A Mother’s Protection…(Guest Blog)

Today, a talented young writer, Joelle Denoff, is guest blogging – I wanted to share her wisdom and her love with all of you. May you be blessed. I recall as a child always looking to my parents for protection when I felt vulnerable…

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…

Fussy…

Somewhere between sleep and wanting to see the world around him – this two month old can’t quite close those big eyes. So he fusses. A lot like you and I. We’re offered rest in Jesus. We can read that He grants sleep to…

This is America…

Proud to be an American? If this is a bad thing, why does the whole world still clamor to visit or move here? America isn’t just prosperity – although we have enjoyed that. America isn’t just freedom of religion – though we have enjoyed…

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…

Is that all?

We pray – asking for healing, for finances, for brokenness, for relationships. Believing?? For God nothing is impossible – but don’t we pray like maybe He can’t/won’t? The truth is, for those who call on Jesus the Savior of the world: healing – if not now, then…

A Tightrope & The Nice Glass…

Maybe I should have named this post: What An 18 Year Old Woman-Girl Can Teach You. She slept so soundly while she was here. But a gentle nudge to her foot brought wide eyes and a smile. I wondered, this light sleeping mother/grandmother that…

Whispers Are Louder…

      When my daughter was little and had something really important to tell me she would climb up beside me, move my hair, and whisper her news. Whisper moments were precious and I listened carefully. I’ve noticed in a crowd it’s not the noisy conversations…
