For the most part my mind would focus on breathing but sometimes my mind would conjure up some horrific images of what could happen to me on… Continue reading This Is My Father’s World

Living Fully Beloved

Beloved, you do faithfully whatever you do for the brethren and for strangers. 3 John 1:5 We went for a short vacation to Montana. Where we stayed was surrounded by mountains. Sitting outside, the wind blew a chill June breeze that reminded me summer has not yet arrived here in Montana. I could see snow… Continue reading Living Fully Beloved

Seeing God’s Goodness in the Land of the Living.

I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of God in the land of the living.

Did he echo David the Psalmist as he laid there watching the… Continue reading Seeing God’s Goodness in the Land of the Living.

Act Medium

https://www.insight.org/resources/article-library/individual/act-medium When we used to live on a military base there were certain people that had a popular bumper sticker that said something about how being a wife of someone in the military was the hardest job in the military... something like that.

"It doesn't have to be the blue iris, it could be weeds in a vacant lot, or a few small stones; just pay attention, then patch a few words together and don't try to make them elaborate, this isn't a contest but a doorway into thanks, and a silence in which another voice may speak."… Continue reading The Ease Of Being Invited To Simply Pray

Small Dinners

What we allow in and what we say no thank you to. What we compromise on and what we hold our ground on. What is… Continue reading Small Dinners

All My Fresh Springs Shall Be In Thee

It's time. Something new is coming to life slowly as the ice melts. Nothing can stay the same. Life moves. Souls move about and a chronicler writes of God's eyes roaming to and fro. Even God does not seem still. Yet, I know He is my peace when I cannot rest. He keeps me still.… Continue reading All My Fresh Springs Shall Be In Thee

A Season At Home

klimt “Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”― Edith Sitwell One winter I napped with a newborn daughter beside me, or sometimes she laid on my chest, but either way as the… Continue reading A Season At Home
