This is How I Fight My Battles

August 2, 2019 | Comments Off on This is How I Fight My Battles

In her book, Fervent, Priscilla Shirer says, “If I were your enemy, I’d disguise myself and manipulate your perspectives so that you’d focus on the wrong culprit—your husband, your friend, your hurt, your finances, anything or anyone except me. Because when you zero in on the most convenient, obvious places to strike back against your problems,…

Letting Go to Spring Forth

July 26, 2019 | Comments Off on Letting Go to Spring Forth

My hand aches from clenching my fist as the phlebotomist tries to find a vein. He sees the one he wants and goes for it. “You’re going to feel a pinch,” he says. I brace myself but don’t look away. Watching appeals to me for some odd reason. Much to my surprise, I feel nothing—not…

When God Says ‘No’

July 19, 2019 | Comments Off on When God Says ‘No’

Last week a mom spoke to me about her recent heartache and I believe Empty Nesters will understand.  Her adult child was hospitalized, and everything in that mom wanted to take off and be fully available to help.  However, circumstances made it impossible. There’s something in a mama’s heart that wants to get to the situation and…

The Bucket List

July 12, 2019 | Comments Off on The Bucket List

A friend sent these words by Steve Bezner to me, and I must say, they were enough to stop me in my tracks. “Sometimes I joke about what I’d do if I had one day left to live. Eat junk, go crazy, etc. Today it hit me: Jesus knew. And He washed feet.” Do you…

Light My Path

July 5, 2019 | Comments Off on Light My Path

It would be really bad if I tripped and hurt something.  No sooner had the thought run through my mind then my ankle gave out and I fell to a knee. There was a moment of pause as I assessed the situation and realized nothing was truly hurt—maybe my pride, but nothing major. It was…

“The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.” – Psalm 18:10 Where do you turn when you’re in need? What do you do when you’re afraid? Who do you talk to when you have a problem? These were questions my friend, Holly, asked a group…

Digging Deeper

June 14, 2019 | Comments Off on Digging Deeper

Summer is a perfect time to try something new or find relaxing rhythms that might last until next spring.  Whether you read more, cook more, get outside more with your kids (who are home all the time, eat everything, and are always asking “are we there yet?”), the longer days of summer are full of…

You Will Walk Free

June 7, 2019 | Comments Off on You Will Walk Free

I’m a visual person. But not in the way you’re thinking. Perhaps there is a term for it that I’m unaware of—but my form of visual learning comes through words that create pictures. It is no shock to me as I tend to view and see things in this way. Perhaps it is a way…

R.E.S.T.

May 31, 2019 | Comments Off on R.E.S.T.

Solitude. Quiet. Sleep. Freedom from busyness. An unhurried and peaceful way of living. All of these words paint a picture of rest to me. Lazy afternoons. Unhurried mornings. Hours and hours to read, write, or think. But those kinds of days—they make movies, not my calendar. On the precipice of 2019, God entrusted with me…
