Unsettling…

Normal is no more. Years of normal definitely tell me this isn’t it. Sheltering in place – like during a storm, only the weather isn’t the issue. Covering faces and hands. Avoiding hugging, not getting close. Jobs gone in a matter of days. Unsettling…

What Next?

I woke up early (too early) recently and found my mind drifting to insignificant things and becoming irritated easily. Getting up, I sat in the dark – and though it took a while, I figured it out. Anxiety. Whether it’s corona virus or our…

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…

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…

A Covering…

Today’s temperature is struggling to stay in the sixties and the wind is blowing. Roll your eyes if you want, but this south Florida girl is shivering. Where’s the blankets? There’s a new trend, supposed to help with sleep, with anxiety, and all kinds…

Better His Presence…

Sometimes the most fun days are those spent sitting and laughing with someone we love. My hubby, my best friend, my children, and now grandchildren. Their presence making life sweet. Sometimes a quiet, no-interruption day complete with breezes and mountains and a good book…

HAPPY TODDLER PLAYTIME
