This is the Life…

It’s different – being older. When my favorite three year old comes over and we come up with ideas of what to do next we both go full speed saying: “Let’s do it!” I think at three there is only one speed – full…

Quiet…

Deep in thought lately, needing time before putting it into words. Ever have times like that? Times where you just have to – need to – be a little quiet? I’m kind of loud sometimes. Life is loud lots of times. But God speaks…

Just Ask…

When I was young I was teased a lot about being quiet. I came to truly dislike the ‘cat got your tongue’ phrase. I was a listener. I prefer the intimacy of relationships. There would be friends and family alike who would be surprised…

Which Way…

Stepping out of one year into the next – a last day becomes a first, as seconds tick one into the other. Odd how we think up ‘resolutions’ or aspire to better this or that just because of a date on the calendar. We’re…

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…

Get Up…

Sometimes sleeping til the alarm clock goes off just doesn’t happen. Usually I’ll lay there trying to find my way back to dreamland. Lately I just give up and get up. I’m thinking it’s a wake-up call and I’m finding the Caller knows what…

Such a Difference…

As I ponder words – a storm is brewing. Strong – full of wind, rain, lightening – a force for destruction. Will we be in it’s path? What will it reap? Questions swirl like a hurricane’s eye. But time and again over the last…

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…

How to Live…

Heard this recently but not sure who to credit for saying it: “If He thought we worth dying for, isn’t He worth living for?” This is what Christians and non-Christians alike miss daily: living for HIM. Self is such an imposer. Our focus trends…

In Between…

1938-2011, July 23-27, choose a span of time. Notice the commonality: the hyphen. From point a to point b. A dash, in time. We live here in between. Between our first breath on earth and our last. Time here never seems long enough. Mortality…
