A Bird’s Eye View

I took this picture from a bird’s eye view . . . Can anyone guess what this is? Perspective is a crazy thing. It can make things look so big they are insurmountable. Sounds like life sometimes doesn’t it? Imagine standing down in the bottom of this canyon. Looking up makes me tired. That’s a lot of steps. All through

Into The Blue

Climbing through the clouds early one morning on a short flight to Houston, the pilot announced we were heading to 23,000 ft. We passed through the final layers and burst into the clear air above. The blueish horizon of clouds lay just beneath the line giving a clue to where the sun was about to make its appearance. I should

Happy New Year 2017

Raising our four kids who were born in five and a half years was anything but dull and certainly never boring. If I wasn’t pregnant and nursing, there were two in diapers at the same time – twice – the first three were born in two and a half years. Then along came number four three years later. If you

Wrap Up 12.25.16

I have spent considerable hours reading and rereading the account of Jesus’ birth, crucifixion and resurrection in the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.  It has been fascinating. Four parallel accounts. Each differs without contradiction in the details because of who they were writing to and their backgrounds, but the most beautiful part of all is the main

Wrap Up 12.24.16

Moving from the empty manger waiting for Jesus’ arrival, to the empty air when Jesus spoke no words, we arrive at the cross. After the crucifixion, Jesus’ body was taken from the cross and placed in a tomb nearby. The disciples, followers and family were stunned. The only reminder of what had just happened stood on the hill at Golgotha

Wrapping Up 12.18.16

Following are three mini posts I recently made. As I spent time exploring light, I found myself asking about the places in me that had not yet seen light. Empty. That’s the word that kept coming to mind. Thanks for following along with the discussion – as always, please comment and be sure to subscribe so we can stay connected

Learning Boldly to Create the New

Change definitely owns its reputation for being difficult. The change that comes unexpectedly from nowhere. The kind we aren’t prepared for. Loss through death, divorce, and even addiction bring such change. As holidays approach, the loss grows bolder, reminding us of what no longer is. This time for me it was divorce. After more than 36 years of marriage, my

Wrapping Up 12.11.16

Light is our life source. We have artificial light we rely on as the sun sets. You can see the lights coming on below as the sun makes its exit for the day. But that only works as long as we have electricity. Remember the last time yours went out? The darkness was unsettling and if you are like me,

Light of the World – Part Two

Continuing my light conversations, here are the next three. I pray great peace will fall into the parts of your hearts that need it the most. Open yourself to the possibility of allowing God to move into those recesses you have kept hidden from Him. Be sure to subscribe to the blog.   Light intrigues me. It illuminates. It dispels

Light of the World

Following is part one of a series of mini devotionals I shared last week. I pray you will enjoy them and discover some new encouragement as Christmas approaches. This is a time to celebrate Christ’s arrival but it is a challenging time for so many. There is a joyful sadness – the blend of the eternal mixed with the earthly.
