All I Want…

Christmas lists are being made. Toys, games for the young. Clothes, electronics for the adults. And more. So here’s a prayer to carry into the coming month – a little something to rest in, to rejoice over, to remember for The Gift… Let not…

Hope Happens…

Any given day the headlines are scary reading – suicide, shooting, missing. And hope seems lost. And yet…the widow clings, the terrified students grasp, the mother and father print posters. It’s a soul thing – we know hope is real. We know, but how?…

5 Tuesdays to…Hope

Why hope? Hope is so hard to define, yet it’s what we cling to. So maybe it’s time to not only say it but believe, know it, count on it. Today is my birthday – I hope I don’t look my age, I hope…

High Pressure Hope…

If we have one cool thing in our house, it’s our shower. What we hadn’t noticed was the water pressure slowly getting lower. Until a sort of whining sound started. How had we not noticed how slow the water had become? It was gradual.That’s…

Soaked…

Rain, rain, rain – for weeks. The canvas canopy over an outdoor swing was sagging – I pushed up and – whoosh – over the edge cascaded water. It caught the attention of my one year old grandson, but I hadn’t noticed he had walked…

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…

Search & Rescue…

Ever notice the hardest person to be honest with is…yourself? I sit down to have a little prayer time, God time, telling myself ‘I’m choosing what’s best’ – all the while thinking about what I need to get done. What I’m really doing is…

Just A Little Bit…

Are things going just the way you planned? I’m guessing each of us smirked or exhaled ‘no way’. Now I know not everybody lives by a plan, an agenda, a ‘this is the way it should be’ idea. But I’m thinking most of us…

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…

Gradually Graduating…

Graduations make me sad – they usually mark separation. A child finally spreading wings, and off they go. As a Jesus follower we all have an ultimate graduation day – only no longer a separation, but a reunion. A homecoming to beat all and…

Comin’ Home…

Mom… she always said ‘Come home anytime’. When I would get a date on the calendar I always called and said ‘I’m comin’ home’. Home was not the house I grew up in, as we moved many times during my childhood. And home wasn’t a place where she…

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…
