Consider…

Rest and unrest are sort of coexisting in our lives these days. In some ways, many are having to do life a bit simpler. Less ‘going out’, more staying in the place we’re blessed with. May not be much for some and may be… Continue Reading “Consider…”

The Best Way…

One thing I’m missing: smiles. I can’t see them – masks only reveal eyes. So I’m trying to see those, but I’ve noticed this: people are looking down a lot these days. I’ve wondered about the missing smiles and the downcast eyes. Wondering how… Continue Reading “The Best Way…”

Happy Ending…

Don’t you love a good book? Fiction or non-fiction – written well, I can’t get enough. Especially the happy ending ones. The book of John ends this way: “Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I… Continue Reading “Happy Ending…”

Living Now…

Day to day life is a bit different lately. A lot more thought given to running a quick errand, and here in Florida, no more beach trips for the time being – or any fun places for that matter. But the living is a… Continue Reading “Living Now…”

Unsettling…

Normal is no more. Years of normal definitely tell me this isn’t it. Sheltering in place – like during a storm, only the weather isn’t the issue. Covering faces and hands. Avoiding hugging, not getting close. Jobs gone in a matter of days. Unsettling… Continue Reading “Unsettling…”

This is the Life…

It’s different – being older. When my favorite three year old comes over and we come up with ideas of what to do next we both go full speed saying: “Let’s do it!” I think at three there is only one speed – full… Continue Reading “This is the Life…”

Forever…

Some moments we just wish wouldn’t end. Moments like when a three year old puts his arm around your neck and says: “Grammy I stay with you forever!” In the midst of laughter and fun come heart-felt words spoken by the innocence of childhood.… Continue Reading “Forever…”

This is Love…

Our world has some messed up ideas of love. And, truth be told, in our best moments our love is still pretty selfish. Turns out that all the Disney fairytales aren’t love. All the Hollywood steamy scenes aren’t love. All the happily ever afters… Continue Reading “This is Love…”

Heart Beat…

Christmas Eve…Where are our hearts? Too often scotch tape and shiny paper wrap our souls. Time to break free and be wrapped – with wonder, with the Gift itself. Instead of wrapping up boxes and details, how about we just give rapt attention to… Continue Reading “Heart Beat…”

Better His Presence…

Sometimes the most fun days are those spent sitting and laughing with someone we love. My hubby, my best friend, my children, and now grandchildren. Their presence making life sweet. Sometimes a quiet, no-interruption day complete with breezes and mountains and a good book… Continue Reading “Better His Presence…”
