What Will This Year Be Like, I Wonder?

December 29, 2018 | Comments Off on What Will This Year Be Like, I Wonder?

If you’re like most, packed boxes brimming with bubble wrap and Christmas décor line your hallways and await a trip to the attic. My decorations still adorn the mantel, deck the halls and walls, and adorn the tree, as our family continues to celebrate the season until after ringing in the New Year. Whatever your…

Light of a Memory

December 14, 2018 | Comments Off on Light of a Memory

Now it’s not just written words which bring about memories. Maybe your family is similar to mine, and during this time of year tends to swap stories. I’m talking about those sweet inside jokes that have been handed down for years, and yet still make everyone laugh. Or maybe there are precious memories you hold…

Concert of Prayer and Praise

December 7, 2018 | Comments Off on Concert of Prayer and Praise

I’ll never forget the first time I experienced a Concert of Prayer and Praise. After I witnessed my first, I begged the Lord for an opportunity to not only allow me to be a participant in, but a conduit of this kind of Spirit-filled reality. True to form, God took me up on my desire…

Ode to Clanking Cups

November 30, 2018 | Comments Off on Ode to Clanking Cups

As a young girl I remember a beautiful song my mother would sing in church. A story-like song, it told the familiar tale of the woman at the well. The woman was searching for something to satisfy her lost and lonely soul. Read these words from the song, Fill My Cup, Lord by Richard E. Blanchard,…

A Joyful Noise

November 23, 2018 | Comments Off on A Joyful Noise

Often a repetitive melody resonates inside of me, and with that resounding song, God develops within a theme He wishes to teach me. The name of the current hum in my heart? Contentment. It seems that God continues infusing the songs in my heart with the need to choose an attitude of gratitude, rather than…

Joyfully Thankful

Shhhhh, look!” my grandmother, Oma, said as we reached the end of the long driveway. She pointed with one of her manicured fingernails at the deer standing in the headlights. “He’s so still, that’s incredible!” There in the back seat of the car, all of us tried to contain our laughter. I remember clamping a…

Dawning of Thankfulness

November 9, 2018 | Comments Off on Dawning of Thankfulness

We awakened before dawn, bundling in blankets and sweatshirts, before grabbing a warm cup of tea and walking down to the beach. There in the cold sand, we settled, the steam rising from our mugs as we looked to the horizon. Deep purple clouds dipped and tucked along the expanse of water, perfect impersonations of…

Give Thanks!

November 2, 2018 | Comments Off on Give Thanks!

As I read Psalm 106 the other morning, God reminded me of His faithfulness and steadfast love. Describing the Israelites’ plight through the desert, their sin and disobedience, their idolatry, their continuous desire to do as they pleased, this Psalm reveals the heart of God to forgive, redeem, and love even when His people forsake…

From Darkness to Light

October 26, 2018 | Comments Off on From Darkness to Light

Have you ever feared? You may have just laughed and nodded, thinking “What kind of a question is that?” Of course, you’ve known fear—don’t we all? I don’t think I would ever have considered myself a fearful person – not until I got married.  I think the closeness to other people brings that out –…

Unseen Foes and Spider Webs

October 19, 2018 | Comments Off on Unseen Foes and Spider Webs

Have you ever had a pair of shoes that were your “go to”? They’re good for anything. For that quick trip to the store, a run in the park, a workout, comfortable for days when you know you’ll be standing for hours, and the list goes on.  They’re the best of shoes, but the problem…
