RESToration…

Projects – a lot of work. Restoring something – an old chair or an old house requires…yikes, patience. I’m wondering if Jesus has ever said ‘yikes’ as He takes us on to restore us to Him? For some the restoration of our spirit by…

You Are Qualified…

Thirty-four years – celebrating a life together. As strong ocean breezes toss my hair, I wander back in time. Years ago a prideful young man and a selfish young woman found a grace-full God and determined they would live a life with God at…

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…

Fix It…

I’m a fixer – I don’t want anyone hurting, sad, left out, wandering. And patience isn’t part of fixing – now please. Many years – and life’s triumphs and defeats – have softened the edges of my ‘just do it this way’ attitude — mostly. Then I…

Not My Perfect…

Maybe we all need to just get it out. Just shout it. I MESSED UP! I didn’t parent my kids perfect, I lost my temper, I waited too long, I forgot…fill in your ‘I messed up’ here _________. We live in a world with little patience for…

     Filled, overflowing – do you ever feel ‘filled up’ – the satisfying kind? Like when the skies are blue, no one is in crisis, and you sigh contentedly? That’s my moment right now. We all know in this world that ‘feeling’ can change in the…

Why Me…

     Not what you’re thinking – no whining here. The ‘why me’ is the amaze me statement… Why did God choose me? Choose you? It’s nothing short of amazing – me? With all my hang-ups and you with all yours? But that’s what He…

Mason Jars…

     It’s hard for us to let things sit empty – we have this need to fill them… Jugs become loose change collectors, boxes become mail catchers, some jars become candle holders – others become flower vases… Never does a bouquet look lovelier than…

Seeds of…

     Eighteen years ago I dug up a tiny sapling from beneath the huge tree in our front yard. I went to the back yard and gauged where I thought it should go (seriously I thought it was way far from the deck). Today it has reached that maturity…
