman at the farmers market… Continue Reading “Changing”

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”

J.O.Y.

Need a little? Joy that is. A friend recently told me “You can’t let ‘this’ keep you from living life.” What is your ‘this’? Maybe you don’t have one…yet. But we all do from time to time. For a long time, I’ve been signing… Continue Reading “J.O.Y.”

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”

What we need to: see

Never a dull moment – I think that about sums up life these days, right? I for one am a bit weary and long for a break, a quiet, a sense it’s all okay. Recently we flew to see our out-of-state son and his… Continue Reading “What we need to: see”

Recap

The last few weeks I’ve woven a faith journey into a road trip taken earlier this summer. Today, I’m who knows how high above the earth, with someone else at the wheel. Keeping it short this week by taking a few moments to ponder… Continue Reading “Recap”
