The Goal – Ask God

. . . But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! 1 Corinthians 13:12 The Message Life. If you have lived many years on this earth, you probably have experienced ups and downs.

Even In The Small

I walked past this guy hanging on the wall. I don’t know his name. How does he manage to balance the unique set of body parts he has been given? He manages because his Creator’s design works. He has everything he needs. I’m reminded of people I know. Looking at the circumstances of their lives, it’s hard to imagine how

The Beautiful Butterfly

Looking up at the hanging baskets at the nursery recently, I spotted this beauty. The sun was behind her and the light – incredible. It was as though she posed for me. Really! I mean, look how she’s showing off! Her beauty moves me. My heart was amazed at the detail of her design and the colors! God spared nothing

Friday, Saturday and Sunday

It’s Friday. This cross stands in front of a very old church in a tiny town out in the mountains of Honduras. I’ve been thinking about Jesus a lot today. My hands and feet have been busy doing mundane tasks. My mind has been very focused on what happened one Friday afternoon when the world changed. Jesus hands and feet

Unsuspecting

Have you ever been blind sided? Maybe a bill showed up. Maybe a bad report from the doctor or news of a job change? Maybe life just hasn’t turned out like you had planned? Relationships in families become difficult, your company is bought out and a fresh, full of energy young boss shows up, new neighbors move in and the

The Last Alarm

  Sitting across the valley about 20 miles away, it was easy to watch the volcano erupt with awe and wonder but with little concern for our safety. We were on the east side of the city of Antigua, Guatemala. I was excited I had my camera with the best zoom lens I own. This was the largest eruption we

When My Is Becomes My Was

. . . and therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the LORD is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who long for Him. Soon after we moved to Danbury, Connecticut, in 1982, a sign caught my eye in the craft store. Quilting classes offered – call …-…. Our friendship took life as

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
