Great Expectations…

Sometimes great things aren’t pretty but they’re still what’s best. I have a friend who signs her emails and notes with her name and then: ‘Expecting Great Things’. Not because she wishes them, not because she deserves them, not because she has it all….

Even Us…

So I’ve been doing this thing, most mornings. I got an old hymnal (btw I can’t sing…at least not well). Starting with hymn one I’ve been listening to and singing along. A joyful noise for God only. Because there’s something about praising Him. Each…

Hold My Wait…

We’re only one week into a new year and already anxiousness and fretting have penetrated most days. Oh, I’m good at disguising them in prayers. Asking the only One who can accomplish my God sized longings. Truth is though, the many words and the…

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…

What’s Ahead?

Truth? For everyone who ever has, is, or will walk this earth – nothing is static. Life changes – sometimes gradually, sometimes in an instant. About two thousand years ago Jesus’ cousin John was born. His papa hadn’t been able to speak since learning…

Free Fall…

Ever actually seen a field of wheat? Me either – but I love the pictures showing stalks gently blowing in the breeze, like a sea of gold. These days machines do much of the work taking the grain from the stalk and leaves –…

Under the Rainbow…

Wherever you are – stop – look around – we have it all right here and right now. Why do we need to long for ‘over the rainbow’, when right here under it is where God has put us? Under this rainbow, sure there’s…

Just Try…

Aren’t we all a little tired or tweets, likes, smileys, and thumbs up? The constant desire for more and the let down of not being ‘liked’ – by people we don’t even know. Maybe we need an ‘insincere love’ break. Facebook posts get lost in…
