No You Can’t

Learning these days that all the “I can’ts” I’ve often sighed or screamed out are holy ground. The place where God reminds me, again, that I cannot but He can – and, in His time, He will. We’ve grown up in a world of… Continue Reading “No You Can’t”

Never Fall

Playing the memory card game with a four-year-old is different: when he picks up a card, he wants to keep looking til he finds the match. If I pick a card he really likes, he wants me to surrender it to him so he… Continue Reading “Never Fall”

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”

EVERY One…

Hard – that’s all there is to it. Our world is in such turmoil. Here in America we’re (once again) tearing ourselves apart. The headlines revolve around a man who died – his family and friends despondent – and the lives of the policemen… Continue Reading “EVERY One…”

I’m With Him…

Here’s a word for today: Grace. Don’t think the world gets it. Do we? There’s a three year old in my life. His world, today’s world, moves so fast. Expected to know so much only three years into this craziness called life. And I… Continue Reading “I’m With Him…”

He Comes…

Christmas can’t be contained in a date 2,000 years ago. There was that one special Bethlehem day – but daily now is the coming. Then there’s the day you found Christ – right there with you all along. And there’s today when the next… Continue Reading “He Comes…”

Right There…

These days I wonder more about terms like ‘leap of faith’ or ‘stepping into the unknown’. So easily we forget how near, how intimate our God is with us. Knows the number of hairs on our heads. Knows our thoughts before we speak them.… Continue Reading “Right There…”

The Fixer…

Can’t fix the things that seem most broken? Me either. We pray, try to forget or bury, do things, say things, buy things, and worry. And yet the very things we fret over are oh so useful in the hands of The Fixer. No… Continue Reading “The Fixer…”

The Call…

Invites are great – the call asking you over to dinner. The card asking you to attend the wedding. The text saying ‘want to get coffee’. Many years before my mom passed away I began calling her weekly. It became our habit and it… Continue Reading “The Call…”

Brushstrokes…

At dusk last night clouds were backlit by a soon setting sun. Pinks took over where white puffs had just been. Streaks of peach arched from west to east. A canvas stretched¬†sky wide. Brushstrokes of the Master Artist. This morning a bluest blue¬†canvas greeted… Continue Reading “Brushstrokes…”
