When We Need Naps And Nourishment

I sat on the side of my bed and thought, “I should use this time to pray.” Because I am basically on a forced fast as my mouth heals from getting wisdom teeth removed. I’ve had a lot on my mind and my heart lately. Still sitting there I think, ” yes, I’ll light a […]

Welcome To My New Website

I’ve been on a little break from writing online. I spent a month fully focused on the book. No, I didn’t finish it, in case you were wondering. But it was a quiet peaceful break from everything online. I had a writing coach look at my table of contents and some of my chapters. A […]

The Peace of the Ever-Present God

I read this verse this morning and my first thought was an image of a man floating in the ocean at night after a shipwreck. There are some saints I feel a little safer trying to imitate. I would never pick Paul. A man content in any circumstance. A man who needed to be blind […]

God Walking In The Cool Of The Evening

  We were always meant to work. That is why the desire is in each of us. We all want to create and tend, to build and multiply all that we have been given. Even the lazy among us has a desire for the results of work. There is just a disconnect in what they […]

The Uncontainable God

Uncontainable. The attribute I find the most comforting is this, His omnipresence. The human idea we can keep Him sequestered in only certain corners of life and the world, reminds me of how much at times I want to hide away or even go as far as denying Him existing right there beside me in […]

When The Almighty Hides Us

I read a story from Corrie Ten Boom in her book, A Prisoner And Yet. Corrie tells about her experience of arriving at a concentration camp and passing through the guards searching for any contraband. She had a bible hidden in her dress. She wanted to keep this bible so she prayed: “Lord, cause now […]

The Comfort of Being Hemmed In

I love small jewel box type rooms. The ones Victorian houses are famous for. Every room is it’s own sequestered nook. No modern day open floor plan where all the family activities are done in the same big open space. The Victorians made lovely draped in rooms. Specific rooms for specific activities. The library for […]

If I Walk Into The Bramble

It is not that God hides his path from us, He does not take us down pathways only to leave us there with nothing but an intersection ahead. I imagine God standing there on the main path watching me as I run into some beautiful meadow and pick flowers to take home and put in […]
