Breaking & Prayer…

How broken our world is. Tragedy is reality for so many. And for those who watch from afar, do our hearts break?  In our own backyard do we not see how life is no longer precious – if it’s inconvenient. The unplanned pregnancy, the…

Rest…

Some nights sleep is illusive. I’m not fretting about anything in particular. And weariness isn’t really in my mind or body – could it be soul rest is missing? In this world, that wouldn’t be a hard thing to miss out on. Just when…

Inside…

Remember the old saying: ‘It’s what’s on the inside that counts’. I thought that meant how good of a person I was or should strive to be. My efforts. Then came a time when I read this: “We are all infected and impure with…

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…

Light Shine…

A zillion stars dance across a velvet sky as fire flies flit below. The wonder of the Great Smoky Mountains. Unplug for a few days with me. If you share in the free gift of salvation, let the Light in you shine. If you…

I’m realizing days in this world often speak these words: ‘Lord, why?’ Whether it’s the saddest of stories half a world away, or right at home in what seems the worst. Ken Ham (Answers In Genesis founder) says “I now see God was using…

RESToration…

Projects – a lot of work. Restoring something – an old chair or an old house requires…yikes, patience. I’m wondering if Jesus has ever said ‘yikes’ as He takes us on to restore us to Him? For some the restoration of our spirit by…
