Heart Beat…

Christmas Eve…Where are our hearts? Too often scotch tape and shiny paper wrap our souls. Time to break free and be wrapped – with wonder, with the Gift itself. Instead of wrapping up boxes and details, how about we just give rapt attention to… Continue Reading “Heart Beat…”

Heart Filler…

When I first became a Christian everything about this new life was new to me. I didn’t know much, really anything, about the Bible. I didn’t know Christian songs. I knew little about praying. I certainly didn’t know anything about the Holy Spirit –… Continue Reading “Heart Filler…”

What’s it worth?

Worth. That’s a heavy word. So many contexts. The value of an item for purchase versus our budget. The time required for an outcome versus our schedule. Encounters that cause us to pause and ask: is it worth it? Consciously or unconsciously we weigh… Continue Reading “What’s it worth?”

For the Joy…

Caught in joy – that moment after working for months on a project, it’s finished, and you get the big check or promotion. That moment after training for months on end and you complete the race in record time. That moment after going through… Continue Reading “For the Joy…”

What’s Left?

I love a celebration – but sometimes in the hurry and scurry meaning is lost. What remains (and was there before) is a whole lot better. Chocolate bunnies and plastic baskets are done. What’s left? The miracle and the sacrifice. I’m pondering these things… Continue Reading “What’s Left?”

Restless…

Easter – there is no more momentous event. Someone, a perfect Someone, was willing to make the absolute sacrifice – making it possible for you and me…to live forever. What kind of crazy love is that? The best, the only true. I’m thinking about… Continue Reading “Restless…”

All Times…

Sometimes I let people down. Do you? Sometimes I let myself down. It’s gotten harder in our world of instant everything. To take the time to think before we speak, act, react – seems archaic. So there’s face time, instant messaging, texts, and more.… Continue Reading “All Times…”

Treasure…

Wish I could freeze time – little feet that toddle, bright eyes seeing all as new – a grandson. I wanted to freeze time with all my children, but it marched on. And here I am, Maam Maam to a little one who finds… Continue Reading “Treasure…”

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… Continue Reading “You Are Qualified…”

You’re Surrounded…

Sometimes just need to be held? I know, me too. My seven month old grandson too. He’ll play, then turn and see me, and crawl right up lifting little arms. Bet God wishes that’s what we would do – when we wonder what to… Continue Reading “You’re Surrounded…”

HAPPY TODDLER PLAYTIME
