Must Listen

I’m not particularly athletic. At times I can be clumsy. But one thing I love, and wish I had started when I was much younger, is hiking in the mountains. I can’t do the strenuous trails. But I can walk long and slow and… Continue Reading “Must Listen”

Endurance

My mother had lots of sayings. When I would be sassy, she’d remind me: You get a lot more with honey than vinegar. When things weren’t going so well for herself or others she would say: Into each life a little rain must fall.… Continue Reading “Endurance”

Open Hands

My hands are starting to reveal my age. I can still picture my mother’s hands and I adore my daughter’s hands, beautiful. Their hands and mine have changed countless diapers, cooked countless meals, and wiped up countless spills. They are hands that have cuddled… Continue Reading “Open Hands”

Messy

So here’s what makes me crazy – messes. I don’t have a spotless house, especially these days. Four days a week it’s invaded by pattering little feet leaving sticky spots, handprints, and sand everywhere. Seriously, I can’t keep up with the spots on the… Continue Reading “Messy”

Surprise!

I don’t like surprises. (Weird, I know.) In the many years I’ve been married, my husband has maybe been able to surprise me once or twice. I’m just one of those people who likes knowing what’s next. Our sweet group of Jesus lovers is… Continue Reading “Surprise!”

Don’t Swerve

Ever had a toenail removed? Me either – til last night. An injury turned into a problem and, though I tried to ignore it for a couple of weeks, the pain caused an urgent care visit. In our crazy times, it’s hard to keep… Continue Reading “Don’t Swerve”

Why

I miss wonder. I’m sure I was once in awe at a dragonfly, a popsicle, a walk in the garden. Kids ask a lot of questions. Why is your hair crazy gwammy? How are your tacos cooking gwammy? Did Jesus make the legos too?… Continue Reading “Why”

You Know

Just a couple days and 2020 will be done. Do you know what 2021 holds? If we’ve learned anything in the 365 days since we looked forward to a new year, it’s this: there’s much we do not know. Don’t know if there will… Continue Reading “You Know”

Still Doing Stupid

Right now, in the midst of trying to capture the wonder, it’s more like caught in the weary. Ever been in that place where things were going along just fine – then suddenly without warning everything is a tangled mess. How easily we wound… Continue Reading “Still Doing Stupid”

Longing

We’re at that point: the place somewhere between the excitement of the approaching celebration and the fulfillment of all the plans and preparations. The longing time. Longing, in some ways, to move on because it seems life is too hectic. But really longing for… Continue Reading “Longing”
