Time to ponder time

I find myself snuggled into bed tonight and thinking about time. Old songs flood my memory. Time in a bottle, time ticking away, and even too much time on my hands pound rhythmically in my mind. What is it about time? It’s drives our lives. Time to wake up, to be at work, and to Read More

Confidence in Christ

Absolute confidence?  Absolute, complete, total, utter, without waining confidence.  Have you ever had it?  You know, that sense you may have had as a kid when you knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you stuck the landing…aced the test…or crossed the finish line?  That moment in time when you know you need not Read More

Open your eyes and witness a symphony

Sometimes I think I’m blind.  Not necessarily blind in a sense of not being able to see my surroundings, but spiritually blind.  You know, blind to all of the work that is being done around me.  Blind to the beautiful tapestry of life God is lovingly weaving around me. This past week has been one Read More

More Than You Could Ever Imagine

We’ve been on quite a journey here recently.  Bricks, bricks, and more bricks.  Then, there was the battle, followed by a huge dose of forgiveness.  It’s been amazing to sit back the past few days, and watch all that the Lord is doing in my life.  He perfectly orchestrated all that is happening right now.

Let it Go

Forgive.  That’s a difficult word.  It’s one that is frequently thrown about in conversation,  People mess up, hurt us, break our trust, and immediately we are told to, “forgive and forget”.  We are supposed to move on.  “Let it go!”  Sorry!  I’m certain I’ve now inflicted you with the endless tune from Frozen playing away Read More

The Battle

Yesterday, we took a trip down pancake lane. I mean memory lane, with my sweet Gram.  We also learned in 2 Corinthians 2:9 that we don’t have to be perfect because God is.  He is perfect in our weakness.  So why don’t we cling to that reality?  Why don’t we grasp onto the power of Read More

Just When You Thought They Were Gone…Bricks Again

If you have joined me for the last two brick posts, you know that I apparently have an affinity for brick walls.  Running into them, being buried under them, and even carrying them around in my memory.  Some seem permanently attached to me.  How about you?  Do you ever feel like you’re carrying a tremendous Read More


A Ton of Bricks Part 2

As you can see from an early time in my life, I had an affinity for meeting brick walls.  This time would be different.  This time is forty years later.  There is no physical brick wall for me to run headlong into.  However, the figurative is far more painful, and a much heavier load to Read More

Brick Wall

A Ton of Bricks Part 1

Apparently, I have an affinity for bricks.  The term, “hit me like a ton of bricks” seems to find it’s way into everyday conversation quite frequently.  I’m not exactly sure why bricks mean much to me.  Nor when I would even have been faced with a ton of them in real life.  However, figuratively…I have Read More

I don’t even like camping! Why now?

I am not a girl who likes camping.  Forget roughing it out in the fresh air, pitching my tent, and roasting marshmallows over an open fire.  This chick is much happier in the bug free indoor arena.  I love a nice snuggly bed, soft blanket, and indoor plumbing.  I don’t do bugs and port-a-potties.  Just Read More
