Wonder-full Plans…

I’m noticing lately all us wanderers. I can’t help but think: what if, instead, we were wonderers? We wander around stores looking for gifts. We wander around outdoors seeking quiet. We wander all our days and what do we find? Emptiness mostly. So I’m…

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…

Silenced…

There’s a lot of voices shouting these days. If you’re loud enough, does that mean you win? Reminds me why I love early morning. When dusty sky sparkles with a few last diamonds and all is quiet – everything seems brand new. Each soft…

I Forgot…

I forgot – again. Forgot that I’m not alone. Forgot that fear is an enemy. Forgot that now isn’t all there is. But this is what God tells me, tells you: “And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the…

Surprise…

When was the last time you were surprised? Excited? I’m pretty hard to surprise. Drives my hubby crazy. Top it off with being very practical, so I don’t get too excited about things either. But there have been those occasions – when I was…

A Little Less Glitter…

What a noisy world. Constantly bombarding us with the latest scandal – and then there’s news of volcanoes erupting, submarines lost, hurt after hurt. Weary ears yearn for quiet, for all this to just stop, even for a moment. But it doesn’t. So can…

Today…

With calendars chock-full weeks ahead of time and what seems like an endless list of special days (birthdays, holidays, national who knows what day) we tend to live in tomorrow. So much to be done, to look forward to or to dread. Sometimes I’m…

Promises, Promises…

When I was little girl my friends and I would often say to each other: ‘Promise?’ An expectation that whatever we just told each other, we would follow through. Little girl years are a great learning ground for life – not all promises are kept….

Heart View…

Recently I watched a time lapse clip of earth from space. Captivating – but not so much the familiar continents and seas or even the cloud covers. What was fascinating was that – day or night – there was a halo of light circling…

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…

Deep Roots…

     Such wonder is all around – constantly amazing us who can only imitate the  Creator and His creation. A tree that was bare, not a leaf in site a week ago, is now providing shade alive with thousands of leaves fluttering in the…

Crown Me…

     Every girl loves a tiara, sparkly and brilliant… Not many ‘queens’ left  – their crowns are on display in some museum or high security place for others to ooh and aah. One day all the crowns – be they rhinestone or diamond, be they for the prom…
