Comfort in the Darkness

June 5, 2020 | Comments Off on Comfort in the Darkness

Pain. I feel it pulling at me, violently dragging me out of darkness and into awareness. I fight against it, pushing back, wanting to stay in the peaceful nothingness of the dark. But it’s not to be, as I open my eyes and immediately become ill. I have the worst headache I’ve ever experienced in […]

Move Forward

May 29, 2020 | Comments Off on Move Forward

For the past few years, our women’s ministry has challenged us to pick a word for the year. I’ve had words like “joy”, “restore”, “rest”—easy words—yet words I felt the Lord was leading me to. This year I was struggling to find a word. The word “stronger” kept coming to mind, but I hadn’t settled […]

Peace in the Storm

May 15, 2020 | Comments Off on Peace in the Storm

It’s 11:45pm and my phone is ringing. Normally, I would be asleep but for some reason, tonight I’m having trouble going to sleep. I look to see who is calling so late, and see a picture of my daughter. I think to myself, “this not good.” Sure enough, she is calling because she needs help. […]

Living in Joy Instead of Expectation

May 8, 2020 | Comments Off on Living in Joy Instead of Expectation

Something about adult birthdays and Mother’s Day tends to be a letdown. In my dream world, all my responsibilities would magically disappear on these days. I would do whatever my heart desired, and there would not be dishes piling up in the sink, nor clothes waiting to be folded, nor messes being made. Alas, the […]

I’ve Hit the Wall…Again

May 1, 2020 | Comments Off on I’ve Hit the Wall…Again

When this whole virus pandemic became a reality to me in early March, I hit the wall. As we had done for about 25 of the 27 years we have lived in Augusta, we were busily preparing our house for our Masters rental. There’s a rhythm that happens every year toward the end of February […]

Worth Fighting For

April 24, 2020 | Comments Off on Worth Fighting For

I am convinced that one of the simplest pleasures in life is driving with the windows down. That sun-kissed, hair-blowing, music-blaring kind of feeling. It’s one of the easiest ways I can describe Spring in a moment. This may not be true by any means, but that rush of joy and excitement of being alive […]

Carried by Community

April 17, 2020 | Comments Off on Carried by Community

The Fall of 2019 was a cavernous pit of misunderstanding God’s work in my life. Questioning His desires and even doubting His will. If you have visited this blog before, then you’re familiar with the root of all of this, but last time I wrote I was still sitting in uncertainty just working to remind […]

Don’t Waste Your Quarantine

April 10, 2020 | Comments Off on Don’t Waste Your Quarantine

Well, this definitely doesn’t look like the blog I was originally going to post.  I had it in my mind that I needed to get it written before we went on vacation. Now, I’m wondering what day it is and how we are going to use the next 6 hours before our sons go to […]

Steps to the Cross: Redeemer

April 6, 2020 | Comments Off on Steps to the Cross: Redeemer

Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last. – Luke 23:46 Over the past seven weeks we have journeyed through the last words of Christ and the tabernacle furnishings. And each week we have drawn nearer and nearer […]

Steps to the Cross: Way-Maker

March 27, 2020 | Comments Off on Steps to the Cross: Way-Maker

When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. – John 19:30 Tetelestai! Nowhere in history do we find a more powerful, yet grace-filled statement. Tetelestai! It is finished, it has been accomplished, it has been paid, it has been fulfilled, it has been consummated […]
