Blessing Reminders

Blessings are sometimes overlooked. I’m totally guilty. A friend of mine said to me today, “blessings come very easily for you. It’s not a bad thing, you’ve been such a blessing to other people and now you’re reaping that reward.” What? What blessings? Do you know that I’m praying for this, and this, and that? […]

Singing A New Song

One year ago… today…  I drove away from home. It’s the second time in my life when all my possessions were tucked away into a truck to be hauled miles and miles away from the place I called home. When I left Michigan, it was hard, but it was for work. I didn’t have a […]

Come out of Hiding You’re Safe Here with Me.

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine wrote a blog post… the kind that stands in front of us, pointing its finger and sticking its tongue out. Like, na na na na na naaaaa! “This one is just for you, buddy.” It was for me. Not all of it. I think some parts weren’t […]

Underface

Shel Silverstein has been one of my favorites since I was young. I still flip through pages of his poems and find my inner girl, my inner broken soul, and my underface. While the last several months have been really super and I’ve been blessed over and over by people who love me and I […]

Life Hurts – God Heals

How is someone supposed to feel when a Father dies? An unknown father. An absent father. A father who walked away from his own child father? I had a dad with whom I was raised and I also had a father that contributed to my creation who then abandoned my mom. My mom was married to […]

I wanna be like You, God.

“Are you ready to be less than a mere drop in the bucket–to be so totally insignificant that no one remembers you even if they think of those you served? Are you willing to give and be poured out until you are used up and exhausted–not seeking to be ministered to, but to minister?” ~~ […]

Conquering the beast.

The comparison monster. I suppose at one time or another in our lives, we’ll deal with it. I’ve been pretty fortunate not to have a face-to-face run in with the thing for many, many years… maybe since high school. And then I moved to Dallas. Suddenly, it’s all over me. Creeping over my shoulder when […]

Hope is Him…

The fact that I wrote about hope last year, on this Saturday – the in-between day – and that God is prompting the same topic on this Saturday – the in-between day – a year later shouldn’t surprise me. It’s been a difficult couple of weeks. I’ve been writing, but not really, a post about […]

Seeing me through His eyes

About ten days ago, I was given a challenge at my bible study. Of course, since one of my mottos is to never do anything alone that I can do with someone else; I challenged some of my friends to do it with me. And now, I’m sharing the challenge with you. The leader of […]

The day home met me in Nebraska

She walked in the room. My eyes met hers, I can’t say who saw who first, but there we were – eyes locked and her gentle wave of acknowledgement. I jumped up from my seat and as quickly as I could, without breaking into a run (like, who am I kidding, right?!), made my way […]
