No End Beginning…

A lazy spring day, long lunch with a friend, the perfect vacation – things we wish wouldn’t end. It’s hard for us humans – endings. Simple things like a beautiful day are one thing but the death of a sweet friend? Unless…it’s not the…

Perfect Timing…

Does waiting drive you crazy? Children are counting down days til Christmas. Adults count days til the next big game, movie sequel, retirement – or you fill in the blank with your ‘can’t wait’ list. At the birth of Jesus the world had been…

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…

This Day…

Sometimes loved ones are just too far away. Maybe no longer here on earth. Maybe living more than a short car ride away. Maybe separated by walls put up with harsh words. Every now and then I catch the scent of my mom (a…

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…

A friend said she makes her list then asks God what His agenda is – instead of bless her list, she asks what on this list is Your agenda, so it can be blessed. Mouth hanging open. Simple. (I think I’m slow.) Yes, of course, in our…

About Being…

Today’s ‘junk’ mail caught my attention – in bold pink letters it read: The Perfect Life Is In Your Future. At first I rolled my eyes because the flyer was for a Senior Living Workshop. One, I can’t get into the whole senior thing because…

Measure Up…

Simpler times are those years filled with lining children up to see how much they’ve grown. Each half inch (or more) duly noted with a date. Some years seemed like they were beanstalks, some were slower. Then comes the more complicated years called being…

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…

The Great Exchange…

     Sometimes we bring home something that doesn’t work out as expected. Maybe it’s clothing that just didn’t fit right after all. Maybe it’s a new plumbing piece that wasn’t the right shape. Sometimes it’s food that had gone bad but we didn’t know…
