Can’t See

A little guy in my life is learning the joys of swimming. He’s gotten brave and put his head down in the water – kicked those legs and made it to momma – and now he’s trying to trust that he can make it… Continue Reading “Can’t See”

No more pits

Everything has a disclaimer and warning these days. The raisin container says, ‘may contain stems’; the olive jar says, ‘occasional pits’; entertainment has ratings, websites warn of ‘cookies’. Life seemingly doesn’t come with disclaimers or warnings. Nothing comes with a newborn telling parents this… Continue Reading “No more pits”

Endurance

My mother had lots of sayings. When I would be sassy, she’d remind me: You get a lot more with honey than vinegar. When things weren’t going so well for herself or others she would say: Into each life a little rain must fall.… Continue Reading “Endurance”

Can’t Wait…

So, have I mentioned lately I don’t like change, the unexpected, surprises? I think I’m a slow learner. (Best not to mention things we don’t like.) All three of those things happened at once last week. I’m not alone, grandsons don’t like change either.… Continue Reading “Can’t Wait…”

Why

I miss wonder. I’m sure I was once in awe at a dragonfly, a popsicle, a walk in the garden. Kids ask a lot of questions. Why is your hair crazy gwammy? How are your tacos cooking gwammy? Did Jesus make the legos too?… Continue Reading “Why”

It’s Time

Time perspective depends on age. At this point in my life, time is a precious commodity and seems to hurry by, days into weeks into months. Speedy little hands and feet see it as ‘what’s next’ – Gwammy, is it time to go to… Continue Reading “It’s Time”

Longing

We’re at that point: the place somewhere between the excitement of the approaching celebration and the fulfillment of all the plans and preparations. The longing time. Longing, in some ways, to move on because it seems life is too hectic. But really longing for… Continue Reading “Longing”

Above All

This year Christmas feels like a welcome breath of air, a sweet sound of peace, a deep sense of comfort. Perhaps things not being the same (normal) for months now is bringing about a desire for what is real and lasting. Although we long… Continue Reading “Above All”

Reset

Time for a reset – so much we can’t control. Evil does prevail at times. Was God looking the other way, asleep? Hardly. We tend to lose focus. We think all outcomes, that aren’t what we had hoped for, are personal. Like we’re the… Continue Reading “Reset”

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…”
