Not The Oasis I Want

Not The Oasis I Want

One of my favorite ladies invited me to go on a vacation with her. Woohoo!!!  Words cannot explain how much I want this!  Time with a wonderful friend.  Time away from the hamster wheel of life.  Time to sleep in.  Time to be still.  Time […]

Let Him

Let Him

Our sweet baby has croup.  He is sick and needs help to be well.  Yet, he won’t let me help him.  He’s refusing to drink fluids.  He’s refusing to take medicine.  He’s refusing to say “yes” to me. Baby, just let me help you!  His resistance makes […]

Just For Him

Just For Him

Each little ballerina was beyond ready to dance for their beloveds but traffic was terrible that night and everyone was late for an event no one should be late for. Ballet Recitals are important.  They are so important to a child’s heart. Eventually the room was all […]

Going With The Seasons

Going With The Seasons

The constant clouds sit low this time of year.  Wispping around the bare branches of sleeping trees.  And the landscape turns gray. Her tendrils of brilliant red and orange leaves bounced against the colorless world.   One valiant part of her resisting the winter curse. I […]

Like My Son Lives For Candy

Like My Son Lives For Candy

He’s almost three.  Part baby. Part man.  He still runs to mummy when he gets hurt.  But he also runs into the power of having choice and control and adventure.  I love this age.  Cute, spunky and he says the most glorious things.  This is the age […]

More Than I Can Handle

More Than I Can Handle

Luke 6 is heart surgery.  These words from Jesus are challenging and transformational.  We need them just like the Hebrews needed to re-learn the culture of God after He brought them out of Egypt.  Jesus’ words are hard words to hear.   And beautiful words to hear.  And painful […]
