God Sees Me

God Sees Me

My husband, Nick, and I are in Thailand!  Yes, we’ve got two different conferences to attend for work, but in between, we’re also taking a break to enjoy Thai food, tropical breezes, and sunrises over the ocean.  My mom was recently hospitalized with yet...

God Makes The Ordinary…Extraordinary!

God Makes The Ordinary…Extraordinary!

Read Matthew 5-7 Autumn! It whispers to me to come out and see. There is an old wooden sign in my laundry room that says, ”Come and sit with me and watch the birds and the butterflies." Summer humidity is not my friend, so when the days become crisp and cooler, I...

I Witness

Momentary brilliance where majesty breaks through the narrows as light,cryptic and veiled, dances with shadows,sifting textures and shifting patterns above the earthen stage,to a soundtrack of thesoft breeze through pine trees. I witness the artist presence of Godas...

In the Shadows

In the Shadows

“Only the Shadow knows!”1 “A shadowy figure appeared through the mist.”2 “Come back. Even as a shadow, even as a dream.” 3 Shadows… They often imply something dark, hidden, illusive, or perhaps even sinister.  They often conjure up gloomy feelings like fear,...

Engraved

While preparing to share a biblical study of the word tattoo with my 23-year-old tattooist grandson, Jonathan, my eyes and heart were reproved, but rejoicing followed.  I call these moments, "Ouch hallelujahs."  It's like going to the chiropractor to get an...
