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”

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”

Getting There

The last few days of our back roads trip started with a final descent leaving foothills in the rearview mirror. But not without one last hold-on-to-the-wheel-here-we-go moment. I thought the twists and turns were behind us, it was okay a few more were left,… Continue Reading “Getting There”

Just me & You

It’s easy for us to complain or, to put it more gently, bemoan or grumble – because there’s plenty each day that tries to take away our peace. Things like unexpected pain, illness, financial burdens, you can add yours here… Found myself in the… Continue Reading “Just me & You”

Live In

In Georgia there is a town whose tag line is: Great and Growing. Little things like a town having a motto that’s fun and uplifting, help make life a little lighter. There’s a lot of hard, negative, not so good things we could dwell… Continue Reading “Live In”

From here to…

For a while, a little two-year-old in my life was enamored with Buzz – you know Buzz Lightyear. Though he was still learning to talk, ‘To infinity and beyond’ rang throughout the house, in the car, wherever. When you’re two or thirty-two or anything… Continue Reading “From here to…”

Not Alone

I’ve noticed that when we – all people – experience heartache, illness, tragedy, loss – our tendency is to feel like no one gets it. Like we’re the only ones who have experienced this. We retreat inside ourselves and, at times, nurse the hurt… Continue Reading “Not Alone”
